Byron Yoga Centre’s two-year 10677NAT Diploma of Purna Yoga Management imparts specialist teaching skills in areas such as Yin Yoga and Restorative; it also includes training in Ayurveda and in small business management but does not offer specific qualifications in these two subjects.

The Diploma of Purna Yoga Management is the next step from the 10865NAT Cert IV in Yoga Teaching which is a prerequisite.

This training will build on the Certificate IV in Yoga Teaching. You will study advanced asana and philosophy and you will expand your yoga teaching skills, working to develop, teach and monitor personal yoga programs. You will also undertake units in Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga.
