Forest Bathing Tree House Retreat

Coucoo Grands Chênes, Raray, France


Wake up high amongst the trees, invigorated by gentle sounds and clean sights on the Forest Bathing Tree House retreat. Ease the mind into a state of focus and connection as you spend time with nature, shifting unwanted weight to welcome in new, positive mindsets.

Open each day with Vinyasa Yoga in synchronised motions with the first light of day in one of the castle rooms, which will be privately reserved for attending guests throughout the retreat. Visions of the ancient forest and green fields will provide a mind-easing panorama to help guests enter a calm state of being. While the movements will aim to improve core strength and dynamic energy flow. In the evening, practice Yin Yoga, which will be deeper but slower, combined with elements of Yoga Nidra and visualisation techniques heighten awareness and a connection to personal identity.

Experience the ancient Japanese ritual of forest bathing (often known as Silvotherapy) to unravel trapped emotions and reset the body and mind. Further enhance connection with Mother Nature in deep breathing exercises and a Cacao and Chanting ceremony in the forest, held on a separate afternoon. Involving cacao, which is made into a natural plant-based drink and accompanied by a series of dynamic exercises. Let emotions roam free and be enveloped in self-acceptance before translating these experiences into coping mechanisms to build a fulfilled and connected lifestyle at home.

Each day, field-to-fork healthy meals will be prepared from a menu carefully designed by Balance Holidays. Gain knowledgeable insight into the health and nutritional benefits of ingredients, establishing a healthy, happy with food. A typical French dinner is also included in this programme to mark an authentic experience.
