A & P course in Brisbane, Classes in Byron. 10 day feast!

 Noticeboard: work/life balance events sell out quickly hereSusan Wanmer writes ” Ok, perhaps I am biased because I have seen a fair bit of Simon Borg-Olivier‘s teaching, but he is Australia’s National Living Treasure of Yoga. Why does he deserve that title?
  1. 1. Simon has studied extensively in India with the masters. He embodies their teachings.
  2. The man is a scientist. Not satisfied with a science degree, he qualified and registered as a Physiotherapist, bringing us a wonderful collaboration of eastern and western training*.
  3. Let’s face it – he’s no spring chicken – having just had a birthday when I was last in Sydney at the last A & P weekend. Many of his peers can no longer continue at the level that Simon maintains. He continues at that level, because he understands how much strain and tension the human body can and cannot handle safely. “Simon Borg-Olivier: YogaSynergy
  4. Study with a master of science and a master of Yoga!

  5. A & P Intensive 21-30 November!

  6. There is a reason Simon is asked to lecture and demonstrate at cutting-edge Fitness Expos and to groups of doctors and health professionals. If you have an interest in the human body, either from a preventive or risk management form of exercise physiology, or treatment modalities such as sports medicine, musculo-skeletal practitioners,  yoga teachers/ students, you need to attend his Applied Anatomy and Physiology Seminars here in Brisbane to soak yourself in this treasure’s knowledge!

A & P Seminars: Details

Simon Borg-Olivier’s Applied anatomy and Physiology Course to Brisbane. Taught in Sydney for over 14 years, and from exotic locations around the world, he will give you 36 hours of training over two weekends seminars.

Dates: 21-23, and 28- 30 November 2008.

Times: Fridays 6 – 9 pm Saturday and Sunday 8.30 am – 5.30 pm.

Hosted by/ Enquiries: Susan Wanmer Yoga [Milton Yoga Studio]

Venue: ‘Old Museum Building’ Corner Gregory Tce and Bowen Bridge Rd Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, Queensland.

Cost: $797. (Those who have already attended a 36 hour A & P with Simon may repeat for half-price).

Pre-requisites: Simon demonstrates how the body moves. It is kinesthetic rather than simply yoga. He will teach the movement and range of movement (safe and unsafe) of the spine, hip and shoulder joints for example. That knowledge can be applied to yoga poses, all types of excercises, massage, personal trainers, and is useful for anyone interested in understanding the body from the inside. Therefore you do not need a prior knowledge of anatomy or physiology. Simon will use as many lay terms as possible. Nor do you need any prior yoga experience. If you would like to try some of the movements he demonstrates, you are welcome, but we encourage ‘observers’ to attend.

Simon’s Applied Anatomy and Physiology textbook is an excellant reference and you will see that it is referred to on this site. We would love you to own and have looked at a copy before attending, but it is not essential.
