Forest Bathing + Nature Therapy Walk at Innsbrook Resort
Join Jess Thenhaus, Certified Forest and Nature Therapy Guide with Urban Forest Therapy, for an hour-long introduction to Forest Bathing and Nature Therapy at Charrette Creek Commons.
Forest Bathing is a practice that supports health and wellness through guided immersion in forests and other environments to promote the well-being of both people and the land. Unplug and unwind as you connect with nature and the ‘more than human world’ in this immersive sensory experience. Experience the healing and wellness- promoting effects of Shinrin-Yoku (forest bathing), the practice of bathing in the senses in the atmosphere of the forest.
This is not a strenuous hike in the woods, but rather a gentle, leisurely walk designed to allow time and stress to melt away as you sink comfortably into the peace of presence that nature can provide.
In a safe and welcoming environment, you’ll be guided through a series of invitations that will allow you to tune into your surroundings and explore nature through your senses.
We will have opportunities to share our experiences with each other, and Jess will share some practices at the end for you to try on your own at home by yourself or with friends.
There is no lack of scientific data that proves that intentional time in nature can improve both physical and mental health & well-being. Many people find that they experience; a sense of deep relaxation, renewed connection with themselves, slower and deeper breathing, slowing of heart rate, and heightened feelings of creativity, focus, and awareness. Each walk provides a totally unique experience for everyone.

Sarah Brauer - Yoga Instructor
High school science teacher by day, bootcamp coach and yoga instructor by night! Sarah completed her yoga teacher training in 2020, and has since been sharing her love for yoga with her Fast Fitness Bootcamp family and friends. When she is not teaching or coaching, you can find her on a hiking trail with her 11 year old rescue lab Merlin, snuggled up with her two kitties Gwennie and MoMo while reading or listening to podcasts, adventure traveling (the mountains are always calling), discovering yoga retreats, enjoying plant-based dishes and restaurants, indulging in wine tastings, or dancing like nobody's watching at a music concert.
I'm very excited to be a part of this retreat, and I hope to guide you toward presence and stillness through mindful movement.
