Simon Borg-Olivier MSc BAppSc (Physiotherapy) is a Co-Director of Yoga Synergy, one of Australia’s oldest and most respected yoga schools. The Yoga Synergy style is based on a deep understanding of yoga anatomy, yoga physiology and traditional Hatha Yoga. Simon has been teaching since 1982. He is a registered physiotherapist, a research scientist and a university lecturer. Simon has been regularly invited to teach at special workshops and conferences interstate and overseas since 1990.

Suffice to say, Simon has led an extraordinary life. At the age of six, he was introduced to yogic breathing (pranayama) by his father George who taught him to swim underwater, and the main bandhas (internal locks) through a family friendship with Rhodesian Olympian Basil Brown. At the age of 17, he met a Tibetan Lama who introduced him to the philosophy and practice of Tantric Yoga. In 1985, Simon met his primary teacher Natanaga Zhander (Shandor Remete) with whom he studied for almost two decades. He has also studied with such internationally revered Indian teachers as BKS Iyengar, K. Pattabhi Jois and TKV Desikachar. Since 2007, Simon has been developing his yoga practice and understanding by studying with Master Zhen Hua Yang.

During the past 20 years, as well as running a successful yoga school, Simon has continued to both study and teach at the University of Sydney. Simon has completed a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology, a research-based Master of Science in Molecular Biology and a Bachelor of Applied Science in Physiotherapy. As well as teaching both group and individual classes through Yoga Synergy, Simon also teaches regularly at workshops and conferences both nationally and internationally. He lives in Sydney with his wife and fellow-yoga teacher Vitoria and their children Amaliah and Eric.


Bachelor of Science in Human Biology (1980)
Oki Yoga Teacher Training Certificate (1984)
Shiatsu Massage Certificate (1985)
Master of Science in Molecular Biology (1986)
Chinese Massage Certificate (1987)
Iyengar Teacher Training Certificate (1991)
Registered Physiotherapist (Bachelor of Applied Science) (1996)
Yoga Alliance Teacher Certification ERT500 (2010)


Early on, Simon and Bianca realized the importance of understanding the human body. Not only did they both return to university to become fully qualified physiotherapists, but together they developed Yoga Synergy’s Applied Anatomy & Physiology Course of Hatha Yoga – the only one of its kind – in conjunction with the unique Yoga Synergy style of yoga. This course is pivotal to the training of each Yoga Synergy teacher and is also attended by Yoga Synergy students, and yoga teachers and teachers-in-training from all styles of yoga.

In 2007, the couple was approached to turn this course into a tertiary course to be taught as part of the Integrative Applied Eastern Anatomy and Physiology taughtat Melbourne’s RMIT University. Simon and Bianca wrote the course and have both taught it to the university’s students. (Simon continues to be the course’s primary lecturer.) The course also forms part of a new internationally recognised degree, the Master of Wellness. The main textbook used is one that Simon and Bianca co-authored called Applied Anatomy and Physiology of Yoga.

Anthony Grim Hall (UK)


1. Lecture concerning Krishnamacharya’s heritage. Discussing Krishnamacharya’s life, his first books «Yoga Makaranda» (1934) and «Yogasanagalu» (1941) and how they evolved into Ashtanga Vinyasa Purple evening dresses of Pattabhi Jois but also looking for consistency with his later teaching.

2. Original Ashtanga vinyasa sequence based on «Yoga Makaranda». Led practice/workshop in the style of Krishnamacharya’s first books «Yoga Makaranda» and «Yogasanagalu». Appropriate for any level employing not so difficult asana but a stronger breath focus, slowing and lengthening the breath, employing breath retention (kumbhaka) longer stays.

3. Later Krishnamacharya – Vinyasa Krama asana sequence. Sort Evening Dresses
Pranayama, pratyahara, meditation. Krishnamacharya’s later work, Vinyasa krama, as taught by Srivatsa Ramaswami. Again, appropriate I hope for any level. The asana practice will be shorter to allow time for exploring pranayama and pratyahara as well as a little japa meditation practice.

These classes are in English.


