Yoga Foster gives elementary school teachers the training, curriculum and yoga mats to bring movement & mindfulness into the classroom during the school day.

It's 100% free for teachers at underserved schools, because it shouldn't cost an arm and a leg to move an arm and a leg.

Our work is powered by a community of donors – people just like you.

$20 gives one student yoga for the whole school year.

 

WHAT WE FOSTER

yf_icon_physical.png

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

One in three students is inactive, and schools struggle to make space for movement.

Yoga is easy to fit into a classroom, and flexible so any body can participate.

MENTAL HEALTH 

Anxiety and stress account for low test performance more than lack of academic aptitude.

Mindfulness increases focus and clarity. Students and teachers can perform at their best.

SOCIAL / EMOTIONAL GROWTH

160,000 students stay home from school every day because of bullies.

Yoga teaches communication, empathy and self-awareness to build better relationships.
