“Being in the forest can restore our mood.

Give us back our energy and vitality.

Refresh and rejuvenate us.

We know this deep in our bones.”

Wellness Saturdays: Weekly Opportunity

Join us on Saturday mornings from 9-10:15AM for our signature weekly class in the forests near Grand Rapids, Michigan!

Wellness Saturday classes include slow yoga, a guided nature immersion through your five senses (also known as a “forest bathing invitation”) and a brief guided meditation. This is not an exercise class or a traditional guided hike. Consider Wellness Saturdays as an opportunity to slow down and connect with yourself and the natural world.

Registration is limited to 18 participants per class and pre-registration is required.

Forest Therapy Walks: Monthly Opportunity

During this monthly opportunity, you will be gently guided in a 2.5-hour forest therapy walk that is intentionally structured to help you relax, reconnect to nature and tune into the deeper benefits of extended time in a wooded environment.

What is “forest therapy”? It is the practice of spending time in forested areas to enhance our health, wellness, and happiness. It is a simple but powerful practice, rooted in the knowledge that as humans we hold an innate connection to nature. By taking time to nourish a deeper relationship with the natural world, we can reignite our curiosity, our sense of wonder and belonging, and offer our physical body a multitude of health benefits.

Walks are held on the third Sunday of each month, 3:00-5:30pm.

Registration is limited to 12 participants per walk, pre-registration is required.

Forest Therapy Walk: $20
