TM – Best feeling in the world…when your yoga class claps at the end of your practice together. I guess I had a good teacher… Vie Binga

JB – Yoga Energy studios provides the BEST workout available! TRUST ME! I’ve been a loyal member for over 4 years. I took a break one year foolishly thinking I could get a better workout elsewhere. I’ve tried the boring gym routine, CrossFit, Pilates, aerobics, fitness videos and I have even tried running and training for 5ks thinking that would get me in tip top shape and toned. I was WRONG! After my thorough research I can say with great confidence that my body responds the best to Yoga Energy studios yoga classes. I swear I notice results after just one class! I’m completing the 6 week bootcamp this week and I can’t thank Vie Binga enough for getting me bikini body ready this year! I easily lost 10 lbs and went down almost 2 dress sizes! In less than a year I turn 30 and will also be getting married. With the help of YOGA ENERGY STUDIO I know I will be in the best shape of my life! I couldn’t be happier! Thank you!!!!

JW – Thank you soooo much Sylvie and Tim for so generously sharing your expertise during the SUP Guide Instructor Certification. You both are true professionals with big hearts. I look forward to the next time we meet!

KSJ – I am very glad I participated in the SUP Instructor 1 Class. Safety is so important when you are out on a vessel of any type on the water. I can’t wait for their next training practice. Thanks, V & Tim for all you are doing.

LB – To those who are pondering the Guide SUP Training Class – please do not hesitate and sign up for the upcoming sessions. I took the course today and had a great time while learning valuable skills & techniques. Tim and Sylvie are highly informative instructors that blend professionalism with class perfectly (all while making it very fun with no pretense). Thanks again for a very groovy day on the water. Kudos and best wishes to those who are continuing the sup/yoga course through the weekend!

SC – Dear Sylvie and Tim, Thank you for a wonderful SUP & YOGA experience at Yoga Energy Studio! I am so grateful to know there are people like both of you who embrace “classic” yoga style and embrace the art and science behind YOGA & SUP too!

TBN – (3 weeks later) You don’t know how bad I would love to be there! ENJOY! Thanks again Tim and Silvie for the most amazing 4days in SUP Yoga training! I miss you guys.

JS (2 months after her training) – Looking at these pictures brings back good memories…. good luck to all new teachers! You picked the BEST to learn from!

JS (3 months after her training) – Hi Silvie and Tim, since I am back from the teacher training things are going just fantastic for me and thePaddlesUp. You both have been the ones that taught us not only how to teach but very important, got us awesome advice on the business part. I just want to let you know that I am very thankful for what you have created and you keep inspiring me every day.
If our season in Michigan would be longer than 3 months there would be no question in my mind to do this full time. But until I figure out what to do with the remaining 9 month, I am just taking this business to balance the demand of my regular job. If you have new things coming up I want to be on your first training sessions!!! All the best for both you, Janina

ES – Interested in taking teacher training with YOGA ENERGY STUDIO? I just finished their 200 hour Yoga & Ayurveda Therapy and can say this was one of the best experiences of my life. The Yoga Energy Studio has a combined knowledge and experience in yoga that is hard to find and they pass that on to their students. You are taught all aspects of what yoga encompasses, physical, mind and nutrition. Two days of training were on a beautiful island, what gets better than learning on an island. They teach you how to teach yoga to everyone and anyone. Throughout the training you get to teach what you have learned from day to day, keeping the information fresh and relevant to the days learning. For me, never having taught yoga, it allowed me to gain experience and confidence before completing the training.

They teach that simplicity, honesty and ethical businesses practices create a professionalism in the industry. They teach you that whether you plan on just teaching for someone or having your own business, after you go through their training you will have the practice and knowledge to do it. Any training Yoga Energy Studio has to offer is well sought out information. They take teaching to a higher level. I highly recommend taking any training they have to offer.

CT – I cannot say enough about my yoga teacher training experience at YES. It exceeded my expectations for so many reasons. Tim and Sylvie are extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of yoga, and I feel so fortunate to have been able to learn from their extensive experience. It meant so much to me that they are such authentic people, truly living a yoga lifestyle. I learned so much about myself through the experience, and I met some great friends along the way. Whether you are interested in learning to teach, gain a broader perspective of yoga, deepen your personal practice, or just discover more about yourself, I recommend teacher training at YES. It was definitely one of the best experiences of my life !

LC – Thank you for the phenomenal training you gave me! I already miss everyone and will think of you often. Looking forward to keeping in touch and completing my 300 hour Teacher Training with you in the future and continuing with my Ayurveda training. Namaste!

LC – (less than 3 months later) I’ve had several people to ask me where I received my training. Sure do wish you two could come over here and train up some people. My classes are going well and I’m glad you showed us how to maximize space with the classes. The other day I couldn’t have fit another person in the room. Hope all is well!

