Only I had the guidance of Yogi Aaron and the support of a loving community. Even if someone doesn't want a certification, having two weeks for introspection, to learn about your body, creating a fantastic community of people, and developing an excellent relationship with Yogi Aaron, this would be an uplifting experience for anyone.”

Why study with Yogi Aaron? Who is my teacher?

This teacher training is a rare opportunity to study with Yogi Aaron online.

At Blue Osa, we have created one of the most transformative life-changing yoga teacher trainings. And we are bringing it into your home with the Online Yoga Teacher Training experience.

And teacher, Yogi Aaron is offering them to you.

Who is Yogi Aaron?

A student of yoga for 30 years, he is not the yoga director of Blue Osa. He has been 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 several pilgrimages to the Himalayas seeking to understand the Vedic tradition and Tantric path and studied closely with numerous spiritual masters during his treks throughout these majestic 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. He is the creator of Applied Yoga Anatomy.

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.

I’m meditating every day and now my husband is too! Thank you Aaron. You’re changing the world and it needs you now. 😉😘
~ sandy F

I would recommend Yogi Aaron’s teacher trainings to anyone. Even if you don’t intend to teach, what you will learn from the trainings will open your eyes to new possibilities and understanding and to loving yourself more.
~ Mic

Aaron incorporated all aspects of yoga into this training, so if you’re looking for more out of your yoga journey, this is the place for you.
~ Katie M

Yogi Aaron at last is an incredible host and teacher. He leads with love and makes all people feel welcome in his sacred home. He is insightful and well-prepared to deliver an experience that is truly life-changing.
~ Chris R

Hello there my friend! I was thinking of you these past few weeks, during which I’ve been living in the Nepalese mountains.
I’m grateful for having been drawn to some wildly powerful places that helped me to internalize many lessons, and bring clarity to some of the challenges I was working through during my time spent at Blue Osa. I wanted to let you know I’ve felt a particular appreciation for your capacity as a space-holder and witness, and find it admirable how you remained seemingly un-phased by what could easily be triggering actions on the part of others (e.g. myself).

~ Varun

I appreciate and have so much love for you, the space you’ve created, and the knowledge you have shared. Life is all about relationships and the encounters you have with people, and the encounter and time spent with you, my classmates, staff, and locals has contributed to who I am today and will carry with me for the rest of my life. May our paths will cross again one day.
~ Cassie O

This experience surprised me in so many positive ways.

The two weeks for me were unbelievable introspective.It was like a two-week therapy session with myself. Only I had the guidance of Yogi Aaron and the support of a loving community.

The self-paced content has been awesome. Being able to rewind and pause the videos allows me to better understand the content and gives me time to reflect. I like seeing the length of time required to watch the videos in each section so that I can set goals and realistically plan my day. The worksheets and quizzes are just the right length in my opinion, they are engaging without feeling like ‘homework.’ Being able to retake the quizzes is nice, because I can go back to previous lessons and reinforce my understanding if I missed something. And I like listening to your anecdotes and examples for each topic (huge Sex and the City fan over here!!).

Even if someone doesn’t want a certification, having two weeks for introspection, to learn about your body, creating a fantastic community of people, and developing an excellent relationship with Yogi Aaron, this would be an uplifting experience for anyone.
~ Kali

What style(s) of yoga will we be covering?

Yogi Aaron teaches a style of yoga that is authentic and passed down through the Himalayan lineage and tradition.

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. He is the creator of Applied Yoga Anatomy.

While hatha yoga is at the core of what we do, we differentiate ourselves by offering a holistic approach to yoga that emphasizes function over form. Yoga should be tailored to the individual, and that a good yoga teacher knows how to create unique practices that meet unique needs.

The Blue Osa YTT methodology has been influenced by multiple traditions, including Vinyasa, Iyengar and Anusara yoga.

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

Most importantly, Yogi Aaron teaches Applied Yoga Anatomy, a blend of muscle activation techniques and yoga therapy as taught in in the vinyasa yoga tradition. You will not find this training anywhere else and is only available through the Blue Osa Yoga Teacher Trainings.

