Dana Arbel

After years of struggling with identity, body image, and mental health, Dana Arbel found the tools to cultivate peace within through yoga. She trained at Urban Yoga in 2011, under the tutelage of Dave and Cheryl Oliver. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Arts, her teaching emphasizes individual expression through movement. A first generation American with a multiethnic identity, Dana grew up searching for her place of belonging. Creating a space that is inclusive and welcoming to all is built into the blueprint of DiRTYOGA. Establishing a strong sense of self while cultivating community drives Dana.
