Cardoza’s inspiring video

Nicole Cardoza believes everyone deserves access to health and wellness resources. Her mission is to address the wellness gap and make wellness accessible for all through the health benefits of yoga. She has released an inspiring video on how her non-profit work is making wellness accessible in partnership with Nike’s Spring 2020 Yoga campaign.

Cardoza founded Yoga Foster and Reclamation Ventures to help bring health and wellness services to underserved populations and communities. Yoga Foster is a national nonprofit that “empowers educators with yoga and mindfulness for the classroom” and impacts over 100,000 students each year. Reclamation Ventures is the investing firm she created to invest in “high-potential, underestimated entrepreneurs making wellness more accessible.”

In the video titled Yoga for all: Nicole Cardoza, she tells us that yoga has saved her life by giving her potent tools to cope with anxiety and depression. She began sharing yoga’s power to others after volunteering to teach yoga to school kids who had been traumatized by a nearby shooting. She shares a powerful manifesto with us, “Everyone deserves the right to be well, it’s just a matter of investing in it.”
