We’d love to welcome new students to our studio during National Yoga Month,” says Shelley Lowther of Dancing Dogs. “My hopes are to bring yoga to as many people in the Beaufort community as possible, and we hope these free events will convince people to give yoga a try.”

Dancing Dogs Yoga was founded in January 2010 with the goal of being accessible to all of Beaufort County, offering programs to children and adults of all ages and levels as well as community classes held by donation only. The studio pledges not to turn anyone away for inability to pay.

Lowther received her RYT-200 from the Savannah Yoga Center and is currently pursuing an RYT-500 from the Asheville Yoga Center.

National Yoga Month September 2010 invites all styles of yoga to participate in an awareness campaign designed to educate about the many benefits of yoga and inspire our fellow citizens to live healthier, happier lives.  More information can be found at
