Advanced Yoga Fundamentals: Essentials for teaching Yoga

Patricia Smith

I'm, as always, so impressed with Simon's and Bianca's knowledge. But not only that, also the way it is structured and presented to the students. Real learning is happening, fantastic structure to the course, even after being a Yoga teacher since a few years I have learnt so much. I call it safe and intelligent Yoga for the modern body. Love it and can't get enough of Yoga Synergy's courses! Thank you so much!

Branislava M.

And here it is, I did it all. One more educational period with absolutely great, wise and awesome people Bianca Machliss and Simon Borg-Olivier. I am so grateful that I decided to take all 3 of their online courses, I have learned so much. I guess next thing to do is doing it in person. So, hopefully, next stop Teacher Training. ☺️?
