About: Yoga and Forest Bathing Retreat Forest bathing is the practice of immersing yourself in, or slowly passing through a woodland. It affects all the senses and as you breathe deeply, the essential oils of the trees are absorbed by your body, having a profound effect on positive feelings, stress hormone levels, parasympathetic nervous activity, sympathetic nervous activity, blood pressure, heart rate and brain activity. On this retreat we amplify the benefits of yoga with some Forest bathing, the two will combine to bring you into a state of harmony with yourself and the universe. The yoga teaching will be focussed around the energy of the season as each one has its own special energy, with its particular lessons to teach us if only we take the time to pause and listen. Chill out, escape your city life and join us in the woods to connect with your best self and natures seasonal wisdom. The perfect break to share with friends and loved ones.
