About The Teacher

Nicole Elmgart Founder Treebath, Inc., Certified Forest Therapists

With her dedication to a life-long appreciation for Nature, Nicole formed Treebath after becoming certified as a Forest Therapy Guide in 2017. Partner and head of the cyber security practice at a New York-based Law Firm, Nicole turned her fifteen years of experience as an attorney towards building this nature-based start-up.

Deeply woven into her work and every-day life is a strong affinity for helping people. Nicole finds gratitude in providing the Japanese practice of “shinrin-yoku” to those who need it most. Whether it be helping stressed teens release and re-connect with nature, aiding those who suffer from substance abuse, rejuvenating over-stressed employees, or instilling wellness in elderly or veterans, Nicole aims to heal and improve overall wellness for all walks of life.

Nicole develops programs for corporate clients, individual schools, school districts, universities, and government organizations to address a variety of needs including reducing employees stress, combating the lack of recess and outdoor time in city schools, and improving focus and attention disorders.

Nicole has been interviewed and featured in a variety of publications including Elle Magazine, CNBC, and Big Apple Parent. Nicole is also co- author of the forthcoming children’s book “A Bath Without bubbles: Rowan & Jake’s First Treebath”

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
