ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS

ADI STRIGL
Adi was introduced to yoga at the age of 16 in her homeland, Israel. It was an unforgettable encounter filled with Sanskrit words and unusual posters which left her curious and mesmerized. It took her a few years to realize that encounter wasn’t coincidental. Yoga found her again at the age of 23, and has been her anchor and sanctuary throughout life’s adventures ever since. After serving as an officer in the Israeli army and traveling the world, she met her husband and settled in beautiful Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where they live happily with their 3 kids. Adi had received her degree in Graphic Design, and felt there is more to life than sitting in front of a computer. She then decided to revisit her love of yoga and take it to the next level. Adi had received her 200-hour certification from Dragonfly Yoga Studio in Doylestown, under the mentorship of Alexis Ridge-Simek and Joe Simek. She was fortunate to deepen her studies and attend inspirational workshops with Rolf Gates, Seane Corn, Aadil Palkhivala, Max Strom and other renowned yogis. Adi thrives to bring light heartedness, thoughtfulness, and humor into her classes, and take the participants on a self exploration on and off the mat.

TERRY CHARLTON
Terry’s love affair with yoga and all things Indian started when she was 17 and influenced by the Beatles pilgrimage to India. She studied yoga on and off for many years in New York City, experimenting with Kundalini, and a variety of meditation techniques from the yoga, Buddhist and Christian contemplative traditions. She recommitted and reignited her practice at Dragonfly in 2012 after attending a Dragonfly retreat at the Jersey Shore on Long Beach Island. After studying privately with Alexis Ridge Simek for a time, she completed her 200-hour certification in 2016. Terry works full time as an Executive Coach and Corporate Leadership Trainer and has been surprised and delighted that her clients respond enthusiastically when she integrates yoga practice in the corporate setting. In the winter months, Terry resides in Naples, Florida where she teaches group and private yoga classes. Terry’s undergraduate degree is in Performing Arts – Modern Dance. Yoga is a natural evolution for her.

Pranayama Workshop Series @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Sep 29 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

PRANAYAMA REMOVES THE VEIL COVERING THE LIGHT OF KNOWLEDGE AND HERALDS THE DAWN OF WISDOM.

– YOGA SUTRAS

Yoga practitioners in the United States often focus on Asana (postures), sometimes forgetting Pranayama, another vital step on the Eight Limbs Yoga Path. Pranayama, or yogic breathing, relieves stress, improves concentration, aids digestion, deepens our physical yoga practice, and ultimately prepares us for extended meditation.

Dragonfly’s Pranayama Workhops are designed as an introduction into Hatha Yoga breathing techniques. In these workshops, we’ll learn to prepare our senses and postures for pranayama through asana, various exercises and introductory meditation/relaxation techniques. In addition to practicing specific types of pranayama, we’ll also take a look at how breathing affects the body and its energies.

Our goal will be to safely bring pranayama into our everyday routine, as well as our everyday asana practice. Dragonfly Teacher Training Students will also leave with knowledge of incorporating more pranayama into their yoga classes.

The Workshop Series is designed for students of Dragonfly’s 200 Hour Teacher Training, but everyone is welcome to enroll. You do not need to attend the workshops in order. Beginners are welcome, but we strongly encourage you to attend some regularly scheduled yoga classes before enrolling.

Y12SR – The Yoga Of 12-Step Recovery @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Oct 20 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

The Yoga of 12-Step Recovery (Y12SR) is a practice designed to holistically address addiction. Addiction often goes unacknowledged in our culture, yet it is something we are all affected by. Each time we reach for something outside ourselves (substances, food, relationships, credit cards, etc.) to soothe or avoid our feelings, we reinforce codependent behaviors. Over time, these behaviors separates us from our true needs and power, leading us into addiction and suffering.

The Yoga of 12-Step Recovery serves people by creating a safe place where trauma & conditioned behaviors can be released. Various techniques are used to address the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of addiction. Y12SR is not a replacement for therapy or step work, but will enhance your progress within them. Every session is divided into two parts: a 12-step style discussion, and an intentionally themed yoga practice (appropriate for all levels of experience). Y12SR also supports those who are impacted by a loved one’s addictive behavior. This is an open and inclusive group that all are welcome to attend.

EVERY THIRD SATURDAY | 1 – 3:00 P.M.

Registration for these ongoing sessions is not required. However, please note that we have limited space and participation is a first come, first served basis.

COST:
In-person cash/check/credit card donations are welcome but not required. Just come!

A portion of all donations goes to support The Fiaria Project, a non-profit organization based in Bucks County, Pennsylvania dedicated to supporting foster families through transitions.

TIM HANSEN
As a certified Yoga Of 12 Step Recovery leader, Tim believes that a dedicated yoga and meditation practice can enable us to live an authentic life, be the best version of ourselves, and honor this lifetime. He feels that the benefits of yoga and meditation should be available to all, and looks to provide an atmosphere of inclusion that serves everyone in order to inspire, empower, and cultivate community. Tim completed a 200-hour Hatha Yoga certification program under the tutelage of Alexis Ridge-Simek, and studied pranayama and meditation under the guidance of Joe Simek at Dragonfly Yoga Studio. He has completed a Mentorship Program for Teachers with Rolf Gates, and has trained with the Love Your Brain foundation to provide yoga and meditation to individuals that have experienced a traumatic brain injury and their caregivers. Tim is currently enrolled in a Yoga Therapy program with Brandt Passalacqua of Breathing Deeply, as he continues to grow and broaden ways to serve his community.
