Wednesdays, July 7 – August 25
8:30 AM – 10:30 AM
Frist Learning Center Lawn
Explore a unique way to immerse yourself in nature through Shinrin-yoku, the Japanese practice of forest bathing. These slow, gentle walks feature accessible, sensory activities that encourage participants to deepen their connection to the natural world. Studies have shown not only physical health benefits from this sort of time spent in nature but potential mental and emotional benefits as well. A great follow-up to our Intro to Forest Bathing Class (but not required as a prerequisite!), this class provides more space and time to deepen your experience with nature and with other participants. Certified ANFT guide and owner of Forest Therapy Nashville Georgia Bromehead will guide participants through mindful prompts and invitations to “bathe” in the present moment, reducing stress and increasing immune functions. No prior experience is necessary, and all abilities are welcome.
Classes will meet behind the Frist Learning Center, weather permitting. In the event of rain, class will be cancelled, and registrants will receive a wellness class voucher valid for one year. Participants will be emailed at least 12 hours before class if class is cancelled due to rain. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothing for both walking and sitting and bring your own water bottle. Note this is not a hike or nature identification walk. Class size is limited to 10 participants.
Non-members: $18 + General Admission (includes daytime admission to gardens)
