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.
Steph Gongora (@casa_colbiri) is a certified yoga and aerial teacher currently based in Austin, TX. She completed her first formal 200hr training with Meghan Currie, and continued to pursue an additional 300hr training with Christina Sell at The San Macros School of Yoga. In Austin, she regularly attends additional training with Erinn Lewis of Sukha Yoga, and recently started another online 200hr study with Alanna Kaivalya.
An athlete her whole life, Steph practiced gymnastics until high school, taught pole fitness during college (where she studied Biology and Chemistry), and started a serious daily yoga practice over three years ago. Her teaching style combines precise breakdowns of form and anatomical cuing with a creative flow style, stressing unusual transitions and authentic movements practices. She has developed a deep love and respect for inversions of all kinds, which is what promoted her to write her first E-Book in early 2016 – The Beginner’s Guide to Handstand.
Steph is happily married with three furry children and has plans to move down to Costa Rica in the fall of 2016 to start construction on a Functional Medicine/Yoga retreat center on the South Pacific coast. When she isn’t doing yoga, she enjoys reading, writing, anything outdoors, writing more E-Books (probably about more Yoga) and spending time with her little family.
