I did my Level 1 in Thailand a few years ago and never felt fully confident in teaching. I’m so glad I chose Byron Yoga Centre for my Level 2. The teachers were all outstanding and the group so supportive. With the conversion course and the pre-course prep work I felt fully ready to dive into the residential course and the real-life teaching practice gave me that confidence I needed to expand my yoga teaching career
