Experience makes the difference

Byron Yoga Centre’s and The Yoga Room part time Non-Residential Sydney Teacher Training Course is a complete experience with 6 weekends over 6 months.
The course includes training by Australia’s leading yoga training academy with some of the world’s most experienced trainers.

Established in 1988 by John Ogilvie, Byron Yoga Centre is one of the longest running yoga schools in Australia.

The lead teachers have over 20 years of knowledge and expertise each.

Judy Krupp is a senior teacher trainer and founder of The Yoga Room in St Ives, Sydney. With a career spanning over 25 years as a yoga teacher, Judy was originally trained in South Africa as an Iyengar Teacher. She now teaches a multifaceted approach, blending the science of asana practice with the science and mechanics of movement. Her astute knowledge of the body and its movement is central to the core of her teaching to both students and teachers alike. She encourages her students to move beyond their perceived limitations, while working at an individual pace with grace and core stability. Judy is known both here in Australia and internationally, and travels worldwide teaching at conferences, retreats and conducting training programs for teachers. From her studio in St Ives, Sydney, Judy specialises in teacher training programs that are therapy based and conducts numerous workshops and masterclasses. 

John Ogilvie  founder and director of the Byron Yoga Centre, has been teaching yoga for over twenty-five years and developed the Byron Yoga Centre teacher training courses. John encourages a light heartedness in our approach to yoga and to ourselves. Teaching regular classes as part of the Byron Yoga studio weekly timetable, his classes are both challenging and dynamic, and integrate the different yoga styles of Iyengar and Ashtanga, as well as the softer Sivananda and Satyananda practices of yoga and the energy principles of Aikido.

Maria Kirsten, teaches the applied anatomy and physiology component of our teacher trainings conducted in Byron Bay. Maria has been doing yoga since 1989 and began teaching in 2000 after gaining accreditation with Yogalates. Maria is passionate about making yoga accessible to as many people as possible, especially those who don’t consider themselves to be yogis. She focuses on teaching teachers how to avoid injuries and strains and how to give alternatives and props to injured students. Maria has trained with Louise Soloman at Yogalates, Peter Clifford, Libby Nelson and Simon Borg Olivier.

Kara Goodsell is a senior certified teacher who trained in dynamic Vinyasa flow-style yoga with John Ogilvie, as well as regularly attending yoga workshops by other senior teachers, including Pattabhi Jois in India. She has been teaching beginners, general and intermediate classes since 2006 at the Centre after apprenticing for 4 years with John. Kara teaches yoga asana, pranayama (breathing techniques) and dhyana (meditation) safely and joyfully, giving students the opportunity to deepen their awareness and practice with integrity and fun. She is constantly updating her skills and expanding her yoga teaching experience. Kara is part of the teacher training staff at Byron Yoga Centre.

Teaching yoga consists of more than simply the skills required to perform asanas correctly or knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Ultimately, the path to teaching yoga with awareness and understanding involves deepening your own practice.
