  • Courtney Fletcher

    Courtney is a Florida native with a degree in wildlife ecology and conservation with over eight years of experience guiding people through the beautiful habitats of the Florida Keys and also a certified registered yoga teacher trainer with Yoga Alliance. After 10 years as a competitive gymnast, a lower back surgery brought her athletic ability to a halt. Looking for a way to ease the pain and regain strength and flexibility, she discovered yoga and immediately fell in love with the practice.

Uvita is a small village in southern Costa Rica. It is notable for its location where the mountains most closely reach the Pacific Ocean, it is the closest village to Marino Ballena National Park. This tropical hamlet possesses great charm in an unspoiled and serene atmosphere. With palm trees swaying in the wind, providing shady relief from the intense Pacific sun, there is plenty of outdoor options in this tropical paradise.

    "My rating is 10 out of 10 for the yoga and meditation practices, the daily workshops, all of Courtney's teachings and love over the course of the retreat, and the relaxing and inspiring natural setting in Uvita. Courtney teaches that our yoga practices are joyful, personal and our very own. She led us through a variety of different types of yoga styles and meditation experiences, culminating with a workshop about creating a joyful home practice. I felt like I had learned so much from Courtney about my own journey and what I need for myself, that I actually created my own practice the day after the retreat ended. I'm exploring it daily knowing that I can change it anytime according to what I need and what is fun. The teachings, especially the meditation, provided me with a new perspective about creating space and more joy in my life and my heart. The day after the retreat ended I took a yoga class with another instructor and she said that whatever I had done at the retreat seemed to really make a wonderful difference in my practice. My experience with Courtney included some life-changing revelations that I needed, and I trust you will receive the insights that you need if you open your heart to Courtney and the Serenidad EcoYoga Retreat!" website, edited
