Downtown Yogi of the Month: Nick Kinsella

I first started with Dragonfly as a means to avoid stiffness in my body from previous sports injuries and consistent sitting in the office. Having no experience in yoga prior to Dragonfly I was a blank canvas to all that yoga has to offer. In Dragonfly I have found a community that harbors growth in a multitude of ways: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Yoga has eliminated all soreness that was previously hindering my day-to-day existence. I have developed new strengths within my body that had not been utilized before. The inspirational wisdom of the Dragonfly instructors has changed my entire perspective on myself and the outside world. Through their teachings I have learned acceptance, gratitude, kindness, and determination. In practice I find a euphoric connection to my fellow yogis through our united breath. I have a deepened sense of connection to the universe through meditation as I ground my body in savasana while letting my mind wander in nirvana.

There are very few things in this world that develop a person’s mind, body and soul in a positive way; when you find them cherish it, nurture it, and embrace it.

My soul is a tree
My body temples it
I am grounded
I give praise to the universe for all I have
An intention is set sparking a smoldering ember inside my heart
Movement builds the fire
A united breath fans it
My soul is a blaze
I am surrounded in its warm euphoria
All is given
Nothing remains
The chakras align
I am one with the universe
Heavenly sound of Om plants a seed once again
Life begins anew
