Forest Bathing near St Julien Hotel & Spa
Forest bathing is based on the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, which is rooted in the concept of taking in the forest atmosphere by slowing down and connecting with the nature. A short, quiet walk in the woods, focused on meditation and introspection instead of trying to climb the tallest peak or achieve a record workout, allows you to make a deeper connection with the world around you as well as your own thoughts and emotions.
Forest bathing places an emphasis on soaking up your natural surroundings:
- The sights of the squirrels scampering across the trail, the height of the towering trees and the way the sunlight touches the world around you.
- The sounds of the leaves rustling in the wind, the birds calling to one another and the crunch of branches beneath your feet.
- And, the smells of the fallen pine needles, the oils in the tree bark and the musty earth below.
