Immerse Yourself in Nature
Experience the Benefits of Shinrin Yoku
“Wilderness to the people of America is a spiritual necessity,
an antidote to the high pressure of modern life,
a means of regaining serenity and equilibrium.”
~ Sigurd Olson, 1946

What is 
Shinrin Yoku?

Shinrin Yoku is the Japanese art of "forest bathing",

translated as: taking in the forest air with all the senses.


Backed by over 35 years of scientific studies, Shinrin Yoku is a gentle, immersive, intentional and meditative walk through the forest that has been found to reduce stress, boost immune function, as well as increase focus and productivity. 

Why do we need 

Shinrin Yoku?

Because Humanity needs Nature.  


Our purpose at Motz Studios is to re-introduce you to

the mystery and transformative power of the forest.  

We invite you to find healing and joy, quiet your mind,

soften your stresses, and to do this in partnership with the forest.

What are your

Walks Like?

Our walks are a professionally-guided experience inspired by Shinrin Yoku.  


During our forest walks you will slow down and enliven your senses,

allowing yourself to connect deeply and personally with the forest.

You will find the serenity of nature heightens the pleasure of silence and stillness. 

Your sojourn with the woods may lead you back to yourself.
