Course overview

Join Maxine in the beautiful surrounding of Vallis Vale and feel the benefits of walking in nature and practicing mindfulness. We will be walking through the woods and practising mindfulness and being connected to nature. This is an amazing way to keep active with a qualified Nordic Walking tutor to guide and support you. Suitable for total beginners.

Forest Bathing is connecting with nature through mindfulness exercises. Shinrin Yoku emerged in Japan in the 1980s as a response to mass urbanization, disconnection from the land and the results of unhealthy lifestyles in large, overcrowded cities. Many cultures have recognized the importance of the natural world to human health. Enjoy some time in the natural world and consciously connect with what’s around you.
