With a cow to my right edging in on my share of the road, in front of my path appeared to be a treacherous part of the road, and I had no choice but to forge on. I’m white-knuckling the steering wheel, thinking to myself this is really how I go out, right here on this dirt road, me and this Costa Rican cow. Behind me was a road, if you could really call it that, that was not drivable in the reverse. In front of me were huge divots in the clay road that I was pretty sure were going to take out me and my vehicle in the process. I was sure I was not going to make it out! Stuck, miles from any place with cell service I thought I had lost all hope. I steer around the bend in the road and right in front of my path is a 25-foot wide river. Standing directly in front of my modest Suzu Grand Vitara rental I did what any sane person would do...I had a proper meltdown…you know the one that only lasts a few minutes leaving you feeling desperate, alone, and full of shame?
How could I have done this to myself? I knew I had taken the wrong road and I kept going anyway, but at some point, during the route, it became overwhelmingly clear that I couldn’t turn around and go back. I had to face the scary unknown and forge on. I looked around to see if there was anybody that could help, but no one, not even a cow. I looked behind me again to make absolutely sure there was no one else around. So I took off my shoes and decided to wade across the river. To my absolute delight and to my wondrous relief the river was only up a little over my ankle. I thought to myself, this little 4x4 SUV can definitely make it through this. So I grabbed my shoes, got in the car, and made sure the four-wheel drive was engaged. Then I was off, treading through the river, picking up a little speed to make sure I made it safely through and onto the bank. YES, I did it and I couldn’t believe it!!! I celebrated with a loud scream, and right around the corner was my destination. I had made it!
Let’s skip the dramatic entrance into Costa Rica and glide your way into the amazing location we’ve picked for our upcoming CSY RYT200 Yoga Teacher Training... If you’re like me, somewhere along the way you stopped connecting to nature, you feel disconnected and you wonder if there's something more.

The CSY RYT200 Yoga Teacher Training retreat is an opportunity to do just that. To connect with a community of individuals who are on the same spiritual path. To be recharged by the breathtaking surroundings, while consciously unplugging from modern societal burnout.

To be prepared to enter the workforce and offer classes that are beyond your average cookie cutter vinyasa classes.
CSY RYT200 Yoga Teacher Training Retreat is designed as an immersive and transformational inner discovery for students looking to expand their spiritual awareness and deepen the understanding of their Inner Self.

"I attended a 7 day yoga retreat in Mexico lead by Kerry Tice in January. I have attended many yoga retreats world wide, and this was definitely one of the best, most organized. yoga retreats ever! Kerry was very Punctual, organized and easy to communicate with. I really enjoyed his beautiful chantings and was introduced to more spiritual aspect of yoga! I really enjoyed the energy CircuSoul Yoga shared with the class. Their energies were so perfectly aligned and the students received physical, emotional, and spiritual guidance! Wise like little Buddhas, with complementary energies, they took care of our minds, bodies, and souls! I highly recommend this yoga retreat to anyone who is ready for reset, tranquillity and transformation in paradise! I am definitely going back. Thank You Kerry! Well done."
"Took my first yoga retreat to Mexico with CircuSoul, and it exceeded my expectations. Kerry was very organized, and had a thematic yoga theme/message, and target area for every class. Kerry is personable, and overall such a loving being. If there were things the group members wanted to do, it was taken into account to ensure everyone was happy. I was not sure about sharing a room with someone I have never met, but Kerry did an excellent job pairing me up with another woman my age. It was a great experience and I look forward to going on future retreats with CircuSoul. Forever grateful for the yoga tribe that came together on June 11-18, 2022!"
