Class will take place outside on NYBG grounds and follow current safety procedures. Registered students will be sent information regarding meeting location and log-in information.
When surrounded by the tranquil beauty of trees, the mind naturally becomes quiet and peaceful. You will learn about forest therapy and see for yourself the research-proven health benefits of forest bathing. Learn basic sensory and meditation techniques to help you slow down and awaken your senses. Drawing from the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, Scandinavian nature philosophies, and other mindful practices, you'll engage in mindful walking through NYBG's Thain Family Forest.
