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.
Thank you for your support in the YogaFit® Program and good luck in your teaching career!
