Paint & SIP with Dee's tropical paint parties
Dee fell in love with Jamaica on a 2017 trip to Negril and made the bold decision to leave her life in Atlanta and make Jamaica her new home. She uses her self-taught (she also says God-taught) skills as an artist to bring delight to visitors to the island. This is a fun experience especially for groups that includes sipping on wine, patient guidance from the artist and tons of laughter.
Yoga with Cassanie
This one-hour lesson with Cassanie is life changing! Cassanie practices, teaches and is passionate about yoga. Her dedicated teaching assistants are the breath and the beautiful outdoor spaces of Jamaica. She says, “Yoga can help us discover all the jewels hidden inside of us waiting to be unveiled. It isn’t enough to practice, you have to be willing to allow the openness that comes from the practice to transform you.”
