New to meditation or looking to go deeper with your dhyana practice? Join Swami Pujan and John Ogilvie as they lead this immersion into consciousness in beautiful Byron Bay. 

This is so much more than a yoga immersion or retreat. For five days, you will be guided and supported by meditation teacher Swami Pujan and other Byron Yoga Centres Senior Meditation Instructors to develop your personal practice and teach you to teach others various forms of meditation.  

On this immersion, you will:

  • learn various different meditation techniques
  • delve into the science behind meditation and the philosophy that supports it
  • recognise the obstacles in meditation practice
  • learn how to establish a daily meditation practice
  • discover the ways to bring meditation into the yoga class, the workplace or other environments. 

This retreat is suitable for beginners and experienced yogis alike, and is ideal for yoga teacher training graduates as the hours you spend in meditation practice will count towards your continued learning as required by the different yoga associations.

Our teacher training graduates and past retreat guests will be familiar with Swami Pujan's teachings on yoga philosophy and meditation. His easy going, accessible teaching style is entertaining as it is informative.
