Forest Bathing & Yoga

“The Forest is the Therapist. The Guide Opens the Doors.”
– M. Amos Clifford, Founder of the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs

Forest Therapy is a research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments. Forest Therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of shinrin yoku, which translates to “forest bathing.” Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and for stabilizing and improving mood and cognition”. 

Research makes a strong case for taking your practice into the wild as the weather warms—or at least your backyard.-YELENA MOROZ ALPERT; APR 10, 2015

“One of yoga’s (many) beauties is it can literally be done anywhere. And it turns out nature enhances your practice in an entirely different way than a studio does. A recent Swedish study found viewing nature increased wakeful relaxation and internal focus—two pretty important components of a rewarding yoga practice.”

Sooooo come join Tracey:  Sept 16th for Forest Bathing with yoga and experience the benefits of yoga AND Forest Bathing as we explore nature right outside the Yoga Garden studio.

We will begin in the studio and venture outside for a few invitations to nature’s liminal space before ending back in the studio. Nothing out of the ordinary needs to be brought.

Tracey is a certified Forest Bathing/therapy guide in training with the ANFT.

Being in nature makes us feel good, this is not new information. Hopefully most of us can at least conjure up an experience of being in the woods and how the sounds of the wind, the scent of the trees, the sunlight playing through the leaves, the fresh, clean air; offered a sense of comfort.  Simply being outside can restore our mood, give us back our energy and vitality, refresh and rejuvenate us.  Research is now explaining how nature eases our stress and worries, helps us relax and think more clearly. This is not exercise, or hiking, or jogging. It is simply being in nature, connecting with it through our senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. Shinrin-yoku is like a bridge. By opening our senses, it bridges the gap between the natural world and us.

Join Tracey for a nurturing stroll woods. This is a sweet opportunity to get lost in the natural wildness of your being while communing deeply with the mineral, plant and animal kingdoms that surround you. The stroll includes the opportunity to sit in meditation in the forest at designated spots.

Come on out to recharge your entire Being and tap into the healing powers that the forest so generously provides. To learn more about forest bathing click here.

*In addition to scheduled Forest bathing walks, private walks are available upon requests for families and groups.
