Seva = Service
When you attend GypSea Yoga School, a portion of your tuition funds a local nonprofit Montessori school.
We believe small actions with big intentions yield profound results.
Our students and staff regularly participate in service projects throughout the community of Uvita!
During your training you will have the opportunity to participate in Seva, or selfless action, in an effort to connect with the community and give back. Different experiences include projects at local schools, spending time reading and playing with the children, and of course cleaning up the local beaches!
Playing, creating, and moving with children is the perfect way to awaken your inner child!

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.
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.
