Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this nature tours class:

Inspired by Shinrin yoku, Japanese forest bathing refers to the practice of immersing all of your senses in the healing forest to reduce stress hormones and increase immune function. Connect with forest life around you through mindful activities on a gentle walk, typically covering less than a mile, and ending with a simple tea ceremony utilizing native plants. 

Dress for the weather, as class will still be held in light to moderate rain.

    Reviewed by Michelle M. on 9/11/2023
    This was my first experience but I have done a lot of research on forest bathing. Sally did a great job! She is so kind and generous and even stayed a little after to talk to me about how I am trying to set up a business of my own around forest bathing. My only suggestion is that the gardens provide a detailed explanation on where to find the group. I was 15 minuets late because I am not the greatest map reader and had to figure out where to go once I parked. Maybe drawing on the map or suggesting a specific parking lot would help. It was a beautiful day and I am SO glad I attended!

Review Summary by CourseHorse

Students who attended the Forest Bathing Experience class had positive things to say about their experience. They praised the instructor, Sally, for her kindness and generosity, mentioning that she even took the time to talk to one student about their own business plans related to forest bathing. However, one student suggested that the gardens should provide better directions on where to find the group, as they arrived 15 minutes late due to difficulties finding the location. Despite this minor issue, all students expressed their gratitude for attending the class on a beautiful day. Direct quote: "Sally did a great job! She is so kind and generous and even stayed a little after to talk to me about how I am trying to set up a business of my own around forest bathing."
