Nature Retreat 

Replenish your reserves with forest bathing. A form of therapy long recognised in Japan and a current health trend. Experience the flow of energy during the River Flow. Immerse yourself in the diverse flora and fauna with Barbara Uhl. Being outside becomes an intense experience that allows for deep and lasting relaxation.

The retreat will be held from 23 to 27  October 2022. Programmes are subject to change.

Barbara Uhl, trained nature guide
nature pedagogue

A mountain girl! Born in the Salzburg municipality of Pinzgau, (Austria), right at the heart of the heavenly mountains. As a trained nature guide and instructor for the Tyrol region, I have an eye for detail and am constantly inspired to discover what new wonders nature has to offer.

Why forest bathing?
Forest bathing takes you to a heightened level of sensory awareness. Your senses are open to the diverse and intricate nature of the forest. We also soak in a bath containing terpenes. These are a chemical medium trees use to communicate with each other. Terpenes have been proven to assist in relaxing our body, lowering our stress levels and strengthening our immune system. Forest bathing is a Japanese practice known as Shinrin Yoku. It has long been used there as a recognised therapy for burnout symptoms. Each of my forest bathing excursions is unique. I tailor the program to suit the needs of the individual. But the aim is always the same: deep and long-lasting relaxation.

Please note: My forest bathing practice does not include any esoteric elements. As a nature guide, my ultimate goal is to experience the wonder of nature.
