Experience makes the difference
Byron Yoga Centre and The Yoga Well’s part time Non-Residential Sydney Teacher Training Course is a complete experience with 6 weekends over 6 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.
John Ogilvie Lead Trainer – founder and director of the Byron Yoga Centre, has been teaching yoga for over twenty-five years and developed the Byron Yoga Centre teacher training courses. John encourages a light heartedness in our approach to yoga and to ourselves. Teaching regular classes as part of the Byron Yoga studio weekly timetable, his classes are both challenging and dynamic, and integrate the different yoga styles of Iyengar and Ashtanga, as well as the softer Sivananda and Satyananda practices of yoga and the energy principles of Aikido.
Marita Dortins Senior Trainer – founder and Senior Teacher at The Yoga Well, in Alexandria. She is recognised as an E-RYT 500 by Yoga Alliance; currently the highest designation available. She has taught yoga for over 13 years and has amassed thousands of hours’ teaching experience, guiding students through classes, workshops, intensives and retreats. Marita’s teaching is characterised by clear instruction, a strong focus on alignment, skilful hands-on assists and creative sequencing.
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.