Does this program meet Yoga Alliance's international certification standards?

You will have met the qualifications for becoming a 200-hr RYT and 300-hr RYT respectively upon program completion of Blue Osa’s One-Month Immersion Yoga Teacher Training or 14-day Yoga Teacher Training programs. You may choose to submit yourself for recognition if you wish.

As a national credentialing organization for the yoga community, Yoga Alliance® provides a set of educational Standards for yoga schools that specify hours or study in certain educational categories.

Yoga Alliance® is recognized around the world as the authority in setting these yoga standards and your certificate will enable you to be able to teach anywhere it is required.

Yoga Alliance certification

What is the difference between the 200, 300 and 500 hour programs?

Blue Osa is a recognized yoga school by Yoga Alliance.

The 200-hour yoga teacher training by Blue Osa is a foundational training that is recognized baby Yoga Alliance. Once you have completed your 200-hour yoga teacher training, you will be a certified yoga teacher and can teach anywhere in the world. The goal of the 200-hour yoga teacher training is to give essentially give you the skills and knowledge to teach a yoga class safely.

Yoga Alliance certification

The 300-hour yoga teacher training by Blue Osa is an advanced yoga teacher training for those who have previously completed a 200-hour certification with Blue Osa or another school. The 300-hour gives you the opportunity to dive deeper into yoga, giving you knowledge of the more sublime practice of yoga, and the skills to develop you as a leader.

Any yoga instructor who wants to become a yoga trainer to new yoga teachers must have completed the 300-hour, and thereby be certified as a 500-RYT.

The 500-hour yoga teacher training means that you have completed your 200-hour + 300-Hour certification course, OR have completed a 500-hour certification course. Because very few yoga schools offer a straight-up 500-hour program and people don’t have the time to do both back to back, most people do the 200-hour and then 300-hour at separate times.

For more information on the differences, please read this article.

 

I have already completed my 200 hour / 300 hour / 500 hour. Why should I consider one of your immersions?

Very few people ever take the opportunity to fully immerse in a yoga practice. Through experience, Yogi Aaron has seen that a concentrated, intensive experience like this offers profound rewards. You accelerate the pace of your learnings and gain both spiritual insight and spiritual momentum.

An immersion like this, be it 14 days or 28 days, takes you on a more profound journey within yourself.

Aaron is a skilled practitioner and teacher who has mastered the art of guiding students on the journey inward and each of these immersion trainings offers a fresh and often new glimpse into the deeper dimensions of yoga.

If you had a YTT experience in the past, it is doubtful you have ever had a yoga experience this profound. Why do we know this? Because any one who has has taken a YTT before and then taken ours has told us.

These teacher training immersions takes you on a journey of deep yogic practice to cultivate a direct experience of these teachings. We see too many teachers teaching methods in the world who do not have this experience and giving practices the have no direct knowledge of.

The Blue Osa Yoga Teacher Training will not only deepen your meaning and experience of yoga, but will give you the opportunity to practice for one month practices you have only ever heard about but never had the time or freedom to do.

I have already taken the Blue Osa Teacher Training. Should I / Can I take it again?

Absolutely! If you feel called to do this immersion again, do come back. You will be thrilled with how much more you are able to learn and receive when you return to audit an immersion. Even better: we offer a discount to those who wish to repeat a program. Please contact Aaron for more information.

When are the book reports and assignments due?

To award you the Yoga Teacher Certification, you must complete the book reports.

The book reports are due 3 months after the end of the Yoga Teacher Training Immersion. For example, if the completion of the Immersion is November 16, then the book reports will be due the following February 16.

Besides the 3 months following the yoga teacher training, we give you plenty of time during the immersion.

You may also complete the book reports before the beginning of the Immersion.

Once registered, you may begin working on your assignments. We give you instructions for the book reports ONCE you have registered.

I do not want to teach yoga. Why should I consider the Yoga Teacher Training?

