YogaFit’s Community Service Mission

The mission of YogaFit® is to bring healing yoga to the masses. Yoga is a gift for the body and the mind.  When Beth Shaw created YogaFit®, she began by offering 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 teaching in a community service setting before receiving a Certificate of Completion, which also allows him or her the opportunity to teach in a less stressful environment with an appreciative audience.  That’s 8 hours of teaching, utilizing YogaFit®  Level I Teacher Training skills, to a group of people who normally do not have the opportunity to experience the benefits  of  yoga.  YogaFit®   Trainees  have brought the practice and benefits of YogaFit® to seniors in long-term care homes, disabled persons, incarcerated persons, the terminally ill, mentally challenged individuals, military servants, etc.  This Community Service Program gives us the opportunity to hone our skills in a casual environment while giving the gift of yoga to an appreciative group. It is truly a win-win situation for all involved and a benefit for our communities.

In order to complete the YogaFit®  Level I Teacher Training Program and receive a Certificate of Completion, each trainee must perform eight (8) hours of practice teaching within one year of their training date

Please click here for instructions to request a YogaFit® Certificate of Completion.  Have the following items ready for download:

  • A Personal Letter outlining and describing your community service experience.
  • Verification Letter on company letterhead (if applicable) from the facility where you completed your community service verifying the 8 hours taught. Letter must be signed by an official of that company.
