FOREST BATHING WALK

A FOREST BATHING WALK IS A SENSORY EXPERIENCE

It's different from any other type of walk in nature that you have ever experienced.

Calm walks of no more than one kilometer, immerse in nature, lasting from 2 to 3 hours.

There will be a series of “guided suggestions” that will support the awakening of your senses and will allow you to establish a nature connection.

THROUGH THIS THERAPEUTIC WALK YOU WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO:

1. AWAKE YOUR SENSES.

2. SLOW DOWN.

3. HAVE A MORE RELAXED, CALM AND CONSCIOUS PERCEPTION OF WHAT SURROUNDS YOU.

4. BE ABLE TO ENJOY PROVEN HEALTH BENEFITS.

Opinion on: Forest Bathing

"The shared forest experience of last Saturday was very gratifying, due to the harmony between the Mata dos Medos forest and the other participants. Thanks for discovering so much that I did not know before and that is now part of my life portfolio. Thanks Alex"

Opinion on: Forest Bathing Workshop

"Being in the forest in so many different ways, being able to take two almost whole days to explore this incredible world was very, very good! Alex's driving was essential to create a welcoming, participative, relaxed atmosphere. I loved it!"
