I completed the Blue Osa Costa Rica Yoga Teacher Training in November 2011. I can state that the course, taught exclusively by Yogi Aaron, had a strong emphasis on academics–including the scientific and philosophical foundations of hatha yoga. The reading list was comprehensive and included text reading assignments and handouts. Daily physical practice included varying types of meditation, asana and pranayama. If you are considering this training, be assured you will have challenging assignments to complete and ample opportunity for hands-on teaching to fellow students as well as guests of Blue Osa with varying levels of experience. You will also have the opportunity to teach to students with specific health concerns/challenges. I very much enjoyed being taught by Aaron for many reasons but most importantly, even though participating with other students, he taught to me as an individual–focusing specifically and working with me on exactly where I was at in my life as a student. In terms of the physical surroundings, Blue Osa is a paradise. The vision that Blue Osa has manifested in the tiny country of Costa Rica is to be deeply respected. The guest accommodations are beautiful and comfortable–allowing your body adequate rest, recovery and relaxation during the course. The staff were completely devoted to us as students and never hesitated to provide upon any request that I had. Without reserve or hesitation I endorse the Blue Osa Costa Rica Yoga Teacher Training.

Blue Osa itself was amazing – from the scarlet macaws to the beach to Marie’s great cooking. But the best part was working with Aaron and the student teachers. When I went to Blue Osa for teacher training in 2011, my intent was to teach a class or two, substitute teach and grow my practice. From these experiences I now teach more, create new practices and continue to learn and grow more than I could have imagined. I now have my own studio and continue to be more passionate about yoga every day

Aaron was a delight and I thoroughly enjoyed his quirky sense of humor and his hearty laugh. Aaron exudes an air of acceptance so when you are with him you feel you can be totally yourself and there is no need to hide. He is very knowledgeable and it is clear that he is a well-practiced yogi with a lot of insight to share. He always stood firm in his beliefs and who he was and that is something I greatly admire, his sense of security.

Through Yogi Aaron, yoga teacher training has helped me not only become a good teacher but helped me grow into my most authentic self! If you’re serious about your yoga practice, whether you want to teach or not, I highly recommend you take teacher training! It’s very transformative. You’ll thank me when you’re done!

Yogi Aaron’s Yoga Teacher Training at Blue Osa is totally amazing in every way. I loved the structure and the length of the training. Even though 28 days seems like a long time to be away from your regular life, it’s actually a perfect amount of time to really learn how to teach yoga and to embody all of the practices Aaron shares with you. I was surprised by how easy it was to wake up with the sunrise every morning. I loved starting each day with the meditation and breathing exercises. I was so grateful for all the little things that were well planned and so thoughtful during my stay. The food was fresh, healthy, varied and delicious. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. Our rooms were cleaned every day and a laundry service was provided once a week. The grounds and surrounds are magnificent and being right on the beach were such a bonus. There was one afternoon when it was raining and umbrellas were left for us so we could walk the short distance to our rooms or the dining area without getting wet. I looked at quite a few options for YTT but kept coming back to Blue Osa. Trusting this decision is one of the best things I have ever done!! Thank you Blue Osa team!
