While there is a lot of talk about what is happening with the Jois Yoga studios, the Sonima Foundation — the nonprofit wing of Jois, the re-named Jois Foundation — has provided another grant to a San Diego school for yoga classes.

 

According to the U-T San Diego, this time the grant is $62,000 and will cover the program and materials for more than 300 students at the Monarch School. From the story:

Monarch became aware of the grant through volunteers and community partners, Monarch Schools CEO Erin Spiewak said. Once Sonima board members learned about the school and its mission, they decided they wanted to build a relationship with the students and “positively affect the community by adding a yoga curriculum to their lives,” the foundation’s Lauren Spiegman said.

 

The Monarch school serves homeless children. The grant runs for one year.
