During this training, you will be staying in Blue Osa Beach Resort & Spa with the options of a private room, shared double room, or shared triple room. Blue Osa Beach Resort & Spa is the perfect place to rejuvenate and retreat. From the friendly smiles of the staff who know your name to the way the bread is baked from scratch daily, everything is done mindfully with love.

Each of the rooms and bungalows is uniquely designed to deliver on comfort, convenience, and relaxation. Whether it is heightened ocean views, a serene garden setting, or a spacious beachfront bungalow, at Blue Osa, you will find purpose-built, jungle-chic rooms that create the ideal setting for a tranquil, restorative yoga teacher training.

With 12 rooms and a capacity for 32 guests, this intimate beachfront eco-resort offers the ultimate sanctuary if you’re seeking solace from the hectic world. Only 50 meters away from the waves, you can see the private beach while practicing yoga from the elegantly designed second-floor yoga studio. Blue Osa does not have air conditioning.

It is a low impact, beachfront eco-hotel, and they work rigorously to reduce the carbon footprint and the impact on the surrounding environment. Thus, each of the room is equipped with a ceiling fan and the architectural design of Blue Osa allows a constant flow of air through screen walls, creating a fresh and breezy environment.

So while it may come as a shock to some that Blue Osa does not have air conditioning, Blue Osa has found that the vast majority of the guests are always quite comfortable. There is also no television and hairdryer due to the fact that Blue Osa is operated by solar power. On-site, there is a chemical-free lap pool with a solar-powered filtration system for an afternoon swim.

An eco-friendly copper-silver ionizing system is used so that algae and other bacteria cannot live in the water. At one end of the pool sits the pool pavilion with comfortable lounge sofas and chairs, perfect for a casual meeting or reading a great book. At the other end of the pool, sits a beautiful Indian style temple with a fire kunda.

This space is perfect for a private yoga practice or meditation. There is also an organic garden that provides the kitchen with fresh vegetables and herbs. On the property, there are mango, guanabana, starfruit, citrus, banana, coconut, avocado, papaya trees, and a pineapple patch. Additionally, Blue Osa Beach Resort & Spa will grow their own spinach, yucca, and other root vegetables.

Location

This training will take place in Puerto Jiménez, Costa Rica. Nestled off-the-beaten-path in the virgin Costa Rican rainforest of the Southern Osa Peninsula, guests have an endless selection of quiet places to meditate and reflect. Blue Osa is located about eight miles or 11 kilometers south of Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, which National Geographic Magazine labeled as “the most biologically intense place on earth.”

Blue Osa is nearest to the border of the world-renowned Corcovado National Park and on the warm shores of the Golfo Dulce. While visiting the tropical eco-resort, you are likely to spot some of Costa Rica’s shyest and most endangered rainforest inhabitants, including the red-backed squirrel monkey, scarlet macaws, harpy eagles, and maybe even a jaguar. Costa Rica is located on the Central American isthmus, it borders Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south.

The Caribbean Sea is to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Costa Rica is slightly north of the equator, therefore, the climate is tropical year round. Costa Rica was and continues to be a pioneer country in eco-tourism, drawing visitors to the extensive national parks and protected areas across the country.
