Purna Yoga – Making Yoga Completebyron-yoga-john-teaching

Yoga is a lot about giving and receiving. It has been proposed that we only keep what we have by giving it away, which is one of the main motivations for teaching and training others to teach.

The yoga taught at Byron Yoga Centre is called Purna, meaning integrated or complete. Purna Yoga represents a holistic approach to yoga integrating not just the physical postures but also philosophy, meditation, pranayama breath control and the yogic personal and social code of ethics. The postural instruction is alignment focused. Sequences range from gentle restorative to dynamic vinyasa. Blocks, belts and bolsters are available to be used to support and modify postures safely.

We seek to integrate all 8 limbs (Ashtanga) of yoga the way it was originally taught, more than 3000 years ago in India. Yoga asanas, or postures, are just one of these limbs. The other limbs are equally important, including meditation, pranayama breath control, and the personal and social code of ethics, the yamas and niyamas.

The practice of yoga is intended to be joyful and to lighten the heart and mind by calming and energizing. We encourage students at all levels to build flexibility, strength and stamina of body, mind and spirit. The postural instruction is alignment focused. Sequences range from gentle restorative to dynamic vinyasa. Yoga philosophies, such as ahimsa (non violence), are threaded throughout our classes. This helps bring about a deeper understanding of the key yogic values including diet and lifestyle aspirations. Many Byron Yoga Centre teacher trainees discover, as a consequence, that yoga becomes for them a way of life.

Byron Yoga Centre now teaches John’s signature Purna Yoga. Purna Yoga means integrated or complete, and represents a holistic approach to yoga, integrating not just the physical postures but also philosophy, meditation, pranayama breath control and the yogic personal and social code of ethics. Sequences range from gentle restorative to dynamic vinyasa. John encourages students at all levels to build flexibility, strength and stamina of body, mind and spirit.

Chloe Thorogood, has been practicing yoga for almost ten years. In 2008, she felt compelled to travel to India and deepen her personal practice. Here she studied Hatha yoga focussing on asana, pranayama, meditation and philosophy under Swami Brahmanand (SajiRamaswamy) at Vinynana Kale Vedi Cultural Centre for Indian Arts. Chloe was able to draw on her experiences in India and offer yoga on the senior curriculum at the school where she worked as a full time Physical Education teacher. Chloe supported her studies with a yoga tools for teachers certification and began teaching regularly. It was during this time in London that Chloe knew that yoga was her ultimate passion and she decided to travel to Byron Bay to complete her 500 hours Certificate IV with the Byron Yoga Centre. Chloe believes that everyone can enjoy different aspects of yoga and likes to include philosophy, pranayama and meditation in her flow classes. Chloe teaches regular classes for Byron Yoga Centre, and at other studios in the Byron shire. She also works on the level one and two teacher trainings.

“I did not expect such a depth of content or practice, which I am finding beneficial from a personal level as well as a potential studio operation level. I am enjoying every piece of reading, homework and personal practice.” T. Butler, Level 1 Graduate.
