Casper comes from Åland, Finland, which is a small independent island located between Sweden and Finland. Growing up in such a place is safe but probably
contributed to Casper's early desire of exploring the world. He has always enjoyed physical activities, preferably where you can go outdoors. Casper
today prefers downhill skiing, skateboarding and surfing, of course. Music has also played a significant role in Casper's life, playing in lots of
different bands and all kinds of music.
Caspers friends describe him as a happy reliable person and a perfect listener with a great insight into human nature. Getting to know new people and taking part in their lives is something that he thinks is incredibly exciting.

Corrinke was born and raised in one of the smallest villages of the Netherlands between the famous windmills, but she quickly moved to the amazing city
of Rotterdam after that. Coming from a big family, she loves to be around people. Innovation and sustainability are her biggest passions, and after her
Master studies she started working at a start-up company, for which she travels around the world. Coaching entrepreneurs on how to grow their business
further, and connecting them to large organizations and investors to scale up.
Although she’s a lover of high intensity sports, yoga and a fanatic kick-boxer, she started surfing quite late. When she went to Dfrost Almugar for her first surfing experience last summer, she didn’t only fall in love with the surfing. Truth be told, being on the waves is one of the best feelings in the world, but food and people lover as she is, she fell even harder for the food (the lovely, lovely food), the breath-taking views, and the amazing and kind people. Leaving the craziness of her full-time job, she now joined the Dfrost Almugar team and calls Morocco her home to truly experience the culture, meet new people, and of course up her surfing skills!

She came several times before to Agadir city and Taghazout and she fell in love with the the peaceful and the good vibe that this place has, and it became one of her favorite holiday destinations.

Steph applied to work at Dfrost Almugar from a hammock in Nicaragua having quit a life working in London to go on an extended holiday. A Classicist by education Steph ended up a digital specialist for advertising agencies, but it wasn't to last. Having been to Taghazout to surf a couple of times in the past, when the opportunity came to make it her home, she boarded the plane without looking back. A late starter when it comes to surfing, what she lacks in talent she makes up for in enthusiasm and is looking forward to honing her skills on her days off.

The Yoga Villa Team
I was born in Budapest the capital city of Hungary. A landlocked country in Central Europe, which is famous for the stunning architecture, folk art and also for turkish and roman influenced thermal spas.
After I finished my studies in Hungary, I moved to London to work in the hospitality industry and experience a life abroad. While I was there I learnt a lot about hosting and taking care of people. It was a wonderful chapter of my life, but my heart was calling me back to my hometown to spend time with my family and old friends. Then another exciting chance has appeared and my traveller soul brought me to the beautiful landscape of Morocco.
I`m friendly and open-hearted person, who really likes to meet and get to know different cultures and people. I`m passionate about yoga, I`ve been doing it for 6 years regularly. That`s why working in the Villa is a great opportunity for me. I really enjoy being a host in such amazing environment surrounded with great people and providing a spectacular experience to the guests here.
