Join Off The Grid yoga instructor Lauren Theis for a forest bathing experience; an easy hike and gentle yoga session, suitable for both beginners and experienced practitioners. The hike will include a meditation and centering session to kick things off - we will then enjoy a beautiful hike through the landscapes of the Wickecheoke Creek Preserve, enjoying the detoxifying quality of being present in nature. Yogis should bring their own mat (or a blanket/towel if you don't have one) along with water and suitable shoes for walking.

What is forest Bathing?

"In an effort to combat our indoor epidemic and reap these health benefits, a growing number of Americans have become followers of a Japanese practice called Shinrin-yoku. Coined by the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in 1982, the word literally translates to 'taking in the forest atmosphere' or 'forest bathing' and refers to the process of soaking up the sights, smells and sounds of a natural setting to promote physiological and psychological health."