Anthony Grim Hall (London). I first started practicing yoga in 2007 as a way of dealing with the anger of having my house burgled. I was in my mid forties over weight and not very flexible. I learnt through Ashtanga books from the local Library, and later from videos. I started a blog in 2008, Krishnamacharya Ashtanga Vinyasa Krama yoga at home, to share my home practice. Over the years the blog has become more historical and particularly an investigation, both in theory and practice of Krishnamacharya’s teaching. I have been coordinating and serialising a translation of Krishnamacharya’s second book, Yogasanagalu on the blog with the help of Kannada translator Satya Murthy. The blog has received almost 1,500,000 visits.
In 2010 I attended Srivatsa Ramaswami’s ( Krishnamacharya’s student for 33 years) Vinyasa krama teacher training course.
In 2011 I Self-Published a book, The Complete Vinyasa Yoga Practice Book aimed at developing a home Vinyasa yoga practice.
Since 2009 I have attempted, through my writing and practice to find consistency in Krishnamacharya’s teaching from the early years of Ashtanga Vinyasa through to the later years of Vinyasa Krama.

Dearbhla Kelly (USA)



1. Ancient Practice, Modern Insights: Yoga and the Science of the Self?. Asanas, kriyas, pranayama are some of the techniques of hatha yoga mentioned in the 15C Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Contemporary science confirms the importance of these practices for our physical health, energetic resilience, and psychic wellbeing. We will begin with a brief discussion of the science behind why these practices work so well, followed by a physical practice beginning with pranayama and abdominal kriyas, and move into a stabilizing and energetizing vinyasa practice. Be prepared to leave feeling rejuvenated and expansive. Lecture & Practice.

2. The Art of Backbends. Backbends are highly beneficial energetically, emotionally and physiologically: from stretching the upper body, decompressing the lumbar spine and encouraging deep diaphragmatic breathing, to feeling exhilarated and open-hearted. Just as the tree needs roots that are anchored deeply in the earth to soar towards the sky, deep backbends need structural support from the trunk of the body. Sweetness and ease (sukha) in backbends require stability (sthiram), which comes from abdominals, thighs and bandhas.
We will take a close look at the structural components of backbending: how to use the abdominals, and muscles of the inner thighs and pelvic floor. We will also address mula and uddiyana bandhas, the more subtle components of achieving a safe and deep backbend. Focusing on stability and grace will make way for ease. Prepare to go deep and leave feeling open, bright, and smiling from your lotus heart. Practice.

3. Flooded with Joy. Your brain contains a network of neurons, incomparably vast, with more connections than are stars in the Milky Way. Lit up, this luminous filigree would dazzle all within its sights. The threads of this delicate web are pulsing with shimmering molecules, tiny packets of ecstasy, spreading their dharma of delight. Deep breathing stimulates a cascade of bliss molecules to light up every fibre of your being; practicing asana and pranayam your body becomes a field of radiant sensation.
Our vinyasa flow practice will be a moving meditation on the breath as we flow from surya namaskar to standing poses, deep forward folds, twists and exultant backbends. We will sing the body electric and breathe the body of bliss. Come celebrate your senses! Practice.

These classes are in English.

Oleg Yevsyeyev (pronounced Yev’say’yev’) follows in the footsteps of his Ukrainian mother, Olga, who was a successful yoga teacher at a time and in a country where yoga was a new art form. As a child, Oleg was a natural athlete. He excelled in many sports, medaling in swimming, judo, and taekwondo in regional, national, and international competitions. His career in athletics was cut short, however, by a serious shoulder injury, and he was forced to abandon the more traditional forms of athletics in which he had shown such promise.
As his yoga career blossomed, he found success conducting private and group classes in the Ukraine. In partnership with his mother, he formed the first Tri Yoga Center in Ukraine, and he traveled around the world teaching and lecturing in Spain, Israel, China, Australia, Italy, Great Britain, Turkey, Egypt, Russia and the United States.

He appeared on television in the Ukraine and in China teaching yoga classes on morning programs. In 1993, Oleg began to study under his most important teacher – the woman who would influence him the most.

The highly acclaimed, international yoga master, Kali Ray formed a close mentoring relationship with Oleg; whenever visiting the combined nations of the Soviet Union, she used Oleg as her class demonstrator because of his exceptional strength flexibility and graceful form.

Today Oleg Flow (as he now calls himself) lives a blessed life of daily reflection and routine Yoga practice in the golden hills of Southern California overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Throughout his learning and mastering of Yoga over the years, Oleg has developed and continued to refine his own carefully constructed yoga system for treating addiction, anxiety, depression, which crystallized in 2011 into the practice that he now calls “Kurma Yoga.”

