As much as we love all of the amazing hikes and adventures upstate, y'all know we realllllyy love connecting with nature within the five boroughs.

Tonight, we'll be diving into a sensory experience in Bushwick Inlet Park with Leah Friedlander, founder of Access Yoga Studio. Join in for a guided forest bathing experience, where Leah will help us connect with ourselves and nature in the middle of a city of 8 million.

We'll start and end at Blundstone Shop where we'll learn more about the practice and science behind forest bathing, and enjoy some delicious drinks and great company.
