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.

Applied Anatomy & Physiology of Yoga

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.

Simon’s Applied Anatomy and Physiology of Yoga course is an invaluable course for anyone wishing to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the body. It is practical and interactive, highly informative and a lot of fun. Simon is clear in his teaching, passionate, holds your attention and presents the content in an easy to understand manner. The Science of Yoga is presented in a way which can be applied by everyone very practically both in their own practise and in the teaching of others. Simon focuses on working intuitively and encourages us to be mindful of our individual limitations but at the same time urges us to do our best. It has made a huge difference in my own personal practise giving me a greater increase in strength, flexibility and a deeper awareness of my body both internally and externally. You walk away with the feeling that you have received a unique gift. I have completed the course 3 times and I look forward to doing it again! So many gems of wisdom from a truly inspiring man.

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.


Yoga Synergy Classes

In 1998, I was suffering recurrent migraines caused by tension in my neck and upper back. I was managing this with massages but it was a reactive and expensive solution that didn’t address the cause. Then my chiropractor suggested I attend Yoga Synergy. Yoga helped enormously and continues to do so. I don’t get many migraines nowadays but, when I do, nothing but yoga fixes it. I don’t bother taking painkillers, I practice yoga. Of course, I also keep going back because yoga gives me a sense of wellbeing, improves my mood and provides a nurturing space for my body and mind.

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 practiced with Yoga Synergy at Bondi in 2005 and since then have been living in QLD. I’ve mostly been exercising in a gym environment, drifiting from the wisdom of the practice that I treasured. Then I revisited the Yoga Synergy DVD Air Beginner. It was a deeply MOVING experience and I felt as if a better part of myself was awoken. I want to express my GRATITUDE to both Simon and Bianca for the highest standoard of Yoga they offer. I strongly believe that you have made the world a better place, helping individuals become more open, balanced and “inwardly calm”. My fiance claims I had my best parenting moment the other day as I was able to converse with our daughter after her first day of school….but I put it down to Yoga Synergy, so thank you, thank you, thank you both.

After studying yoga for many years, in mid-2009, I began attending Yoga Synergy in order to take my practice to the next level. The Yoga Synergy style of yoga is strong but graceful, dancelike and exquisite. The applied anatomy and physiology which informs the teaching is brilliant. And the tuition in pranayama and mediation is profound. Through their intelligent and sophisticated teaching, Simon, Bianca and their team open a path to significant physiological, emotional and spiritual development. The experience has exceeded all my hopes and expectations. And, it is really lovely to practice there.

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.
