Join YGSF to manifest a day of nourishment, warmth, and support for our community this Thanksgiving Day.
All Proceeds Donated
Four generous YGSF yoga instructors will lead “by donation” (beginning at $20) classes to benefit the San Francisco Community Housing Partnership, an outcome focused nonprofit that fulfills its mission by developing and managing high quality supportive housing and providing services to homeless individuals, seniors and families to help them rebuild their lives and break the cycle of homelessness.
Warm Clothing and Goods Drive
The air is getting brisk, even with the beautiful blue Bay Area skies. Everyone deserves the comfort of a cozy scarf and mittens! Bring your donations of clean, gently used, seasonal clothing, shoes and linens to Yoga Garden SF and San Francisco Community Housing Partnership will put them to good use.
FarmBox SF Goodies

9:00 – 10:30 am FLOWING WITH ABUNDANCE with Meredith Holt
In the present moment, possibilities are endless. In this class we will replace the past, future, fears and insecurities with the bravery and courage to invite abundance into our lives. We will create heat in the hips and the core and use that energy to crack the heart wide open. As we choose to play big, we will inspire others to the do the same.
9:30 – 11:00 am CONTENT AND FULL-FILLED with Nick Palladino
In this pre-Thanksgiving vinyasa class designed help you earn your calories, we will fill ourselves up with appreciation for all that we already have and learn to see that true contentment comes “aparigraha” or non-grasping. Through letting go of our attachments and desire for more, we’ll explore how true giving can only come from a heart that already has all it needs and that is truly fulfilled.
11:00 – 12:30 pm GRACE AND GRATITUDE with Robin Duryea
On this day we remember all that we have, shifting our perspective from the notion of lack, the idea that there’s not enough, into the truth of abundance. We allow ourselves to see the gift in all experience, as this time isn’t easy for all of us, holidays can bring up a mix of emotions and memories. So we come together to remember; remember that we are not alone and that together we turn our gaze towards the joy and peace inherent in us all…
