Class Details

Hit the “refresh” button with a yoga class among the trees & dedicated time to step off of your mat and explore the stress-relieving practice of guided forest bathing. Led by RYT and Certified Forest Therapy Guide, Katie Venechuk, this unique class is designed with a focus on self-care, enjoying the peace of nature, and connecting to the slower pace of the natural world.

Classes include:

  • A short, guided nature walk to our class spot in the forest
  • A 50-55 minute yoga class among the trees (basic vinyasa), with a focus on safe alignment and honoring our body for a lifelong yoga practice
  • 10-15 minutes of guided forest bathing, including unique weekly experiences and time to explore off of your mat and in the forest
  • A brief community circle to close our experience together and transition into the rest of the day inspired, refreshed and connected

No experience in the outdoors is necessary to join.  Yoga class is designed for all levels!

What is guided forest bathing?

During a guided forest bathing experience, you’ll be invited to explore different aspects of the natural environment through your senses of sight, hearing, smell, touch and sometimes even taste. 

Forest bathing is scientifically proven to reduce stress hormones, and has also been shown to reduce blood pressure and attention fatigue, improve sleep, and more. No swim suit needed!
