What Others Say

Advanced Yoga Fundamentals: Essentials for teaching Yoga

I thoroughly enjoyed learning the importance of moving safely in and out of postures. Watching and practicing the videos has taught me so much about teaching with confidence and care. Thanks to Simon and Bianca for giving so generously of their knowledge and time.

I learned so much during the yoga fundamental course. It opened up new ways of thinking, practising and understanding of yoga. It was super!

Applied Anatomy & Physiology of Yoga

Simon has without a doubt, an amazing understanding of the body and mind, in all aspects, and has such a beautiful teaching manner. I have taken away with me some invaluable gems of information and advice to apply to my own practice, and to my teaching in the future. It was a very enriching experience for me! I’m so looking… continue reading

Question?

Q. "I am a yoga teacher of around 5 years and have been teaching regularly over this period and also have a daily Ashtanga practice. Which course is best for me"?

A. We do find all teachers, even those with many years experience benefit greatly and learn a lot from the Advanced Yoga Fundamentals course. Bianca and Simons approach to Asana is very different and incredibly intelligent and can be used in all styles of Yoga. Most people also find they get a lot more out of the Applied Anatomy course once they have a deeper understanding of the YogaSynergy method.
