Yogi-Aaron-at-Blue-Osa-With-DogsYogi Aaron is a liberator, a change initiator. He is a Master Teacher of Yoga, an International Retreat Leader, the author of ‘Autobiography of a Naked Yogi’, the founder of Blue Osa Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica, a born adventurer, and an avid animal lover.
His mission is to hold space for those curious enough to become still and discover their own unique brilliance within. His message is one of conquering fear and saying yes! to life with courage, faith and grace. His intention is to inspire all of us to realize our inner strength and cultivate indomitable will, so we’re able to reveal our best self and shine brightly.
Instilled with steely determination and love for the great outdoors he strove to understand himself in untamed landscapes. The wilds of northern Canada, the underwater wonderland of the Caribbean and the Holy Himalayas all provided a rich playground for his unraveling. Lost in nature, he found his true nature.
It was Aaron’s natural inquisitiveness and the influence of his new-age mother that delivered him to yoga at just 18. It sparked a flame that he could not quell. He made pilgrimages to ashrams and retreat centers in order to understand the Vedic tradition and Tantric path.
His personal journey to free his own identity provided fertile ground for healing and growth. It honed a philosophy and attitude to life that was to become the cornerstone of his teachings itself.
He began instructing students in yoga asana, pranayama and philosophy in 1997. By 2001 Yogi Aaron notoriously exploded onto the New York yoga scene and became an overnight sensation. By creating a haven for people to come, practice and be themselves he became a prominent figure in the yoga community. That recognition leads him to start leading workshops and retreats internationally.
When Yogi Aaron isn’t teaching or studying he can be found making homemade jam for his students or surfing with his dogs in Costa Rica.
