Another Banner Year for Dirty South Yoga Fest
Atlanta’s sixth Dirty South Yoga Fest, held in August, once again broke its previous attendance record. Last year, the first year the festival extended past one day, attendance was approximately 750. This year, the first year the festival included Friday sessions, attendance jumped to 900.
“For a Friday, during the day, I think it was very well received,” says Jennifer Kitchen, the festival’s project manager. “We had more people than we anticipated.”
The Friday sessions were geared towards yoga teachers and studio owners and were longer in length. Kitchen felt that these classes were well received.
Saturday and Sunday offered attendees what the festival has come to be known for—a wide variety of classes that extend beyond what one typically finds in their local studio. The classes that filled up fastest, for example, included Align Flow with Essential Oils with Holly Griffin; Sweat, Stretch and Detox with Anna Kennedy; Sacred Cacao Ceremony with Nina Simone; and Qigong with Corrine Chavez.
