YogaFit YogaBarre

YogaFit YogaBarre is a fun and functional way to create a balanced body, mind and spirit. Utilizing principles of yoga, ballet barre, pilates, strength training and dance allows for a complete integration of fitness modalities for well-being. We utilize a barre or chair to provide stability, balance, and support as we move through exercises that target the core, glutes, arms, and legs. The major benefits are improved posture, muscle definition, weight loss, increased mobility, and reduced stress.The YogaFit Yoga Barre program helps individuals to become stronger and feel better as they perform their everyday activities.  The program is based not only on muscle balancing, but also on balancing the common postural and movement patterns we create in our daily lives. 

The average American adult spends at least 6.5 hours sitting every day and the number is higher for teenagers, according to the Washington Post (The Big Number: The average U.S. adult sits 6.5 hours a day. For teens, it’s even more. Linda Searing April 28, 2019).  This means many Americans are moving through their day with forward head posture, rounded shoulders, a lack of natural curves in the spine and a chronically tight front line.  YogaFit Yoga Barre can provide individuals with a movement practice they will enjoy at the time and for years to come. YogaFit Yoga Barre is also one of the fastest, most effective ways to burn calories and get toned.  Your students will love the functionality, fitness and fun they will experience every time they show up on their mat!

YogaFit Restorative

YogaFit’s four­-day Restorative workshop is essential for the yoga therapist to understand how to introduce the profoundly soothing effects of this restful practice to clients and students. Using props to completely support the body, restorative yoga creates passive poses that induce a deep state of relaxation, awaken dull areas of the body, and encourage the body’s innate ability to heal itself.

Note: This course fulfills part of the requirements for the YogaFit 300‐hour teacher training. The one-day YogaFit Props training is part of this four-day workshop. However, please note that you will NOT receive a separate Props Certificate when registered for the four day Restorative Training.  To receive a Props certificate, it must be taken as a one day training at a different time.

More and more athletes are adding yoga to their workout regimen so they can feel stronger, more balanced and single-­minded in their pursuit of their own personal best.

YogaFit Props

Tight shoulders, hamstrings or hips can prevent even the most seasoned student from experiencing comfort and ease while doing yoga or even moving through the world. By reducing muscular effort and encouraging proper alignment, effective use of yoga props—blocks, blankets, bolsters, straps and even chairs—helps everyone to feel successful and enjoy the full benefits their practice.

YogaFit Yin Yoga

YogaFit’s two day Yin Yoga training focuses on the other areas of our body often not considered in most yoga practices or fitness modalities. We are focused on the deeper tissues of our body: bones, joints, fascia and ligaments.  All of our tissues are important and need to be exercised so that we can achieve optimal health and vitality.  Throughout the training, we consistently work on surrendering to the pose, finding a sense of comfort through discomfort, learning to celebrate the stillness, while connecting with mindfulness.
