WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY


Teacher Training

Vidya Venkateswaran

The very best yoga training ever. Don’t think twice about it!! It’s clear, concise, anatomy and physiology based. You get such a grounding foundation to build on.

Judy Damas

I had been practicing using the Yoga Synergy Method for about 10 years before deciding to attend a teacher training course. I had also done all the Yoga Synergy courses and a number of workshops. The teacher training course was intensive and educational, it combined old Synergy with its focus on asanas with ever evolving Synergy's focus on spinal movements. The depth and knowledge of yoga by these physiotherapist/yoga masters is unmatched. I learned so much that I attended another teacher training the following year. In fact, I have decided to routinely return to training and I recommend to anyone looking for an integrative, deeper understanding of yoga.

Rachy Van W.

Yoga Synergy teacher training with Simon was more than life changing, but life forming. Everyone who is passionate about movement, yoga and living with freedom in the mind and soul would love this intensive training. I sure did.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

Teacher Training

Patricia Smith

I cannot rate Yoga Synergy and Simon and Bianca highly enough! They teach a style that is accessible and safe for everyone, have a way of teaching and engaging with their students that feels personal and caring, even in the online training courses which are the only ones I have done with Yoga Synergy. I can recommend any of their online courses for new, but also for highly experienced Yoga instructors as their wealth of knowledge is phenomenal. Love those guys and feel very grateful learning from both of them. Thank you Namaste

P. Choi

I completed my Yoga Synergy teacher training in 2016. The Yoga Synergy method is progressive, intelligent and transformational; the course curriculum (online and face-to-face) is thorough and relevant and the teachings from Bianca and Simon are accessible and positive. I love the Yoga Synergy method as a student and as a teacher. Thank you Yoga Synergy.

Kaori.

Simon and Bianca are the true Yoga teachers who have a really good understanding about traditional yoga philosophy, as well as a unique understanding about the human body in today’s world - a body that often struggles with traditional physical yoga practice/postures. Synergy is really like a safe bridge between the great traditional yoga and modern bodies. The teachers are really open/free spirits and loving being. Their methods are based on scientific evidence so they wont just tell you to "Feel the connection to the universe" or "Open your heart center" which i used to hear from lots of other teachers and never could believe what they said. I would strongly highly recommend you to learn from them!

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.

Brett Walsh (Australia)

This is yoga and a health approach that can take you through the rest of your life.  No gimmicks. Endless learning and understanding.

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

Bianca Machliss and Simon Borg Olivier, 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.

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.
