Authentic Movements Yoga Teaching Training in Costa Rica

Sugacoat It travelled to Costa Rica to capture the magic of this transformational 200 hour Yoga teacher training, offered by Authentic Movements.

The training took place in the beautiful Flō Retreat Center – a Health & Wellness Escape deep in the rainforest of South Pacific Costa Rica. Shooting this video and photos was so rewarding! We really connected with the incredible team at Authentic Movements. Steph Góngora, Erin Kelly, and Bianca Scalise were extremely passionate about offering an exceptional Yoga Alliance registered 200HR Yoga Teacher Training. They provided the participants with a solid foundation in sequencing, alignment, anatomy, and yoga philosophy.

Steph Gongora (@casa_colibri) is a 200HR E-RYT, 500HR RYT yoga and aerial arts teacher. She 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.

Erin Kelly (@erinkellyart) is a traveling yoga and movement teacher, and is known for her personal grace and fluidity of movement in both practice and teaching. She can often be found upside down or cultivating creativity through unusual transitions.

Bianca Scalise ( has a heart on fire to share the healing and soul enriching practices of Yoga and meditation as well as make a positive impact in the world. Dynamic and tantric Meditations are sprinkled into her classes as well as her love for anatomy and understanding the body.  

Flō Retreat Center offered a beautiful backdrop for the training, and for our videographers. Serene and lush jungle-scapes, beautiful waterfalls, and breath-taking sunset beach views made for an experience straight out of a fairy-tale! Flō Retreat Center is a gorgeous space to host a Costa Rica retreat, and a dream location for yoga videographers and photographers!

It was an honour to capture these life-changing moments on video and photos as well as watching the teachers-in-training come together as a community, take their yoga practices to new heights, and step into their confidence and power as future yoga teachers. By the end of the training, these women were practically family!

Thank you for trusting us as your dedicated videographer and photographer for this project!
