Take a ‘Forest Bathing’ hike at Sugarloaf


Sugarloaf State Park

Saturday August 2017 - 9:30am to

Have you heard about Shinrin Yoku or “Forest bathing?” Learn all about it on Aug. 26, 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park.

Forest bathing therapy is a practice that originated in Japan and is gaining popularity in the United States. It’s an immersion in the beneficial influences of nature. Learn techniques to maximize the health benefits and stress reducing qualities of this walking practice, led by certified ANFT (Association of Nature and Forest Therapy) practitioners.

This practice takes “a walk in the woods” to another level – a very centering and calming restorative practice, promoting balance and restored vitality through a quality of presence and heightened sensory awareness.

Sugarloaf State Park is hosting a Forest Therapy Series as part of its Parks RX program. Hikes are held on the last Saturday of each month, now through November. Cost is $20.

Buy tickets at www.brownpapertickets.com, search “Sugarloaf.”
