creating healthier places in which to learn

WITS Featured Fitness Partner



Nicole Cardoza, Yoga Foster


WITS is delighted to welcome Nicole Cardoza and Yoga Foster as the newest members of the WITS Coach for Kids team. Yoga Foster is a nonprofit organization that brings free yoga to schools and communities across the U.S. Currently, Yoga Foster has programs in New York City, Washington D.C, and Pittsburgh. By developing a unique youth program that blends storytelling with yoga poses and breathing, Yoga Foster helps kids become more creative, innovative and inspired. 

Nicole, founder of Yoga Foster, launched her non-profit after volunteering as a yoga teacher in schools. While volunteering, she realized first-hand the importance of well-developed and accessible programs that provide opportunities for kids to learn and grow. "I'm thrilled that we can support an organization that also believes in happier, healthier, kids" says Nicole.  Having studied International Business Management and Marketing at Pace University, Nicole furthered her passion in creativity and education through courses at Stanford University. Her extensive training in yoga, coupled with the creation of Yoga Foster and her regular contributions to Mind Body Green and Do You Yoga, has earned her a listing in ABC's "Top 10 Millennials Who Are Changing the World" in 2013.


"WITS does a wonderful job on providing a holistic, blended path towards physical and emotional wellness in their communities, and we love to promote a fun, accessible perspective on yoga!" says Nicole.
