Forest Bathing retreat at Nøsen Yoga og Fjellhotell 5-7 October 2018

Description Retreat

The Forest Bathing Retreat is our invitation to you to re-connect with your true self, nature and other human or non-human beings through guided immersion in the beautiful nature at the Norwegian Nøsen Yoga Retreat, a high-mountain lodge, surrounded by pristine lakes, meadows, waterfalls and forests. The program of the retreat is designed to help you opening your senses, getting naturally mindful, calm, connected, refreshed and renewed. Trained by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, the guides are trained to enhance sensory perception, facilitating connection with place, body, nature and the more-than-human world. They can help you to slow down, turn off the stream of habitual thinking and establish embodied contact with the present moment. They work in partnership with Nature and also have a function of a supportive witness, enabling participants to experience whatever the natural environment has to offer to them at the moment. The retreat is a real treat for anyone looking for more connection, focus, creativity and relaxation, boosting their immune system and improving their physical, mental and spiritual health at the same time.
