YogaFit (“Yoga for the Fitness Industry”™) was developed in 1994 by Beth Shaw. After practicing yoga since 1989 and taking several certifications, Beth began teaching at fitness clubs in Los Angeles. She soon discovered that while traditional certifications taught a lot about the history and philosophy of yoga, they did not address the challenges of teaching yoga in a health club: bright lights, cold rooms, bodies of all types and flexibility levels. She created her own style that combined fitness moves such as push-ups, sit-ups and squats with traditional yoga postures linked together in a flowing format. To make practice more a more “user-friendly” style, she eliminated Sanskrit names of postures and avoided the ohming and chanting sometimes associated with traditional yoga practices.

In 1997, Shaw produced her first teacher training in Fargo, ND with 26 fitness instructors from four different YMCAs. Now in North America alone, YogaFit completes more than 800 training programs per year, run by a core group of 65 highly trained experts. It also has a expanding training, retreat and conference business with a growing presence in multiple countries including Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Egypt, China, Southeast Asia, and Germany.
