Part time training: an opportunity to integrate your knowledge

Byron Yoga Centre’s 5 month Teacher Training Course in Byron Bay is a Level One 200 hour Teacher Training course accredited with Yoga Alliance and Fitness Australia approved for 15 CEC's. It is designed to deliver our Purna Yoga holistic approach to training that encompasses not just learning about the asanas (postures) but also the many other aspects of yoga: pranayama (breathing practices), meditation, and yogic philosophy.

Conducted over 5 residential long weekends, over a five month period, this part time training allows you to take the time to integrate the knowledge you are learning in the face-to-face sessions into your daily life, in between the weekend residential training sessions.  It’s an ideal flexible option for those with busy lives, and other family and/or work commitments.

The five residential weekends held at our training centre in beautiful Byron Bay comprise Part A of this course.  Part B is completed by correspondence, in your own time.
