Natacha Martins

Many thanks for everything. This course was really a wish come true! What you do, and how you teach is so flawless that sometimes we can actually believe it's easy!!! This course is not just "an online" course, but a really in depth one! Hope soon we can all do a "live" one. Learned a lot, felt very supported and hope to continue learning from these wonderful teachers! Natacha

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.

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!

Candy W.

If you want to learn to be a yoga teacher - Yoga Synergy is the only place to learn. The online courses supplied relevant information alongside the comprehensive practice videos, which included two levels of poses for those new to yoga and the more advanced. Yoga Synergy is suitable for all ages - energetic enough for the younger body while gentle enough for the older bodies. I had completed a 200 hour yoga training earlier, the result of this training made me feel very insignificant from very ego driven teachers, with no practical training supplied. Complete waste of money and time. My concern is now to learn the poses enough to make Bianca and Simon proud of their Yoga synergy styles when I teach. I would not teach any other style.

Simila Laiatici

It is a very complete course with enough material to learn and explore over a few years. One year is just the beginning of understanding. I was already yoga teacher 500 hr but I decided to do YSTT because of the Physiotherapist view, the physio-movement, the modern way to see yoga and the experience level of the teachers. I have personally met Simon once, and I follow almost every Bianca and Simon zoom. Miss that! Both very professional and also very kind yogis in the deep. I found much more than what I was expecting. Thanks

Nga Tran

"I did two teacher training courses with Simon and Bianca in 2015 and 2017, followed by a 10 day intensive Yoga therapy workshop in Sydney. These training courses both in person and online are one of the best training I've done which have shaped my personal practice and teaching today. Simon and Bianca's knowledge, support, and generosity are profound and I couldn't recommend Yoga Synergy enough to anyone who wants to become a yoga teacher or to deepen their teaching and practice."

MORE INFO


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.

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.
