Join Lindsey of Dorset Forest Bathing on a guided walk around Kingcombe National Nature Reserve, where you will be coached in the art of Shinrin-Yoku. Lindsey has a background in conservation and uses basic scientific terms to help you understand how to get the most from your time outdoors in nature.

Kingcombe National Nature Reserve is brimming with wildlife at this time of year, set as it is within some of the most un-spoilt countryside in the country. There is a café open Wednesday – Sunday 10 am – 4 pm or you are welcome to bring your own picnic to enjoy within the reserve either before or after your session.

Forest Bathing originated in Japan when scientists found that time spent in forests, slowing down and tuning into senses was both beneficial to physical health as well as improving emotional wellbeing. They call it Shinrin-Yoku.

Proven health benefits of Shinrin-Yoku include;

  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Lowered stress
  • Concentration and memory improve
  • Increase in anti-cancer protein production
  • Lowered blood sugar levels
  • Boosted energy
  • Improving feelings of depression
  • Increased pain threshold

You are welcome to stay and enjoy refreshments at the on-site café after the session.
