YogaFit, one of the largest training institutes of mind/body fitness education in the US, this month launched a national community outreach program designed to help at-risk groups and individuals take back control of their health with — what else? — yoga. 

The concept is to partner with those non-profit groups focusing on various health issues in the US. Issues such as obesity, diabetes, cancer and eating disorders, among others, will be addressed. In addition to free yoga classes, YogaFit will provide educational tools to help these at-risk groups better manage their lifestyle.
The Children's Institute and YMCA Host First Sessions
YogaFit will host the first free training for The Children's Institute, Inc. in Torrance, California, at the YMCA. The Children's Institute works with at-risk children and their families in Los Angeles County.
The YogaFit style tightens and tones the entire body, enhances balance, improves flexibility and builds core strength by combining traditional fitness training, focused breathing and strength building through yoga poses. The result is a mind-body workout that improves health, athletic performance and mental acuity in people of all ages and fitness levels. 

The YogaFit community outreach program will provide free classes to groups in need and offer additional tools such as YogaFit DVDs, books and seminars to educate about the importance of yoga in improving community health.
