3. Save the Sea Turtles, they need our help!
Teaching yoga is all about helping others. Extend this generosity to some small creatures who need your help; sea turtles. We have joined forces with the Osa Conservation who have created conservation programs to monitor nesting activity, predation rates and hatchling success of endangered species of turtles.
You can decide to join either the morning or the night patrol. In the morning you will record tracks, relocate nests, and bring eggs to the hatchery. Important stuff!
If you are more of a night owl, you will watch patiently as the turtles come out of the ocean to lay their eggs. Where you will measure and mark the eggs, and perform a health assessment of the turtles.
Whichever patrol you decide to join, know that you are doing your bit to protect the Osa Peninsula’s sea turtles from extinction!
4. Ride the Waves, Learn to Surf!
Life is all about riding its ebbs and flows, and what better way to embody this than to learn how to surf!!
Yoga and surfing are a perfect combo, and we know some great places to learn to surf! The Osa Peninsula has some of the best places to discover the joys of surfing. Pan Dulce Beach in Matapalo is the ideal place; it has a long ride, and the surf is gentle. Offering you a perfect opportunity to stand up and finally ride that wave!
With so many surf instructors to choose from, it is hard to know where to go. Let us take care of that for you! All that’s left for you to do is don your swim gear and prepare for some serious sea fun!
5. Hike Your Way to Self-Discovery!
Yoga teaching training requires a lot of internal inquiry and processing. At Blue Osa Travels, we find hiking to be one of the best ways to explore not only the local land and culture, but also ourselves. Hiking promotes that feel-good factor and provides the space we need to have a good self-discovery session!
Let us arrange a blissful hike for you to unearth the magic of the Osa Peninsula! We have many hikes for you to choose from, but one of our favourites is the Matapalo hike with it’s wildlife and waterfalls.
The Matapalo hike is perfect if you don’t have time to visit the Corcovado National Park as it has many of the same plants and animals that you would see there. On this hike, you will stroll through one of the most breath-taking locations on the Osa Peninsula, Cape Matapalo. You will spot monkeys, Scarlet Macaws, Toucans plus much more local wildlife. After the hike, we can arrange for you to relax and cool off on one of the picturesque beaches of Matapalo.
That’s it, our definitive guide on what do after YTT! Choose one or do them all. At Blue Osa Travels we have it covered for you. So sit back, explore our site, drop us an email, and let us arrange the most memorable ending to your time in Costa Rica! Pura Vida!
