Purna is alignment based hatha yoga with intelligent sequencing that John Ogilvie developed after many years of experience. Purna, meaning integrated or complete, incorporates not just the physical postures but also meditation, pranayama breath control, philosophy and the yogic personal and social code of ethics.
All our classes are suitable for every level of practitioners as options are given for beginners through to advanced students.
In Purna Classic classes the teacher focuses on correct alignment and moving safely into and out of poses. Students are encouraged to progress slowly and steadily through a sequence of poses. Teachers will sometimes workshop a key pose or spend time on modifications and options. The classes are designed to strengthen and open the body.
These classes incorporate the Purna style into a more flowing sequence. Teachers still give priority to correct alignment while also seeking to flow with the breath from one pose to another through choreographed transitions. These classes usually include vinyasa (moving with the breath through plank pose, chataranga, updog / cobra to down dog).
This is a more gentle style of Purna Yoga. Poses are held for longer and attention is placed on the breath. Teachers are likely to make use of props such as bolsters, blankets and blocks to facilitate correct alignment and to make students comfortable in the longer holds. Participants enjoy the relaxed pace of these classes, ideal for restoring energy.
Yin Yoga is fast becoming a popular antidote to the increasingly busy lifestyle many people lead. Poses are held for 3-15 minutes allowing time for them to work on many levels – physically, mentally and emotionally. Fewer props are used than for restorative yoga and students are more likely to experience sensations of stretching, opening and releasing.
Purna Trainees ($5 classes or use your membership)
These classes are taught by our advanced Certificate IV 800 hour teacher trainees who have all completed their 200 hour Level 1 training and have already embarked on their yoga teaching careers. The style of yoga will be Purna Classic and would be particularly enjoyable for students with less experience as the focus will be on the foundations of practicing poses safely. The classes are only $5 or you can use your membership. * The money from these classes go to the Byron Yoga Centre charities: Food for Life, Rainforest Rescue, Amma’s charities and The Buttery.

Byron Yoga Centre offers daily yoga classes all year round to help raise funds for their three supported non-profit organisations The Buttery, Rainforest Rescue and ISKCON Food for Life Program.
A percentage from community yoga classes, net of administrative costs, is distributed to these charities. This allows the Centre to offer back to the community which has given so abundantly, and enables us to put our commitment to living the philosophy of yoga into action.
