Blue Spirit was founded by Stephan Rechtschaffen who also co-founded the renowned Omega Institution Rhinebeck, NY. He is a nationally recognized holistic physician who lectures on health, wellness, nutrition, longevity, and time. These interests have drawn him to living and working in the more mindful and slower paced environment of Blue Spirit in Costa Rica.
Both lifelong athletes, Joyce a competitive figure skater and James a runner, yoga made sense in their bodies first and then opened their minds and started to change their lives.  James & Joyce Atherton opened Modern Yoga in 2016.  They have both devolped their mindfulness meditation & yoga practice over the last 10 years.  Both are registered E-RYT Yoga Instructors Certified with Live Love Teach.  They Live in Cleveland Ohio.
I traveled to Blue Spirit with other people from my yoga studio. This trip was my second to Blue Spirit. The facility is beautiful, the staff are wonderful, and the vegan food is yummy. Blue Spirit provides a peaceful setting in which to escape from the rigors of every day life and to “drop in.” I hope to return next year. Marcy F - Texas
