Winter Forest Bathing Classes

step outside & embrace the beauty of winter

β€œIt is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it.”

– John Burroughs, early 1900’s naturalist

Class Details:

Cold temperatures & shorter daylit hours can tempt us to stay inside, but going outside in the winter can offer us incredible mental health benefits and the opportunity to develop a deeper appreciation of the season.

Our wellness thrives when we can find joy in the present moment, and it’s hard to do that when we are wishing away our days until the spring.

Join us for Winter Forest Bathing classes and expand your relationship with the cold weather months!

Winter Forest Bathing classes are 1-hour and include:

  • A grounding guided nature meditation
  • A short breathwork practice in the crisp forest air
  • A guided forest bathing invitation to help you relax into the environment & explore the beauty of the winter world
  • A closing circle, where we’ll share a few words & enjoy time together as a community
  • Class includes cold weather comforts (see below)
