Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs
Enhance your employee wellness program with Guided Forest Therapy.
Guided Forest Therapy is a fast-growing wellness activity that is convenient and highly recommended.
Our guide, Lance, was great! The hike was very relaxing, and I recommend everyone try it. Lance led us on a short hike while inviting us to reflect with nature. A great way to relax on a Saturday morning.
What is Guided Forest Therapy?
The application of Japanese Shinrin Yoku aspects combined with traditional practices to create a unique experience in nature.
Our certified Forest Therapy Guides use the approach that the forest is the therapist. As guides they seek to open the door to invite you into the process.
Guided Forest Therapy sessions are available in monthly 2-hour blocks. Your team members can take these sessions and you can also choose to schedule groups for team building workshops and retreats.
Awesome experience to slow down and take a break from life. The guide was very accommodating and welcoming to the whole experience. You will not regret taking a couple hours off with Lance because you will be immersed in nature with serenity and newfound strength.
Available venues include the Walnut Creek Community Regional Park, The Los Angeles Arboretum, and Monrovia Canyon Park. For additional locations or if you have a location you would like to schedule a walk in please contact 626 263-1983.
2-hour sessions can be scheduled monthly by appointment for up to 12 people. To inquire about scheduling team building workshops or retreats, email firstname.lastname@example.org
