Sandra Till, President and Founder

Sandy Till began teaching incarcerated youth as a service project for her Forrest Yoga teaching certification in 2009. Over the past six years, Sandy has expanded the program to provide trauma-sensitive yoga classes to all units at San Francisco’s Juvenile Hall. She is passionate about providing youth in the justice system with yoga and mindfulness as an outlet for relief of stress and chronic pain. She recently oversaw the doubling of classes at the hall and introduced weekly classes at the Log Cabin Ranch facility in La Honda, CA. Sandy is a certified Forrest Yoga teacher and has adapted much of the Forrest practice for use with the youth in the hall. When she is not teaching, Sandy can be found working magic on her clients as a massage therapist, or taking her dog, Franklin, for long walks at Ocean Beach.
