Core Subject: Yoga
Born and raised in Costa Rica, Steven has now been experimenting with Yoga for about 4 years. He got his 500hr-RYT certification in a training focused on Vinyasa Flow and the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. He feels that one can practice Yoga to explore mind and body, observing oneself and realizing who or what we truly are in essence, discovering and connecting with our real potential in life. Steven shares and lives with curiosity exploring and studying his own experiences in life and as he continues to learn, he shares from his heart, reconnecting with our essential nature as life creators
In front of the public school of La Flor in Paraiso, Cartago. We are 30 minutes from Cartago city center in a town called La Flor. You can find us on Google Maps by searching "Finca Agroecologica La Flor".
Buses arrive to La Flor from Cartago and stop 100 meters from our entrance. We have a 200-meter driveway before reaching our community center.
Please ask if you need a ride from the airport.
During this retreat, you will have daily yoga practices. Steven will guide you through a daily class, energizing and purifying your body and mind through a unique dynamic asana practice focused on alignment and breath-work, integrating concepts of Ashtanga like bandha, drishti and ujjayi breath, in combination with healthy alignment principles like in Anusara and Hatha Yoga. The practices will be adapted to all-level yogis and yoginis. Restorative yin classes are also an option.
