Empowering educators to make wellness elementary for themselves and their students.

The problem

Toxic stress is one of the most pressing epidemics affecting children and teens, affecting academic success, socio-emotional development and overall well-being. Many public schools struggle to provide adequate time and funding for extracurricular activities, mental health programming and counselors, which leaves students without stress management resources.

Our Approach

Yoga Foster empowers educators with low-cost training, curriculum and resources to create calmer, more centered classrooms. Their online platform enables educators to start their own mindfulness practice and to integrate it in the classroom, which fosters strong pro-social skills and decreases stress for both educators and students.
