Meet your retreat leaders!

Ashley Steyaert and Lindsay LaVelle met right here in Sámara Beach back in 2007, Ashley having just moved from Oregon, and Lindsay relocating from her home in New York City. They swiftly became best friends, fell in love with Costa Rican lifestyle and enjoyed several years learning the language and embracing the culture of this amazing place. Lindsay got certified as a yoga instructor in 2010 with Marianne Wells, and has lived and taught yoga in Sámara Beach for over 6 years. Ashley returned to the U.S. in 2010, completed the CorePower Yoga Teacher Training Program and currently teaches several yoga classes in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lindsay and Ashley have remained close through the years and teamed up to offer the best possible yoga retreat experience imaginable!
