The Urban Sit Spot – Forest Bathing/Shinrin Yoku

The #UrbanSitSpot is just one tool that busy urban folk can adopt to combat stress and blood pressure, and improve their mental wellbeing as well as their autoimmune system.

Intuitively most of us know the benefits of connecting with nature as we often plan our holiday escapes to settings such as the beach, mountains, forests, parks and rivers. Scientific studies in Finland, USA, Korea and Japan have now proven the health and wellbeing benefits of immersing yourself in nature.

Living in the city, it can sometimes feel impossible to immerse yourself in nature. Come along and find out how to use Urban Green Spaces to practise an #UrbanSitSpot for your wellbeing in between your planned escapes.

Curious? Join us …

Sunday at 11:30 -12:45/1:00 pm OR 1:30-3:00 pm
