Today’s guest is Nicole Cardoza, founder of Yoga Foster. I couldn’t be more excited about Nicole’s mission to bring more movement into classrooms across the country. Her approach is innovative, too — Nicole’s background in tech inspired her to create a platform that offers yoga curriculum and teacher trainings to classroom teachers. It’s a scalable idea and one that empowers classroom teachers to bring mindfulness breaks into their classrooms throughout the day. I love the idea of yoga being incorporated into the school day in a seamless way. Nicole also opens up about her recent experience doing a cover shoot with Yoga Journal and how important it was for her to speak out about a surprise cover survey they did after the fact. I ask her how she handled a situation that was shaming, ignorant, and racist and turned it into an opportunity to help others.
