Middleton Yogi of the Month: Jaime Hoerres


I first started at Dragonfly after attending a hot yoga class at a neighboring health club. It had just opened up close to my work/home & I thought I would check it out. I had taken a few non-heated yoga classes and I really liked it, but I always felt I did not sweat enough. When I do any type of exercise, I really want to sweat and non-heated yoga was not cutting it.

I love all things Dragonfly!! When I first started going, I was a little nervous. I didn’t know what to expect, but everyone was so welcoming, it made me feel like it was a second home.

Since starting my journey here, I have experienced a lot of changes. I am so much stronger than I thought I was both mentally and physically. It really helps me focus. My brain is always going a mile a minute and this practice helps me slow down and be in the present.

I am an avid Suki follower! I go to the Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 5:30AM classes & Saturday at 7:30am. I never, ever expected to be a person who could get up at 4AM and go to any type of class. I remember the first day I took the 5:30am class; I downed two cups of coffee thinking that I would never be able to keep up! It took about three classes and I was hooked. Now I cannot imagine my life without it in the mornings. There is something very special about practicing before the sun comes up. Suki brings such light to the classes, I really do admire her. I know that I am going to get a great workout, but I am also going to get more than that. She always shares a bit of herself in each class. It is life changing….Thank you Suki!!!

I honestly cannot even remember what my life was like before hot yoga. This has given me a purpose and something to look forward to. It’s something that I never get tired of and cannot imagine my life without it.

I LOVE Dragonfly! Everyone has to try it!

Instructor Suki Warda: “About a year ago, Jaime mentioned she would wake up super early and couldn’t get back to sleep. I suggested she join us at Dragonfly for our 5:30am classes. She showed up and has done so for over a year! Her practice is strong, consistent, dedicated, and sassy! Thank you Jaime for bringing your vibrant energy to help light the early morning classes!
