I will lead you to a relaxing experience in nature to truly find your connection with forest. During this forest bathing experience you learn how to use nature to increase your health and wellbeing. This activity is in Uutela trail which is the largest and most naturally diversified recreational area in East Helsinki. We will meet at Helsinki Central Railway station and take a metro together to Vuosaari (20 min). From Vuosaari metro station we will walk to Uutela trail. On the way to a forest (approx. 20 minutes by foot) you will also see Aurinkolahti beach, a long sandy beach surrounded by a beautiful seaview. In Uutela trail we are walking in a forest and you will experience rugged rock formations, coastal scenes bordered by flood meadows and alder trees & forest. The focus on our tour is to engage all our senses with nature. Touch, smell, feel and taste a pure nature and forest. I will tell you some facts how nature can positively impact your overall health and wellbeing. I also teach you simple but effective meditation, mindfulness and forest yoga practises.
