Why Mindful Nature Walk?

Especially in these days it is important that we connect to nature and to ourselves. We can slow down and find nourishment in the simplicity of being in the moment. We can:

🌳 listen to the sound of the birds,
🌳 feel the breeze on the skin,
🌳 listen to the forest and to whatever it has to offer for each of us
🌳 and to take time to be with our own hearts.


What is Mindful Nature Walk?

In Mielimaisema Walks I combine elements from nature connection exercises, forest meditation, art, traditional Finnish knowledge of nature, forest bathing (Shinrin-Yoku) and Natural Mindfulness. Walking mindfully in nature is a proven way to boost levels of health, wellbeing and happiness.


What will we do?

I will guide you through beautiful landscapes in Uutela trail which is the largest and most naturally diversified recreational area in East Helsinki to reduce stress levels and give your health and wellbeing a boost.

I will share with you some simple but powerful nature connection exercises to help you develop a deeper connection with the natural world. Main purpose is to connect to nature and to ourselves. The aim is to promote harmony within the body, mind and soul. The exercises help you to build an enjoyable connection that can be full of joy. Nature accepts you as you are.

Nature art practice calms your mind, and increases your attention to detail and appreciation of beauty. The simple practice can help you to reconnect with nature, and remind you of the resilient and beautiful life that is part of our world, and part of us too.

You will enjoy nature with all your senses and find out about the healing power of walking mindfully in nature. We will also get inspired by the seasonal wild plants and enjoy wild herb tea & healthy snacks with a wild flavor.

About Sanna | Mielimaisema - the Doer

Nature is my teacher, place of power and home. Nature strengthens my mind, body and soul. Finnish Forests are my endless source of inspiration – like nature itself. I have a deeply honest and strong will to help people reconnect with nature and find their own true nature. To bring us back to nature and to find wellness from within. Through nature connection we can find the keys for healing and empowering not only ourselves but also everything around us.

I grew up in the countryside of Eastern Finland where nature was present in everyday life. Already as a child I was making art with materials of nature and finding nourishment in the woods. I was, and I still am, fascinated about the mystery of nature.

I have been on this path for many years with passion and love. I have a degree in Master´s of Arts and I'm certified Holistic Health Coach and Nature Guide. Today I work as Wellness and Nature Entrepreneur at my company Mielimaisema. I'm committed to think and re-think all the possibilities for constantly developing and sharing my work. I go on with my mission through my art and forest walks and also by offering courses, trainings, couching and mentoring.

In my work I combine elements from holistic health coaching, nature connection exercises, forest meditation, art, traditional Finnish knowledge of nature and ancient wisdom, forest bathing and natural mindfulness.

Footwear: It is advisable to bring walking boots or other sturdy footwear.

Clothing: The temperature and conditions during a walk can change quickly and so appropriate layers of clothing are recommended based on local forecasts.

Water: It is important to remain hydrated during the walk so bring some water, but remember we will be walking in nature and so there will be no public toilets along the route.
