Sensory walking

Another practice, other benefits, sensory walking is also supervised by Quintessence. This discipline allows you to reconnect with the environment and with yourself. Step by step and rhythmically, the forest trails open up to those who take the time to contemplate and listen to what nature has to offer. In a group or in family, sensory walking allows you to discover the environment that surrounds us with its shapes, textures, colors, sounds and smells. Nature thus offers a plenitude that allows you to recharge your batteries intensely.
