300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

    Do You Feel Called To Something Greater?

If you yearn to inspire, to make a difference, to lead, that kind of calling — to leadership — can be terrifying.

In our yoga circles, we don’t often specifically teach and train for leadership.

But it’s essential in your journey.

This one-month immersion training at the Blue Osa will immerse you in the specific transformational skills and yogic practices you need in order to connect with your higher purpose and offer it to your classes (should you teach), your community and the world.

We Need To Be Yoga Leaders

We need you to be great in this world.

And so we need leadership skills. We need to learn them. We need to practice them.

We need to embody these skills.

And rather than hoping our leadership skills arrive fully formed, we need to seek them out. Grow them.

But it’s essential in your journey.

In class and in your practice you had those moments: Epiphany. Stillness. Lightness. Energy. Vitality. Steadfastness. A Shift in Perception. Awakening.

Now you’re open to more.

We Cordially Invite You

300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Costa Rica

Aaron is a Master Teacher and the author of Autobiography of a Naked Yogi. 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 Yoga Retreat and Spa was born.

Blue Osa welcomes 800 yogis per year and is the setting for Yogi Aaron’s fully accredited series of One-Month Immersion Teacher Trainings. As a teacher, his 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 Others Had 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
  • 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.

    Kealia New York, NY
  • “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
  • “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!”
