I have wanted to write this blog for over a month now. As a fairly new yogi, I’ve struggled with what I could possibly contribute. I sometimes feel overjoyed with what yoga has brought into my life; I have found it difficult to put into words. Each class I take I leave with a new found feeling of peace, calm, and gratitude that stays with me throughout the rest of my day. Although I have dabbled in yoga through my home workouts and at my local community center for about a year, it wasn’t until I tried DragonFly this past spring on a Living Social Special that I fell in love with it. Last week I had the pleasure of taking a flow class with Cypress and she started the class with an emphasis of thinking of yoga as your home. And there it was–DragonFly has become my new home, my new sanctuary!
Michele, the studio owner is extremely down- to-earth; she has the most gentle, warm, and kind spirit. That energy is present the moment you walk into the studio. All the instructors are simply wonderful, I think I’ve now practiced in just about all the classes that are offered, there is something for everyone. What is beautiful about this studio is that there is an emphasis on more than just the physical workout; there are constant reminders of what yoga is truly about. Regardless if you are new to yoga or have been practicing for years, the instructors at DragonFly are nonjudgmental and enthusiastic about sharing their practice with others. Yoga, has helped me to tap into my inner spirit, it continues to be an awakening experience.
I find myself not only planning my day around when I can work a class in but also really looking forward to seeing my new yoga family, my new home. I have met so many wonderful women (and men) who are doing awesome work in our community. It is inspiring to be surrounded by other yogi’s who care as much as I do about not only their own physical and emotional wellbeing, but also about the wellbeing of our community and the much larger world that we live in. I hope that if you are reading this contemplating whether or not to try a class at DragonFly that you choose to do so! Namaste.
