Experience nature in a unique, mindful way with natural history interpreter Kristina Wheeler and yoga teacher/Master Naturalist Debbie Seabrook. Guided meditation and gentle movement followed by periods of discovery and identification of flora and fauna precipitate stress relief, mood enhancement, and clarity of mind. No prescriptions necessary. Binoculars and open minds are all you need.
Debbie completed her 200 hour registered yoga instructor certification through Holy Cow Yoga Center teacher training program in Charleston in 2012. Since then, she has logged countless hours cultivating her own practice and honing her teaching skills leading classes on a regular basis. She completed the Master Naturalist certification in Fall of 2013. Her passions have found a partnership in leading Caw Caw Interpretive Center's Walk & Restorative Yoga Program for over a year. Nature Immersion combines her two loves in an even deeper way presenting a platform for participants to experience the serenity and peace inherent in the natural world. Her goal is to make the mindfulness available from yoga and nature accessible to all.
Tess has been interested in nature and animals ever since she started catching salamanders and bugs in the creek behind her childhood home in Tennessee. She cultivated that passion while pursuing two wildlife related degrees in college and jobs in multiple states. While she enjoys being outside alone, she gets the most joy in helping others to be better students of nature. Sharing "did-you-know" facts, interpreting different habitats, and being obviously excited about even the smallest things are some of the ways she helps others to connect to their natural surroundings. Tess is the Natural History Interpretive Aide for the Charleston County Parks and an Educator for the Friends of Coastal South Carolina so, that she has the opportunity to teach all ages.
Kristina joined the Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission team in the fall of 2011 and now works as the Natural History Interpretation Specialist. “In this increasingly technological world, it is critically important to provide people with ways to make more connections to the natural world. And to have the chance to do this on a daily basis is incredibly rewarding.”
Every shell, leaf, insect, and feather holds Kristina’s interest, as she is a true student of the world. She thrives on birding, camping, mountain biking, hiking or kayaking in new places. She still loves to paddle around a Grumman when she can get her hands on one!
