Lemonade provides ongoing weekly yoga classes to partnering organizations and schools. Our program builds mentally and physically stronger youth, establishes self-awareness and focus, and encourages youth to listen to their bodies, take steps to change patterns, and integrate new life skills to ensure success.

Lemonade began in 2009 when Executive Director, Sandy Till volunteered  a weekly yoga class in San Francisco’s Juvenile Hall. Lemonade continued to grow and  was awarded state level and Federal 501(c)3 status as a Not-for-Profit Organization in 2012. Lemonade has been a proud recipient of grants from Yoga Dana Foundation  and Kaiser Permanente.

Our Roots

Lemonade’s yoga programming draws from the teachings of Ana Forrest, creator of Forrest Yoga and author of Fierce Medicine. Forrest Yoga is renowned as an intensely physical and internally focused practice that emphasizes how to carry a transformative experience off the mat and into daily life. This practice challenges students to access their whole being and to use Forrest Yoga as a path to finding and cleansing the emotional and mental blocks that dictate and limit their lives. Students cultivate an acute awareness of their own practice and life process. This creates a unique and powerful opportunity for them to make practical life decisions based on their own experiences, and utilize yoga as an internal resource for coping and self-discovery.
