This program was developed to help personal trainers incorporate yoga into their one-on-one sessions. Trainers can use yoga postures as their primary training method, or just incorporate it into the beginning and/or end of their weight training session. Finally, and not to be underestimated, Trainers can incorporate YogaFit's Transformational Language® into the work with their clients to encourage and motivate clients through positive/affirmative language that incorporates awareness and process orientation.

Teaching Include:
• Foundational alignment principles (SPA) for yoga drawn from exercise science for safety, while preserving
   the effectiveness and traditional form of the poses.
• Precise alignment for the most effective and widely-used 38 basic postures of yoga.
• Transformational Language for motivation and mind/body awareness
• To assess your client's need for postures based on range of motion (ROM), postural assessment, and muscle
    balance, using a technique we call Asana Practice Screen (APS).
• How you might incorporate foundational standing poses/asanas as a base strength stance for the legs, while
    using weights for the upper body, for a combination training method that is highly effective (Warrior 1
    stance with bicep curls).
• YogaFit Essence to create a mind/body experience, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and RETAIN CLIENTS
    because they feel great!
• The importance of breath and relaxation for stress reduction for overall health, and how to incorporate
    breath effectively into your sessions.
