Our Purpose

Welcome! We are glad you’re here!

At In Your Element (IYE) we believe that time in nature is a core component of a healthy and joyful life.

Our nature-centered wellness programs are led by qualified guides and designed to help you experience your time outdoors in a new way- reducing stress, reigniting a sense of awe for the land that you call home, and curating a sense of community with others in a simple, tech-free way.

We offer our programs through two approaches:

  • Forest therapy experiences & wellness through data-driven stress relief approaches, yoga in the forest, nature meditations and special workshops. Learn more about our wellness programs here.
  • Foraging classes & wellness through connection to highly nutritious foods from our local landscapes. Learn about our approach to foraging and wild foods here.

While we believe in the power of education, enjoying and appreciating the gifts of nature are at the core of all of our programs.

Join us to empower yourself to forage for food, explore the world of forest therapy with one of Michigan’s first certified forest therapy guides, meet like-minded people, claim time for technology detox, time alone in beautiful places while someone else keeps track of the clock for you, and so much more.

We are excited to teach you about all the wonderful benefits we receive by setting aside the phone and heading outside.

We’ll see you in the forest soon!

– Katie, Founder of In Your Element
