BENEFITING: YOGA FOSTER INC
Yoga helps to integrate the body, mind and heart. We believe all people deserve to have access to yoga including urban youth.
This fundraiser is to support an amazing organization, Yoga Foster, that helped get the yoga program going at my dual language, urban school. The organization connects with teachers interested in bringing yoga into their school program. It provides FREE mats, curriculum, and related materials. I have the background in yoga so this was a very easy transition however many teachers need more training and support. Yoga Foster works with teachers to support their work ensuring they have lessons, materials and guidance to ensure the success at their school.
I work at a bilingual, urban school in DC. All students are learning a second language and many students need a little extra TLC and support in school. I brought my knowledge and skills of yoga to the afterschool program to help students gain inner strength, insight and confidence. By engaging their bodies, we can engage their hearts and minds to be more compassionate, thoughtful and help them find their passion.
Please give generously so that students like ours may have the opportunity to creatively express themselves and find physical activity that engages their mind and heart.
