ParkRx: Forest Therapy Walk
9:30 AM
Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
ParkRx: Forest Therapy Walk Description:
The practice of Forest Therapy has been shown to improve health and well-being.
Have you heard about Shinrin-yoku or Forest bathing? Here is an opportunity to take a walk and experience the practice for yourself. Learn techniques to maximize the health benefits and stress reducing qualities of this walking practice. Shinrin-yoku originated in Japan and is gaining popularity in the United States for its documented health benefits.

This practice takes a walk in the woods to another level. A centering and calming restorative practice, it promotes balance and restored vitality through a quality of presence and heightened sensory awareness. Recent articles have been written up in Oprah, Time Magazine, and National Geographic, as well as numerous other publications. Sugarloaf Ridge State Park hosts a Forest Therapy Series as part of its ParkRx Program the 4th Saturday of each month. These walks are led by certified Association of Nature and Forest Therapy (ANFT) practitioners. Visit natureandforesttherapy.earth for more info about this practice.

Tickets are $20 or free with a July 2022 or newer ParkRx from a Sonoma County Medical Provider (visit https://sugarloafpark.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/ParksRx_info.pdf for ParkRx info).

We are offering a morning (9:30am-12:30pm) and afternoon (2-5pm) session for every date. Tickets are valid only for the date and time purchased.
