BIYOME offers you the ultimate connection between the Western Medical Model and the Ancient Science of Yoga: enriching programs that foster teachers of integrative lifestyle medicine, job ready for a future in allied health.

The teaching we offer you aims to assist you in cultivating a deeply interconnected experience of mind, body and heart.  All of our courses are tailored to deliver to you pioneering evidenced-based medicine, side by side with transcendental experience. We introduce you to and inspire you in the science and practice of yoga teacher training, meditation teacher training, also known as: BioMedical Yoga, Meditation & Lifestyle Medicine.

"My education and experience combined has brought me to a place where, above all else, I believe in offering the highest quality yogic education.  This is done through continually revisiting and reinvestigating research, resources, values, and touchstone delivery of teaching in the field of yoga, meditation, and mind-body medicine. I am inspired by truth, trust, connection, education, mindful living and people from all walks of life.  Moreover, I take passion and pride in the ongoing development of our innovative, evidence-based yoga and mediation teacher training programme that, I am excited to announce, will be running through our new organisation: The BioMedical Institute of Yoga and Meditation, BIYOME (pronounced Bi-yo-me)." - Celia Roberts

Hi Celia, Just wanted to say thank you for the knowledge and inspiration you shared yesterday at the retreat. I enjoyed it immensely and did such a lovely practice and meditation last night which was really enhanced by the retreat earlier in the day. I have been feeling fantastic today and I am teaching a class this afternoon and will be doing my own meditation this evening. So looking forward to it.


This year I took up more regular meditation practice in preparation for surgery. I am sure this practice contributed significantly to my healing and recovery. I am much more aware of my body, feel the energy moving throughout my body and sense an openness and peacefulness which is hard to describe, but is pleasant, very comfortable. Meditation has also helped me to find acceptance, particularly self-acceptance, which is giving me a greater sense of well-being and more frequent calmness. This is assisting me to speak and act with less emotional attachment while being present to the moment which is improving my relationships with others and actually achieving better outcomes.

I have loved the course and the resources and feel as though there is a lifetime of learning in the materials... Often when I read a piece, I would think, "I must come back to that". I'm sure this must be the case for many of your students. Being from interstate and therefore not able to do the course in person, the high quality and accessibility of the work produced by the Institute has been invaluable and a real boost during our extensive COVID lockdowns... my heartfelt thanks to Celia and the team at BIYOME for the high quality of the work you do.
