Join Journeys in Nature & Roxy Yoga for a relaxing morning of yoga inspired mindful movement followed by forest bathing in Newsham Park.
Georgina from Roxy Yoga will begin by taking you through a 35 minute beginner friendly yoga inspired movement session which will help to ground and tune you into the five elements of nature. You will gently prepare the body using traditional pranayama breathing techniques.
You will then be guided on a slow, gentle walk through the park by Claire from Journeys in Nature where you will be offered a series of carefully crafted nature connection activities specifically designed to help support you to be more present and reconnect to the natural world.
Forest bathing is based on the Japanese practice of ‘shinrin-yoku’ and can be adapted to be used in any natural green space. Forest bathing encourages you to slow down, quieten the mind and relax through immersing yourself in nature by connecting to your senses. It does not involve any swimming!
Research shows that spending meaningful time in nature has many benefits including helping to reduce stress and blood pressure & improve sleep quality & concentration.
