Reconnect with nature and unwind from the stresses of everyday life at one of our forest bathing half-days. 

Based on the Japanese art of Shinrin-yoku, forest bathing allows you to slow down as you immerse yourself in the forest environment.

Swedish teacher and workshop leader Helena Skoog will show you how to use all your senses to connect with your surroundings, drawing on the power of nature to relieve tension, relax and nourish your sense of wellbeing.

Our woodlands here at Wakehurst are the perfect place to practise the art of forest bathing. Breathe in the fresh air and admire the beautiful trees from all around the world. 

We have a forest bathing workshop in winter, spring, summer and autumn, so you can pick your favourite season to take part.
