Mindfulness in the forest. Be immersed inthe forest and connect with yourself and nature.

Forest bathing or Shinrin-Yoku is a natural wellbeing therapy originating from Japan. Gentle walking and mindfulness practice, we will open up all our senses to take in the forest atmosphere, whilst breathing in healing essential oils emitting from the trees.

With gentle walking enjoy a relaxing and insighful journey, tuning into nature and our inner selves, culminating with a traditional tea ceremony  and reflection on our experience.

Forest bathing has been scientifically proven to reduce stress levels, lower blood pressure and improve concentration and memory. Moderate levels of fitness are required.

Equipment required: Sturdy footwear, warm clothes, a hat, waterproofs, roll mat (for sitting/ laying on) water bittle & snack.
