Since 2012, Abbie has served on the board of Lemonade - A Yoga Program, a non-profit that serves San Francisco's incarcerated youth. She co-leads five classes a week at SF's Juvenile Justice Facility and also serves as a grant writer, secretary and treasurer for the organization.
By using the trauma-informed base of Forrest Yoga, Lemonade works to provide a safe space for students to create space, move away from physical and emotional pain, and build life skills. As students work through poses and focus on their breath, they gain valuable tools for handling stress and trauma.
Abbie is not afraid to admit that these kids are her favorite students - and her greatest teachers.
