“Yoga helps kids find time between school and after-school activities that they can really be with themselves,” Nicole Cardoza says.
“We see it help with focus and attention during the school day, and it also helps them feel more confident and be more collaborative with their peers.”
“Cardoza is the founder of Yoga Foster, a nonprofit started in 2011 that brings yoga to public schools through free teacher training, curriculum development and resources. Their approach blends traditional yoga practices like breathing techniques and poses with enhancements that appeal to kids (think: Frozen-themed sequences, kid-friendly names for poses and post-class drawing sessions where students illustrate the stretches they’ve completed).”
