Yoga for Golfers Teacher Training program in Edinburgh, Scotland

Yoga for Golfers (YFG) is planning its first Teacher Training program in Edinburgh, Scotland, October 17-20, 2013. This comprehensive three-and-a-half day program will be taught by Yoga for Golfers Founder Katherine Roberts, the most recognized yoga fitness performance coach in the golf industry.

Lee Derrick of Yoga for Golf UK says, "We are delighted that YFG and Katherine Roberts will be heading to Scotland to deliver their teacher training program. It is highly appropriate that YFG should choose Scotland, the Home of Golf, for their first transatlantic teacher training."

Katherine Roberts, a Nike Golf Swoosh Elite staff member, has been teaching yoga and its golf-specific applications for more than 14 years and continues to find interest from golf professionals, yoga teachers, and health & wellness professionals who are looking at new audiences and other ways to grow their businesses.

During the three-and-a-half days of instruction, each participating professional receives comprehensive training from Roberts on various key aspects of yoga, golf and sports psychology as it relates to strength and performance. Once certified, YFG instructors are able to offer a wide range of yoga and fitness-based instruction services and follow the fundamental teachings and concepts presented by Katherine Roberts, also found in her best-selling books, video products and downloadable instruction series.

Lee Derrick, who is a graduate of the Katherine Roberts Yoga for Golfers program says, "Anyone who stops and examines the two disciplines will quickly discover there is a natural fit between yoga and golf."

Oliver Morton, Founder of Leading Edge Golf Company, who will be the PGA Golf Professional on site for the teacher training program shared, "I'm thrilled and enthused to be involved with the YFG teacher training program here in Scotland. I'm looking forward to learning more about the integration of yoga into golf instruction as well as imparting some of my golf knowledge onto others participating in the program."
