About Steph

Steph Gongora (@casa_colibri) is a 500ERYT yoga and aerial arts teacher currently based in Uvita, Costa Rica and Asheville, North Carolina. An athlete her whole life, Steph practiced gymnastics until high school, taught pole fitness and aerial dance during her college years (where she majored in Biology and Chemistry), and has been teaching movement and yoga specifically for over a decade.

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 works about handstands, handstand pressing, starting a yoga practice, and more.

Steph 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-creators, Erin Kelly (@erinkellyart) & Bianca Scalisé ( , she believes in the continual quest for knowledge, and the application of that knowledge through spreading her love for #AuthenticMovements.
