Katherine Roberts leads Yoga for Golfers instructional seminar in Tampa

Yoga for Golfers (YFG) Founder and Nike Golf Swoosh Elite Member Katherine Roberts, will present a comprehensive 3-and-a-half day certified teacher training program to interested yoga instructors, PGA and LPGA golf professionals, and fitness instructors in Tampa, FL on Nov. 6-10, 2013.

Held at Tampa's prestigious Cheval Golf & Country Club at a special YFG rate of $850, Roberts will instruct participants on her specialized training program which incorporates a mind-body approach to golf fitness. She will also focus on the correlation (and benefits) of yoga as it applies specifically to golf performance.

Roberts' revolutionary program will provide participants with a unique opportunity to receive personal training and instruction in Tampa, YFG's first certification program in the Southeast. In addition to providing business expansion opportunities and potential revenue streams for participants, other benefits include insight on marketing strategies for specific target audiences and use of YFG's marketing materials and products. Certified instructors will be eligible for listing on Roberts' Yoga for Golfers website as a certified YFG teacher, increasing exposure from the numerous instructor inquiries received annually.

While no prior golf experience is required, YFG program participants will spend practice time on the driving range as they stay "in-check" with the program's overview on basic golf swing mechanics.

"With more than 29 million golfers in the U.S., and with the state of Florida ranked at the top of the list when it comes to number of golf courses, we are excited to bring our program to the Southeast," stated Katherine Roberts, founder of Yoga for Golfers. "We look forward to working with the yoga, golf, health and fitness communities in Florida to help expand their business offerings."

Roberts is a 20-year veteran in fitness training and yoga studies and is a golf fitness performance coach. As president of Yoga for Golfers she has developed a unique approach to golf conditioning, combining western biomechanical research and eastern mind-body conditioning to enhance performance. As the #1 yoga and golf fitness expert worldwide, Roberts also serves as a yoga fitness instructor for MLB teams. In addition, she is a Golf Magazine fitness panel expert and the Director of Teacher Training for Peak Performance Yoga.
