Forest Bathing with Pranayama

An Experience from Vayu-Institut Berlin

Event Description

Forest bathing, or shinrinyoku, is the Japanese practice of a mindful hike through nature. It includes walking, meditation, yogic breathing and relaxation exercises. You linger, breathe, feel and listen in special places and immerse yourself in the forest with all your senses. Forest bathing serves to reduce stress and relax you physically and mentally. It has a lasting positive effect on you, your everyday life and thus also on your fellow human beings.

This expereine will also include the pranayma, a yogic breathing techniqe to fully take in the benefits of the in the clear, pure and healing forest air. Forest bathing is also silence. During our time together in the forest you should not speak - only listen. The intent is to immerse yourself in nature with all your thoughts and senses and gradually come to yourself and find peace.

Under the protection of our small group you will:

• Cross forest areas, clearings and meadows

• Go barefoot whenever you want

• Meditate in the open air

• Breathe consciously in the tenside-rich forest air

• Dip your feet in a crystal clear stream

• Leave the stress of everyday life behind

• Take breathing exercises with you for your everyday life at home

• Start your new week strengthened, clear and relaxed
