GRANTS AVAILABLE

At Yoga Foster, we're committed to making yoga accessible and sustainable for all schools, teachers, and kids. To that end, we offer Full Grants for the school year to qualifying teachers/schools. The Yoga Foster team reads and reviews every application individually (really!) and awards grants based on:

  • Need: We prioritize Title 1 public schools (must be in the US).

  • Program Design: Our training and programs are designed for teachers with pre-K through 5th grade classrooms.

  • Teacher: We ask that you spend at least an hour per week with students (primary teacher; ELL teacher; special education teacher; PE teacher).

  • Commitment: Your thoughtful application materials are why we come to work every day!

To apply for a Full Grant, select "Yes, please consider my application for a Full Grant" on the last page of the application. Your spot will be saved until your grant application has been processed (current processing time: 3-5 weeks). 

A quality grant application…

  •  Demonstrates buy-in for implementation from administration
  •  Schedules times of day to integrate movement and mindfulness 
  •  Interest from more than one educator in the school
  •  Desires to participate in the training, use the curriculum, and make good use of physical resources
  •  Demonstrates financial need
  •  Plans for a school-wide implementation

TESTIMONIALS

 
quoteleft.png

I am very grateful for your help bringing yoga to my school.  In addition to the many physical benefits it has also started a dialogue about maturity, body awareness, open mindedness and tolerance in my classroom.  Yoga is not everyone's first choice in an elementary gym setting but once they give it a chance they are able to see past their pre-conceived notions.

 


I find that the students have a higher level of patience and tolerance for each other.  They are more able to follow the rule of consulting with an adult when they have a conflict or disagreement with another student.  They exhibit less retaliatory behavior.  They are more likely to 'use their words' than fists.  When students have choice, many times they select yoga as a form of exercise.

When reflecting with a student the other day about steps to cope when accepting consequences or feedback, he reminded me that he can practice candle and flower breathing like in yoga when he is upset or wanting to argue about a consequence!
