|June 2019 – The Spread Eagle Hotel & Spa, Midhurst is now offering forest bathing experiences with Swedish teacher Helena Skoog, who was born and raised in the forests of Sweden and has spent the past four years off-grid in ancient forestry in Sussex. For those not familiar with the term, ‘forest bathing’ simply means the practice of slowing down and becoming totally immersed in the forest atmosphere.
In our chaotic, urbanised lives the need to disconnect from the digital world and reconnect with the natural world has never been so strong. Forest bathing is the most natural way to calm your senses by surrounding yourself in a beautiful forest setting – breathing in the wood-fresh and mossy-cool air and allowing your body and mind to de-stress and reconnect with nature. Inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku which translated means “taking in the forest atmosphere”, forest bathing draws on the therapeutic powers of nature to reduce stress and impart you with a profound sense of peace.
The Spread Eagle Hotel and Spa has recently partnered with Helena Skoog to create forest bathing experiences, making the most of the enchanting Sussex woods which surround The Spread Eagle. Guests will be skilfully guided by Helena through a series of sensory invitations enabling them to connect, in the present moment with themselves and their natural surroundings.
The hotel will be offering two different forest bathing experiences; a full day forest bathing package or add an overnight stay at The Spread Eagle alongside their forest bathing experience, to truly recharge and connect with nature, free from the distractions of our modern world. Guests can fully immerse themselves in their woodland setting before returning to The Spread Eagle for a delicious two-course lunch with Helena, alongside a forest inspired softail. An overnight forest bathing package includes an additional two-hour rejuvenating yoga session led by Helena and full use of the hotel’s spa and swimming pool.
|The Spread Eagle’s Forest Bathing experience is the perfect way to escape the burdens of everyday life and use the forest as a natural wellbeing therapy that utilises the healing power of the forest.|
