Forest Bathing - Katie Robinson

Our Harmony in Nature sessions deliver therapeutic benefits of guided mindfulness practices with fellow nature lovers. 
You leave soothed, and with ideas for continuing the benefits.

The Forest Bathing Institute (TFBI) has pioneered the addition of sensory and meditative practices with research to create Forest Bathing+,
promoting mindfulness and reconnecting us to nature. Evidence suggests that Forest Bathing can:

  • lower blood pressure,
  • decrease stress,
  • improve cardiovascular and metabolic health,
  • reduce blood sugar levels,
  • enhance concentration and memory,
  • lift depression, reduce anxiety and rumination
  • enable better pain management,
  • increase energy,
  • boost the immune system by increasing the body’s natural killer (NK) cell count,
  • increase anti-cancer protein production,
  • facilitate weight loss.

How does it differ from a dog walk or stroll in the woods?

About Katie

Katie spent many childhood holidays outdoors, walking, youth hostelling and camping, particularly in the Lake District and Yorkshire Moors, so enjoys forest bathing all year round.

She’s been on two survival courses and loves foraging, especially for teas. Katie’s been self-employed for much of her working life, which includes teaching, editing, and dance instructing. 
As well as running sessions through Harmony in Nature, she’s a key instructor in training and assessing forest bathing guides for TFBI.
She helped pioneer forest bathing for the RSPB and National Trust in 2019.

Using natural healthcare for herself and her family enables them to be mainly independent of the mainstream, and she advocates doing research for your own needs.
The key components of her approach to health are nutrition, essential oils, homeopathy and walking in nature, with visits to other practitioners as necessary.
Katie co-founded Harmony in Nature with Joanna Bristow-Watkins.
