Originally from Japan, shinrin-yoku (forest bathing)  has been recognized as a preventive medicine since 1982. More than just a walk in the forest, it is about practicing a deep relaxation session, as well as exposing yourself to the molecules emitted by plants. It is known that this practice strengthens the immune system, reduces blood pressure and improves concentration and cardiovascular health.

We will approach the teachings of Dr. Quing Li on the practice of shinrin-yoku and enjoy its benefits on health and well-being. 

Experience Forest bathing benefits …

We will meet in the heart of the Genal Valley and follow a path through the forest. On our visit we will walk among cork oaks, hawk oaks and chestnut trees and enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.

Comfortable clothes adapted to the weather are recommended. Good shoes for walking on dirt roads and paths. Whoever sees it necessary can bring a mat or cushion to sit on the forest floor.

We offer a mindfulness session with taichi-chuan and chi-kung exercises taught by a qualified instructor.

Give yourself a time to pause, a meeting with yourself and a meditative rest in the most beautiful of the Andalusian valleys.

The environment of the Vallée du Génal is a true “Forest of forests” because it is characterized by a remarkable forest diversity. On our visit we will walk among cork oaks, hawk oaks and chestnut trees and enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.

We will meet in the heart of the Genal Valley and follow a path through the forest that lead us to small and pleasant areas where to practice relaxation and chi-kung sessions. The way itself will help us to perform the forest bathing.
