WHAT IS NATURE & FOREST BATHING?

Contrary to beliefs, nature and forest bathing neither a hike nor a typical nature walk. The science-backed practice comprises of sensory immersions in nature. Through a series of sensory invitations, you will be facilitated to awaken your senses to deepen your connection with yourself, with nature, and with others. A certified nature and forest therapy guide will lead and facilitate you on this immersion. >>> Check out this video <<<

FAQs

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.

What if I have never participated in nature and forest bathing before, can I still join the moon walk edition?

Yes, you can. The gathering will begin with a short introduction to nature and forest bathing.

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.

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.
