YogaSynergy: Fundamentals of Spinal Movements with Toni WESTAWAY


YogaSynergy sequences develop strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness, increase energy, and enhanced ability to deal with stress.



YogaSynergy was established in 1984 by physiotherapists Bianca Machliss and Simon Borg-Olivier. This is not a “style” of yoga as much as it is an approach to all ways of practicing yoga - based on a deep and sound knowledge of anatomy and physiology, modern medical science and traditional hatha yoga.

YogaSynergy methodology is informed by the work of Professor T. Krishnamacharya- the teacher of three very influential yoga masters: Sri B.K.S. Iyengar; Sri K. Pattabhi Jois; and Sri T.K.V. Desikachar.

The unique YogaSynergy way of practicing includes asana, vinyasa, pranayama and meditation. The YogaSynergy sequences develop strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness, increase energy, and enhance the ability to deal with stress.

YogaSynergy Fundamentals of Spinal Movements workshop

Toni Westaway has been practicing and teaching YogaSynergy for 8 years. The focus of this workshop is:

  • the spine, arms, legs and breath and how use these effectively
  • how the movement of upper and lower limbs effect the spine and overall energy of your yoga asana practice

Toni will demonstrate and teach a deeper understanding that will improve not only your physical asana practice, but also your fitness, core stability, circulation, digestive system and the overall health of your heart and lungs.

Toni's love affair with yoga began when she found a faded piece of paper with some yoga postures and exercises on it.

Even back then, with little guidance and only a rudimentary idea of what she was supposed to be doing, Toni discovered that the power of yoga lies in its ability to transform your perspective, habits and mental state - for the better.

Her approach to yoga is this: that the function of yoga asana is to bring about an awareness of connection within yourself, in a way that is playful, curious and challenging at the same time. She teaches and practices with careful consideration of sound anatomic and physiotherapy principles to ensure that your yoga asana practice is safe and balanced. 

She completed her first yoga teacher training in 2008 with Jim Harrington. Since then she has advanced her studies with Jim Harrington, Simon Borg-Olivier, Shimon Ben Avi, Raghavendra Adiga-ji and Budokon University. She teaches yoga asana, meditation, yoga philosophy and Budokon Yoga.
