Hospedaje El Bosquecito is situated on a quiet section of the main road of Uvita. Located right beside a small creek and forest, guests have the pleasure of being up close to birds, toucans, monkeys, sloths, and iguanas. The sound of the water brings a tranquil atmosphere. Restaurants, banks, and other services are a short walk away.

During this retreat, you will have a daily schedule filled with two yoga sessions, two guided meditations, and an ecological immersion. Because the purpose of this retreat is to help you regain inner serenity, you will be taking a hike through the jungle, explore the river, and a relaxing walk on the beach. By the end of this retreat, you will feel loved, healed, and at peace with who you are inside and out.

Other than getting a chance to hone your yoga skills and techniques, you also get the opportunity to get to know the beauty that nature holds. On this retreat, you will be going to the beach to let the gentle waves take away your worries. You will also be visiting the waterfalls to remind you of the beautiful and amazing things in your life. An eco hike and a walk through the bamboo forest is also part of your adventure.

    CONS Cons: Not much!

    PROS Pros: The GypSEA yoga teacher training course was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Can't say enough good about Courtney as an inspiring teacher. The setting of Uvita, Costa Rica provided an adventurous and unique aspect to the course. It was as challenging as it was rewarding. I highly recommend the course to anyone thinking about deepening their knowledge of yoga or becoming an instructor.

    "A few weeks ago I left to Costa Rica to deepen my yoga practice without knowing that I was also embarking on a deeper journey, within myself. In these past few weeks of digging in my mind & soul; I discovered things that I didn't even realize were still bottled up such as childhood trauma, loss of my sister, negative thought patterns, various fears, insecurities, my ego etc. I used to keep my feelings suppressed and believed that things will heal in time but have now learned that it's LOVE that heals, along with forgiveness & compassion for myself first and foremost."

    "I wasn't alone on this journey, I got to spend this time alongside some beautiful souls from all over the world; everyone on their own journey. We learned not only how to connect with our true selves but with each other as well and above all walked away with a better understanding that we are all one, interconnected. Here's to living more consciously and shining our light bright because we never know who's gloom is being illuminated. Thank you Courtney Fletcher for being THE best teacher and helping us find the courage to get in touch with ourselves. So excited and proud to say that I am now a certified yoga teacher and can not wait to start sharing the Healing art of yoga!"

    "My Gypsea Yoga teacher training was beautiful, challenging (in a good way), supportive, inspiring & educational. I felt it was a good balance of learning the curriculum, plus getting to experience costa rica. Courtney was knowledgeable, compassionate & held the group together in a loving way as we went through the intensive program. We also had support from other teachers which helped greatly with the emotional, mental & spiritual shifts that happened. I enjoyed the theme of connecting to our inner child with play and with the local nonprofit afterschool program that Courtney founded. My fellow classmates were also amazing & supportive and I have cultivated meaningful friendships from the YTT as well as continuous support and guidance from Courtney. Loved my training so much and highly recommend! Excited for the future! Thank you Courtney & Gypsea Yoga School!!!"

Her connection to the people, culture, and environment where we stayed offered a personal and immersive chance to experience Uvita, Costa Rica. This experience was supported and enhanced by thoughtfully interwoven yoga and meditation activities that brought it all together throughout the trip."

    "Courtney is the true essence of authenticity and love. She knows what makes her heart sing and follows the path of true love. Her spirit is playful, loving, supportive, grounded, and full of light. During my recent yoga training Courtney was one of my teachers and was exactly what I needed. She truly listened to."

  • Review by Amy L. from Oakland, California, USA

    "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!"
