About Us

Our Reason for Being

Synergy is a healing art form that fine tunes and strengthens the human body and spirit through playful movement, thai massage, dynamic body conditioning, therapeutic partner yoga and meditation. Synergy draws from many traditional healing modalities and art forms- from traditional Thai massage, yoga, martial arts, clown, and ancient meditation practices.

At Synergy we aim to use the resources we have—our business, our work, our voice and our imaginations—to bring the various healing art forms we have expertise in, to our communities, including yoga studios throughout the world. Our mission is to give yoga studios the resources to host retreats, workshops, teacher trainings and various other programs. We want to support them to realize their potential and thrive.

Core Values

Our values reflect those of a business started by people on the ground working one on one with other people. Our common bond is garnered by an interest in building trust, promoting healing, inspiring playfulness and connection with studios and communities that we serve everywhere.

Not Bound by Convention

Our success—and much of the fun—lies in developing fresh ideas and unique ways to do the things we love. Let’s work together and use our imaginations
