Online Forest Bathing Walk
Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique virtual forest bathing opportunity. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. The practice encourages you to walk in the forest (or the space available to you) at a slower pace and take in the atmosphere around you. Multiple scientific studies have shown that it lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These walks are slow-paced and can take place in any space. All participants will be joining the call from their individual space (whether in nature or home) where they can practice safe social distancing.
