  • promote lower concentrations of cortisol (stress hormone,)
  • lower pulse rate,
  • lower blood pressure,
  • boost the immune system,
  • lower sympathetic nerve activity (decreased stress)
  • greater parasympathetic nerve activity (increased relaxation.)

Join us for a gentle walk and meditation in nature and experience the health benefits of shinrin-yokuOn this leisurely walk you will be encouraged to use all of your senses as you allow the beautiful setting in nature to lower your stress levels, boost your immune system and improve your overall health. No experience with meditation necessary.

Simple breathing relaxation and meditation exercises will be taught.
