Perfect for corporate or incentive groups, this full-day of activity can be tailored to the needs of the group and around the themes of your meeting, retreat or team session.

Then we’ll move into a guided forest therapy experience.
Our owner, Gabrielle Young, is a wellness coach and internationally accredited (ANFT) nature and forest therapy guide with more than 25 years’ experience in designing and facilitating leadership and team development programs in New Zealand and internationally. Whether she’s coaching individuals through transition and the world of work, or facilitating tailored wellbeing workshops that help employees enhance their own wellbeing and develop their resilience, Gabrielle thrives on designing and delivering forest therapy experiences, wellbeing workshops and retreats for group, team and incentive events.
Gabrielle will lead your group through a series of invitations to deliberately slow down, and to become present and mindful, while gently walking in a beautiful location. We will conclude with a tea ceremony to integrate the experience.
