The mission of YogaFit is to bring healing yoga to the masses. Yoga is a gift for the body and the mind. We believe that if everyone in the world gave one hour per week of community service work, the world be a better place. That is why everyone who completes our YogaFit Level 1 yoga teacher training is required to complete 8 hours of practice yoga teaching free of charge in a community service setting before receiving a certificate of completion. Our trainees have brought the practice and benefits of yoga to seniors in long-term care homes, stressed-out corporate executives, cancer patients and survivors, disabled persons, incarcerated persons, the terminally ill, special needs individuals, and military personel just to name a few. The Community Service program gives trainees the opportunity to practice their new teaching skills in a less stressful environment with an appreciative audience. As the thousands of letters we receive in our corporate office state, volunteering time and energy has proven to be the most rewarding experience for many of our students completing our yoga teacher training programs. YogaFit is dedicated to this work as it promotes the essence of giving and sharing freely.
YogaFit encourages and supports the philosophy of “Conscious Business.” We believe that socially responsible companies prosper from good will and good Karma. Together we are changing the paradigm of what it means to do good business.
