Description of this Yoga Teacher Training

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 yoga teacher training 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: 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.

Their deep understanding of anatomy and physiology of yoga is applied in the Yoga Synergy Yoga teacher training method.

In 1984, the doors of Yoga Synergy opened for the first time in Newtown, Sydney, with only two classes taught per week. Over 30 years later, Yoga Synergy has two studios – the original studio in Newtown and one in Bondi Junction, international teacher-trainer courses, acclaimed online courses, plus workshops taught worldwide.

The journey for Yoga Synergy founders, Simon Borg-Olivier and Bianca Machliss, began as a part-time venture, until 1993 when they decided to further embrace the yoga journey, since it was what they loved to do and were deeply passionate about. Simon and Bianca decided they would need to study more about the body, if they were to be the caretakers of other people’s bodies, and so they went back to university to study physiotherapy. While at university, the Yoga Synergy method was developed – a unique style of yoga that incorporates Eastern and Western knowledge, to provide students with a safe yoga practice that is both dynamic and meditative.

During their studies, Simon and Bianca also started the first ‘Applied Anatomy & Physiology of Yoga’ course, specifically for yoga teachers and practitioners, and wrote the book ‘Applied Anatomy & Physiology of Yoga’, which accompanies the course. (For more information see Applied Anatomy & Physiology of Yoga.) Simon and Bianca believe yoga is for every body, and that the world can become a better place through the experience of yoga. Simon travels the world teaching workshops and Yoga Teacher Trainings and Bianca manages the studio’s in Sydney and the Teacher Trainings.
