Shinrin Yoku (outdoor classroom)

Shinrin Yoku, also known as "forest bathing," is a traditional Japanese practice of immersing oneself in nature as a form of preventative care and healing. Studies show that exposure to nature promotes physiological relaxation and boosts immune functions. Join us in Whatcom Falls Park for walking meditations, Qi Gong, and yoga exercises outdoors, mindfully using our senses to reduce anxiety and calm the mind. Instructor Cindy Hsu-Becker practices Qi-Gong and is a yoga instructor. Wear comfortable shoes; bring water and a towel/blanket to sit on.
