Yoga for golfersThe North American School, Yoga for Golfers (YFG) is planning its first teacher training programme outside the U.S.

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 programme.  It is highly appropriate that YFG should choose Scotland the Home of Golf for their first Transatlantic teacher training programme.

Katherine Roberts has been teaching yoga and its golf-specific applications for 14 years and finds interest from both golf professionals and yoga teachers who are looking at new audiences and other ways to grow their businesses.

Certified Yoga For Golfers instructors trained by Katherine Roberts offer a range of services and instruction and all follow the fundamental teachings and concepts presented in her books and video products. During an intensive three and half days of instruction each professional receives a comprehensive training on various aspects of yoga, golf and sports psychology.

Lee Derrick who is a graduate of the Katherine Roberts Yoga for Golfers School says, “ Anyone who stops and examines the two disciplines for 10-15 minutes will see that there is a natural fit between the two.

Oliver Morton Founder of Leading Edge Golf Company who will be the PGA Professional on site for the week agrees and comments  “ I’m thrilled and enthused to be involved with the YFG teacher training programme here in Scotland.  I’m looking forward to learning how yoga can be integrated in to our instruction as well as imparting some of my golfing knowledge onto those non golfers attending the programme”

The objectives of the Level 1 agenda can be found by following the link at:

The programme takes place just outside Edinburgh, in East Lothian at the Craigielaw Lodge, 17 -20 October 2013. For further information contact Lee Derrick, Yoga for Golf UK, +44 131  618 7500,+44 7949 078 827
