Michael Broy

Mike is co-owner of Dragonfly Ayurveda and Yoga.  Spirituality has always been at the top of Michael’s intrigues. From a young child his interest in the arena of “Something Bigger Than Ourselves” has had its draw on his heart and soul.

Michael is a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, and has been an Ordained Minister for over 25 years.  He has been involved in every area of the church ministry from youth and children’s ministry to Sr. Pastor. He has received his 200 hour Yoga Instructor Certification under the teachings of Ginny East of Heartwood Yoga, Bradenton, Fl.

Michael’s message is one of Grace. “God’s love and grace are bigger than one could ever imagine. While God may work in mysterious ways, the God of the work wants to be known and understood. Faith is more than a list of do’s and don’ts or trying to achieve. At the heart of faith is an evolving, growing relationship with a loving God,".

Edina Fitzpatrick

Edina is a certified RYT-500 yoga teacher through Heartwood Yoga in Bradenton Florida.   Edina has been practicing yoga for more than 13 years, studying with talented and inspiring teachers in New York, Massachusetts, and Florida. While her yoga journey has led her to practice a variety of yoga styles, Edina’s personal practice resonates most deeply with Vinyasa Flow, bringing a quality of moving meditation to the mat.  Yoga allows us to tap into our deepest essence, bridging body, mind, and spirit through the breath. While the practice connects us with our inner wisdom, it is by taking our yoga practice off the mat and into our daily interactions with others that we may find its deepest rewards. Edina’s intention is to help her students connect with their heart center through the practice of yoga and to carry that grounded, authentic experience into their daily lives. Edina teaches Moderate Hatha Flow and Restorative Yoga at Dragonfly Ayurveda and Yoga in Venice, Florida.

Mary Conway

As far back as Mary can remember, dance was her way of discovering and communicating with the world around her. It was a natural transition to bring this creative energy to the practice of yoga. In addition to dance, years of gymnastics caused a multitude of injuries. Through the practice of yoga, Mary found tremendous relief. Mary began her practice over ten years ago to increase strength and flexibility. Little did she realize, this would lead her on a spiritual jouey, bringing inner peace and balance to her life. This harmony was made possible through her own dedication and the help of her many teachers whom Mary will be ever grateful for.

For nearly forty years, Mary devoted her time and energy to her career in education. Teaching nursery through college level students, she found tremendous fulfillment as an educator. With Mary’s love and passion for teaching, instructing others in the world of yoga was a natural segue. She received her 200 hour yoga teacher training certification under Lara Ward’s Lotus Gardens Yoga School.

Whether it is a gentle flow or a challenging vinyasa class, join Mary on your own journey to self-discovery.

Keri Seals

At 52 I walked into my very first yoga class . I felt an immediate connection. This was something I knew would change my life!  With steady practice I witnessed all the "blessings "that yoga bestows.
In 2012 I completed the 200 hr Ha-tha method  teachers training certificate followed in 2016 with chair yoga certificate.
I taught yoga flow and yoga on balance ball for 5 years at Stillpoint Yoga in Blairstown NJ.
I feel so fortunate to be part of the Dragonfly community and look forward to seeing you on the mat!

Jacqui Motroni

My yoga journey began in 2007. Burnt out from 25 years of doing research work at Northeastern University in Boston MA. I knew I needed a change.  I was in my early 40”s and unable to conceive due to the stressors of commuting and general urban life.  My doctor recommended yoga. As some one who grew up on no pain no gain mentality, and with no understanding of what yoga was, I mocked the idea. I kept getting stiffer, was always exhausted, and frankly looked awful. I decided I would give yoga a whirl.

 

Long story short, I fell in love with the practice.  I gave birth to an amazing baby boy at 43, and wanting to give this gift to others completed my first 200 hour teacher training at Finding Inner Peace Yoga School in 2010 in Boston MA.

 

Over the last decade I have discovered that yoga is an ever evolving practice that will meet you where you are in life and support you in whatever challenges you may face.

 

Yoga is for EVERY BODY. Regardless of age, gender, size or physical limitations. Yoga can and will transform your life.  I am extremely passionate about yoga and am committed to guiding you on your personal yoga journey.
