Yoga, for me, is a mix between science and heart ~ Stefano

Costa Rica is a special place to practice yoga.  We have a beautiful and natural landscape, a culture that embraces community, and visitors from around the globe who bring their unique worldview.

The shala at Florblanca is our favorite place for yoga in Costa Rica.  Not only is it open to the jungle and the ocean outside its doors, it’s also where we can practice with Stefano and share in the beauty he brings to the world.


Stefano came to Costa Rica over 25 years ago. His love of the country, of the people, and of the yoga culture has helped make Costa Rica his home all this time.

Florblanca is grateful everyday to have Stefano here with us, leading yoga classes for locals and visitors. He brings such joy and wisdom to his classes and reminds us always to approach yoga – and life – with a beginner’s mind.
