Experience makes the difference

Byron Yoga Centre is one of the longest running yoga schools in Australia, established in 1988.  For this Canberra training, Byron Yoga Centre has partnered with Odona Farska and Flow Yoga Canberra to offer a weekend part time Level 1 200 hour course. The training will be run over 5 non-residential weekends, Friday to Sunday, in Canberra at the Flow Yoga studio in Dairy Road. The price includes all training sessions and the Byron Yoga Centre training manual.

A part time course is ideal for those who cannot attend a residential training or for those who prefer to learn at a slower pace. You have time to fully integrate your leaning and, if you complete the online study and practical teaching components between the weekend sessions, you will gain your 200 hour certification at the successful completion of the final weekend.

The Teachers

Under the guidance of  Flow Yoga founder Odona Farska and her assistant Renee Duarte, with some sessions delivered by senior Byron Yoga Centre teacher Chris Thompson-Lang, you’ll be inspired to delve into the content, expand your knowledgeable and develop confidence in teaching yoga to others. Be guided on your yoga journey by these amazing teachers!
