What others say
At Yoga Synergy, we’ll help to develop your strength, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness and resilience to stress. Each practice you do will promote good internal health, physical grace, positive energy and peace of mind. But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what some of our current students say about us.
“If you want to learn a way to free your body, spine, mind and unleash energy, letting it flow through your body, causing a joy while moving, while staying relaxed and while breathing calmly then try Yoga Synergy”
I think before synergy my practice had been one based on competing with my body, forcing it into submission. But synergy teaches you to find the subtle practice, allowing you to actually begin hearing and synchronizing with your own body, opening up a whole universe of healing.

“Do it, most intelligent, beautiful, evolutionary style of yoga. Do this teacher training and you will never have to do another.” Anna Maria Conneely (Ireland)
I have thoroughly enjoyed Complete Sequence Set. When the student is ready the teacher appears. I have been practicing Yoga for about 14 years now and I have found some good instruction and not so good instruction. I have an at home practice so the download has been a wonderful addition. With an At- home practice as you know the student can follow the path of least resistance and ignore the hard parts and keep what is easy.
Thank you so much. I am sure that I will be ordering again from you for other items. I have already experienced some more body knowledge in a short time of use. The instruction is well thought out and presented in a way that is easy to understand.
Thank You Again

Applied Anatomy & Physiology of Yoga
Louise Carter, Online Anatomy & Physiology Course
Woo Hoo! Thanks for the High Distinction! And thanks for the AAP course. Comparatively new to Yoga I completed the ‘Fundamentals’ course last year and felt that AAP was a natural progression. I really loved the course which I thought was a perfect balance between anatomical and physiological detail and application to Yoga. I appreciated the course structure, particularly the discipline of having to complete weekly tasks while working towards a fuller understanding of how and why.
Many thanks also to Online Course Administrator Amelia whose reassuring presence was very supportive.

I loved it, coming from an Iyengar background I really appreciated the attention to detail and believe all new teachers should do it!
Advanced Yoga Fundamentals: Essentials for teaching Yoga
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.

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 about the human body, and that yoga can make conditions worse if you apply it unintelligently.
Simon is a biologist, physiotherapist and yoga teacher and his knowledge about the human anatomy and physiology, and his insight about how traditional yoga and modern western physiotherapy can be brought together is so unique and profound that I have retrained with him as a Yoga Synergy teacher and I also taught 25 Yoga teachers how to teach with respect and understanding of the Yoga Synergy style.
This Yoga Therapy course is one of the most helpful courses I have ever done in Yoga and it informed not only myself but also my students and teacher trainees to a level where I am confident that our teachings will be safe effective and importantly promote a confidence in both the teachers and the students to promote health in addition to managing pain and conditions that present in class. I insist that all teachers at our studios have completed the Yoga Synergy online courses and actively encourage anyone with a strong interest in Yoga to take this course.
Yoga Synergy Classes

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.
Beautiful intuitive yoga, lovely supportive teachers, and kind gentle community. Highly recommended
