Dr Sarah Woodgate, Psychiatrist, Bondi Yoga Synergy

Justine Lange

I had been experimenting with different yoga schools in Sydney for almost a year, but had yet to find one I really felt connected to. In late 2009, my former hairdresser in Brisbane – who moonlights as a yoga instructor – suggested I try Yoga Synergy. From the beginning, my experience was welcoming and positive. Every teacher displayed a genuine interest in my wellbeing. There was sense of mind-body connectedness. And I felt that my chronic knee injury was taken seriously and not “pushed through”. Regularly attending Yoga Synergy has provided me with a calmer, more meditative space for myself and improved my ability to practice yoga in a mindful way.
