Forest bathing Wellness (open class), Singapore Botanic Gardens

It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in the contemplation of her beauties to know the sense of wonder and humility.
— Rachel Carson

Forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku, is not just a stroll in the park. It is also not hiking. This open forest bathing class will take you slowly and intentionally through nature. Through a series of invitations, you will be facilitated to awaken your senses to deepen your connection with yourself, with nature, and with others.

The fast paced lifestyles that we are accustomed to in Singapore can cause a great deal of stress - physically, mentally and emotionally. Living in such a dynamic environment, most of us never have the luxury to consciously slow down and introspect, and are not aware of the accumulated pressure in our minds and bodies. Science and research studies on forest bathing have quantified health benefits including improved mental clarity, increase body immune functions, increase production of anti-cancer proteins, lower stress levels, lower blood sugar levels and lower blood pressure. Forest bathing also provides a much-needed time out to do-less, mind-less and care-less. By taking care of your self, you can then lead and do better for others in your life.

HOW YOU WILL BENEFIT FROM FOREST BATHING

  • Rest, renew and refresh your heart, mind and body.

  • Learn and experience connections to nature.

  • Enjoy physiological health benefits.
