“It’s always something that has been said to us in all the courses: that safety is first. I truly agree with that. In my own practice too: I have learnt to always pull back if I feel that I’m just pushing myself that little bit too much. You have to listen to your body it’s very important,” Irene, Level 2 Graduate

Comprehensive Course Content

Reflecting the holistic approach of our signature yoga style, Purna Yoga, the teacher training courses at Byron Yoga Centre are comprehensive and thorough, covering the many diverse elements of yoga, including systematic analysis of the postures, the breathing techniques, as well as the more subtle branches of meditation, philosophy and ethics.

We aim to maintain a standard of excellence in yoga education with a robust faculty of resident and guest senior teachers who are experts in their respective fields, such as Anatomy and Physiology, Yoga Philosophy, Women’s Health, Ayurveda, and Kirtan (chanting).

“I feel I now have more of a complete understanding of yoga. It has definitely deepened my practice and understanding. I really enjoyed learning more about meditation and pranayama, as well as philosophy,” Sarah, Level 2 Teacher Training Graduate

Teaching you to teachbyron-yoga-adjustment-john-misa

We believe that the best way to learn how to teach, is, to teach! Byron Yoga Centre courses have a strong emphasis on the practical, so that you leave us not only knowing more about the art and science of yoga, but also with the vital experience behind you to go out there, and start teaching!

A key element to our courses is the practical experience we offer with ample opportunity to teach the public – ’real, live students’ – not just practising on your fellow trainees.

Trainees receive their first experience of teaching the public just a short way into the course, and by the end of the course, have been involved in teaching at least 12 hours of open public classes.

Within this context of this practical experience, a big focus for us at Byron Yoga Centre, is teaching you to teach safely.

Change your life for the better

Many of our trainees find that yoga teacher training is a transformational experience, in so many unforeseen ways.

“Byron yoga has been the catalyst for change. It has encouraged me to be more aware of myself and to consciously and consistently practice my asana daily, which has readjusted the balance in my life. It has been the motivation which has prompted my husband and myself to not only fully embrace yogic life, but move to Byron!” Ella, Level 2 Graduate
