Shinrin-Yoku Sessions

20170413_153228I run Shinrin-Yoku aka ‘Forest Bathing’ sessions in London and the South East throughout the year in a variety of natural settings

Shinrin-Yoku is a term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing” and was developed in Japan during the 1980s. At it’s heart, Shinrin-Yoku is a reflective practice that involves getting out into the natural world and fully connecting

These sessions get you outside of your normal environment, help you to feel less ‘stressed’ and get you mindful of the connection that you can have with the natural world

Shinrin-Yoku sessions can help you calm your anxieties, feel more focussed, gain insights that you may not have had before and generally get a ‘feel good’ boost that comes from being active in nature

This approach really suits people who:

Have an interest in the natural world

Like being outside

Enjoy walking

Feel more centred, mindful and relaxed in an outdoor environment

Above all else these sessions are fun and a great way of spending time outside in nature whilst investing in yourself

How Shinrin-Yoku Sessions Work

Sessions can cover the following areas:

How to use all of your senses in the natural world

Shaking off your stress

Being fully present in your surroundings

Reflective practice

Mindful Walking


The process of booking Shinrin-Yoku sessions starts with us having an initial conversation that lasts around 30 minutes. This conversation, which can be held via phone or Skype is free of charge with absolutely no obligation to commit to anything

I run small group sessions of between 3-10 people which can be adapted to suit your requirements 

Sessions are normally 2 hours with longer sessions being available by arrangement

Shinrin-Yoku sessions are held outside at venues in London and the South East thoughout the year

Before we meet I’ll run you through the risk assessment for the particular venue we’ll be using, check any medical conditions that you might have that need to be taken into account and brief you about what you’ll need to bring along on the day

So if you’d like more information on how Shinrin-Yoku sessions could help you, contact me to get further details

I look forward to working with you
