Byron Yoga Centre’s 2022 Graduate Immersion is an invitation to all our past trainees to return to Byron Yoga Retreat Centre for 5 days of yoga classes, workshops and special sessions with an All-Star line up of teachers.

Priced at significantly less that the cost of a 5 Day Retreat, it is a chance for our graduates to come together and re-connect to the source of their yoga training. This is an opportunity to deepen your practice of yoga, meditation and pranayama and to expand your knowledge and further your teaching skills. It’s open to both those that are teaching and those who consider themselves to be practitioners. The sessions will be a vibrant mix of advanced asana, meditation and pranayama classes classes and special workshops with Byron Yoga Centre’s most senior teachers – the All-Stars team!

Deepen Your Practicejohn-byron-yoga-anjali-mudra and Further Your Skills

Our All-Star team features teachers such as John Ogilvie, Michael Nazar, Marita Dortins and Bec Isaacs.

The program is a retreat style schedule so you can choose to attend as little or as much as you like. Unlike a teacher training there is no assessments or assignments and there is plenty of time for you to enjoy the heated pool and head to the beach or into town.

We will offer early morning asana classes, a sunrise lighthouse walk and beach meditation. Between your delicious breakfast and lunch you can participate in sessions to explore all areas of Purna Yoga: asana, pranayama, meditation and philosophy.

The afternoon workshops will focus on widening your knowledge with discussions on areas such as anatomy, the vagus nerve and energetics plus yoga for mental health and more. There will also be sessions specifically to develop teaching skills (optional for non-teachers) such as business skills and advanced sequencing. All sessions will be experiential with opportunity for discussion and sharing.

After the 4pm Yin or Restorative yoga class it’s time for the highlight of the day – the tasty dinner prepared with fresh ingredients from the Byron Yoga Centre organic gardens! Then on some nights we will schedule a 7pm evening sessions, offering a relaxing yoga nidra, a film night and a kirtan.
