Downtown Yogi of the Month: Lauren Wysocky

How did you get started at Dfly?
I started at Dfly as a way to exercise after coming back from a knee injury. I had a hard time finding something that would be low impact and was enjoyable. Once I tried Dfly, and I was hooked after a month! I loved how it allowed me to work my whole body and challenge myself but also take it at my own level.

What is/was your yoga/BarreAmped experience before Dfly?
I had little experience before Dfly and had only gone to a few classes.

What do you enjoy most from attending Dfly classes?
I enjoy challenging myself. I love seeing how far I’ve come in my strength, flexibility and balance—it’s what keeps me coming back. Plus, the teachers are great and I appreciate it when they add tips for improving my practice.

Have you experienced any changes in your total well-being since taking classes?
I am stronger—both mentally and physically, and I have increased flexibility and mindfulness.

How often do you attend classes? Favorite class?
I attend classes about 4 times a week. I love Yoga Up when I want to really break a sweat and Flow classes when I want to practice mindfulness and work on my balance and flexibility.

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.
I love being in the Dfly community and feeling like I can be myself. I am currently working full time and in school to complete my master’s. Dfly has been a positive outlet mentally and physically and I can tell it has greatly affected my wellbeing. Thank you!