SR – My Dearest Sylvie, My class this morning was beyond words! I remembered the story you told us about the time that one woman showed up for class and you still did the class, even though she would’ve understood if you had cancelled. One woman showed up to my class and I treated it the same way, with positivity. She just called me. She wants to cancel her YMCA membership and train 3-4 days a week with me because of how amazing her hip feels! She also wants to do group sessions with her husband and friends. I am so thankful to you and Tim for being such wonderful role models for me and your genuine concern for us receiving the proper knowledge. I will always remember the valuable life lessons you two taught us! My Endless Thanks,
Sarah :-)

NA – The best Yoga Teacher Training one could wish for!
Some people have asked me as to where I got my yoga certification and if I was pleased. I was certified through YogaEnergyStudio (YES). They have an AMAZING teacher training program. Their curriculum exceeds expectations! The size of the class is limited so that people received more personalized attention. The tools and techniques used are both practical and easy to follow. I have been in the yoga industry for a long time and It has taken on a whole new meaning since completing my latest certification @ YES. Yoga & Ayurveda Therapy has given me a foundation to a whole new approach to life. Just like they say: “We believe that yoga and Ayurved are every one’s birthright ” Thank you YOGA ENERGY STUDIO!

CK – wow! What a wonderful experience. Sylvie and Tim are awesome. The 200 Yoga Teacher training was amazing! I have learned so much more than I expected and I met such wonderful people with spectacular hearts….And most importantly, I had fun while learning. Thank you both, May you both have peace, joy, and love, Carolyn

CK (1 year later, while sharing our Teacher Training link) – People always compliment my teaching Yoga skills. this is where I received my wonderful education! You can be taught by the best also.

CM – Thank you so much for sharing all your knowledge with us. What I learned from you guys has forever changed the way I look at yoga (in a VERY good way). Your emphasis on anatomy and science within every aspect of yoga has opened up a whole new world for me… that I never imagined. I am SO glad that somehow I ended up in St. Petersburg, FL all the way from Montana… I’m beginning to understand how MEANT it was for me to end up here… as unplanned as it was. Namaste…

AC – The past 20 days have been awesome. I grew mentally, physically, and spiritually. Thank you Nice Alberts and Yoga Jayne for your encouragement. Thank you Tim and Sylvie for inviting me into your home and studio, and for sharing your knowledge and love of Yoga with me. I am truly grateful.

LC – The Level 1 30 hour Ayurveda class will educate you on the big picture of Ayurveda. When you are ready to become healthier this is the class to start with. When they offer the next class, take it. Sylvie Binga embodies what a great teacher is! You don’t just get educated, you get educated by someone who knows Ayurveda from the heart and lives Ayurveda.

AK – After completing your Level 1 Ayurveda Therapy Course this weekend I would like to commend you for this excellent experience! Sylvie’s extensive knowledge and clear, concise teaching style made the information very comprehensible; I left with so much valuable information and practical tools I can start implementing immediately to enhance my life. I highly recommend this outstanding course to anyone who would like to live a happy, more balanced life. Thank you!

SM – Attending the Ayurveda Therapy Level 1 course taught by Sylvie at Yoga Energy Studio was a great experience. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in health and balance in their life. Sylvie is a wonderful teacher and her high level of expertise with the subject is obvious. The course provides a lot of information that she delivers in a manner that makes it very understandable, and in a comfortable setting with time allowed for questions and discussion. The experience has provided me with many tools to use in improving the quality of life for myself and my family. As I have made changes, I am excited by the positive results and I look forward to continuing. Thank you!

MB – Yoga Energy Studio has really opened my eyes with yoga. I am currently undergoing teacher training there and Tim and Sylvie are wonderful teachers and role models! Their hot yoga classes are like nothing I have ever taken before! You always get an amazing workout and feel refreshed, energized and rejuvenated when you leave. They keep the routines fresh and they also keep them within reason for most people whether beginner or advanced at yoga. I would recommend anyone to try a class at YES- You’ll be hooked! :) -Molly Bernas

AM – My experience with YES has changed my life. Everything from the teacher training to the day to day classes are simply wonderful. I am so glad I found a place where I can grow into myself and my yoga practice. I LOVE YES and believe that everyone should experience it for themselves.

JS – The Hot Flow class at Yoga Energy Studio is amazing! Tim and Sylvie are great teachers, and extremely patient with beginners like I was. I was hooked after my first class and have a difficult time thinking about going anywhere else. And for donation-only, it’s more than well worth the drive over the bridge.

Tim and Sylvie are wonderfully supportive, honest teachers who care about each and every student. I am eternally blessed to have been given the opportunity to participate in their program. Thank you again!!! Peace & Love, Joel

JLM – YES teacher training has been inspiring. Compared to other teacher training that I have experienced, it comes out on top. Tim’s expertise in yoga and fitness and Sylvie’s expertise in yoga and Ayurveda combine to provide a unique opportunity to learn, share and grow, no matter your level. Yoga Energy Studio is leading the way in St. Petersburg. A one of a kind studio!

PC – For the past year I have been attending classes here at Yoga Energy Studio. I feel incredibly lucky to have found them! I had never practiced yoga before and they have allowed me to slowly progress – at my own tempo. I am now a loyal ‘grasshopper’! Tim, Sylvie – Thanks for your careful teaching and inspiration, I highly recommend to both experienced and beginning yoga enthusiasts!

NB – Coming from a military background, I have to say the Hot Core class Saturday morning was one of the most intense workout’s I’ve ever gotten to do. It worked every muscle in my body and had me drenched in sweat. I HIGHLY recommend it.

JC – I have been strength training with Karen for over a year know. I have become stronger and I feel great. She really knows how to make me sweat. And to add to this I practice the hot core. I am a new man.

nuances. Sylvie and Tim truly care about their students. They assess your potential and help you get the most out of your practice. Plus, the yoga boot camps and KaYoga rock!
