This Bendy Babe is Taking Social Media By Storm With Her Incredible Yoga Poses in Exotic Locales

Steph Gongora, or as she is better known, Casa Colibri, is a yoga, inversions, and aerials instructor based in Costa Rica. She's recently captured the attention of the yoga world with her beautiful flowing poses, toned tattooed limbs, and breathtaking jungle backdrops. Growing up in the States, Gongora was a competitive gymnast throughout her childhood and teenage years. Three years ago, she traded a beam for a yoga mat and began dedicating her attention toward yoga. She received her first 200 hours of formal training under Meghan Currie and then went on to complete another 300 h0urs with Erinn Lewis.

Since then, she's taken on an additional 300-hour study with Alanna Kaivalya, has published three books on yoga instruction, and has been written about in Cosmopolitan, People, and Livestrong.com. Now she's sitting down with Inked to talk about her tattoos, how yoga has influenced her collection and her plans for future ink.
