Most of us lead very busy lives these days, so being intentional about slowing down and enjoying some of the natural beauty that exists in Osceola County has never been more important. Wild Florida Airboats and Gator Park, one of Central Florida’s most beautiful natural attractions, that makes it possible to experience the headwaters of the everglades and amazing exotic animal encounters, recently opened up their gates to the community to enjoy their new Sloth Yoga class!

This exotic new experience allows participants to “stretch out” along with “Guy” the Sloth, while learning a few intermediate balance yoga poses. Positively Osceola can’t think of a more serene setting for a yoga experience than at Wild Florida, and it seems that the community agrees. Wild Florida’s yoga instructor, Emily Rivera, said their exciting new yoga class sold out online in just one day.


The Wild Florida sloth yoga class, which had 30 participants in their first event, will take place once a month on Saturday mornings under the Gator Pavilion, and will provide participants a wonderful opportunity to increase strength, flexibility, and heart health, while enjoying the perfect educational opportunity to learn more about these magnificent creatures. There will even be a chance to take a “slothie” (sloth selfie.)

Here’s a few things we learned at Wild Florida about sloths:

  • Sloths can sleep 18-20 hours a day
  • can live up to 20-30 years in the wild
  • appear green because mold grows on their fur to help camouflage in the wild
  • are related to ant eaters
  • eat food with their eyes closed

There are so many amazing places to experience in Osceola County, and with Wild Florida only 15 minutes south of St. Cloud, it’s an absolute must to experience this natural Florida gem!
