Yoga is a powerful and transcendental journey that awaits everyone with open arms. It provides a cleansing release through physical practice that expands our hearts, minds, and spirits, ultimately leading to individual, and therefore, collective growth. Yoga is the impossibly intricate, yet surprisingly simple web that is woven with every thought, movement, motion, intention, and deep inner summoning.

And we are all weavers.

About Steph

Steph Gongora (@casa_colibri) is a 200HR E-RYT, 500HR RYT yoga and aerial arts teacher currently based in Uvita, Costa Rica. An athlete her whole life, Steph practiced gymnastics until high school, taught pole fitness and aerial dance during college (where she majored in Biology and Chemistry), and started a serious daily yoga practice over seven years ago.

Her teaching style combines precise breakdowns of form and anatomical cuing with a creative flow style, stressing unusual transitions and authentic movement practices. She has developed a deep love and respect for inversions of all kinds, and is the author of multiple books including – The Beginner’s Guide to Handstand, The Beginner’s Guide to Handstand Pressing, and The Beginner’s Guide to Starting a Yoga Practice.

Steph has trained under a wide variety of teachers and lineages including Meghan Currie, Christina Sell, Erin Lewis, Alanna Kaivalya, and the Yoga Medicine team. She enjoys pulling from a variety of schools, as well as outside fitness modalities to craft funky and intricate sequences that focus on fun, but logical creativity.  Often found teaching with co-creatrix, Erin Kelly (@erinkellyart), she believes in the continual quest for knowledge, and the application of that knowledge through spreading her love for #AuthenticMovements.

Steph is happily married with 5 furry children and moved down to Costa Rica in the Fall of 2016 to start construction on a Functional Medicine/Yoga retreat center on the South Pacific coast (opening March 2018!). When she isn’t doing yoga, she enjoys reading, singing, writing, dancing, anything outdoors, and spending time with her little family. Her writings on yoga & life can be found in Yoga Journal, Mantra Magazine, People, and more.
