SUP & YOGA Training Testimonials

What some of our students have said about our “SUP & Yoga Instructor Training”

I attended Tim & Vie’s SUP Training yesterdayit was a very professional training so informative on many issues that one would never think of . They obviously have a lot of experience behind them . If you are thinking of teaching YOGA ON A-PADDLE BOARD. Please do your students a favor and take this course. It could save lives . You must be aware of what could and does really happen out on the water. safety first. (T.O.H)

Spending an afternoon with 2 inspiring and enlightening yogis playing and learning and SUP’ing. Yoga is such an incredible way of letting go of our barriers and allowing us to look into what we might have otherwise thoughts was not possible. As we go down that path we discover that the people we met share are same fears, same ambitions and same ability to inspire others. Yoga has brought me to where I am this week and I want to share how inspired I am by @ask_tim_and_vie The passion, the fun, the support that they provide on a mat, in a classroom and on a SUP board is…….hmmmmm….. Freaking awesome!! @ask_tim_and_vie will you guys share #whyAigo as you are certainly one of the reasons I do! ?????? (J.F for SUP & Yoga Therapy Teacher Training in Private)

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! (during the SUP Guide Training) (J.C.W.)

Dear Tim and Vie, I wanted to write you both coming from a place of gratitude. On my world wide web search for a Standup Paddle Board Yoga teacher program I found your studio, Yoga Energy. As a Yoga teacher in Cincinnati,OH who loves water I was beyond excited to be taking your program, Standup Paddle board Yoga and Yoga Therapy. You had more teaching experience then any other studio and your training was on the ocean. Your professionalism has been on spot since my original emails with simple questions about the training, to follow up emails for guidance within the SUP Yoga world. Your knowledge of SUP Yoga and Yoga Therapy is incredible and vast. The way you share it is clear and if there is question you always have a well educated answer or explanation. You provided us with numerous different equipment options to use through out the course. Now that I have finished your program, I feel completely prepared to guide a Standup Paddle Board Yoga class/experience. I would be happy and confident in recommending this teacher training to anyone, even for your own personal practice. Congratulations to both of you for creating such an Incredible Program and with GRATITUDE, thank you for taking the time and energy to share it. (C.K.)

Much love and light, I learned so much, and the company was great! Let the season begin!! (a few months later, during the SUP & Yoga Therapy Training) (J.C.W.)

We did it! My class and I have graduated from SupnYoga Energy Peeps 200 hour Instructor training! It was such a beautiful experience and I am grateful for every moment of it! We all shared so much of ourselves and can now share Yoga with the world with the support of our communities! Thank you! Namaste. (S.O.)

In a hyphenated word: life-changing. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to take part in this training. Tim and Sylvie make an incredible team, balancing each other so well. I would have been perfectly happy with a week of SUP and Yoga but it turned out to be so much more than that. The incorporation of Ayurvedic theory made its truly special. Overall, this training has instilled in me a yearning to do great things with my new knowledge and skills. (E.J.B.)

The training lived up to every expectation. It was worth more than I could ever put into words or dollars. I am forever grateful for the education and the experience. Their awesome energy pulled all of us together, and they have given all of us the tools to be successful. I strongly, strongly, strongly recommend this training. If you’re not into yoga but interested in paddling, I strongly urge you to take the SUP Guide training. And visit these folks for a private paddle or lesson in St. Pete. Please. You’ll be better for it. (E.C.S.)

Thank you guys so much for this opportunity it’s been a truly amazing experience. I cannot thank you enough for getting me out on the beautiful water and teaching me all these valuable lessons we have learned the last few days. You guys are AWESOME, hope to cross paths again!!! (M.Z.)

Vie and her partner Tim taught an amazing training called Stand Up Paddle Yoga !! they are a great team very informative, the info was well delivered . If you are inspired to teach Paddle Board Yoga PLEASE TAKE THIS TRAINING. It is not as easy as one might think you really need to have the understanding of the safety behind you. This could save lives!!!!! (T.O.H)

Thank you Tim and Sylvie for caring to keep people safe on the water and spreading the love of the sport – day packed full of info! SUP-on! (L.D.)

My SUP Yoga Teaching Training in St. Pete with Yoga Energy Peeps was AWESOME! Thank you Tim and Sylvie for your wisdom and instruction and for sharing SUP Yoga. I love it and can’t wait to share it with Cape Coral. (K.B.)

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, (J.S. 3 months after her training)

Thanks for another awesome teacher training! I’m so inspired… (C.T.)

Thanks for the amazing weekend of SUP & Yoga Therapy training! I learned much more than just how to teach yoga on the board. Sylvie and Tim, your positive energies and generous spirits inspire me. ♥♥ (R.K.)

Thanks for the beautiful day. Sunshine, tranquility and renewed sense of purpose. I couldn’t be more thankful! (T.B.N.)

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. (T.B.N. 3 weeks later)

SUP yoga training rocked. Everyone should be a part of this amazing experience. Thanks to all the class mates, Tim, Sylvie, Candice and Jayne. Great to meet all of you. See you on the water! (J.V.D.)

Thank you Tim and Sylvie for another awesome sup yoga teacher training experience! I had a blast and loved this group of amazing teachers : ) (C.T.)

By 7:45 this morning my workday had fallen completely apart and fire drills were popping up everywhere; I checked my emails last night to be as prepared as possible but my anxiety levels were sky high and my day was deteriorating regardless. So I stopped for a minute and stood in my kitchen, going through a few rounds of the standing heating breath. And the world shifted and my perspective came back. I will share this with everyone I know to pay it forward (so more info to come), but in the meantime – Vie, I’m fairly certain by teaching me this tool you’ve saved my life. You’ve shown me a different path. You’re my Morpheus! I’ll realize it down the line, and probably more than once. Just telling you now because I’m a Project Manager and I like to cross items off my list. Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday, Everyone! And be sure to send thanks to someone who has saved your life and opened a new door for you. XOXOXO (E. C.-S.)

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! (L.B.)
