Do I need to bring a bathing suit?

No. There is no actual bathing in the practice of Shinrin Yoku/Forest Bathing. We are immersing ourselves in the healing qualities of nature. However, you are welcome to splash around in the creek if you feel called to do so!

A Rejuvenating Forest Therapy Experience

I had the pleasure of joining Kelly for my first Forest Therapy walk in Pisgah National Forest and it was EXACTLY what I needed! I was feeling extra stressed and taking this guided walk and immersive journey in the woods melted the stress away. You don't realize the sounds, animals, and nature you miss unless you seek to you take the time to stay with it a while and really experience it. Regardless of experience level, Kelly makes you feel invited as you are. This walk was a transformative experience for me and left me feeling refreshed and grounded. If you're thinking "I don't need a guide to take a walk in the woods", take a walk with Kelly and you'll change your mind!
