Shinrin Yoku is a Japanese expression which means “Immersion in a Forest environment”, translated into French by the expression “Forest bathing”.

Very popular in Japan, it is a slow and contemplative walk, over a short distance of approximately 2 to 3 km in the forest, on easy trails, and facilitated by a trained guide.

The walk is punctuated by invitations to connect to nature and to ourselves, through our senses. Enjoy the sounds, smells and sensations of nature that will bring you a sense of accomplishment, giving way to deep serenity.

A tea ceremony and snack complete the walk.

2 sessions will be held : March 16 and May 25, 2024 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Improved mood
  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Reduction of blood pressure
