Forest Bathing Experience

Our new forest bathing overnight experience is the perfect way to escape the burdens of every day life and reconnect with yourself and nature

We invite you to join us for twenty four hours to experience forest bathing and yoga with Swedish teacher Helena Skoog. Helena was born and raised in the forests of Sweden and has spent the past four years living off-grid in ancient forestry in Sussex.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the term 'forest bathing' simply means the practice of slowing down and totally immersing yourself in the forest atmosphere. Inspired by the Japanese art of Shinrin-yoku which draws on the therapeutic powers of nature to reduce stress and impart you with a profound sense of peace.

Helena will skilfully guide you through a series of sensory invitations enabling you to connect, in the present moment, with yourself and your natural surroundings.

Arrive at The Spread Eagle on Sunday and take time to swim, relax and enjoy a delicious three course dinner. Following a deeply comfortable night's sleep, set off from The Spread Eagle for an 11am start, followed by lunch on return to the hotel at approximately 1.15pm. After lunch Helena will lead a two-hour rejuvenating yoga session inspired by the morning's natural surrounds.
