San Pedro’s newest yoga studio and spa, Science and Soul Wellness, just opened it’s doors to the public this past weekend with celebrations and a fundraiser held at its home location in Mahogany Bay Village.
Owner, Paulette Hardwood, organized an enjoyable afternoon social that included health snacks, sangria and festivities that included complimentary massages, aerial yoga demonstrations, paddle board yoga, dance presentations, a fashion show and including a silent auction to help raise funds for the SHINE organization.
The yoga studio and spa boasts high quality and an authentic yogic experience. They offer Aerial, Vinyasa, Yin, Hatha, Restorative, SUP yoga, sunrise/sunset poolside yoga and specialize in Ayurvedic healing and counseling. The spa features Ashiastu massage, expert deep tissue myofascial massage, reiki, poolside massage and healing work. All those fancy terms sound confusing, but you have to visit the studio to learn more about their services.
So besides introducing the services of Science and Soul Wellness, Paulette also gave back to the community during the event. All donations and proceeds from the silent auction, raffle, and massage went directly to SHINE, a Belize non-profit that benefits local young women. SHINE was founded by Miss San Pedro 2015, Michelle Nunez, and is run by herself and Mahogany Bay Village Marketing Director, Britney Travis.
Prizes were donated by the following sponsors: Mahogany Chocolate, Polish Salon, Blue Bonefish, Ambergreens, Road to Cayo, The Coffee Bar, Belize Fitness, Carole Goudreau, J&H Golf Carts, Paradice Cream, and RubiMoon.
Science and Soul Wellness is open from Monday through Friday, classes will be held at 7 am and 5:30pm. Saturday and Sunday, classes will be held at 9:30 am at the second floor of the Great House at Mahogany Bay Village. Check out their Facebook Page for their opening special rates.
