Helene grew up in Montreal (Canada) which left her yearning for open spaces. In 2009, she settled in Saranac Lake, finding home in the wilderness of the Adirondack Park.
After several years of skiing, hiking, and taking her yoga practice outdoors, she felt called to develop a different relationship with nature, which led her to Forest Bathing and Riverwalking. A wellness educator for over 25 years, Helene guides sensory immersions in nature that reconnect us with ourselves and with others, as well as offer opportunities to experience our being a part of nature.
