Agata from Germany, TMT Professional Shinrin Yoku Forest Bathing Guide student on her Level 1 training, discussing her journey to wellness. "Health and well-being are important aspects of my life. That's why I want to connect my work more with nature, especially with Forest Bathing. I have had a strong connection to nature since when I was a child. My mother used to take me to Nature all the time. We used to take walks in the park and in the forest watching the animals and giving them food. In Autumn, I remember we collected chestnuts and acorns and made little figures out of them. There's also one memory about my grandmother that she went to the forest with my grandfather when he was sick to hug trees. So these beautiful memories still trigger a longing for nature in me. That's why I enjoyed being in nature so much. I think many can relate that we disconnect from nature all the time due to our jobs or living in the big cities and that's when I want to change. Last year I saw a documentary on shinrin-yoku and that was the first time that I heard this term in relation to this practice and I was so fascinated that I started to do my research. And that's when I stumbled upon TMT. And I just thought wow you need to do this training and it really was the best choice. I learned so much about the science behind shinrin-yoku and about the health benefits and also a few new things about myself. And you meet a lot of wonderful people from all over the world. I really look forward every week to our online course, so I can learn with my group and with people who have the same mindsets and similar views of the world. ," commented Agata Bielski. Follow along Agata's journey here: Meet Our Students: At The Mindful Tourist, we aim to provide a conducive environment for you to go deep into the vast and transforming world of Forest.

The results of Japanese studies have shown forest bathing improves sleep quality, mood and ability to focus, strengthens the immune system and reduces stress levels. Chronic stress and inactivity can contribute to the development of many diseases. Spending time in nature, away from modern technology and the hustle and bustle of big cities can improve your physical, mental and even spiritual health by reducing the effects of stress on your body and fostering nature connectedness. Prescribed forest bathing in Japan has led to a healthier lifestyle for people of all ages. With growing interest in forest therapy and the health benefits of forest bathing among researchers and psychologists, The Mindful Tourist aims to promote the practice of forest bathing, increase awareness of nature’s holistic healing powers and make the practice of Japanese Shinrin Yoku more easily accessible to a wider range of audiences.

There are 3 types of fees involved in becoming a franchisee.

  • Initial franchise fee: This is a one-time initial fee to become a franchisee. Depending on the size of your territory, this fee starts from US$ 15,000, and it is due before the opening of the business. This fee is waived if you are a part of TMT Connected Community.
  • Marketing fee: This is contributed to the common marketing fund. You will benefit from our advertising campaigns with a global, regional or local market focus. This fee is 10% of your previous year revenue. This fee is waived if you are a part of TMT Connected Community.
  • Operating and management fee: This fee is 20% of the revenue from each sign-up (for level 1 training). The money transfer fee is borne by both parties, equally.

In addition to the fees above, please factor in the salary for your instructors. TMT recommends our certified instructors to you and you get to make the final decision in the recruitment process. If you are a TMT certified instructor yourself, you may choose to teach all classes yourself, so there is no need to hire anyone.

TMT students belong to TMT Connected Community and as a Level 2 certified instructor, you get the right to own a TMT training center, with the initial franchise and marketing fees waived.

Operating and management fees are paid as a percentage of revenue (20%), which means you will only have to pay when there is a sign-up. Therefore, this is considered low risk for the franchisee.

Since you are a certified instructor, you will not need to hire any TMT instructor, if you choose to teach the classes yourself.

It is life-enriching to be sharing your knowledge with others and help them reach their goals.
