Event description
Under the midnight blue sky, we gather to rest, refresh and renew mind, body and spirit. In quietude, re-membering our natural rhythms.

About this Event

#Moonwalk is a Singapore night edition nature and forest bathing class for women only. In this open/public class, join Youmin - a pioneer and leading Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide in Singapore to explore and connect with night, nature and rest.

Through forest bathing and yoga nidra, you will step easefully into your white space - a space where you can do nothing, a space for you to just be, a space where you can truly rest, renew and refresh.

In forest bathing, you will immerse in nature with your senses; in yoga nidra, you will attune to the sensations in your body. Together, we give our minds a rest, and return to bodyfulness.

*Only for women aged 18 and above.

**Sincerest apologies that we cannot accommodate any latecomers.

*** Important class details such as the exact meeting point etc. will be sent to you via a confirmation email from Eventbrite after registration. Please read and retain that email.

"I will recommend forest bathing for anyone who is looking to decompress from a hectic or stressful lifestyle. The session helped me to appreciate our natural surroundings and witness the significant impact it contributes to our physical well-being. The experience immediately refreshed my mood and made me feel better emotionally at the end of the session." - Katherine B.

FAQs

1. Am I suitable for nature and forest bathing if I have never hiked nor spent much time outdoors?

Nature and forest bathing is designed to be accessible to everyone of varied fitness and outdoor experience. The class is conducted at a slow pace and we typically cover no more than 800 m for the entire session. We typically walk along well-established pavements in the gardens and grass lawns, and is very convenient and safe for everyone. The routes are also mostly level and no significant physical exertion will be required.

2. What if I have never participated in forest bathing and/or yoga nidra before, can I still join the moon walk edition?

Yes, you can! No experience is required.

3. What if it rains?

This is a light rain or shine event. Generally, classes are cancelled only in the event of very heavy downpour or if there is risk of lightning. In such situations, we will personally contact you at least 30 minutes before the meeting time to confirm if the class will proceed or be cancelled. For classes that are cancelled by the host/guide, participants can register for another class without any additional charges. However, there will be no refunds.

4. Are we really walking in a forest?

Forest bathing allows a person to connect with nature. Nature exists outside forests too. City gardens, parks and beaches are some examples where meaningful connections with nature can take place and for you to receive your well-deserved mental and emotional recharge.
