14 Reasons Why a 14-Day Yoga Teacher Training Immersion Is The Perfect 200-Hour Yoga Certification For You

A 14-day Yoga Teacher Training is an excellent option for many people.

If you are short on time, have a strict budget, or merely wanting to surround yourself with a supportive group of like-minded people, a 14-day YTT may be the best match for you.

Throughout the years, we have been conducting 28-day yoga teacher trainings. The #1 reason why people couldn’t take it was because of time. Many people could not take time away from work for more than 2-weeks. The 14-day intensive offers a complete immersion into yoga in a time frame that is more manageable.

#11: YOUR MEDITATION PRACTICE WILL FLOURISH

If you’re considering a yoga teacher training then surely you’d also like to develop or deepen your meditation practice as well. At Blue Osa, we take our meditation practice seriously. One of the ways we teach you how to develop a meditation routine is by observing silence until 7:30 am every single day. During this magical time we teach a daily meditation practice that you will learn as part of your yoga teacher training.
