We are incredibly thrilled to have Francisco Morales-Bermudez join us on Sunday, February 14th for a partners workshop at Bikram Yoga NYC Flatiron! Francisco travels the world bringing his workshop to countries like Japan, Peru, Denmark, Morocco and Mexico and this will be the first time it’s being offered in NYC!
Please note this is an all-levels class and no previous partners yoga experience is necessary. Don’t have a partner to come with? That’s OK! Francisco will team you up with someone at the studio. Have questions? Email us!
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
All partner stretching, massage, strengthening, and flying techniques have tremendous healing and therapeutic benefits; physically and emotionally. Synergy classes teach these methods and techniques for people of all levels of ability.
WHAT’S A CLASS LIKE?
Each class consists of group circles, creative movement and warm up exercises, flying, partner stretches, strengthening exercises and thai massage. It is a 90 minute class and a space for students to slowly but consistently build on:
the physical skills of partner yoga:
flexibility, strength, massage techniques, balance, and partner-assisting skills
the energetic attributes of the practice:
trust, communication, playfulness, connection, listening, healing touch
While always inspiring a sense of community and unity.
Our philosophy emphasizes listening, compassion and understanding as important and essential pieces of the Synergy practice. Francisco is trained to listen to the needs of his students in order to understand and move at their level. Classes will aim to challenge your strength, flexibility, and communication skills in a healing environment.

Francisco Morales-Bermudez founded Synergy Partner Yoga in 2005. Since then his mission has been to share this practice in order to assist people in alleviating pain in their bodies, maintaining physical well-being and cultivating trust, connection and a playful vibration.
Francisco grew up in Lima, Peru where he spent time in the ocean, playing soccer and becoming intrigued with healing touch. His intrigue turned into a passion and for many years he studied and learned from different art forms and exercise systems.
Francisco studied: creative movement through afro-peruvian folkloric dances and performances & breakdancing yoga “School of Life” yoga ashram with Victor Landa, Bikram yoga, yoga with Dharma Mittra and Rusty Wells. He also studied capoeira angola (an afro-brazilian martial art) with Mestre Cobra Mansa healing touch & thai massage with Kam Thye Chow. These experiences contributed to the formation of Synergy Partner Yoga today.
Francisco discovered that by creating a practice that brought together aspects of the art forms he studied, cultivated the space for healing. A healing that affected people emotionally, physically and spiritually in a profoundly positive way. Seeing how this practice changed his life and how it built community, transformed the way people relate and interact with each other, he decided to make it his mission to share what he had learned with as many people as possible.
Today Synergy has traveled to homes, studios and families around the Globe. It continues to expand and touch peoples lives through the growing, dedicated Synergy Teacher family, supported and guided by Francisco. Francisco conducts workshops, classes, teacher trainings, and continues to learn, evolve and grow through developing Synergy Partner Yoga as well as from the people he meets and the places on his life journey.
