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.

Sun Prairie Yogi of the Month: Krista Veith

I remember attending a morning Yin class with Kelly Perna a couple years ago, knowing the first class was free. Spoiler alert: I really liked it!

I didn’t have much yoga experience before Dfly. I took a semester-long beginners class at MATC to fufill a PhyEd requirement, which is what originally got me interested in it, but didn’t find Dfly until years later.

Middleton Yogi of the Month: Nicole Hessels

My Dragonfly journey began in fall of 2018. My family and I were relocating from Hudson, WI. I had accepted a position with Exact Sciences and we were waiting for our home to sell. Four days a week were spent in Madison and 3 days in Hudson. The commute continued for 5 months! I was in desperate need of stress reduction and mental clarity. The stress of a new job, being away from my family, and moving were almost too much to handle. I am grateful to have found Dragonfly. Everyone has been warm and welcoming. It is a space that that accepts everyone at every fitness level. Since joining I have seen a significant decrease in my stress level, found a community where I feel I belong and the classes are AMAZING!

Fitchburg Yogi of the Month: Victoria Vogler

I began my fitness journey with CrossFit, however after a wrist injury decided that the intensity of the sport was too much for my body at that point in time and began looking for other methods of working out, which brought me to yoga. Shortly before I moved to Madison, I began actively partaking in yoga classes. With my background in dance, I’ve always had an interest learning and practicing yoga. After attending my first yoga class at DFly, I knew I had struck gold and, after only my 2nd class, purchased a monthly membership. Since then, my thirst for developing my yoga skills has grown and I am constantly seeking opportunities to improve with each class I take.

Downtown Yogi of the Month: Megan Litsheim

How did you get started at Dfly?
I began taking classes at Dragonfly after I moved back to Madison and was looking to try something other than my traditional exercise routine at the gym. I had done some yoga in the past and was looking for a studio that would allow me to incorporate yoga into my daily routine. Dragonfly was the first studio I tried and I haven’t left.

What was your yoga/BarreAmped experience before Dfly?
I had done yoga in the past, but pretty inconsistently. I had never tried hot yoga before Dragonfly, and after a few classes I was hooked. I honestly don’t think I could go back to regular yoga.

I started with Dragonfly at the Sun Prairie Opening. I was hoping to find a studio that fit my yoga style and am happy to say that I have been practicing there ever since!

I had been practicing yoga on and off for over 20 years, but not consistently before joining the Dragonfly community.

Middleton Yogi of the Month: Scott Chauvin

How did you get started at Dfly?
I got started through friends and the $5 drop in classes on Saturday/Sundays.

What was your yoga/barreamped experience before Dfly?
My first exposure to yoga was through P90X 11 years ago when I lost weight and decided to get in better shape. However, I didn’t continue practicing so I really only got back into yoga a couple of years ago following a back injury. Last October is when I truly decided to become more dedicated and practice frequently.

Fitchburg Yogi of the Month: Lexie Tourek

I am honored to be chosen as Yogi of the Month. I’ve been interested in yoga throughout my life, practicing on and off over the years. In the last couple of years, Dragonfly has made it easy to find a consistent practice. It’s been a place where I’ve seen myself grow in poses, relieved stress, and let go of expectations of what yoga is supposed to be. I love that there is a variety of classes and teaching styles, so it’s easy to try something new.

I think I’ve tried almost all of the different class styles offered. Also, the teachers have such creativity and wisdom that I feel like I learn so much – either learning new poses and sequences or learning something about myself through introspection.

Downtown Yogi of the Month: Lauren Brischke

My friend, Brooklyn, inspired me to try Dfly. We were at the dog park with another friend, Maddie, and we all decided to go together. I did an intro month and after just a few classes, I was hooked. I’ve been practicing regularly for a couple years now. Time sure FLY’s when you are having fun!

I had no yoga/BarreAmped experience before Dfly. This was the first I’d heard of it and I also never really had a consistent fitness routine before. I’d occasionally go running but that was about it. That changed once I started taking classes and now hot yoga is part of my routine most days of the week – it’s really turned into a lifestyle. Hot yoga is going to be a part of my life for many years to come, and I am so glad to have started this journey at Dfly!
