    Asana 84 Postures

    Kelly Berzack (South Africa)

    As a beginner (only 2 years into practicing) and feel as though practicing yoga has truly changed my life, I am so very happy that I did this online course now. Gave incredible insight into correct posture and asana. I feel like I have a much better understanding and look forward to continually improving while at the same time fully accepting where I am now. I'm sure I will be using the videos regularly to keep being reminded and learn more as I go. Thank you and Namaste

    Marina Bordet

    Very complete course ! Simon makes the explanations of the asanas crystal clear, and I understood how important the kidneys area is, stiff in most people, including me, and how important it is to properly work on it. Some asanas are so misunderstood by majority of yoga teachers, I hope that more and more yoga teachers will do this course, to understand the biomechanics of the asanas. Deeply recommended for fitness trainers also, Squats and push-up explanations are gold.

    Having completed the YS Applied Anatomy & Physiology of Yoga, this course consolidated my learnings of the bundhas by taking a close look at their application in each posture. I now feel more confident to teach the bundhas more comprehensively in the postures. Thanks once again Simon for your tireless efforts with teaching YS and ensuring it has an international reach. Your passion for yoga, and the YS method continues to inspire me. I feel immensely fortunate and blessed to have been introduced to YS classes in Newtown all those years ago:) !! Namaste, Pippa

    Giorgia Cisorio

    I loved this course! Each pose is meticulously explained from foot to head focusing on the use of bandhas, mudras and stretch reflexes. This course provided me with a great understanding of how to practice each pose in a efficient way in order to improve the blood circulation thru my body and consequently improve my strength and flexibility but most importantly my health in a safe and sustainable way. The Asana Biomechanics 84 posture is a great course for everyone who want to enhance their own practice and yoga teachers. Thank you Simon and Bianca for sharing all this valuable knowledge.

    Gina Gutschmidt

    Thanks so much for the work you do. I benefit tremendously from your teachings and find them unique in the realm of movement and yoga. My life has changed much for the better by applying what I learn from you. And I am looking forward to see what happens if I learn even more.
    Appreciation is send your ways. BIG time 🙂
