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.

FAQs About 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Meet Your Instructor, Yogi Aaron and the styles of yoga he teaches

Yogi Aaron is the owner, operator, and lead yoga facilitator at Blue Osa. During his 30 years of study, Yogi Aaron has developed an intrinsic understanding of yogic philosophy, anatomy, and the subtle body. He has studied under yogic masters such as Alan Finger, Bryan Kest, Genny Kapuler, Rod Stryker, Swami Rama, and David Swenson, among others.

Throughout his journey, Aaron has made several pilgrimages to the Himalayas, where he sought a deeper understanding of the Vedic tradition and Tantric pathways. These experiences blessed him with the opportunity to mentor under several spiritual masters and inspired him to create a yogic community in the lush Costa Rican jungle. Creator of Applied Yoga Anatomy + Muscle Activation™ Yogi Aaron brings three decades worth of study, mentorship, and experience into his teachings, with a strong emphasis on yoga therapy and alignment.

Yogi Aaron’s sense of humor, contagious laugh, courageous and adventurous spirit, and his own healing journey of overcoming pain and discovering and living his true life’s purpose makes him a stand-out and favored leading yoga teacher today.

Styles Of Yoga

Yogi Aaron’s style of yoga and the YTT methodology has been influenced by the Himalayan Tradition of Yoga, which combines the wisdom of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and teachings passed down from a long history of yoga masters. We include a number of lineages such as Hatha, Iyengar, Vinyasa, and Kundalini.

Our holistic approach to teaching embodies the belief of “Function Over Form.”

Yoga is for everybody and we have created a teacher training that focuses on the individual. We provide you with the tools to confidently teach both private and group classes.

With the inclusion of Applied Yoga Anatomy and Muscle Activation™, you will have a signature experience focusing on muscle activation techniques and yoga therapy to benefit you and your future students.

Do I get the bonus AYAMA™ certification? (Applied Yoga Anatomy + Muscle Activation™)

In addition to the ancient and authentic yogic teachings that you receive and experience during Blue Osa’s Yoga Teacher Training, you will also learn the exclusive Applied Yoga Anatomy + Muscle Activation™ (AYAMA™) methodology.

AYAMA™ was created by Blue Osa’s founder and master yoga teacher, Yogi Aaron. AYAMA™ is not only a revolutionary way to practice yoga but to embody and deeply understand anatomy while alleviating pain in the body.

This EXPERIENTIAL and TRANSFORMATIVE form of yoga anatomy training will come ALIVE in your body. And! this HEALING technique will teach you how to get rid of pain!

You can’t learn AYAMA™ anywhere else.

AYAMA™ teaches you how to guide yoga classes safely, ensuring you do not injure your students or cause, aggravate, or exacerbate any pain they may have.

These immersions include:

It has been this philosophy that has inspired Aaron to offer such affordable pricing, and it continues to drive him to share his wisdom with his students.
