Community Classes

“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.”

Community Classes

Yoga & Forest Bathing Class:

Take time for self-care & reconnect to nature during our signature Yoga & Guided Forest Bathing classes! During these 1.25-hr classes, you’ll enjoy a slow, meditative walk to our yoga spot among the trees, an all-levels, alignment focused yoga class, and dedicated time to step off of your mat for the stress-relieving practice of guided forest bathing. This class is designed to help you care for your living body, enjoy the peace of nature, and connect to the slower pace of the natural world. Classes end with an opportunity to share time together in a community circle.

Single Class: $15

Classes hosted in various forests around Grand Rapids, Michigan.


Foraging & Wild Tending Class:

(Formerly known as Science Sundays class)

Are you interested in learning more about foraging, plant identification, and the incredible foods and medicines on the landscape around you? This class is for you! During Foraging & Wild Tending Classes, you’ll learn about the plants and mushrooms we encounter as we walk the forest trails together. Each class includes a “featured” plant or mushroom, which our guides will discuss in depth to help you truly begin to understand how to identify and develop a relationship to it on your own. This class is taught from the perspective of “wild tending,” which acknowledges our relationship to nature from a place of respect, ethical foraging, reciprocity and gratitude. Classes hosted year-round.

Single Class: $15

All classes hosted at Cascade Peace Park in Ada, Michigan.


Seasonal Forest Bathing Classes:

Embrace the gifts of living in a four-season climate with a consistent forest bathing practice throughout the seasons! Take time to notice what is happening in the world around you as nature moves through her dance from spring to summer, fall to winter. Seasonal forest bathing classes include a guided nature meditation, a brief breathwork practice in the fresh air, a season-specific forest bathing invitation, and a closing community circle among the trees. Relax, refresh, and reconnect to the magic of nature during these monthly 1-hr classes, hosted year-round.
