Middleton Yogi of the Month: Pi Semrad

Pi Semrad never saw herself as a yogi until she stepped into our Middleton studio three weeks ago.

“Although I sweat a lot, I appreciate being in a heated room while working out. I feel more flexible when I’m warm. I’m beginning to understand how much effort it takes for every movement you do in Yoga. You need to stay focused , be present for the moment, and listen to how your body feels. Maintaining balance remains a challenge for me and hot yoga in general has been a humbling experience. In just a short period of time, I can already feel improvement in my endurance level. In time, I believe the obvious benefits will follow such as muscle tone, core stability improvement, strength building, stress reduction and relief.”

Pi especially enjoys the BarreAmped classes. “There’s something about this workout that’s really challenging for me. It’s the small, isolated movements and challenging postures that motivate me to try harder every class I go to.”

Pi says she is excited to come to every class she attends at Dragonfly. “Feeling good and healthy sound like a simple goal to accomplish, but oftentimes the stress of everyday life affects how we think and feel. It’s our attitude about ourself and our surroundings that will help us live our lives better. With determination, commitment, and believing in Dragonfly’s philosophy, my goal is to make a happier and healthier life and the people around me better off!”
