'Yoga for Everybody and EVERY BODY'
TORONTO, May 7, 2014 /CNW/ - GoodLife Fitness, Canada's largest fitness
company and YogaFit, the world-wide leader in Yoga education are
expanding their collaboration from coast-to-coast in Canada.
YogaFit takes a unique approach to yoga unlike any other yoga company
world-wide, where they are focused on offering yoga for "everybody and every body." Everyone, from those brand new to the practice to those who are
proficient in sophisticated yoga movements can have an exceptional
experience in a YogaFit Class. This approach is a great match for
GoodLife's commitment to providing No Judgment Clubs where everybody is welcome. This new collaboration removes the
intimidation that can be experienced by those that have never tried
yoga before, while at the same time giving experienced yogis an
incredible yoga experience.
YogaFit® which stands for "Yoga for the Fitness Industry"™ was
originally developed in 1994 in California. In 2011, GoodLife Fitness
collaborated with YogaFit to bring the inclusive and popular classes to
Canada. GoodLife will now be offering YogaFit classes, which include
the traditional YogaFit®, YogaFit Sweat® and YogaCore®, at more than 75 GoodLife Fitness locations across Canada. To find a
YogaFit® class at a GoodLife near you, visit: www.goodlifefitness.com/findaclass.aspx.
"Everyone at YogaFit is thrilled to be expanding our offerings at
GoodLife Fitness locations," says Beth. "For 35 years, GoodLife
Fitness has been the premiere health-club chain in Canada. Even though
GoodLife has expanded nationally, they still cater to the individual
and look after one member at a time. YogaFit shares GoodLife's approach
and values, making it a very natural decision to grow our partnership."
"GoodLife Fitness is very excited to expand our offering of YogaFit
classes across Canada," says Maureen Hagan, GoodLife Fitness Vice
President of Operations- Group Exercise. "Beth has created one of the
world's leading yoga programs which combines fitness moves with
traditional yoga postures. This format is ideal for all fitness and
ability levels. YogaFit® classes will allow even more GoodLife members
the opportunity to improve their level of fitness, health and mental
