Forest Bathing Guide Certification Program
Registration for our Forest Bathing Guide Training Program is now open!
This program was designed to teach participants how to set up an engaging 1-3 hour Forest Bathing walk that would help people of all ages to deepen their connection to nature. Our program is suitable for people who wish to offer Forest Bathing as a wellness practice, or in combination with other practices such as yoga, meditation, Forest School, Outdoor Ed etc.
"The program was so well curated that by the end of it, I felt completely ready and confident to design my own walks and offer this beautiful experience to others. Wild Roots' approach was fluid and open, and rich in content and support. It included important topics on integration to ensure inclusivity and diversity. I recommend this to anyone who wants a nature-based business; has one and wants to expand their knowledge; and to all who simply wish to have a more consistent relationship with their connection to nature and its benefits."
