Yoga Foster and Active Schools 2017
Yoga Foster is pleased to announce the current program offerings for our national Active Schools partnership, formerly named Let’s Move! Active Schools.
Physical education and physical activity (PE/PA) are marginalized in American education, suffering from a lack of funding, supportive policies, and will. Despite evidence that inactive children are more likely to gain weight, miss school, underperform academically, and eventually face decreased earnings and higher health care costs, the most recent data from Gallup reveals that only 16% of parents view “not enough emphasis on physical education” as a major problem in their school.
As an organization committed to accessible forms of movement and mindfulness in schools and communities, Yoga Foster is honored to be part of this movement. We join a diverse range of other partners, all working together to help create Active School environments where students participate in at least 60 minutes of before, during and after school physical activity each day.
We have two core offerings for the 2017 – 2018 school year that we’re excited to share:
