Rain or shine in our own private woodland with ancient native trees.
Try some Forest Bathing, there is a lot more to it than you may think and it’s a wonderful way to reconnect with nature and refresh your spirit.

Time to fully relax and let go now, this practice is all about releasing tension, creating comfort and space in the body. Long held supportive poses practiced on the floor using pillows and blankets, utter bliss!
