When I graduated from Luther College in 2017, my 20-year long soccer career ended so I was actively looking to find a new passion that I could apply my love for fitness to. I had done some yoga geared towards recovery for soccer but I didn't have a lot of experience with the practice so I decided to try it out. As I started to attend yoga more often, I thoroughly enjoyed the physical and mental challenges it posed. I found that yoga truly put me in a state of "flow" (no pun intended), a feeling I had only ever experienced in soccer. I became a Dragonfly member a little over a year ago, which has since helped maintain both my physical and mental health. Now that I have started grad school, attending Dragonfly has played an essential role in decreasing my stress levels.

Why I Love Dragonfly
I love the overall community feeling and calming effect Dragonfly has when you enter the studio. I appreciate the high variability in the class types they offer so I can ramp it up when I want to with classes like Power Up or relax on stressful days with classes such as Yin. I am always challenged, both physically and mentally, and feel greatly encouraged by the instructors in every class.
