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.Erin
Such a great course! Very informative and engaging. I love the way how Simon invites students to participate whenever he explains something in order to put his words into action. It was truly a joyful learning experience. Simon offers effective delivery methods for each problem or case study and teaches all therapists and teachers to remain humble and positive. I am overall satisfied with the course and would highly recommend it!
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!
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.
Asana 84 Postures
Thanks for a fantastic course, Simon! I've been learning a tremendous amount from you. After some 6 years of Ashtanga vinyasa, I listened to a couple of interviews with you, and your approach resonated with me. My teacher introduced me to your fundamentals. I bought the videos of the fundamentals series a year ago, and have been practicing them on alternating weeks with Ashtanga Vinyasa 1st and 2nd series. I felt comfortable that I understood the basic principles but found some of the detailed instructions a bit too fast to follow or remember to do on my own. I feel that the Asana Biomechanics 84 postures course anchored the Fundamental Series in a broader context, and gave me a better understanding of the nuances of Yoga Synergy. I will go over the downloaded videos a few more times over the next few months, and then see which of your other courses might be a suitable next step. Thanks again!
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 through familiar asana's, allowed for new information to be synthesised more easily. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in Yoga Asana and how to move the body in a safe way.
Thank you so much. I feel incredibly grateful to have access to this wisdom. Thank you both so much again for your wonderful integrity and dedication. 🙏 Maggie
This ’84 Postures Course’ is essential for everyone who wants to gain insight into the gist of the most common yoga postures. I started my yoga studies with Ashtanga Yoga ten years ago, and kept on practicing for years without any anatomical knowledge. I ended up with a bulging vertebra and with chronic pain in my lower back. But since I came across the teachings of Simon Borg-Olivier and have done all three of his online courses – including ’84 Postures’ – I have had a sort of epiphany and finally I have much more sense and discernment about my body. Plus ’84 Postures’ not only enhances your knowledge about the most frequently taught asanas, but also helps you how to teach other people safely and effectively.
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
