Join Us

Many of us have been raised with the belief to look outside ourselves for fulfillment. We live in a world that conditions us to believe that material things and other people will make our lives whole. Yet again and again our experiences show us that nothing external can completely fulfill the deep longing for "something more." We strive toward things that always seems to lie just beyond our reach. We are caught up in doing rather than being, in action rather than awareness. By being aware and taking inner action we can achieve a state of complete calmness and repose in which thoughts and feelings cease to whirl in perpetual motion. This state of quietude will bring you to a level of joy and understanding that cannot be reached through outer attainments. At Dragonfly, we believe we are all on this journey together.  Come join us in this truly transformational way of living and being.  We love what we do and we cannot wait to share it with you!

 And Now The Teachings of Yoga Begin


Ayurveda is considered to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems. Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realizing their full human potential. Ayurveda states that the purpose of life is to know or realize the Creator, both within and without, and to express this Divinity in one's daily life.  According to Ayurveda, every individual life is a microcosm of the Cosmos. Ayurveda is a medical science and its purpose is to heal and to maintain the quality and longevity of life.  It is an art of daily living that has evolved from practical, philosophical and spiritual illumination, rooted in the understanding of Creation.  It offers a profound understanding of each person's unique body, mind, and consciousness, which is the foundation of health and happiness. At Dragonfly, we use ancient wisdom combined with modern knowledge to enhance your well being and to assist you in living your most optimal self. Annette Broy, owner of Dragonfly Ayurveda and Yoga is a Registered Nurse, Certified Case Manager, Yoga Alliance E-RYT200, Yoga Alliance RYT500, Certified International Yoga Therapist and a NAMA Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner.  Call today to schedule your Ayurvedic Consult. We also off The Dragonfly Program which is a 60 Day total Life and Health Transformation program.  Please see schedule or click here to sign up for this amazing transformative program.


The word yoga comes from Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language. Yoga is the method to connect the mind, body, and spirit through stretching, building strength and deep breathing. Each pose or posture has specific physical benefits. Create heat in the body through movement and increase stamina and perfect alignment of the pose.  The benefits of yoga are far beyond what the scientist have already discovered.  Come, discover the truly transformational awakening with yoga! Yoga is much deeper than just a physical practice.  At Dragonfly we believe in, practice and teach the 8 limbs of yoga.

Below find a brief overview of the Eight Limbs of Yoga
1) Yama
Yama has to do with ethics, integrity and how we practice yoga off our mat. The 5 yamas are non-violence, truthfulness, non-stealing, continence, and non-hoarding.
2) Niyama
Niyama has to do with self-discipline and spiritual practices. The 5 niyamas are cleanliness, contentment, spiritual purification, study of sacred texts, and devotion to one's higher power.
3) Asana
Asana is the physical posture and this is the limb that most of us in the west are strongest at. It's through asana that we dissolve tensions, build strength, eliminate toxins, increase mobility and circulation.
4) Pranayama
Pranayama is the expansion of life force through through breathing exercises. Did you notice the last time you got frustrated, angry, scared or anxiety ridden what happened to your breath? It probably became restricted, choppy and erratic. "Breath control leads to mind control" and if we want to really be healthy then our mind must be in state of peace.
5) Pratyahara
Pratyahara is the withdraw of the 5 senses. Our whole lives the 5 senses (touch, taste, see, hear, and smell) are inputing information into our being and pratyahara is where we turns those off so that we may turn from the outer world and experience the inner domain of the mind.
6) Dharana
Dharana is focus or concentration. Focus is like a muscle on the body, the more you use it the stronger it becomes. Dharana is like the laser beam that blasts through disctractiveness and paves the way for a calm, centered, still mind.
7) Dhyana
Dhyana is meditation or total absorption into the object upon that which is being focused on. In dhyana we dissolve separateness and experience the deep river of peace.
8) Samadhi
Samadhi is absolute, ecstatic transcendence moving beyond time, form and space. It's the goal of all yoga and the supreme state of consciousness.
Look at the Eight Limbs of Yoga as the spokes of a tire. Each one is equally important to turning the great wheel of yoga!

Meditation is a means of transforming the mind through the practice of techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calmness of seeing the true nature of things.
