He got his 500-hour yoga certification in a training focused on the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Improvisations. He tries to integrate different styles of yoga, focusing the practice on healthy posture alignment and breathing practice. Contact Improvisation Dance has also been a fascinating experience to discover more about the endless possibilities of body and energy movement. He also offers Thai massage and his main intention is to practice the massage in a state of meditation, with a focus to allow the energy to flow freely and to liberate blockages or stagnated energy.
The desire to meet people and share is what motivated her to start this adventure as a yoga teacher. She first adhered to yoga as a student, enjoying the benefits of a regular practice and then decided to share her knowledge by teaching. Facilitating rewarding human experiences has become a real-life goal. She wishes to offer a reassuring space where the words "loving kindness", "gratitude" and "love" transform into a real art of living and interacting with others.

I escaped to La Flor De La Vida for a few days in February, where I enjoyed blissful days of sunshine and relaxation. It's a working farm, thus it was very interesting to see the animals and experience the vibe of Costa Rican life. Steven arranged transportation for me from San Jose and the airport, and everything I needed was provided on the farm. Food was delicious, wifi was great but only accessible in one part of the property (which I appreciated, because I wanted to disconnect) and the yoga classes were excellent. 100/100 would recommend to a friend!

"A little slice of farm paradise"
Steven's yoga classes were absolutely lovely in the stunning yoga shala. The farm was so charming and all the staff and volunteers were so kind and friendly. There's gorgeous trails for walks around the farm and hammocks for chilling out in. I had a fabulous laid back time, thank you everyone!

"Great teachers in a great environement"
The Finca la Flor is set in the hills of the Orosi valley. It is a very peaceful place where you cannot only do yoga with an amazing atmosphere and great teachers but also enjoy the food made of homegrown vegetables and fruit from the garden. I was really stressed when I arrived and had reached a state of peacefulness and relaxation which I havent experienced anywhere else. The teachers adapted the yoga poses to the different levels of experience of the students. I really enjoyed my stay and would totally recommend it to everybody else.

"Amazing Location & Yoga Practice"
I really loved the yoga instruction by Steven and Marine. They were thoughtful by creating a practice that was not only enjoyable but also extremely beneficial. Nonetheless, their assistance in various poses was wonderful. Thank you so much!
Additionally, the location is spectacular with beautiful views, amazing wildlife and wonderful people. The food is freshly made and comes directly from their organic farm. I also love their farming practices. They compost, do not use any pesticides or fungicides and have a wonderful irrigation system. I especially loved the fresh turmeric on site! It truly is regenerative agriculture at it's best! I'm truly grateful for the opportunity to have stayed there and would love to see them again.

"Best getaway! "
If you’re looking to getaway and relax with some yoga, this is the place! Everyone is so friendly and open. You don’t feel like a stranger or tourist while your here.
Beds are basic. Spring mattress, pillow, and blankets. If you have back issues maybe not the best for you, but my friends and I slept like babies!
It’s not far from town, yet it seems like you are! Definitely will be back!
Yoga was fun! Steven is very informative and shows modifications for poses for whatever level you are.

"Beautiful weekend of yoga, amazing food & new friends :)"
Steven organized such a great retreat! He's an amazing yoga instructor- explains everything in so much detail and my yoga practice definitely improved in just 4/5 days. My sister and I would consider ourselves beginners and we always felt comfortable with the movements. Some of the women who came with us were vegan/ gluten free so the chef accommodated for that- everything was delicious. (I actually decided to go dairy free after this because my body reacted so positively). The farm has Wi-Fi in the main cabin which is perfect for disconnecting. There's a lot of friendly animals (4 dogs, horses, goats, and a cat) and it's absolutely beautiful (wish I could add pictures to my review). I would definitely recommend this retreat for anyone looking for an eco-friendly, community- focused retreat in a scenic location. Pro-tips: bring rain-friendly layers, lemongrass essential oil/ travel-sized bug spray, and body wash/ shampoo (not provided). Thank you again for an amazing time, Steven!

"I fell in love!"
It was an overall amazing experience. It is a beautiful location and the food and accommodations were great, but the people living on the farm really made it a special place to visit. Steven is a very talented yoga teacher, and the owner, Bri, is just an amazing woman. I hope to return one day. I am so grateful for the experience.

"Excellent yoga and sweet people "
The yoga instructor was incredibly gifted. There was yoga twice a day, mainly ashtanga vinyasa but also some restorative. The food was all very healthy delicious vegan with some goat milk and goat cheese options from the farm. The farm and surroundings were so beautiful and the community members were so sweet and accommodating.

J'ai adoré l'endroit. Les paysages étaient paisibles, parfait pour la lecture sur le balcon du salon de yoga. Les gens étaient très sympathiques et la nourriture était excellente. Je crois que je n'ai jamais aussi bien mangé. Steven est un très bon professeur. Grâce à lui, j'ai découvert un nouveau style de yoga et je sais maintenant comment faire un ''hand stand''.
