FOREST BATHING WALK

A FOREST BATHING WALK IS A SENSORY EXPERIENCE

It's different from any other type of walk in nature that you have ever experienced.

Calm walks of no more than one kilometer, immerse in nature, lasting from 2 to 3 hours.

There will be a series of “guided suggestions” that will support the awakening of your senses and will allow you to establish a nature connection.

THROUGH THIS THERAPEUTIC WALK YOU WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO:

1. AWAKE YOUR SENSES.

2. SLOW DOWN.

3. HAVE A MORE RELAXED, CALM AND CONSCIOUS PERCEPTION OF WHAT SURROUNDS YOU.

4. BE ABLE TO ENJOY PROVEN HEALTH BENEFITS.

Opinion on: Forest Bathing

"Great experience! Alex is a very good guide; very professional, knowledgable and sensitive. It was my first forest bath and Alex made us feel very comfortable. The "walk" was well organised and explained, and our group connected very well with the forest as well as each other. Thank you for a wonderful experience, I will definitely sign up for another one soon!"

Opinion on: Forest Bathing Workshop

"Increíble experiencia! Si disfrutar de un baño de bosque con Alex no es suficiente para conectar con la naturaleza y todos tus sentidos, tener la suerte de aprender las técnicas para mejorar la experiencia a través de un workshop de todo un fin de semana es ya brutal. Un verdadero placer que pienso repetir en breve."
