Embody Nature

Forest Bathing in Belair National Park

Forest Bathing Embody Nature

A nature-based wellness experience in one of the oldest National Parks in the world.

Forest bathing, or being in the presence of trees, is a Japanese practice known as ‘shinrin-yoku’ that has been proven to boost the immune system, decrease stress, and lower blood pressure.

It helps you to connect with nature and boost your wellbeing.

For many of us today, life is about juggling priorities, work, family, and running households.  Modern life sees us spending more time indoors and less time outside. This daily treadmill can lead to mental fatigue, poor sleep and a lowered immune system. We know innately that being in nature makes us feel better but when was the last time that you lingered in nature unhurried? The practice of forest bathing, also called forest therapy, involves no actual bathing.

In Japan, the practice is decades old and the name ‘shinrin-yoku’ translates to “taking in the forest.” Many healthcare researchers and practitioners say that being in nature can have regenerative powers, improving mood and easing anxiety, stress, and depression. Nature is the perfect tonic!

Led by a certified guide, you will be taken through a series of directed invitations that will help you relax, slow down, become present, and connect with nature. Nature therapy helps our brains to rest and allows us to unplug and recharge. Spending as little as 10 minutes a day connecting with nature mindfully can improve our feelings of well-being and boost creativity.

A forest bathing experience can be likened to the feeling of having a massage.  You feel that same sense of bliss, embodiment, and wellbeing.
