Fundraiser Flow: Hogs for Heroes

with Jonathan Krogman
October 21, 2018 • 2:30 – 3:30pm • Middleton
$15 donation, Veterans may attend for free

Please join us for a special Fundraiser Flow to raise money for Hogs for Heroes! Hogs for Heroes is a Wisconsin based nonprofit dedicated to healing the mental and physical wounds suffered by Wisconsin Veterans during the course of active duty. HFH has found that the freedom, camaraderie, pride, and peace of owning and riding a motorcycle can support healing for those Veterans who have long enjoyed the passion for riding but are without the means or ability to do so. One Bike at a time. One Hero at a time.

Dragonfly’s own Jonathan Krogman will be leading this special energizing, yet restorative flow yoga class. Jon is a former US Navy Damage Controlman, 2nd Class Petty Officer. The ship he served on was a guided missile destroyer, USS O’Kane DDG77. Jon was deployed to the Middle East in support of both Operations Enduring Freedom (the campaign following 9/11) and Iraqi Freedom (the campaign intended to liberate Iraqi from the Saddam Hussein regime).

This fundraiser flow is a part of our get out the vote for Best of Madison campaign. If we win Best of Madison GOLD, Dragonfly and Flyght will donate an additional $500 to this organization! More info, and to vote for Dragonfly and Flyght, can be found here.

FIT Coach Jared will introduce proper alignment and technique in lifting weights and we will work out in a circuit manner for one hour. From there, we will cool down, walking 10 minutes to the Dragonfly Studio in Fitchburg for a Flow/Yin Class lead by Lynn Lanning. Apple Wellness will be providing healthy refreshments and snacks immediately following the Flow/Yin class, and will be on hand to answer nutritional questions.

Feel free to drive over to the studio if you are wanting your car after the workshop, and not wanting to walk back. Fitchburg studio is located at: 6227 Mckee Road, Fitchburg WI 53719

Lift and Let Go is an amazing pairing where you will experience firsthand how weight lifting and yoga work very different, yet complimentary muscles in the body. This workshop is for all levels! Maybe you have never lifted before, tried it a little, or have been lifting weights as a part of your regular workout. New to yoga, or an experienced yogi? No worries, you won’t want to miss this! Two kind and caring communities coming together to bring you an educational and fun experience.

This workshop will not only leave you feeling strong and energized, but will bring awareness to how strength training and yoga work together to help you deepen into any practice.

Senior Yoga Workshop

with Kelly Perna
November 3, 2018 • 11:00am – 12:30pm • Middleton
$35, Members enjoy 10% discount

Yoga is a great form of exercise for seniors! Physically, yoga can increase mobility, flexibility, and strength, as well as improve balance and reduce aches and pains. Psychologically, it can help keep your mind sharp and increase positive emotions. Join us for a 90 minute not-hot gentle yoga class designed just for seniors.

This class will begin with discussion about yoga and then we will jump into experiencing the fun of moving through a series of seated and standing postures ending with breathwork and relaxation.

During class, we will address functional changes related to age:
Focus on hands and feet for arthritis.
Special attention on bone health as it relates to osteoporosis.
Core strength to improve posture and include balance work to help ward off falls.

We will use props (including a chair) to modify poses, to transition carefully, and to find the appropriate balance between ease and effort. The entire class will be seated in the chair or standing near the chair, so while the class focuses on seniors, it is open and beneficial to anyone with physical limitations that makes transitioning up and down from the floor challenging.

The class will be taught in a fun, friendly, supportive, non-competitive environment. Your instructor, Kelly Perna, has 500 hours of yoga teacher training, plus a specific certification in Senior Yoga, and has led over 1,500 hours of yoga teaching. Feel free to reach out to her in advance with questions!

If you are curious about a gentle approach to yoga, we encourage you to sign up and/or to sign up with your parent, neighbor, friend and take it with him or her! This class is not in our hot room.

November 11, 2018 • 4:00 – 5:00pm • Fitchburg
$15 donation, Veterans may attend for free

Please join us for a special Fundraiser Flow to raise money for Guitars for Vets (G4V)! G4V is a non profit organization founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin that provides free guitar instruction, a new acoustic guitar and a guitar accessory kit to Veterans struggling with physical injuries, PTSD and other emotional distresses. The healing power of music helps soldiers cope, and provides opportunities for self-expression and positive human interaction.

Dragonfly’s own Jonathan Krogman will be leading this special energizing, yet restorative flow yoga class. Jon is a former US Navy Damage Controlman, 2nd Class Petty Officer. The ship he served on was a guided missile destroyer, USS O’Kane DDG77.
