200 Hour Level 1 Teacher Training

This qualification is the minimum requirement to enable you to teach in studios and gyms and to get insurance to teach private clients. The style of yoga taught at Byron Yoga Centre was developed by founder John Ogilvie and this Purna style of yoga is ideal for those new to teaching.

You will learn how to teach key foundation poses in a classic hatha style. The opportunity for practical teaching experience during the course, with actual public classes not just other participants, will build your skills and confidence.

The recommended option is the 20-day complete course. This will get you your 200-hour RYT certificate at the successful completion of the residential training. Those with limited time can opt for the 12-day concise course. This requires additional correspondence components and practical teaching following the residential training, so it can take a few more months until you are certified to teach.

300-hour Level 2 Teacher Training

Byron Yoga Centre also offers this as a 20- or 12-day option. Both residential courses require additional online study and practical teaching experience before you are awarded your 300-hour qualification. You can then apply to Yoga Alliance for your 500-hour RYT certification. Students who did their 200-hour training with another Yoga Alliance-accredited course can join this 300-hour course once they complete a short online Conversion Course.

The 300-hour training appeals to those who want to delve deeper in yogic philosophy, pranayama and meditation. You will also develop your teaching skills through workshops and the practical teaching opportunities on the course.

500-hour course
