RECAP: Wukkout!® x caribBEING House

Earlier this month, Wukkout!® teamed up with caribBEING to hold a Wukkout!® class outside of the caribBEING House on Flatbush Avenue.  Although our first attempt at a class got rained out, we were fortunate enough to have beautiful weather for our second event.  Sugarcane Island was on hand providing delicious raw sugarcane juice for all participants (that ginger lime is the TRUTH) and The Granola Whey brought healthy cookies for everyone to enjoy post-Wukkout!®  We will definitely be doing more classes with caribBEING next spring/summer, so be sure to subscribe to the email list if you'd like to be notified about events.   

Thank you to everyone who came out, we are always grateful for your support!  Click through below to see the rest of the photos from the event; thank you caribBEING for the pictures!

Earlier this month, we had the pleasure of being invited to teach a Wukkout!® class for The Flatbush Junction BID's inaugural "After the Fete" event.  It was a festive celebration of Caribbean culture and community featuring face painting, steel pan bands and the caribBEING House.  Thank you to everyone who came out, we are always grateful for your support!
