“Forest bathing is deceptively simple. The experience and effects are transformative. Missie is an excellent guide- knowledgeable, welcoming, kind.” Meg, Forest Bath Shevlin Park
I am passionate about guiding others in deepening their connections with our earth and tapping into the unique healing that connecting with nature offers - Missie Wikler, Owner, Certified Forest Therapy Guide, and RYT 200 Yoga Instructor
A little bit about me.... I have always been innately drawn to our natural world. I worked as a field biologist for many years and turned to education, feeling that I could have more opportunities to impact our world in a positive way. It was in education that I developed a passion for connecting others to the land, our earth, our home. I hosted field trips and planned weekend events that fostered nature connection through wellness practice. Blending yoga, breath work, and forest bathing practices I could first hand see the healing powers of nature. I am honored to have opportunities to share these practices with our community!
FOREST BATHING EXPLAINED
Forest bathing is a practice where participants bath themselves in the forest atmosphere. There is no water involved in this practice and the bathing refers to immersing oneself in the phytoncides, a group of chemicals which plants use to communicate with each other. Scientists are finding that our bodies respond to these chemical signals in ways which are beneficial for us. Practicing forest bathing has been shown to increase immune response, and decrease stress hormones in the body. For more information go to our Forest Bathing page!
