Downtown Yogi of the Month: Chris Borland | Dragonfly Hot Yoga Madison WI

Downtown Yogi of the Month: Chris Borland

How did you get started at Dfly?
I moved to Madison from Los Angeles last year, and was looking for a studio to continue doing hot yoga. I live by the Capitol, so I lucked out that Dragonfly was down the block.

What was your yoga/barre experience before Dfly?
I’d occasionally do yoga during my days as an athlete. When my career was over, I did a deep dive into practice; I got a 200 hour teacher certification in 2016. Since then, my practice has ebbed and flowed.

What do you enjoy most from attending Dfly classes?
Classes are thorough yet efficient. The community is welcoming and the studios are peaceful – even when Yoga Up is a grind.

Have you experienced any changes in your total well-being since taking classes?
I’ve practiced regularly for months now, and it’s the best I’ve felt in years. Mind, body, and soul.

How often do you attend classes? Favorite class?
I attend class nearly every day that I’m in town. Often, I go twice daily. It’s hard to pick a favorite class, but I love Colleen’s 60 minute flow!

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 never know what to say to the “share more about yourself” prompt. I have a dog named Bruce, and he’s pretty great. I try to dress him as a different famous “Bruce” every Halloween. Last year was Bruce Lee. I’m open to suggestions.
