Take your teaching to the next level… in paradise
Our unique Graduate Program for Byron Yoga Centre Teacher training graduates is run parallel with the 12-day retreat and Level 1 Teacher Trainings in Bali. The graduate program is limited to 4 trainees and is a unique opportunity to increase your teaching experience. Graduates will be provided with a Graduate Advanced Teaching Practice Certification.
Graduates assist Byron Yoga Centre trainers in both the Yoga Retreat and the Level 1 Intensive Yoga Teacher training, in demonstration of asanas, adjustments and corrections in postures. They will have the opportunity to attend retreat yoga classes and training lectures.
Held in conjunction with our yoga retreat and Level 1 Teacher Training Intensives, the 12 day graduate program provides a perfect opportunity to increase your yoga teaching experience in a relaxed and tranquil environment.
With Byron Yoga Centre’s teaching team on site, you can be assured of a rich, varied and holistic experience of yoga while at the same time enjoying the exotic surroundings that Ubud has to offer; rice fields, temples and local markets.
It’s the ideal place to adjust to the Balinese way of life and the perfect launch pad for travelling around the island on your own after the course.
As there is limited free time during the program we recommend you extend your stay so that you have time for sightseeing afterwards, if your schedule permits.
Experience makes the difference
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.
Our lead teachers have a combined teaching experience of over 50 years offering a wealth of knowledge and expertise to share with participants. John Ogilvie, the founder and director of Byron Yoga Centre, has been teaching yoga for over twenty years. He encourages a light heartedness in our approach to yoga and to ourselves.

Graduate Advanced Teaching Practice Certificate
Each day you’ll be taking part in a morning led practice with your fellow graduates to refresh and build on your teaching and leadership skills. A senior teacher will provide you with feedback and support. The main focus of the Bali Graduate Program is assisting senior teachers on the Teacher Training Course and the Retreat. This program is open to Byron Yoga Centre Level 1 or Level 2 Graduates who would be interested in being involved eventually with working on Teacher Training Courses and Retreats or just furthering their teaching experience.
