what we teach
Yoga Synergy is modern yoga with a classical and anatomical twist. It’s less about crazy sequences and more about smart actions, intelligent movements and avoiding unnecessary physical stress. You could think of it as a more refined version of modern Vinyasa. The movements are more specific, the poses more purposeful, and the teaching style more intentional. There is a deep consideration given to the structure and alignment of each shape. Learn more about it here.
