Find Yourself.

We’re situated on a breathtaking 30 acres – just 1km from Byron Bay’s town centre and local beaches. Established in 1988 by yogi legend John Ogilvie, we’re one of the longest-running and most well respected Yoga and Wellness Centres in Australia.

Our affordable Yoga Retreats are designed to allow you to slow down, rest, recharge and develop healthy habits to take home. Relax and enjoy our 20m solar heated mineral salt swimming pool rich in magnesium. Or wander through our three acres of organic gardens which provide the main source for our vegetarian menu. Our focus is on sustainability with solar panels, composting, recycling and rainwater tanks.

Our residential Yoga Teacher Trainings allow you to take the next step in your yoga and in your life. Our trainings are run by our experienced yoga teachers, and include all meals and accommodation on site so you can completely immerse yourself in learning and the beautiful surrounds. During your training you’ll teach real public classes – so you’ll be ready and confident to share yoga with the world.

Our vision has remained steadfast – to make yoga accessible to all, without exclusivity, for we believe that yoga has the power to change the world.

Virtual Tour

“You come as you were, you leave as you should be.”

Anastasia - Retreat Guest

“Byron Yoga Centre is an amazing place for you to go back to yourself and to what matters in your life. You’ll feel nourished in many ways in this beautiful place with such kind beautiful people.”

Priscilla - Retreat Guest

Over the last 5-years I have returned 3-times for retreats. The first time I went I’d never done any yoga in my life – it doesn’t matter if you are a beginner have a lifetime of practice. The teachers help us all. The entire staff from the cleaners, gardeners, cooks, teachers and resort hosts are so lovely and nurturing. Always greeting you with a smile and and open heart. If you are worn out from life and need some nurturing then Byron Yoga will give you a recharge, love and laughter and let you get to know yourself a little better.

John has aspired to create a sustainable eco village, with a focus on having as minimal carbon footprint as possible. The people who come to Byron Yoga Centre practice mindfulness and yoga, eat a healthy vegetarian diet, and are introduced to the principles of its eco village. They then go home and spread the sentiments of Byron Yoga Centre to their work colleagues, family and friends – creating a beautiful flow on effect.

Our Story

“My journey with yoga began over 45 years ago. At that time, I had reached a low point in my life, struggling with drug addiction and a deep sense of emptiness. I managed to work up the courage to check myself into The Buttery – a local residential rehab centre on the Northern Rivers. It was here that I was reintroduced to yoga. By practicing daily yoga, I managed to find peace and happiness within myself. I now want to share yoga with you, as I believe it has the power to change your life, as it did mine.” – John Ogilvie, Founder and CEO of Byron Yoga Centre.
