Simon Borg-Olivier is an amazing incredible yoga teacher / therapist! The way he combines movement is gentle enough to be an example of the ‘yoga sutra 2.46 sthira sukham asanam’ the connection to the earth should be steady and joyful. It’s a joy doing yoga with Simon’s instruction. I didn’t feel tension in my body yet I built enough heat without a rising of my heart rate and built a light sweat that wasn’t overwhelming.
Simon’s approach to teaching as a therapist with his physiotherapist amazing insights has been very healing for an old shoulder injury that tweaks a little now and then. The way he instructs to move the body with the spiritual aspects is very nourishing for the body, mind and soul as I’ve been teaching yoga since 2008, it’s wonderful to learn Simon’s techniques as when we glide gently into more advanced poses, it feels more natural and not forced. When we move or glide into the more challenging poses, it flows with fluidity, into the joints and spine, all coming from the core. I’m very grateful to have Simon in my life, combining deep spiritual aspects with the practice as well.
