WHAT IS QIGONG AND FOREST THERAPY?

Qigong is a mind-body practice that incorporates meditation, breathing and movement to enhance energy and enable the body to heal itself. You may practice Qigong anywhere, but being in nature will boost your practice and maximize its health benefits. Forest Therapy (FT) is a relational practice that optimizes the healing properties of being with nature. Additionally, FT brings people more deeply into relationship with the natural world, and ultimately, oneself and others. Both of these practices support healing and every aspect of our wellbeing.
