What is Forest Bathing/ Shinrin Yoku

Originating in Japan, Shinrin Yoku translates to "forest bathing" or "taking in the forest atmosphere."  As we move mindfully through the forest and engage all of our senses we are literally "bathing" in and breathing in the healing benefits of the forest. Forest Bathing has been linked with numerous health benefits including reduced stress, anxiety, and depression, improved cardiovascular health, attention restoration, increased immunity, boosted creativity, and improved respiratory health. Additionally, forest bathing offers opportunities to connect or reconnect with yourself, others on the walk, and nature

Why should I go with a guide?
