Yogi Aaron has been guiding students for over 30 years to realize their inner strength and cultivate indomitable will so they can shine bright and say yes to their truest self. He created Applied Yoga Anatomy + Muscle Activation™ to effectively address the chronic pain issues so many of his students came to class with. This revolutionary way to practice yoga focuses on activating and engaging muscles rather than stretching them — and it isn’t being taught by anyone else! This yoga and movement methodology reduces pain and risk of injury while increasing range of motion, muscle strength, stability, and alignment. His book, Autobiography of a Naked Yogi, chronicles how his life spent largely outdoors—in the wilds of Northern Canada, to the underwater wonderland of the Caribbean, and throughout the untamed Himalayas—presented the challenges that shaped a timid mother’s boy into a confident yogi and ambassador for self transformation. Through humorous and poignant life stories – attending an all-male boarding school, coming out as a gay man, building a successful yoga career – Yogi Aaron shares lessons in living with empowerment and authenticity. Today, Yogi Aaron shares his humorous yet vastly knowledgeable approach to yoga at Blue Osa Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica where he leads Yoga Teacher Training Programs and Applied Yoga Anatomy + Muscle Activation™ retreats.
