YogaFit® The world's leading yoga training school est. 1994.
The mission of YogaFit is to bring healing yoga to the masses. Yoga is a gift for the body and the mind and began by offering yoga classes for donation only. We believe that if everyone in the world gave one hour per week of community service work, the world be a better place. We require every YogaFit Level One trainee to perform 8 hours of practice yoga teaching in a community service setting before receiving a Certificate of Completion, which also allows him or her the opportunity to teach yoga in a less stressful environment with an appreciative audience.
Our trainees have brought the practice and benefits of Yoga to seniors in long-term care homes, disabled persons, incarcerated persons, the terminally ill, mentally challenged individuals and military servants. The Community Service Program gives trainees the opportunity to practice their new yoga teaching skills in a less demanding setting with an enthusiastic audience.
