DiRTYOGA began as a grassroots movement in 2012, when two best friends came together with the mission of offering accessible yoga to the community. Founders Dana Arbel, RYT 200 and Ashley Burns, RYT 500 are community activists who have over 10 years combined teaching experience.Their work focuses on breaking down the multiple barriers that hinder community members from focusing on their own health and wellness. They have formed multiple partnerships within the Phoenix community, collaborating to bring all aspects of yoga to unique outdoors spaces, while supporting local artists and businesses.
DiRTYOGA provides community programming focused on integrating health and the arts. DiRTYOGA is committed to introducing elements of body awareness, mindfulness, and artistic expression to those who feel excluded from the traditional yoga studio setting.
