The Utah Division of Parks and Recreation has announced the kickoff of the Utah State Parks Yoga Series with Granogi, an outdoor adventure and yoga company.

The Yoga Series starts April 28 at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park and will continue along multiple parks across Utah — including a stop at Deadhorse Point State Park on May 12 — until concluding at Snow Canyon State Park on November 17.

In addition to Dead Horse Point State Park, the parks involved in the series include: Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, Wasatch Mountain State Park, Jordanelle State Park, Goblin Valley State Park, Red Fleet State Park, Rockport State Park, Snow Canyon State Park and Antelope Island State Park.

Each stop in the series gives visitors an opportunity to experience Utah’s state parks while participating in healthy activities. Participants arrive in the morning where they are greeted by a park ranger and given some information about each park’s history, geography and recreational opportunities.

From there, participants will join experienced instructors for group activities, a one- to two-mile hike, a yoga session, and ending with a meditation activity.

Participants are also welcome to stay in each park after activities have ended but must leave when the park closes for day use — unless they have also reserved a campsite.

Attendees will also receive a gift bag packed with yoga towels, journals, t-shirts, stickers and more.

The full calendar of yoga events and locations can be found online on Granogi’s Utah Yoga Series webpage at, as well as on the Utah State Parks website.

Entry into the state parks is included with participation in each yoga series stop.
