About Yoga Synergy:

Established by Simon Borg Olivier & Bianca Machliss in 1984, Yoga Synergy is one of Sydney’s largest and most respected yoga schools.

Our aim at Yoga Synergy is to teach the ancient art of yoga in a safe, fun and intelligent way. We teach students to practice responsively (not automatically) so that each practice fulfils the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of the individual practitioner, enhancing life force, energy and vitality.

Our unique style has been developed over 30 years by experienced yoga practitioners and physiotherapists Simon Borg-Olivier and Bianca Machliss. It incorporates asanas (poses and postures), vinyasa (exercises) and pranayama (breathing control) and meditation. It’s a dynamic, moving meditation, which links specific yoga postures performed in sequence, with specific breathing patterns.

Our style of yoga is very effective in developing strength, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, increasing energy and the ability to deal with stress. All postures have a simple and a more challenging version so – whether you’re a beginner or an advanced student, and depending on how you feel on the day – you’ll be able to choose the level of difficulty that suits you.
