Teacher Training

Karen Van B

Ever since I was introduced to the yoga synergy method by my teacher, I was keen on taking a ytt with Bianca and Simon but wasn't able to travel and carve out a whole month away from my family. Probably one of the only positive consequences of the pandemic is that Yoga Synergy became an online training. I am enjoying the practices enormously and my body hasn't experienced any pain or discomfort since I started practicing Yoga Synergy on a daily basis. I did become stronger and have more range of motion at the same time. The live calls with Bianca and Simon have been very valuable and the anatomy is so extensive that I feel way more confident in teaching anatomy during my classes than before. I would recommend this training to anyone who is interested in deepening their practice or who wants to understand how you can teach yoga to everyone in a sensible manner.

Katherine Peverelle

I completed the 2020-2021 online teacher training course. The entire course took me an entire year to complete. The online courses (yoga fundamentals, yoga anatomy and asana) are worthwhile studying together as they compliment each other well. The material provided is thorough and in depth, and the video presentations are interesting and simple to follow. I think my favorite part of the course was the series of zoom lessons with Bianca and Simon. They are inspiring and welcoming teachers. No doubt the lessons would be far better in the flesh, but if you are unable to travel or leave home then this online course is a great option. The most important thing about the yoga synergy style of yoga is that it is accessible to many people because it encourages safe ways of performing postures. It encourages movements throughout the spine which has been tremendously advantageous in my own yoga practice. My students say they feel the difference in their practice too.

....I’d like to say a few words of gratitude. My time well spent at the Yoga Synergy Teacher Training retreat was one of my top highlights and life changing moments in Australia! This is a new beginning but a profound one. I have been so fortunate to have the honour of being taught by my most respected Yoga Teachers Simon Borg-Olivier and Bianca Machliss! Yoga Synergy has exceeded my expectations and I feel confident to carry out the knowledge and skills to transfer the beautiful flow of Hatha Yoga on to my future students. Whether I teach at Yoga Synergy soon or take this back to Canada or other parts of the world, I will carry out their legacy forward and share this beautiful art form to all those who want to receive it. Both teachers weighing a balance of tremendous trial and experience, skill and creativity in their own brilliant way and methods have made an enormous impact on my well-being down to the cellular level and far beyond words I can’t even express! I forever am grateful to be where I am today! .... I’ve learned a great deal about who I am, affirmed what I already know, assured of my purpose, realized more of my gifts and talents beyond the cutting edge yoga training that I forever am grateful to have gleaned. Thanks to the two awesome people behind Yoga Synergy for creating something special for others to be inspired by..... My cup is full and I’m ready to pour it out to all of you who want to learn more. Thank you both for making a spectacular difference in my life! Yoga Synergy Teacher Training Australia 2018

Italy Teacher Training Course Information

Our Philosophy
Yoga Synergy is a comprehensive method for practicing and teaching traditional yoga for the modern body. The practice of yoga brings awareness to the self and awakens the heart and soul of the individual. The more we practice yoga, the more we awaken and are able to guide others in this process of realizing our incredible human vitality. Practice is the key, and at Yoga Synergy we use methods to make the practice safe, responsive, dynamic, meditative and fun so that it is becomes a lifetime practice, enhancing and bringing joy to all aspects of life.
The Yoga Synergy Method
Simon Borg-Olivier and Bianca Machliss, both advanced yoga practitioners, experienced teachers and physiotherapists, have spent 30 years developing a scientifically based method for practicing Yoga and for Yoga teacher training called the ‘Yoga Synergy Method’. This method offers a yoga practice that is accessible to all, easy to understand and to teach. At the same time it is a challenging practice that develops strength, flexibility, fitness, internal health and a meditative flow. The Yoga Synergy method will:
  • increase flexibility without painful stretching
  • build strength without stressful muscle tension
  • increase circulation without increasing heart rate
  • bring more oxygen to your cells without breathing more than normal
  • bring intelligence to your cells without needing to have to think
After more than a decade of learning directly from yoga masters such as Sri B.K.S. Iyengar, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sri T.V.K. Desikarchar in the 1980’s and 1990’s, Simon and Bianca returned to Sydney University to complete degrees in Physiotherapy (Physical Therapy) in 1993, to learn more about the human body for the benefit of their yoga practice and teaching. Their deep understanding of anatomy and physiology of yoga is applied in the Yoga Synergy Yoga teacher training method. This practical method aims to prevent and assist in recovery of, the many musculoskeletal injuries and medical conditions that occur as a result of modern yoga and exercise practice.

FAQ's



    What Our Trainees Say

    Simply awesome and highly recommended! The most complete teacher training program with lot of materials and insights about every aspect of yoga practice, from anatomy and physiology to history and philosophy. Bianca and Simon are very wise, empathetic and trustworthy, I feel honored to study with them.ANDREA OLIVETTI (ITALY)
    I think before synergy my practice had been one based on competing with my body, forcing it into submission. But Yoga 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.JAMES MARSH (UK)
    Bianca and Simon are great teachers.The synergy style is gentle and very accessible to all bodies.The online training has its advantages of being time flexible and accessible for people all over the world, however it is merely an eye opener and to get the full benefit of the training I think an in person training is still the best option. I have learnt so much from the course and would highly recommend anyone interested in yoga to spend time to learn what Simon and Bianca has to offer.truly grateful for their teachings. My yoga practice will never be the same again - in a good way! I have learnt so much, and am truly grateful for this teacher training because it gave me the tools to not only be able to safely teach others but to improve my own practice. I find the synergy style very intelligent, and not just based on appearance, but on logical and scientific interpretation of traditional teachings. I now incorporate the synergy movements into my own daily practice, and have noticed the difference in my body, as I become warmer, more active, and more connected just by doing simple-looking movements. I learnt simple doesn't mean easy, and simple can be extremely effective, and have the same benefit as complex movements. I also learnt that a pose may look simple, but there is so much going on inside, properly engaging the right muscles and knowing the purpose of the pose is more important than copying the physical form. I realised the value of building a solid foundation, in learning key areas to focus on, and taking these same principles into all postures. The assignments have been very cleverly designed to make sure I dig deeper into the resources to have a better understanding. I really enjoyed doing them! Overall I am so glad I did the course, and learnt more than I expected. I hope I can teach at Yoga Synergy one day and share my love of yoga with others, and spread the knowledge Bianca and Simon have passed onto me through this training.TIAN SHENG (AUSTRALIA)
    Yoga Synergy revoluntionized how I view my yoga practice. As someone who regularly encountered physical, emotional and spiritual pain during my yoga journey, I believe these experiences guided me towards facilitators who stress the importance of safety and ease. I found Bianca and Simon’s delivery so clearly stated, safety focused and easy to understand. They also made the idea of safety in the practice itself so engaging that I am re-filled with a fresh paradigm to applying the postures to the Beginners Mind. So, thank you for re-aligning my entire concept of modern yoga. It feels like the relief after someone has clicked my spine back into place after being disjointed for so long.CAROL-ANNE O'KANE (UK)
