About GypSea Yoga School

Why GypSea?

Because we are all in a constant stage of change, a constant state of becoming, and the sea is where we find connection and deep bliss.

We honor yoga as a path through which everyone can become their most divine selves. Embarking on this journey means a quest for self-knowledge, love, and freedom. We are committed to raising the collective consciousness through meditation, breath, movement and service. Our heart-centered approach donates a portion of all profits to Kids' Foundation for Uniting Nations.

Gypsea Yoga 200 hr YTT was an incredible experience. I really recommend Gypsea Yoga from the bottom of my heart. You come out learning so much more than just how to become a yoga teacher. It was a life changing experience for me, and some of the lessons I learnt are some of the most valuable ones.


If you are looking for some awesome, knowledgeable people to work with, these are the guys I highly recommend. Their friendliness and result-driven approach is what I love about them.


What a truly life changing experience. The course itself was a journey into self discovery, self love and pushing limits. I highly recommend this class for anyone looking to deepen their own practice or wanting to venture into the teaching world.


Courtney Fletcher

Founder, Lead Facilitator

Hi, I’m Courtney, an ex-gymnast, spinally fused, 18-year yogi, Ashtangi, trained in India, with a gypSEA soul whose practice draws from hatha, kundalini and vinyasa. My heart-centered approach evokes an understanding of interconnectedness through a focus on self-love, nature and seva (service). The intention being for my students to discover the light within that ignites their path to inner peace, the connection which opens the heart to universal love.

After 10 years as a competitive gymnast, lower back surgery brought my athletic ability to a halt. Looking for a way to ease the pain and regain strength and flexibility, I discovered yoga and immediately fell in love with the practice, quickly learning its transformational power over the mind and path to freedom. Embarking on this journey meant a lifelong quest for self-knowledge, love, and humility. In 2010 I volunteered in India and earned my yoga teaching certification. My time in India inspired me to establish my own NGO, Kids’ Foundation for Uniting Nations which connects and inspires kids around the world to initiate positive change through service.

Vanessa Voto

Lead Facilitator

After obtaining her certification through Gypsea Yoga School Vanessa moved on to teach yoga classes, run workshops & now facilitates through the same yoga school she learned through! Yoga couldn't have come at a better point. She chose this path because noticed she was feeling drained, tired and mentally and emotionally blocked at the young age of 15. Her background was heavily dance & weight-lifting at the time & yoga was the perfect mediator of those two extreme practices.

From postures to internal focus, she found herself little by little. Being so young, this was a terrifying yet amazing experience. After finding herself drawn back to the practice of yoga & meditation, she soon realized that she needed to share the way this practice made her feel with others. Teaching yoga was it. Vanessa primarily teaches Vinyasa, Hatha & Buti yoga but is always learning & evolving. Setting the vibe, inclusivity & fluid movement is her jam. Her primary goal is to aid in moving the outsides to move the insides. To face the things that are no longer serving & replacing those with what does. To go deep, to reflect hard. To find truth. To find SOMETHING within that is just waiting to be unleashed. Something that makes each person true to who they are & brings them to their own internal power & liberation.

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Our study focus is centered around the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and Light on Yoga by BKS Iyengar. We will discuss each sutra thoroughly, breakdown common hatha and vinyasa asanas and work through sequencing and language for teaching classes. You will learn and practice many traditional pranayama and meditation techniques daily, immersed in the serenity of natural forests.
