WHAT IS FOREST BATHING?
We've all experienced the benefits of being in nature. Sounds of Nature in the forest, the presence of trees, rays of sunshine passing through leaves, fresh non-poluted air. All these elements contribute to our well being.
They lower our stress levels and worries, support a deeply relaxed state of mind and guide us towards clearer ideas. The direct benefits of a FOREST BATHING session include a stronger immune system, increased energy levels, reduced anxiety, depression and anger, lowered stress levels and promote an enhanced quality in our sleep.
Studies also show that a session can significantly prevent symptoms and diseases linked to chronic stress such as:
- Low immune system
- Back, neck and shoulder pain
- Autonomous nervous system disorders
- Weight disorders
- Sleep disorders
- Depressions and burnouts
- Stomach pain and digestive disorders
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Cancer risks
Karen is a passionate forest coach, a single mother of 2, and a graduate educator since the year 2003 with a passion for Eastern philosophy.
Also, she studied Chinese medicine, and besides from beeing a long time practitioner of tai chi, qi gong, eurythmy, and meditation, she is a certified “face yoga” teacher.
In 2016, she experienced an intense burnout, that she had to overcome by doing a lot of her own research to physically get back on her feet.
During these difficult times she decided to go back to her roots, as she is a “Waldorf” child. WALDORF SCHOOL is an international private school that promotes the Rudolf STEINER german philosophy, which consists in an education closer to nature.
As a consequence, Karen spent most of her time outdoors, in the woods, where she felt serene and protected.
One day she realized that FOREST BATHING is actually the ideal way for her to help others create meaningful changes in their lives and to show them the benefits of a forest.
