Byron Bay Level 2
Expand your knowledge, build your skills
Our Level 2 yoga teacher trainings are open to anyone with a Yoga Alliance accredited Level 1 training (non Byron Yoga Centre graduates will need to undertake a short online Conversion Course). You will add to the knowledge you gained in the 200 hour training and expand on your yoga teaching experience.
You can choose to attend the weekend course conducted over six months and attending one weekend each month for a total of six weekends. This option includes Friday and Saturday night accomodation and meals at Byron Yoga Retreat Centre. We also offer a non-residential alternative: you can join the group of international students for one term of our 12 month training attending two weekdays (Monday & Tuesday or Wednesday & Thursday) for 10 consecutive weeks. This option has shorter study days, includes more face to face sessions and less self study components.
Both options are currently open for waitlist with dates to be announced. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Each of our lead teachers have over 20 years of knowledge and expertise. The teaching staff on this course are experienced and dedicated. You’ll be inspired by our resident and guest yoga teachers alike, who ‘walk their talk’, living the yoga lifestyle, and are all knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects. All are passionate about supporting you in your continuing yoga journey.
Level 2 300 hour Teacher Training Qualification
Our Level 2 300-hour Teacher Training course is accredited with Yoga Alliance. You can add the 300 hour Level 2 qualification to your 200 hour certification to register as a RYT 500 hour with Yoga Alliance.
A part time course is ideal for those who cannot attend a residential training or who prefer to learn at a slower pace. You have time to fully integrate your leaning and, if you complete the online and teaching practice components between the study sessions, you will gain your 300 hour Level 2 certification at the successful completion of the final weekend, or you can complete the course in your own time and then graduate.
