Manuela Siegfried was born and raised in a beautiful, biodiverse country called Costa Rica. Her parents emigrated from Switzerland 50 years ago. Having a biologist as a father made contact with nature an intrinsic part of her life. This passion for nature led her to work as a naturalist tourism guide for almost 4 years. She knows the country in and out. But she wanted something more. Manuela wanted to help people connect with nature not only in a rational but also in a more emotional and intimate way.This is when she came across the concept of Shinrin Yoku or forest bathing and Forest and Nature Therapy guides. Her goal is to help people slow down in a natural setting so they can benefit from all the healing and grounding power it has to offer and reconnect with themselves.Manuela Siegfried is Costa RicaÍs first certified forest therapy guide by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy and she is eager to show visitors the beauty of Costa RicaÍs setting from a very different perspective.
