Part time training: an opportunity to integrate your knowledge

Byron Yoga Centre’s part time Teacher Training Course in Byron Bay is a Level 1 200-hour Teacher Training course accredited with Yoga Alliance and Fitness Australia approved for 15 CECs. 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 five residential long weekends, over a five month period, this part time training allows you to integrate your new yoga knowledge 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.
