Forest Therapy (Shinrin-yoku)

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

8 Sep 2019 to 23 Feb 2020

Originating from Japan, shinrin-yoku, or forest therapy, is a preventative health practice that immerses your senses in nature. This guided Forest Therapy experience will bolster your mental and physical health by reducing stress levels, lowering pulse and blood pressure and lifting you into a more positive mood.

Recognised as a public health practice in Asia and Europe, forest therapy is gaining global acclaim as an evidence-based, cost-effective and natural remedy – a ‘green prescription’ for a healthier you. Forest Therapy sessions run for two hours, with special three-hour sessions running every third Sunday.

Presented by Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, In My Nature and the International Nature and Forest Therapy Alliance (INFTA). For exclusive group experiences, please call.
