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 using native plants. Dress for the weather. This class may be taken multiple times.
