What others say
In 2005, following a roadside discussion with a student on his way to a class, I decided to give Yoga Synergy a try. I have now become a dedicated student following the excellent results that are undoubtedly due to my regular attendance. As a long time sufferer of a prolapsed disc, I am grateful each day that my affliction has finally been brought under control. My thanks go to the Yoga Synergy instructors who ensure I practice with care, perseverance and above all faith. One of the greatest joys is now the equanimity and contentment that my evening Yoga class brings.

I have been a student at Yoga Synergy since the beginning of 2010. I now regularly attend the 6am yoga class in addition to my other training which includes cycling, pilates and weight training. Since starting yoga, I have gained increased muscular and postural core strength. It has also improved my endurance, stamina flexibility and balance – and relieved me of the persistent pain of an injured shoulder and lower back. Yes all of the above!! Plus, I feel significantly more centred and happy, and look forward to each class because I know how good it will make me feel.

In 1998, I was suffering recurrent migraines caused by tension in my neck and upper back. I was managing this with massages but it was a reactive and expensive solution that didn’t address the cause. Then my chiropractor suggested I attend Yoga Synergy. Yoga helped enormously and continues to do so. I don’t get many migraines nowadays but, when I do, nothing but yoga fixes it. I don’t bother taking painkillers, I practice yoga. Of course, I also keep going back because yoga gives me a sense of wellbeing, improves my mood and provides a nurturing space for my body and mind.
Marina Suarez, Psychotherapist, Newtown Yoga Synergy
After studying yoga for many years, in mid-2009, I began attending Yoga Synergy in order to take my practice to the next level. The Yoga Synergy style of yoga is strong but graceful, dancelike and exquisite. The applied anatomy and physiology which informs the teaching is brilliant. And the tuition in pranayama and mediation is profound. Through their intelligent and sophisticated teaching, Simon, Bianca and their team open a path to significant physiological, emotional and spiritual development. The experience has exceeded all my hopes and expectations. And, it is really lovely to practice there.
Mark Dempsey, Lawyer, Bondi Yoga Synergy
In 1996, I kept passing the Newtown studio, picking up flyers and then returning to the comfort of my couch. Eventually I made it through the door looking for a change of mind, body and lifestyle. I found all these things at Yoga Synergy and I am very grateful. Yoga Synergy is driven by Bianca’s and Simon's passion, enthusiasm, experience and professionalism. It serves a brand of yoga that is grounded in physiology and anatomy, without the new age frills and distractions. As a scientist aiming to keep an open mind, I have found yoga has stretched it further and in directions that benefit my daily life. My advice is to open that door.
Dr John Wilkinson, Senior Virologist, St Vincent's, Newtown Yoga Synergy
I had been experimenting with different yoga schools in Sydney for almost a year, but had yet to find one I really felt connected to. In late 2009, my former hairdresser in Brisbane – who moonlights as a yoga instructor – suggested I try Yoga Synergy. From the beginning, my experience was welcoming and positive. Every teacher displayed a genuine interest in my wellbeing. There was sense of mind-body connectedness. And I felt that my chronic knee injury was taken seriously and not “pushed through”. Regularly attending Yoga Synergy has provided me with a calmer, more meditative space for myself and improved my ability to practice yoga in a mindful way.
Dr Sarah Woodgate, Psychiatrist, Bondi Yoga Synergy
I had been practicing yoga for several years, but – as I was pregnant – I needed to look for a school that taught really safely and responsibly. The fact that Simon and Bianca were both qualified Physiotherapists very much appealed to me. I started going to a pre-natal class at Yoga Synergy and have never looked back! I love the fact that every sequence is different and that the teachers are constantly expanding my understanding of yoga. My daily practice and twice-weekly classes have helped me overcome periods of personal grief, insomnia and illness and become a really important part of my life.
