Middleton Yogi of the Month: Rachel Nachreiner

How did you get started at Dfly?
I started coming to Dragonfly in 2013 while still in high school after receiving an unlimited month of yoga as a gift. It took me awhile to finally start classes, but once I did, I was hooked!! I continued coming to Dragonfly while home from college and now continue going as often as I can!

What is/was your yoga/barre/fitness experience before Dfly?
Dragonfly was my first experience with yoga or barreamped and have never had a reason to try anywhere else!

What do you enjoy most from attending Dfly classes?
I love the atmosphere and the people. It is a great community that feels like a second home when I need to get away from everything on my to do list!

Have you experienced any changes in your total well-being since taking classes?
Yoga is my happy place. It helps so much with my stress level and keeps me sane!

How often do you attend classes? Favorite class?
My attendance has varied with my schedule, but I try going at least 4 times, maybe more on a good week! I love flows, especially core flow or slow flow. There are so many great instructors who all lead very different classes making every flow class unique and interesting.

Please feel free to share any other thoughts you have about Dfly, hot yoga, or your life as we would love to know more about you.
Before Dragonfly, I struggled to find a type of workout that was for me. I found it difficult to work out especially on my own. Yoga has shown me that working out can be fun and I feel it has been so much easier to see progress through strength and flexibility as I improve my ability to do different poses. The little victories in my practice keep me coming back and reminding me how much I love it!

Instructor Anna Lindstrom: “It is such a pleasure to have Rachel in class. Her beautiful energy and spirit present themselves in her practice. She’s willing to “get curious” by trying new concepts, responding to subtle cues, and still make her practice her own. I look forward to seeing her each week. Congrats Rachel!”
