Testimonial

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.

Not really a discussion thread, but just feel I must express my gratitude to Simon for so generously sharing his knowledge. I am loving the course and finding the information so helpful with my own practice. I did attend a Yoga Synergy class when i was in Sydney recently. Even tho I have been practising yoga for over 20 year I felt like a complete novice! The yoga teacher, however ( Amelia) was so professional, compassionate and inclusive. Wish I could attend on a more regular basis.

Thank you again Simon. Your efforts are so much appreciated.

  1. 5 out of 5

    This course dramatically changed my 20 year old practice. I find that by applying the principles taught in this class, I am floating through, versus "powering through" challenging vinyasa sequences. If you want to truly discover what it feels like to embody stira and suka, take this course. The sequence is taught so that it can be easily applied to students of all levels, with a strong emphasis on injury prevention, which is sorely needed in the yoga world today. Can't recommend this course enough.

  2. 5 out of 5

    I loved the course!
    The fundamental course provides a level of understanding of the philosophy of yoga, am important concept to understand as a teacher.
    The content is clearly set out, easy to follow and comprehend. Each module is set out clearly, with reading, videos and the assignments to complete. The assignments are essential to understanding the concepts developed in the module. Simon always answered any question that I had if I struggled to understand a topic as part of the studies and course requirements.
    The course helped deepen my own yoga practice.

  3. 5 out of 5

    Enjoyed the course immensely. For me personally, taking the Anatomy and Physiology of Yoga course prior to this one worked better, and I definitely recommend them both and in that order. Then you come to your YTT totally prepared and fly through it, cementing the knowledge and reinforcing the skills. Personally I would not qualify anyone to be yoga teacher without them passing both courses and passing with at least 85% if not 100%.
    No one can teach unless they understand what really is going on in someone body. These two fundamental courses are a must.
