Pilates and Yoga Everyday

The Pilates studio sessions and mat classes are integral to life at Florblanca.  With teachers who inspire us to discover new depths in our practice, we are honored to provide this service to our guests and our community here in Santa Teresa.

Stefano Allegri leads our yoga program and we’re pleased to offer classes Monday through Saturday for all levels, from beginner to experienced (Tuesday and Thursday classes are more advanced and require experience).  We’ll also be adding in beginner/basic Vinyasa flow afternoon yoga classes with Valentina from 4-5pm on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday.

Jenny Speirs leads our Pilates program and teaches mat classes as well as private and semi-private sessions in our fully equipped studio along with Nadja, and our newest teacher, Monika Larsen.

Meet Monika

We’re so happy to welcome Monika Larsen, a Pilates instructor who recently moved to Santa Teresa from Copenhagen, Denmark. Here is Monika’s story in her own words:

I’m 25 years old and from Copenhagen, Denmark. I graduated as a physiotherapist in January 2016 and have been working in a clinic with physiostherapists, osteopaths, stretch therapists, massage therapists, and dietitians. It was a clinic about being healthy the whole way around. We also had a Pilates studio where I was teaching mat classes, TRX classes, low back pain-classes, private sessions with equipment and did physiotherapy. I am trained in BASI Pilates, an international certification. My focus in physio is “rehabilitation” and “pain.” Before all of this, I was a sergeant in the Danish army for 2.5 years 🙂 I relocated to Santa Teresa because I want to see the world and get new experiences on my own.

Monika will be an excellent addition to our program, bringing new insight and dynamics for our students.

Below are class schedules and information for both yoga and Pilates at Florblanca.  We hope to see you in class soon!

See you on the mat!

Celebrate Your Journey Together

With all the details of our day-to-day existence, we can easily lose the connection with our true passion, our energy, and our spirit.   This lost connection can be magnified to even greater degrees when we’re in a relationship.  The journey we’re on together loses […]
