CREATIVITY AND KIDS YOGA FOR ALL

WE FOSTER CREATIVITY IN YOUTH

THROUGH FREE KIDS YOGA CLASSES

BY EMPOWERING VOLUNTEERS TO GIVE BACK


Yoga Foster is a nonprofit initiative that brings free kids yoga programs to schools and community centers. Our classes blend kids yoga poses and breathing with storytelling and problem-solving to help get kids fit, inspired, and more creative.

As part of our programs, we provide all the yoga mats and other resources needed to support yoga initiatives, training for teachers and other staff that might want to run the class on their own, and volunteers to lead and assist each class when needed.

OUR THREE C'S APPROACH

ACCESSIBLE, AFFORDABLE, INSPIRING. Our programs use kids yoga as a way to encourage creativity in each and every child, regardless of their academic or emotional level. Our Three C’s Approach uses traditional children’s yoga and storytelling methods to enhance levels of clarity, confidence, and collaboration for each child, so week by week the instructors can measure their lesson plan’s effect on each student, and adjust accordingly.

"Creativity is as important now in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status."

Sir Ken Robinson

"There’s an incredible amount of creativity and playfulness within the foundation of yoga. And it’s these kids moving in such a creative and conscious way that makes it such a fun practice for children to get involved with.”
