I started teaching only a few years ago but ’84 Postures’ made me realize how little I know about the methodology of teaching. This course is a must for anyone who wants to be a good, knowledgeable yoga teacher.

Advanced Yoga Fundamentals: Essentials for teaching Yoga

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… continue reading

I was a little nervous in the beginning , hoping it would all all make sense to me 🙂 But I have found this course to be so informative and interesting and I love the lay out and order of each topic and how everything truly comes together and makes total sense to me . 🙂

Applied Anatomy & Physiology of Yoga

“I loved this course! It played a fundamental role in furthering my study as a yoga teacher. Coming from an Iyengar trained background, and as a lead teacher myself, I really appreciated the fine attention to detail. Simon and Bianca are expert teachers who are able to deliver the subject of yoga Anatomy and Physiology in a comprehensive seamless whole…. continue reading

I got a great deal out of the course. It’s a funny thing because Simon starts and ends the course saying ‘breathe less, bend less, move slower’ and then in between there’s these incredible 12 topics packed with SO MUCH knowledge and experience. A great deal of what he demonstrates is well beyond my current physical capacity, so the wisdom… continue reading continue reading

Yoga Therapy

Deep and thorough knowledge of all disciplines relevant to yoga, decades of practice at a very high level and an incredible generosity towards students of all levels. No calculation, political correctness or other superficiality here; this is the essence of yoga taught with joy and with an open heart. Highest respect and gratitude.

I loved this course. I gained so much knowledge about treating people coming to yoga with injuries, and at the same time got a lot of tips on better posture alignment, breathing, movement. Simon Borg is a natural-born teacher, who can explain anything in an accessible way.

I’ve been studying with Simon & Bianca in person and online since 2011. I have done all their online courses and participated in many of their workshops. Before that, I’d been trained as an Ashtanga teacher and suffered several self inflicted injuries. It was only when Yoga Synergies teachings started to sink in that I realized how little I know… continue reading continue reading continue reading

I am really enjoying this and study for the first time with Simon and Bianca hope to do more courses online and after pandemic meet them in person!

Asana 84 Postures

The course was fabulous, helping me to consolidate further my understanding and application of the bundhas in a wider variety of postures.

I found them useful in the way I’ve studied Ashtanga with such a rigid methodology, your posture has enabled me to relax more, they have open my hip flexors, and it’s given me more tools on how to approach posture

This course is totally amazing! Simon have shared a lot of invaluable information regarding to the scope of this course. All lectures are done in professional, structured and convincing form. My expectations about this course are even exceeded! Final demonstration of an asanas in yoga Synergy style reaffirms my belief that Simon is a great Yoga teacher and practitioner.

It has been a very good learning experience with the course and excellent teaching style.

I thoroughly enjoyed completing this course. The online learning made it easy for me to take my time with it. I was able to digest the information at my own pace, explore the different cues on my mat, and apply it to my practice. Human anatomy is a vast and potentially intimidating subject. However, approaching it in a practical way… continue reading continue reading continue reading continue reading continue reading

Ashtanga Vinyasa

I discovered Yoga Synergy and Simon while searching for a cure for sciatica developed from general yoga classes. I was hesitant to use yoga to cure something which yoga had caused, however, once I listened and watched Simon I realised he was different. He actually seemed to know what he was saying. I purchased his beginner DVDs and did them… continue reading

It is the best approach to Ashtanga. So simple, effective and not dogmatic!

I’ve got about 30 years of yoga practice with some excellent instructors both live and on-line, but this course (and the really excellent “84 Postures”) advances things to an entirely new level. Also, you can adapt it to your own body and expertise and it’ll protect you from being injured (and if you got hurt in the past you’ll probably… continue reading continue reading continue reading

Simon is very detailed in his explanations of the postures. Very knowledgeable. Enjoying the course and new poses, learning at my own pace.

The course is unique in bringing the 2 hatha concepts of ‘ hard’: the ancient traditional yoga philosophy of mind body energy flowing and the modern idea of ‘no pain no gain’ . The clear progressive practices in the course allows anybody interested in fitness, health and mindfulness to access the traditional vinyasa sequences by giving back the traditional ‘… continue reading continue reading continue reading continue reading continue reading

Breathe

I enjoyed the course. I feel it was built well. (Breathe)

As an athlete this Pranayama course (as well as the same practice during the TT in Goa and Bali) is like strength training for the respiratory system , like getting the breathing system to a good gym and do weight lifting , gradually , sustainable and therefore functional. Also, I adopted it as altitude training before a run race in… continue reading continue reading

thanks for detailed course with clear instruction, and the videos are also very clear.

I had no difficulty to follow the sequence I was able to follow all the intervals I had more difficulty in the last retention. Well now, what I have to do ? Maintain each fase 15 seconds each one ? Try to increase the intervals ?
