I initially got started at Dragonfly because I was searching the city of Madison for a Barre class. Dragonfly entered the Barre market in Madison and I immediately signed up for a class. I was so excited there was finally a studio in town that offered it – I moved back to Madison from Chicago a few years ago, and many of my girlfriends had been talking about these new Barre classes there. I was very excited Madison finally got Barre. I had also just had my second son, Charlie, 5 weeks earlier. Charlie and I went to Dragonfly together for my first class and he did the childcare. I thought that was so cool the studio had childcare. He doesn't come with me anymore because I went back to work, but it certainly was nice to have at the time. If we ever have baby #3, I know I'll have a great place to come during maternity leave. Slowly I started trying different classes and finally became a member because I wanted to try everything! It was an excellent move that I'll never regret.
Before Dragonfly, I had never done yoga before. I would run a lot and do cardio classes. Yoga and the various other classes offered at Dragonfly have been amazing and transforming. I ran the Napa to Sonoma half marathon last month, and it was my strongest race ever. The best part is that during my marathon training, I only ran once per week! My yoga, power, and Barre classes put me in the best shape of my life, and made an incredible difference in my running.

We’re Expanding in Middleton!
This September we’ll open a new room at our Middleton location:
Introducing STUDIO MILD
A space for Teacher Training, dFLY BarreAmped, and non-heated yoga classes
Dragonfly Middleton keeps on flying! We love our current studio space (now dubbed Studio HOT), and it’s clear you do too! Some of our classes (like dFLY BarreAmped) are always full, and with the addition of Teacher Training in September we just had to make room for more. So, we are super excited to announce a new space at our Junction Road location: Studio MILD!
It will be across the hall from the current studio, and it will be a space for non-heated yoga, more dFLY BarreAmped, and teacher training! Stay tuned for more details!
I have always loved to exercise. Prior to Dfly, I had been attending a 4 day weekly boot camp. Unfortunately, due to a significant knee injury I suffered a number of years ago, after 8 months of camp my knee had enough so I began looking for an alternative form of exercise.
My yoga experience prior to Dfly was just a few classes here and there at a gym in Minneapolis. What is awesome about Dfly classes is the continual challenge for my body; each class/practice is an opportunity to push myself further than I thought I could.