Oleg is currently employed as Master Yoga Teacher at the Malibu Beach Recovery Center, a cutting-edge alcohol and drug treatment center, where he is able to promote the benefits of the system that he has spent his life creating to clients who didn’t know there could be a wholesome, natural solution to their chronic, emotional problems. His certainty that the essential, proper breathing technique is the core of a successful yoga practice and creates a profound relationship between body, mind and spirit has inspired not only addicts, but people suffering from emotional, mental and physical conditions and various forms of self destructive behavior to change their lives and experience what once seemed an elusive dream – simple, daily happiness.

Oleg offers group and individual classes in Malibu and throughout the greater Los Angeles area. He teaches different levels of yoga emphasizing breathing, gentle flowing movements, working to restore connective tissue, stimulate deep muscle growth and enhance strength and endurance. His use of dynamic and static flow-yoga combined with controlled, correct breathing, all lead to increased strength, flexibility and profound focus. He frequently travels, appearing as a Guest Teacher at conferences, workshops and yoga retreats where he demonstrates to other professional yoga teachers the remarkable benefits of proper breathing in combination with a regular yoga practice.

Ilya Zhuravlev: «After I got a Master’s Degree in Philosophy at the Russian State University for the Humanities (Moscow), I started teaching yoga, visiting India and spending a lot of time there.

My first yoga-teacher was Jayakumar Swamishri from Mysore. He taught in the tradition of Swami Kuvalayananda and Bangalore Yoga Institute, giving classes at the Indian Embassy in Moscow for several years. I started my practice with him in 1995-96. At the end of the 90’s I also started practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga with Igor Mededev and the seminars of Andrey Sidersky and Andrey Lappa, yoga teachers from Ukraine. In 1999 was one of the founders of Moscow Ashtanga Yoga Center and became one of its leading teachers.

My first trip to India was in 2001. There I practiced in Morarji Desai National Yoga Institute in Delhi (Dhirendra Brahmachari’s school) under the personal supervision of Bal Mukund Singh. In the same year I continued the practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga in Mysore with B.N.S. Iyengar (Bramatantra Parakala Mutt). It was in this hall on the second floor of Hayagriva Temple where Shri T. Krishnamacharya (BNS Iyengar’s teacher) taught in the 30’s. I also practiced Ashtanga Vinyasa with V.Sheshadri (Mysore Mandala Yogashala). Since then I have been visiting India every year, spending several months there. In 2003 I started studying at Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute and my teachers were Shri K. Patabhi Jois and R.Sharath.

In addition to this, I attended the classes of Yogacharya Gopala Krishna in Bangalore, classes in ashrams of Rishikesh (Yoga Niketan Ashram, Yogashala of Swami Samarpananda Saraswati from Bihar school) and Pondicherry (Swami Gitananda Ashram). I studied shatkarmas, pranayamas and meditation in the tradition of Sivananda Yoga with Doctor Madhavan Munusamy (Vivekananda Yoga Therapy Institute, Tamil Nadu), who granted me a certificate in 2006. I accomplished a training course in Sivananda Yoga Ashram (2008, Neyar Dham, Kerala). I have participated in the intensive training courses by Shandor Remete (“Shadow Yoga”), Kali Ray (“Tri Yoga”), Gabriella Giubilaro (Iyengar Yoga), David Swenson (accomplished a certification course in 2010), Mark and Joanne Darby (Canada), Andrey Lappa (teacher training course in 2004, “Universal Yoga”, intermediate level).

I am familiar with Tibetan styles of asana practice (Yantra Yoga in the tradition of Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, taught by Fabio Andrico; Trul Khor in the tradition of Yundrung Bon, taught by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche). I accomplished David Frowley’s course “Yoga and Ayurveda” (American Institute of Vedic Studies). I am practicing kriya yoga in the tradition of Lahiri Mahasai (taught by Shri Shailendra Sharma, Govardhan)» Ilya is certified hypnotherapist and Past Life Regression therapyst, completed course with Rifa Hogson (Canada), certified teacher of Michael Newton Institute.

For the first time I was interested in yoga in 1997 when I started to practice yoga in Iyengar Yoga Center in Moscow with Sergey Mikhailov (Senior Intermediate 2) and Inna Mashyanova (Junior Intermediate 3).

Every evening: kirtan on the beach around fireplace.

Kirtan is collective singing of mantras and bhajans (Indian devotional songs). Its inspiring and positive happening – you can just listern, you can sing, you can play instruments.
