Forest Therapy


with Maureen LaSalle

Calendar Next available session starts Jun 12, 2021 at 10 am

Forest Therapy is an immersive experience in nature.

Join us for a 2 to 3 hour forest therapy walk led by Maureen LaSalle of Leaf It Behind. Maureen is a trained guide with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapists. She will lead you through a series of invitations on a leisurely walk that will immerse participants in the natural beauty of the woods in spring.

Forest therapy has been shown to lower blood pressure, prevent stress and anxiety, increase cognitive functions and boost immunity- things we can all benefit from during these challenging times. Maureen will use techniques that encourages participants to tune into their senses and be present in the beauty of what is around you. This guided session will bring participants no further than a 3/4 mile walking distance. Attendees must be 16 years or older.  Pets are not allowed.  A list of items each student must bring with them will be included in your email receipt.

Masks are required and proper social distancing will be maintained.
