We call this practice as Metsänpeili - Mirror of the forest. 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! Bright colors are recommended!
You will strengthen your connection with nature, enjoy time without hurry and have an opportunity to unplug.
