Prerequisite Level 1 200 hour RYT course accredited by Yoga Alliance.
Part A pre-course preparation
Includes online study of Level 2 content plus revision with Byron Yoga Centre’s Level 1 manual (asana and teaching methodology, pranayama, philosophy, applied anatomy etc). Also practicing Byron Yoga Centre Level 1 and Level 2 asana with John Ogilvie’s DVDs and some Skype sessions with our trainers. It is recommended you allow 4-6 weeks to complete this Part A.
Part B the first 12 days of the residential intensive (see Course Content below)
Part C the additional 8 day residential intensive includes practical teaching of public classes and supported online self study. Plus there are additional learning sessions such as advanced sequencing, philosophy, meditation and a session on how to teach and Zoom / stream classes simultaneously (20 day course only).
Part D practical and online study: approx 100 hours
Post residential course work including online study, attending classes and journaling your practice teaching experience. Or you can choose to book into one or more of our Specialty Courses and the hours can be used towards completing the required hours. If you have not completed your Part D within 2 years you will need to contact us to re-register and you will be charged a re-engagement fee of $150.
The Part A pre-course prep will fully prepare you for the residential intensive. The additional 8 day residential beyond the 12 day intensive will especially benefit those who either completed their Level 1 more than 6 months ago or who have not developed significant teaching experience.
With the 20 day residential course you have the opportunity to teach additional public classes at Byron Yoga Centre and be supported in completing Part C while a resident at the Byron Yoga Retreat Centre. Part D is then competed in your own time under supervision.
We recommend the 20 Day Course as the most thorough and comprehensive option for everyone.
