I felt this Yoga Teacher Training was more rounded than the average one out there. It gave us business knowledge, financial skills and better ways of living so that we had a better chance of surviving in the yoga world. My body felt amazing at the end of this training. My spine had a flexibility I had not known before. This modality is needed in the world. Thank you Yoga Synergy for your contribution to my life and my world. I am a Synergy student for life.

Vartika Agarwalla

With an experience of 5 years of teaching yoga in India, I can confidently say, the teacher training course with Bianca and Simon is an extensive learning of everything that has even remotely to do with yoga. The online version being extended over a year gives one more than enough time to learn, understand and live the subject. I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to study under gurus who are true yogis in this day and age. Thank you for your love and support!

Sheila Annis

Kyriaki Kyriakidou

I have wanted to join this YSTT since 2016 but time and cost issues were holding me back. In the meantime I completed the online YSA&P and started tuning in my teaching style to the YS one. Once I saw the online YSTT, I immediately enrolled and I am more than happy to have completed this unique for today's westernised standards method of hatha yoga. I already feel my body more relaxed even while executing sophisticated asanas or vinyasas. Contentment is more proximate to me now both in class and in life. Bianca & Simon are super stars in the sense of welcoming everyone and sharing their love and light indescriminately. Last but not least, I also want to thank Jennifer for her tireless & seemingly effortless assistance in Simon's classes. I have already changed my teaching style to 100% YS method and my students love it, too, despite the fact that teaching new stuff to new people online is not the easiest thing in the world. I feel that YS is the yoga method of the future times when himsa will have faded out so that our normal state will be that of ahimsa.

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.

Jess Ossington

I choose to complete my 200hr yoga teacher training with Yoga Synergy because they teach a safe, effective practice that is rooted in yogic tradition and guided by the knowledge of modern physiotherapy. The teacher training course is incredibly comprehensive in terms of both practical skills and theory. Completing the training in Goa, India with Simon Borg-Olivier was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life thus far. Simon truly is a master, and to learn from him is a joy and a privilege. I'm so grateful to Bianca and Simon for developing a practice that has had such a positive impact on my health, and I'm excited to share this knowledge as a yoga instructor.

Odonata K

Love love love Simon and Biancas teacher training, such a beautiful balance. I will be back for more. Namaste my beautiful mentors.

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.
