HIKING, KAYAKING AND YOGA

A St. Augustine Weekend Vacation

Rejuvenate your body, refresh your mind, and brighten your energy in the Florida sunshine with yoga, hiking and kayaking. The expansive beaches, intimate trails and back waters that wind along the Matanzas and Tolomato Rivers adjacent to St Augustine are an ideal setting in which to enjoy yourself - body, mind and spirit.

Join us on Friday evening in our homey, upstairs kitchen to enjoy a cozy supper of soup, salad, fresh breads and wholesome spreads.

Start your day with sunrise practices in the fresh, ocean air at a protected, unspoiled, 4-mile beach minutes from Discovery.

In our bright, airy, yoga studio energize yourself with gentle, dynamic yoga, wholesome breathing practices, simple meditations, and deep relaxation. Core instructions, important anatomical cues and essential joint warm-ups minimize pain, strain and injury while optimizing your practice.

We will hike the Guana River Nature Preserve, a quintessential Florida forest featuring high canopies of mighty oak trees, magnolias and palms, and expansive wetlands that are home to a wide variety of migratory birds, waterfowl, owls, eagles, and hawks.

Let's explore the fascinating backwaters of the Tolomato River on a half day kayaking tour that may include sightings of manatees, dolphins and perhaps even a gator.

Experiment with yogic techniques for optimizing your activities, walking in alignment, letting go of worry, expanding awareness, moving from your core, stillness in motion, connecting with nature, building strength, slowing down, and being in the moment.

Finish your day with an evening walk through the exceptionally lovely historic district of old St Augustine. Enjoy one of the many unique restaurants and shops that stretch from the bay front to the heart of the Old Town, or stroll the waterfront and maybe even find a rainbow.
