THE VIBE BEHIND THE DDY TRIBE 

Dancing Dogs Yoga was founded by Shelley Lowther in 2010.  Shelley was a dedicated yoga student looking for a vibrant yoga community, and when she could not find one, she created it.  Shelley set out to create a new kind of yoga community based on service, outreach and practice.  After meeting Baron Baptiste in 2011, DDY's path became clear and DDY has evolved into the empowering and vibrant center of community that it is today.

Dancing Dogs Yoga is dedicated to empowering people and community -- on and off the mat.   Our mission is to empower others through leadership and creating new leaders.

 We currently have locations in Atlanta, GA; Savannah, GA; Bluffton, SC; Greensboro, NC and Augusta, GA.

"When I started practicing in December 2012, the entire staff at DDY welcomed me with open arms. . The time and dedication to this profession that I discovered in the DDY staff made me want to come back time and time again. So much so that I became a yoga instructor."
