At Yoga Synergy, all our teachers receive individual training from Yoga Synergy Directors Simon Borg-Olivier and Bianca Machliss. This means that, no matter which class you attend, you’ll always benefit from the same in-depth understanding of yoga theory and practice and a high standard of instruction.

Of course, all our instructors also bring their own unique background, set of strengths and personality to their classes. To learn more about their particular skills and areas of interest, click on one of the instructors below. We’d love to introduce them to you.
