Forest

Nature Therapy (Shinrin Yoku) - 1 on 1

Outdoors In Nature

Shinrin meaning "forest" and Yoku meaning "bath" in Japanese is a Japanese practice known (scientifically) to reduce stress levels, help us think more clearly, restore vitality and bridge the gap between us and the natural world. 

We will allow nature enter through our ears, eyes, nose, mouth (when possible), hands and feet.

Studies also show that people who spend regular, mindful time, unplugged in forests have lower heart rates, lower cortisol levels (stress hormone), lower blood pressure and higher parasympathetic nerve activity. Overall improving our physical and mental quality of life.

Please keep in mind, like all other therapies, Nature therapy is not a "one session, fix all" approach. Nature therapy also takes time for each person to process and understand BUT I can tell you from personal experience that you can certainly get a glimpse of its life enhancing benefits after the very first session!

This 1 on 1 option is ideal for those who want the freedom to schedule their walks according to their availability.

Forest Path

Intro to Shinrin Yoku - Small Group

Outdoors in Nature - Next Group Session is December 11th @ 11am in Yosemite National Park, CA

Awaken and align with this power hour of Nature Therapy/Shinrin Yoku introductory experience!
We will meet at beautiful Yosemite National Park where we will then drop into our Nature Therapy (Shinrin Yoku) intro session.
I will explain what Shinrin Yoku is, where and when it originated, the benefits of forest bathing and how to do it (and NOT do it). Then, I will guide you through a couple of therapeutic mindfulness practices before setting you free to embark on your own experience of "Forest Bathing" for a set amount of time before bringing us all back together to share what we each encountered within and without while connecting with nature, sharing is optional. a light snack will be provided at this time. I'm vegan, so the snacks will be vegan. 

Each participant will also be given a "Shinrin Yoku in a bottle" essential oil blend as a keepsake, to bring the experience and benefits home with you, long after our time together has ended. Use topically for a soothing self massage, diffuse it in your home, or put on your reflex points.
