Main Story: What’s Hot this Month
Namaste! What better spot to perfect your tree pose or downward dog, than on a rooftop overlooking the beautiful views of Seven Mile Beach. Rooftop Yoga is led by the lovely Chantelle Cooper on the roof of the Grand Cayman Beach Suites from 6 to 7 p.m., Monday to Thursday, and by Maegan Otto from 9 to 10 a.m. on Saturday. Drop-in sessions are $15, with packages lowering the price. Attending yogis will work through a series of poses, in what is both a physical, mental and emotional form of exercise.
Fancy some body art but don’t want the permanency of a tattoo? Why not try henna? Shilpa Tagalpallewar is a talented artist and henna practitioner, with stalls at the Cayman Craft Market on the waterfront in George Town on Mondays and Tuesdays, at Camana Bay Farmers & Artisan market every Wednesday, and the Cardinall Avenue craft market on Thursdays. As well as displaying her artwork and jewelry creations, she also offers her services as a henna artist, drawing intricate designs onto your skin which will fade away after a week or two.
Camana Bay does an excellent job of entertaining families at Halloween. A Monster Dash 5K kicks off festivities on Oct. 24, followed by the Moonlight & Movies: Halloween Series Oct. 27 to 31. Both the annual Halloween Spooktacular and a spooky themed Food Revolution cooking class hosted by Bon Vivant and Best Life, will take place on Oct. 31.
