Who's On The Mat

Ariele is DC's only Registered Yoga Teacher / Doctor of Physical Therapy and is also an earth-loving, bike riding, veggie-chowing redheaded sunbeam.

Ariele grew up practicing yoga with her grandma and recently stepped down as a full-time eco-justice warrior to be a steward of the wild, mysterious ecosystem of the human body.