Each of our yoga students each come with unique goals. Some want to get their yoga certificate to teach yoga. Others want to answer deep and meaningful questions about their life. And still, others want to live a more meaningful life through yoga.

Yogi Aaron’s approach to teaching yoga teachers is based on the principle that wisdom and knowledge are acquired through direct experience.

This Yoga Teacher Training with Yogi Aaron will give you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in yoga for 2 – 4 weeks, allowing you to use yoga to ask and answer profound questions and discover what yoga can mean in your life.

We warmly welcome students of any and all backgrounds of race, orientation, spiritual tradition or practice. Yoga welcomes all people. The ONLY commitment required is that you are willing to show up and fully participate.

Why is this immersion so affordable?

We strive to make these immersions available to as many students and seekers as possible because it’s our experience that immersions are so life-changing and powerful.

  3. What are your goals once you leave the immersion?

Will this program cover the "business" aspects of becoming a yoga teacher?

Yes, we will spend some time discussing the logistics of developing your own business as a yoga teacher.

Subjects to be discussed include how to find your first customers, how much to charge, where to teach, and best practices for growing your business.

As a former NYC yoga studio owner and as current co-owner of Blue Osa Yoga Retreat & Spa, Aaron has a wealth of knowledge available in this area, and will kindly field questions.

I have an injury and/or need to adjust my practice. Will I hold the class back?

NO, you will NOT hold the class back. We will ALWAYS encourage you to only do what you are comfortable doing and to practice within the limitations of your own body.

Yoga is a personal practice. The first “value” we practice in yoga is non-harming.

Yogi Aaron’s background is in yoga therapy and the creator of Applied Anatomy. Therefore he teaches all of his classes to be therapeutic and healing. He is also very skillful at helping those with less mobile bodies to adjust their practice.

I don't have a strong yoga practice. Can I still participate in this program?

Absolutely! Even if you are relatively new to yoga, our yoga teacher training immersions are an excellent way to learn the art of yoga and cultivate a strong foundation for your life-long practice.

One of the strengths of our approach to yoga is how adaptable it is to the student. No matter where you are, there is a practice for you.

And frankly, some of the best teachers are the ones who can’t contort their bodies into pretzel shapes. Their limitations end up being an asset to their students.

I don't want to teach yoga. Why should I consider this Yoga Teacher Training Immersion?

Each of our yoga students each come with unique goals. Some want to get their yoga certificate to teach yoga. Others want to answer deep and meaningful questions about their life. And still, others want to live a more meaningful life through yoga.

Yoga teachers acquire real knowledge through direct experience. For this reason, this YTT will take you on the path of acquiring direct experience.

An Immersion allows you the time to steep into a yoga practice. You will receive answers to profound life questions and discover what yoga can mean in your life.

We welcome students of any and all backgrounds of race, orientation, spiritual tradition, or practice. Yoga welcomes all people. The ONLY commitment required is that you are willing to show up and fully participate.

Are scholarships and work exchanges offered in this immersion?

Blue Osa is committed to creating access to underserved populations.

People within these populations need to have skilled helpers and healers representing, and actively serving these groups.

  • • Equity Scholarships are awarded to:
  • • People of Color (any identity or ethnicity)
  • • People who identify as LGBTQAI+
  • • People with Disabilities

Each Blue Osa Online Yoga Teacher Training Program includes two 50% Equity Scholarships.

These are available for applicants who belong to one of the groups above.

You might be wondering why two scholarships at 50%? Why not one full-ride scholarship instead?

Research shows that humans value what we invest something monetary into. We show up to get our money’s worth. This investment of attention yields the best results –and we want you to succeed! Karina is also committed to leading by example. By charging something for her time and energy, she teaches us to value our own, and know it’s okay to be paid for our investments and labor. Most people don’t want a hand out anyway. They genuinely want to contribute something in exchange. So we think 50% give and 50% receive makes it an equitable partnership.

To apply for a scholarship, please complete this form at least ten days before the start of any program.
