     Sponsored by: New Jersey Conservation Foundation

This hike meets at the Prallsville Mills at noon!

Join Off The Grid yoga instructor Lauren Theis for a forest bathing experience from noon until 2pm; an easy hike and gentle yoga session, suitable for both beginners and experienced practitioners. The hike will include a meditation and centering session to kick things off - we will then enjoy a beautiful hike through the landscapes of the Wickecheoke Creek Preserve, enjoying the detoxifying quality of being present in nature. Yogis should bring their own mat (or a blanket/towel if you don't have one) along with water and suitable shoes for walking.

What is forest Bathing?

"In an effort to combat our indoor epidemic and reap these health benefits, a growing number of Americans have become followers of a Japanese practice called Shinrin-yoku. Coined by the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in 1982, the word literally translates to 'taking in the forest atmosphere' or 'forest bathing' and refers to the process of soaking up the sights, smells and sounds of a natural setting to promote physiological and psychological health."

Songbirds are on their way south for the winter, and September is a wonderful time to see the most colorful warblers as they pass through New Jersey. American Redstarts, Black-throated Green Warblers, and Magnolia Warblers are just a few of the species we might observe.
