Cris has been the yoga guru for Pura Vida Adventures for over a decade. Born in Brazil, this globetrotting goddess fell in love with yoga at a very young age, becoming a devout practitioner of Hatha and Bhakti yoga at only 18. She studied full time at the Swasthya Yoga School in Brazil and attended a variety of workshops there that deepened her passion for yoga. Now with decades of experience, Cris has taught, practiced, and studied yoga all over the world (from Chile to India to England to Guatemala). But it is the beauty and peace of Costa Rica that makes her call Santa Teresa home.
