Meet Your Teachers For This Two-Week 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Words On Meditation Yogi AaronYogi Aaron is a Master Yoga Teacher and the yoga director of Blue Osa. He has been a student of yoga since 1991 and a teacher since 1997, studying with Alan Finger, Bryan Kest, Genny Kapuler, Rod Stryker, Swami Rama and David Swenson in yoga ashrams and retreat centers around the world.

Aaron has made pilgrimages seeking to understand the Vedic tradition and Tantric path and studied closely with numerous spiritual masters during his treks throughout the Himalaya Mountains. His experience leading workshops around the world inspired him to open a retreat and cultivate an intimate yoga community in Costa Rica — and so the Blue Osa was born.

As Yogi Aaron has spent a considerable amount of time in India, he has been taught directly from the Himalayan Tradition. Aaron also has a strong background in yoga therapy and brings in therapeutic elements when appropriate.

Blue Osa welcomes 800 yogis per year and is the setting for Yogi Aaron’s fully accredited series Yoga Teacher Training Immersions from Yoga Alliance.

As a teacher, Yogi Aaron’s ultimate goal is to provide a space for people to fully realize the possibilities of their own limitless potential.

Over the years, Aaron has helped countless students and seekers use yoga to fine-tune their senses, call forth their best selves, discover their life purposes, and experience the sublime, divine flow within each of us.

Check Out what Past Students Have to Say:

  • “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.”

    Denny Los Angeles, CA
  • “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!”

    Hollis New York, NY
  • “We all learned so much from our training…I certainly did. Aaron, thanks for being an impetus for huge changes in my life. I couldn’t have had the strength without you and everyone there at Blue Osa.”

    Cory New York, NY
  • “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.”
