It has been a wonderful experience. We felt comfortable and relaxed during the whole time and the overall activity was very well organized. Really reccomended!

The participants have feedback that the trainer is not engaging the participants enough and there isn't much energy/positivity felt during the session. There is too much of talking (half of the 1 hour) and many a times are repetitive information. There is only about a 25mins left for the actual exercise itself which is kind of short. Suggest SeekSophie to provide more experienced trainers as we do not mind the higher costs. Thank you.

Thank you for taking your time to write a feedback Tracie. It is unfortunate that there might have been a mismatch of objectives when you signed up. This 60-min online rest and wellbeing workshop comprises of a content segment on basic theories of rest (first half workshop), and the 2nd half is the guided individual rest experience. In the spirit of rest, the entire workshop is designed and intended to be slow and quiet, a time for participants to be with themselves. It was never meant to be energetic, high vibe or highly interactive. We will bring your feedback back to Seek Sophie's customer engagement team to ensure future clients fully understand what the different workshops are about. All our instructors are highly qualified and certified professionals, who have supported thousands of individuals and teams to engage in restful, quiet inward journeys for their wellbeing. We send you restful well wishes ~ :)

This was a relaxing and energising outing - thanks You Min for introducing the concept of forest bathing and being such an open and engaging guide! I wasn’t sure what to expect with a forest bathing outing as I had not encountered the concept before. However, I really enjoyed the session and it opened my eyes to a new way to engage with nature and my surroundings. You Min is an informed guide and passionate about nature. I would highly recommend this experience to those new to forest bathing and wanting to get closer to Singapore’s natural environment.

Not gonna lie, we didn’t really know what to expect for forest bathing, but it’s basically a Japanese eco-therapy practice in the forest! You min is a great facilitator and invited us to open our senses, listen to Nature — the trees, the wind, feel the earth beneath us and just r e l a x. It was such a healing experience for me and I felt my worries and anxiety lift. I loved the mini sharing sessions after each section and drinking hot butterfly pea flower tea in wooden cups (like a picnic!) at the end really rounded up the whole experience beautifully. It’s great to do solo, or even as a team bonding activity!

Youmin takes care of you from start to finish. She places extra attention to make sure you enjoy a smooth experience by making sure she is clear with her instructions/directions & checking in on you before the date of the session. She is a wonderful facilitator who allows you to exercise full ownership from your experience (because the ultimate takeaway is unique to you & your very own interpretation). You will have to experience it yourself to understand the beauty of forest therapy. The recent Moonwalk gave us an unforgettable night nature bathing with the almost full moon. Will look forward to more one-of-a-kind experiences again 🌈🌳🌲
