Time: 11:00 AMto 2:00 PM

Nature and Forest Therapy is a research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments. In Japan it is called "shinrin yoku," which translates to "forest bathing." Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and for stabilizing and improving mood and cognition.   Sandra Bosteder has master’s degrees in Physical Education Athletic Administration and Health Education. She is a Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides. Her interest in Forest Therapy was piqued while researching healthy lifestyles that went beyond and deeper than what many health programs provide and benefited more diverse physical ability levels. Nature and Forest Therapy happens in all types of weather and in most temperatures. If folks show up, nature shows up to teach and to heal.
