What Others Say

Advanced Yoga Fundamentals: Essentials for teaching Yoga

Erin Armendariz

Yoga Synergy’s Advanced Yoga Fundamentals effectively presents the who, what, where, when, why and how of Yoga. Through reading the course material, participating in the lectures, and putting it all into practice I have learned: WHO can safely perform a pose (with modifications, precautions, and contraindications) WHAT each pose entails including internal actions usually undetected visually WHERE to focus activity in the body to reach the desired outcome of the pose WHEN a pose is best performed in the sequence/when the body is ready for more challenge WHY the pose affects movement of energy and information in the body’s deep pathways HOW the body can achieve the greatest benefit from each pose through tips and mindsets Advanced Yoga Fundamentals empowered me to experience the life-giving results physical yoga offers, including energy and wellness from various forms of physical movement. My body benefited from the course and is better prepared to share what I received.

Megan Grant

I loved the course. Thank you both. It was very thorough and educational without losing the essence of Yoga. I’m trying to get Fitness Australia to recognise your course for CEC’s as I teach in a Gym. I have had same and new participants for years and they love the style of Synergy Yoga. Thank you again.

Applied Anatomy & Physiology of Yoga

Louise Carter, Online Anatomy & Physiology Course

Woo Hoo! Thanks for the High Distinction! And thanks for the AAP course. Comparatively new to Yoga I completed the ‘Fundamentals’ course last year and felt that AAP was a natural progression. I really loved the course which I thought was a perfect balance between anatomical and physiological detail and application to Yoga. I appreciated the course structure, particularly the discipline of having to complete weekly tasks while working towards a fuller understanding of how and why. Many thanks also to Online Course Administrator Amelia whose reassuring presence was very supportive.

Safaa Serieddine

Well it was another exciting incredible course with Yoga Synergy, it was great how all the component of the course completing each other, how the lectures of Simon made the book very easy to understand, while it not very complicated but not easy to study or understand alone( while I am self learning person). Beside the wonderful supplementary practice videos. After finishing it I feel my brain glowing with these new important information, with this course beside Advanced Yoga Fundamentals course, give me the possibility to trust my home practicing SAFELY, with helping people around me to practice and learn practicing safely in addition to be able to find self treatment and heal far of medicines and doctors for me, my family and friends. Absolutely,I recommended this course not only for yoga practitioners, but for any person care about his health and people around him and I recommend Yoga Synergy particularly for anything in this field. BECAUSE it is very convincing depending on scientific reasonable data. Thank you very much I appreciate all your efforts.
