Support Our Troops Class

Care Packages

Saturday, May 12, 4:30-5:30

Cost: donation of care package items

This donation-based class will be led by instructor Carrie Johnson whose brother is currently serving in Afghanistan. The men and women of our armed forces do not have access to many things we take for granted, so come on down to Dragonfly with care package items, and we’ll send them to the hard working troops stationed overseas.

No need to pre-register online, just call us at 608-274-9642, email info@dragonflyhotyoga.com, or just show up!
