Veg News Magazine has named Beth, YogaFit's Founder, one of the 25 Most Fascinating Vegetarians in the recent July 2007 issue, which has just hit newsstands.
Yoga junkies can attest, downward-facing dogs give you better abs than hot dogs-and nobody knows this better than YogaFit creator, Beth Shaw. Taking yoga and adapting the practice for a gym-going clientele, the mind beind the "YogaButt" explains her success: "I know that I am on the right path and am reminded of this every day in so many beautiful ways."
Community service is central to Shaw's fitness empire- trainees are required to volunteer as part of their curriculum. "Everyone can and should make a difference-and it's all those little things that people do that can add up to a positive change." Shaw recommends starting anywhere. "You can donate old towels and blankets to an animal shelter, you can read to the elderly, you can walk dogs at your cloal shelter. These things don't cost anything and make a difference to society."
Shaw credits her veg lifestyle with her sense of compassion. "Vegetarians are one step ahead of the general public in terms of higher consciousness. The challenge then is to take that to the next level. Helping other living creatures is why we are on this planet." Now that's looking good from the inside out.
