Connecting to Arctic Nature

  • Arctic sky 2 Ruijankeino 99830 Finland (map)

Find connection to the nature around you. Unplug for a moment and just feel the nature and touch the silence.

We are opening our senses to the nature, wandering and experiencing deep nature connection in the Arctic nature. We perform some relaxed and simple yoga and breathing exercises to calm down our nervous system. During this tour we will explore nature with all our senses - hear, see, smell, touch, taste.

Practice is made mostly in standing position, but we are going to lean to the trees and maybe even sit on the ground. So do not dress on your best outfit for this experience!

This nature connection tour is inspired by Japanese nature therapy called Shinrin yoku. It is proven to reduce stress hormone production and improve the quality of sleep and overall happiness. It can also boost your memory, energy and immune system, low your blood sugar level and reduce high blood pressure, help recover from illness and it is good for bloodstream and metabolism.

We do this practice in the forest and we are leaning to trees and sitting on the ground during this class. Close contact to nature might leave marks on your clothes!
