We invite you to join Maureen LaSalle, of Leaf it Behind, for a 2.5 hour therapeutic forest bathing walk. Maureen is a trained guide with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapists. Through a series of invitations, this leisurely walk will immerse participants in the natural beauty of the woods in springtime. Forest bathing has been shown to lower blood pressure, prevent stress and anxiety, increase cognitive functions and boost immunity - things we can all benefit from during these challenging times. Maureen uses techniques that encourage participants to tune into their senses and be present in the beauty of what is around them.
This guided session will bring participants no further than a ½ mile walking distance. Attendees must be 16 years or older. Pets are not allowed. The “extreme weather” reschedule date will be emailed to students if required. A list of items each student must bring with them will be included in your email receipt. We are limiting each group to 6 participants. Masks are required and proper social distancing will be maintained.
