IFD firefighters get yoga instructor certification


INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - The Indianapolis Fire Department is trying to relax through yoga and teaching other departments how to do it too.

IFD Chief Ernest Malone says he likes to embrace innovative ways to keep firefighters happy and healthy.

This week, that means a 6-day yoga certification class.

"We hold things in we're good about that. So I am hoping this is one tool that I'm hoping that people buy in on and it will make people better," said Erin Wright, IFD fitness trainer

The week long course goes until Saturday. When it is done, these firefighters will be able to hold yoga classes across the city.
