This series is designed to release stress and tension after the work day and will include breathing exercises, follow the 26 basic Kripalu postures, and a guided relaxation. All skill levels are welcome. Please bring a mat, and a cushion or towel to use as a prop.
6 classes, April 18th through May 23rd, will be held in the Paynes Prairie Visitor Center on Tuesday evenings from 7-8 pm. Hot tea will be available following the class.
Classes are free with park admission.
Participation is limited due to limited space, so please reserve your spot by RSVPing on this event page.
Be active while enjoying nature in your Florida State Parks.
Join us for a walk of approximately 3 miles on the La Chua Trail.
Meet us in the La Chua Trail parking lot.
We will walk at a pace that suits the group, or you're welcome to move at your own pace. If you're not up for the full 3 miles, you can rest and wait on a bench along the way, then join up with us again on our return, or simply turn around whenever you're ready. Join us and do what you can, and perhaps the next week you may be able to go a little further. On a similar note, if you'd like to keep your heart rate up and move a little faster, you're welcome to go your own pace and we'll catch up to you at the overlook or when we return.
Check the weather and dress accordingly. Bring a water bottle - there is a water fountain near the parking lot, but not anywhere else along the walk.
Please RSVP so that we can contact you if anything changes or the walk is cancelled for any reason.
Our intention is to offer Wellness Walks throughout the year, so if you're looking for a new routine to get out and be active, join us and we can help to keep you motivated!
Hosted by the Freewheel Project, here are the details from their event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1304834472941166/
Join the Freewheel Project, and Everything is Tourrible for a weekend celebration of bikes and parks. In honor of National Bike Your Park Day we will be leading an overnight bike trip to Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park. If you have ever thought about trying bike touring this trip is for you! If you are touring pro and want to meet other cyclists this trip is for you! If you are total loaner and just want to smash out a million miles we can accommodate! Our goal is get every one of the 50 campsites at Paynes Prairie filled up with a cyclist!
We will be taking a scenic route down and back to the park. On the way there we'll taking the "long way" taking the Hawthorne Trail to 325 then through beautiful Micanopy for... a total of 22 miles. Map here: https://goo.gl/maps/ bTmcXBiBMCp
On the way back we'll be taking a slightly shorter route going up 234 to connect back up to the Hawthorne trail for a total of 17 miles. Map here: https://goo.gl/maps/ Am97CZRj9Fm
Also if any of these distances sound too long there is an option for the very direct but less nice route straight up 441 back in town if needed. Map here: https://goo.gl/maps/ BThxF2n18522
You do not have to join in the group ride for this trip, but we will be leading no drop group rides to and from the park. We will be leaving Saturday morning from Freewheel at 10:00am. On Sunday we will be leaving the park at 12:00pm for the ride back and should be back in town by 3:00pm on Sunday
