Trips are arranged with groups to meet their schedules and particular desires.  They are great for groups of all ages and sizes: from family groups, to school groups, to adult tour groups.  Typical trips are 2-2.5 hours, and are usually at North Beach (near the Lighthouse).

Dancing Dogs Yoga

dancing dogs yoga classDancing 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.
Through the practice of Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga, students learn to get into the physicality of their bodies, opening hearts and minds. We offer power yoga & vinyasa yoga classes, yoga workshops and yoga teacher training’s in a clean, supportive environment.

Dancing Dogs Yoga is dedicated to empowering people and community — on and off the mat. We exist to empower others through leadership and creating new leaders. Find us at one of our workshops in Savannah, Tybee or Atlanta GA or at one of our sister studios in Bluffton SC or Greensboro, NC!
