Shinrin-yoku or forest bathing is a japanese practice discovered in the 80’s that started as a scientific investigation about the effects of nature on humans. They discovered a lot of benefits on human immersions in nature, and as a consequence this practice has become a therapeutic exercise. Today in Japan there are more than 60 certified trails and between 2 and 3 million people practice Shinrin Yoku on a regular basis.

Manuela Siegfried was born and raised in this beautiful, bio diverse country called Costa Rica. Having a biologist as a father, made contact with nature an intrinsic part of her life. This passion led her to work as a naturalist tourism guide for 3 years. She came across the concept of Shinrin-Yoku and the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy and immediately felt inspired and related to it.
Manuela was trained and certified in 2018 and has been guiding very actively since then. She is passionate about helping people awaken their senses and slowing down in a natural setting so they can reconnect with themselves and the more than human world. Falling in love again with the natural world helps to rediscover our intimate, personal relationship with the forest and we become aware that we actually ARE nature.
Manuela is also a mentor and trainer of guides with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy and is absolutely committed and in love with her job.
