Kristen completed her 200 hour multidimensional teacher training at Pavones Yoga Center in Pavones Costa Rica under the guidance of her teacher Indira Kate Kalmbach. This past year she finished her 1000 hours teaching to become a yoga alliance certified E-RYT. Kristen’s fundamental desire for constant learning is evident in her practice and teaching. You will often find her in classes and workshops or with her nose in a yoga book!
When Kristen isn’t on her mat or driving from class to class listening to podcasts, you will often find her outside nourishing herself by connecting to the natural world. Since a young age Kristen has had a deep connection with the earth and she tries to spend as much time outside as possible. She loves to hike and paddle board with her rescued ‘supermutt’ Koby. Kristen also enjoys travelling anywhere and everywhere, creating delicious plant based recipes and enjoying a cup of coffee or a hoppy beer.
Kristen’s joyful and sincere approach to life allows her to share yoga in an inclusive and nonjudgmental way; truly allowing the practice of yoga to bridge gaps. By sharing this practice that continually influences and grounds her Kristen hopes to inspire others to find their yoga.

Are you slowing down and entering the best years of your life but you can’t find a class to fit what you’re looking for?
Do you have autoimmune issues or just starting on your holistic/fitness journey and want to connect with other empowered women who want to move, have FUN and “feel free to be me” in a non judgement environment?
Do you dislike “gym” atmospheres and feel they are too much?
I became a fitness instructor 12 years ago to reach those who needed low impact modifications since gyms seem to be geared towards the fit. Even beginner classes are still not for most “beginners”. But after stress fractures to both my legs in 2010, as well as an autoimmune disease, it became tougher to do what I love. I also realized that I had forgotten my “why” I teach. After some soul searching the last few years as well as trying to find classes that suited my need for a more gentler approach, I realized if I couldn’t find what I was looking for, there must be others that are looking for the same. So I hope if this resonates with you, take the time for YOU and come join us as we start on our journey together!
I am currently a certified AFAA group fitness instructor, Zumba, Nirvana (breathing fitness to music), Bellyfit, Holistic Wellness classes, and CPR Certified as well as an Usui Master Reiki practitioner.
Carolyn is a Usui Reiki Master
As a fitness instructor with fibromyalgia 10 years ago, I had overdone it and ended up with stress fractures in both my legs. Determined to get better after traditional medicine wasn’t helping and actually caused part of the problem, I learned about and tried every holistic practice I could come across. I loved them all!! But that is when Reiki found me.
My Reiki mentor showed up in my life and changed what I thought I knew about myself and the world around me regarding healing energy. That led me to my Reiki practice 5 years ago in my home office
and in corporate and event settings as well teaching other holistic classes and workshops. I am thrilled to be adding a few classes as well as private Reiki appointments here at Dragonfly Wellness.

Liz (RYT-200) received her yoga teacher training at Central Mass Yoga in Boylston, MA, under the guidance of Lucy Cimini. Her knowledge of the human anatomy and body mechanics, learned in over 15 years as a Massage Therapist, allows her to teach proper alignment in poses so students don’t get injured. Liz loves introducing yoga to newbies who may think that yoga is not for them. She received additional training in a modality called “Curvy Yoga”, to support students of all shapes and sizes who would like to practice yoga in a non-competitive environment. Her classes specifically promote body acceptance by helping students create a yoga practice that is right for the body they have today. Liz uses her sense of humor to bring levity to her classes. “Take your yoga seriously and yourself lightly”.
In addition to group classes, Liz teaches private yoga sessions for students who would like more focused attention or prefer not to practice in a group setting.
