Slow down, breathe in and reap the benefits of immersing yourself in nature – without leaving the city.

The Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, or “forest bathing”, has become somewhat of a global phenomenon.

Now widely referred to as forest therapy, the wellness pursuit is about immersing your senses in the natural world and reaping the mental and physical health benefits.

This guided version in the Royal Botanic Gardens runs for two hours, and is designed to reduce stress by slowing your pulse and lifting your mood.

It includes a range of calming processes to complete in the quiet, green surrounds of the gardens.
