What you'll do

What is it that feeds your soul? For me, spending time playing in nature, let me take you to the perfect place to reflect on your communication with your body, mind and spirit and help you open up to wholeness and grace. In the stillness of now familiar paths of ancient giants, I lead groups to intimately connect with their bodies.

My intimate knowledge of this forest, allows me to guide participants to feel more peaceful and connected, more grounded and settled. Immersed in a practice of presence will led to a magical unfolding hidden in plain sight. I will help you notice the abundance of energy and life in the forest and how this practice can lead to peace and healing of the body.i

We will meet up at the trail-head of Bert Flinn Park(David Ave and Heritage Mountain Blvd) and then engage in 2 hrs of Forest Bathing , come rejuvenate and breathe in the fresh forest air. Peace and tranquility will take over your senses as your breath deepens and senses awake to the nature around you.
Forest bathing is an ancient practice with scientifically proven health benefits, most notably it decreases the risk of heart attack, reduces blood pressure , stress and pulse rate and many other health benefits. **Please note I have reduced group size to accommodate social distancing.
Other things to note
This is a relatively easy hike, we have many trail options so please contact me if you any questions about mobility so I can adjust my route.
