The Empowerment Center started as a vision in the minds of Yvette Bernosky and Susan Taiz where people could experience a holistic approach to health and fitness.  Rather than focusing on the physical only, they saw a need to incorporate the mind and spirit to reach the whole person.

In 2018 they opened a space behind Yvette's Health and Fitness Center and started holding seminars and workshops to help inspire people to look beyond just the physical aspect of their lives and embrace truly living from their authentic selves - and incorporate mind and spirit as well.

The Empowerment Center SRQ is also open to like-minded professionals who would like space to run seminars, workshops and classes. It is set up as a multi-functional room, either class room or informal living room style. It is perfect for one and one counseling sessions, support groups, book clubs, yoga classes and workshops and seminars of up to 20 people. 


If you would like to book the center, it is available on an hourly basis.  Please reach out to the Director, Susan Taiz, at theempowermentcentersrq@gmailcom, or fill in the form below.

Our rates are $25 per hour, or 50% of your event revenue, whichever is less, making it one of the best places in the heart of downtown Sarasota for your next event.
