All sequences will be instructed with variations for all levels. 

About the Instructor

Kate’s yoga journey began in 2016. She started attending Yoga classes regularly for both the mental and physical benefits it provides. After about a year of attending classes Kate flew to the Yoga capital of the world Rishikesh, India. She spent just over a month practicing the 8 limbs of the Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Each day was spent studying the asanas, pranayama and the rest of the sutras. She graduated with her 200-hour certified Yoga instructor certification in the beginning of January 2018. Since then, Kate has continued her education with certifications including chair yoga and the wounded warrior program – a nonprofit that offers free yoga to veterans and their families. She has been teaching yoga for 2 years with emphasis in vinyasa and classical Hatha.

Bald Cypress Tree Planting

Within every location, contains a story. The tale of our Bald Cypress trees go way back to the times before our park was established. Most of the bald cypress in southern Florida were harvested by the lumber industry by the

1940s leaving only isolated strands of cypress that were too difficult for loggers to reach. This devastated the bald cypress habitat…

Years later more bald cypress trees were destroyed by salt water intrusion, leaving the habitat almost demolished.

But there IS hope!

The goal of Jonathan Dickinson State Park staff and also with the help from Friends of JDSP is to help rebuild this habitat located on our property. The goal is to plant 63 acres of bald cypress. This absolutely cannot be done without the help of our community. Through generous donations, and wonderful volunteers, we hope to meet this goal sooner rather than later. And now, we need YOU!

Moonlight Bike Rides

We will watch the moon rise at before departing for a 12 mile ride. This is a very easy ride on paved flat trails at 8 mph. For half of the ride we will be on trails with no cars. For the other half we will ride the main road where there may be a few cars and the speed limit is 15-25 mph. Bring helmet, water, insect repellent.  Times change throughout the year.  See the calendar for dates and times.

Sunset Bike Rides

Join us as we enjoy the cool evening air and beautiful sunset, and take a leisurely bike ride around the park. We will be out for about 45 minutes and return. Hang out with your friends and make some new ones at this fun and exciting event. The bike ride is guided an explains different areas of the park.
