Shinrin Yoku is designed for anyone to do, in any environment, with the purpose of connecting people deeper to their natural surroundings. You don't have to hike the longest trail to come back with a story. Shinrin Yoku can be achieved by anyone, but I recommend a facilitated experience with a trained guide to get the hang of it.
