Blue Osa - my home for four weeks
I spent a lot of time researching where I wanted to complete my Yoga Teacher Training (YTT), I knew I wanted go complete it in Costa Rica - but the question was where?
When Chris and I visited Costa Rica in April, we met someone who had completed their YTT the previous year at Blue Osa and spoke very highly of it. When researching I was drawn to Blue Osa's offering and kept going back to the website, I finally took the plunge and booked my place.
One of the large bonuses of Blue Osa, was the setting. One side a beach front property and the jungle on the other - what more could you want from your new home. Another bonus was the area, Chris and I didn't visit the Osa Peninsula on our trip - which meant it was a good opportunity to explore a part of the country I loved.
The photos I had seen on the internet really didn't do Blue Osa justice, as soon as I arrived I fell in love - I had arrived in paradise.
I signed up to share a room - which was a little scary as I hadn't shared a room with someone I didn't know since school. But I was happy to embrace this, as I had read a number of posts of people who had gone through the same experience and made some friends for life.
My room was a garden room (it lived up to it's name - more on that a little later) and it was surrounded by beautiful flowers that attracted Hummingbirds.
The flowers lead to the outside of our room.
The room was very spacious and big enough for the two of us to live for a month.
Outside of my room were some bells - that sounded like a wind chime when they rang. Bells played a big part at Blue Osa, they rang to signal the start of class and also when food was ready, this was three times a day. I have been home a few weeks now and I think it will take a while for the sound of bells to stop making me think of food.
