Caribbean Wellness Rx
Join Maria del Carmen Rodriguez, an Afro-Latina from Maunabo, PR, and Micheal Riley, with roots from Kingston, Jamaica, for an exciting wellness event that will transport you to the beautiful Caribbean! Get ready to rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul at Caribbean Wellness Rx with Sound Healing and Pranayama Yoga and Meditation. This in-person event will take place at 599 Matianuck AVE. Immerse yourself in the vibrant culture as you explore various wellness practices inspired by Caribbean vibrations.
Sound healing, yoga, meditation, traditional herbal remedies, and all the other elements that Caribbean holistic wellness embodies will help you discover the secrets of living a healthy and balanced life. Don’t miss this opportunity to escape to paradise and embark on a wellness journey like no other!

What to expect:
The Caribbean Wellness Rx evening will begin with Micheal’s Mindful Movement Meditation Yoga session with ease and gentleness. Mindful movement meditation yoga is a low-impact technique that builds mind and body endurance. Michael’s soft-spoken voice will guide you to safe, easy, friendly stretching as you become more mindful and aware of your body movements, releasing and feeling beautiful energy as you develop a connection between your mind and body.
After your yoga session, you can lay back, get comfortable on your yoga mat, hug yourself with your blanket, rest your head on your pillow, and experience a sound healing session, also known as a sound bath, with vibrations and harmony that will awaken and nourish your mind, body, and spirit. Maria del Carmen will play singing bowls, Tibetan metal bowls, ocean and buffalo drums, chimes, and other instruments that will travel down to your cellular level. You will leave feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and reconnected to homeostasis.

What to bring:
Wear comfortable clothing, such as ex-sweats and yoga attire, and bring a yoga mat for both the Mindful Movement and Sound Healing sessions. Also, bring your favorite blanket, eye pillow, or anything that makes you feel warm and cozy at home. No previous yoga or sound healing experience is necessary.
