Byron Yoga Centre Teacher Training Course


Experience makes the difference

Byron Yoga Centre’s part time Non-Residential Melbourne Teacher Training Course is a complete experience with six weekends over five months. The course includes training by Australia’s leading yoga training academy with some of the world’s most experienced trainers.

Established in 1988 by John Ogilvie, Byron Yoga Centre is one of the longest running yoga schools in Australia. The lead teachers have over 20 years of knowledge and expertise.

John Ogilvie is the founder and director of Byron Yoga Centre. John has been teaching yoga for over twenty years. He encourages a light heartedness in our approach to yoga and to ourselves.

Teaching yoga consists of more than simply the skills required to perform asanas correctly or knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Ultimately, the path to teaching yoga with awareness and understanding involves deepening your own practice.

Course Content

The course consists of a comprehensive program covering a broad range of fascinating subjects all aimed at deepening your understanding of not just the postures, but also pranayama (breathing practices), meditation, and yoga philosophy and lifestyle.

A big focus for us is teaching you to teach and making sure that both your practice and your teaching is safe and aware. All teacher trainees get the opportunity to develop their teaching skills in a real-life context in teaching public classes.

Over a relatively short time, you’ll emerge with the practical skills and confidence to launch your yoga teaching career.

Level 1 Teacher Training Qualification

The Byron Yoga Centre’s Level 1 part time Teacher Training Course is fully accredited with Yoga Alliance and Fitness Australia approved for 15 CEC’s. It is designed to deliver holistic training that encompasses the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the yogic path.
