Byron Yoga Centre was established in 1988 by John Ogilvie and is one of the longest running yoga schools in Australia.
We offer daily general yoga classes of diverse styles as well as workshops, annual yoga and health retreats and Australia’s first fully-accredited, 200 and 500 hour Yoga Alliance and Cert IV teacher training courses.
Byron Yoga Centre maintains a strong holistic philosophy to yoga that mirrors the essence of its birthplace. The Centre provides a wealth of experience for anyone considering yoga teacher training or simply wishing to advance their existing practice.
Purna Yoga:The yoga taught at Byron Yoga Centre we call Purna, a Sanskrit word meaning 'complete', 'integrated' or 'full'. We seek to integrate all 8 limbs (Ashtanga) of yoga the way it was originally taught, more than 3000 years ago in India. Yoga asanas, or postures, are just one of these limbs. The other limbs are equally important, including meditation, pranayama (breath control), and the personal and social code of ethics, the yamas and niyamas.
