Forests for wellbeing
Bringing the benefits of forests to you
In this talk Gary Evans and Ellen Devine will explore the emerging evidence that nature, time spent in it and the connection with it improves our health and wellbeing.
They will look specifically at forest bathing which is a method of accessing this very important connection with nature.
Gary will also discuss the science and processes behind the benefits and how he has been involved with Derby University research and the NHS looking particularly at improvements in mental health.

If the answer to any of these is 'Yes!' then have a look at these videos from Ashtanga Yoga Exmouth. Along with others, they are a fantastic resource for you to use whenever you feel the need.
Yoga for Everyone
