Just to let everyone know, I went to this studio when I was in Monteverde last week and it is totally abandoned. I heard from another local shop owner that the owners moved back to the US a couple months ago.

I got a bad heat stroke while I was in Costa Rica and Natalia got me going again. So I was ready for more travels. Too bad I couldn't do any yoga classes, but the studio looks beautiful.

My husband and I both went for reflexology to help us try to relax and switch off after a busy week on the move. Karen was excellent and the treatment was fantastic. A lovely place, well worth a visit.
