I first became interested in Shiatsu purely by chance, if chance is to be believed, when I had a treatment for a painful back while my regular chiropractor was on holiday. After one treatment not only was my back better but I experienced a sense of well being and abundant energy and joy for three weeks afterwards! I wanted to learn more about this amazing therapy 

 

I believe that Shiatsu, Qigong and Meditation have the ability to transform lives, in creating deeper understanding and new awareness on all levels of our being, and enabling us to touch the divinity in us all.

Georgina’s specialist degree in advanced environmental studies has provoked interest in how modern living interacts with nature. She trained as a Woodland Ranger in tandem to her architectural studies, working for Wilderness Woods, Natural Pathways and enduring a week-long interview course with Ray Mears and the Woodlore team in Sussex.  

  

“I want to create a platform to get people outside and experience the mental and physical benefits of being in nature” Says Georgina. 

 

Georgina is currently completing a degree in Shinrin Yoku, the Japanese practice of forest bathing, this is an immersive experience, using all five senses to connect with the natural world. Many studies have shown that being in the woodland can boost your immune system and can improve mental health and wellbeing.

Georgina, tell us..........

1. How do you like to start your day?

 

My mornings are spent walking through the woods with my dog, a herbal tea in a flask and catching a bit of Komorebi where I can. On sunny days, I embrace the undulating landscape of the South Downs, trekking past our favourite watering hole or heading towards the Chattri memorial with a compact stove for warming the morning coffee. Nature provides my body with a jolt of energy that sets my vibe for the rest of the day.

 

2. Top tip on including self care into your day?

 

Exercise is self care for my body and my mind, so after a PT session at the gym, I indulge in a relaxing bath and a forest bathing podcast. Positive nutrition begins with compassion toward ourselves, I cook meals from scratch using seasonal produce grown at my allotment when I can. I find cooking relaxing and a way to unwind after a busy day.

 

3. Who is one of your key inspirations and why?

Paul Kirtley has become a real inspiration to me on my bushcraft journey. Back in 2007 I spent a week in the Sussex countryside (in mid February) with Paul and his fantastic team, this experience gave me a better understanding of the fundamentals of Bushcraft. Paul has a plethora of knowledge and can deliver workshops with real enthusiasm and energy. Surviving February snow in just a bivi bag under a lean-to shelter wasn't so bad with Paul at hand. https://paulkirtley.co.uk/

 

4 Name a yoga pose that you love and why?

Child's pose, I love the moment of rest, it reminds me that non-doing can be just as valuable as action and doing.
