Middleton Yogi of the Month: Jay Weatherford

Jay was looking for an activity to compliment his cycling and some of his cycling friends mentioned that yoga was a great way to increase core strength and flexibility. This led Jay to Dragonfly to get more information on classes as Yoga was something new for him.

Jay: I have absolutely NO previous yoga experience. It took me about a month after stopping by for information before I finally worked up the nerve to sign up for a class. It can be a little intimidating for a guy initially but that goes away after 1 or 2 visits. The entire staff at Dragonfly has been wonderfully accommodating and inspiring.

I really get a great feeling of accomplishment and calmness with each class. It’s a great way to experience increased flexibility, strength and peace of mind all rolled up in one hour of warmth.

I have definitely experienced an increase in my core, arm and leg strength as well as positive changes in balance and flexibility. I also now have the ability to actually close my eyes, relax and take in positive thoughts to help me calm my mind.

I strive to attend class at least 5 times each week, I would say my favorite class is Flow.

Taking classes at Dragonfly has certainly exceeded all of my expectations and I am thrilled that I finally made the decision to give it a try. The staff and facility are nothing short of exceptional. I’m looking forward to experiencing the benefits of taking hot yoga while cycling this coming season.

Thanks to all for your help and encouragement!

“Thank you Jay! We appreciate your willingness to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Thanks for sharing your energy with all of us at Dragonfly!”

  1. It is so nice to hear that you feel welcome and taken care of while you are here. I know that for most men when they come in for the first time it can be intimidating and that is totally normal but my hope is that they find their place and inner peace and want to continue practing here. It thrills me that you have and I hope that you continue to enjoy the teachers and classes. You’re first sentence says it all, no matter where you start you are here and getting in the studio sometimes can be half the battle. Thank Jay!
