Byron Yoga Centre’s part time non-residential 200 hour Level 1 in Melbourne is accredited with Yoga Alliance and ideal for those who cannot attend a residential training in Byron Bay or for those who prefer to learn at a slower pace. Senior teachers will deliver a premium training and our Purna Yoga holistic approach to training encompasses not just learning about the asanas (postures) but also the many other aspects of yoga: pranayama (breathing practices), meditation, and yogic philosophy.

On a part time course you have time to fully integrate your leaning and, if you complete the online study and practical teaching components between the sessions, you will gain your 200 hour certification at the successful completion of the final weekend.

The weekend course is conducted over weekends. You will also need to complete online work and practical teaching experience.

The price includes all training sessions and the Level 1 manual. It does not include any accommodation or meals.
