Shinrin Yoku (森林浴) or forest bathing has become a vital part of preventative healthcare in Japan. The results of Japanese studies have shown forest bathing improves sleep quality, mood and ability to focus, and reduces stress levels. Chronic stress can contribute to the development of ailments like anxiety, depression, and insomnia, to name a few. It can also contribute to physiological problems, like high blood pressure, muscle tension, and lowered immune response. Spending time in nature, away from modern technology and the hustle and bustle of big cities can improve your physical, mental and even spiritual health by reducing the effects of stress on your body and fostering nature connectedness. Prescribed forest bathing in Japan has led to a healthier lifestyle for people of all ages.

With growing interest in forest therapy and health benefits of forest bathing among researchers and psychologists, The Mindful Tourist aims to promote the practice of forest bathing to nature and health enthusiasts and make the practice of Japanese Shinrin Yoku more easily accessible to a wider range of audiences.

Learn the art and science of Japanese practice of Shinrin Yoku (森林浴) in one of the most beautiful forests in Japan, where it originated in, or in Thailand, and get certified to lead forest bathing groups wherever you are.

This course is also suitable for those who would like to deepen self-awareness and ignite the self-healing power through an enhanced immune system.
