Learn from yoga masters

Both John and Judy have been teaching yoga for 30 years, and are renowned in Australia and internationally as teachers and teacher trainers. 

Judy’s reputation as a yoga teacher has been acknowledged both here and internationally. With a full-time career as a yoga teacher and teacher trainer, spanning more than 30 years, Judy originally completed her Iyengar training in South Africa. She now teaches a multi-faceted approach, blending the art 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. 

John has been teaching yoga for over 25 years, and is the Founder and Director of Byron Yoga Center. Together with Judy, he will guide immersion students to continue their yoga learning with a focus on the universal principles of posture sequencing, alignment, adjustments and corrections, as well as continued exploration of the other 7 limbs of yoga.

Byron Yoga Centre retreats are all about meeting your individual needs, so we encourage you to fill your days with as many or as little activities as you like. Combine your yoga immersion with personal time to rest, reflect and explore.

Reconnect with nature on a walk through the lush rainforest that leads to the famous Byron Bay lighthouse. Share your coastal walk with the local wildlife, including wallabies, dolphins, whales and a number of birds. Or simply relax at our peaceful retreat centre, perhaps enjoying our heated, 20m mineral salt water pool. 

There are a host of activities to indulge in with other retreat members, or by yourself. It’s a lovely walk or short cycle to Byron's stunning beaches where you can take time out to swim, sunbathe or watch the sand artist create his giant swirls and peace signs. You can go under the water and scuba dive around Julian Rocks to look for turtles, cuttlefish, white spotted eagle rays and sharks, or watch the water at dusk while dancing to the local drummers; the beats reverberate right through your chest! The town also boasts great cafes, clothes shops, trinkets, jewelry and if you’re lucky you may see the local llama being led around town by his eccentric keeper.
