The Dragon Approach
We care about more than just postures.
As our yoga practices grow stronger, we illuminate our power, learning how to use it for ourselves and for others. We celebrate each other’s successes so that every day we stand a little taller & and shine a little brighter. Our teachers are highly educated, empathetic, and excited to share the benefits of yoga with you.
Desirae founded her first studio, Hidden Dragon Yoga, in 2013 and it was the beginning of an amazing Kula. Dragon Yoga (we are no longer “Hidden”!) was established in 2020 during a time of change & challenge in the world. We wanted to continue the mission of sharing strong, safe, alignment-based yoga, but also forge a deeper unity with each other in a time when our community was being pulled apart. Desirae has always had the goal of finding a way to make yoga accessible to everyone, and Dragon Yoga is the next step on that journey. It is OKC’s first “pay-what-you-can” yoga studio, so anyone can practice with us, regardless of their financial situation.
Moose aka Truffle Pig
Moose (Turdy) is Dragon Yoga’s authority in all forms of Savasana and Meditation. Growing up on his mat, he found stillness of mind and peace, which has carried over into his outside life.
Tony aka Baby Hippo
Tony (T-money) found yoga later in life, and specializes in deep Pranayama. His playful spirit is infectious and he brings much joy to his Dragon Yoga Kula.
Honesty, Honor & Integrity
Yoga empowers you to discover and speak your truth. We treat everyone on this journey with the respect that they deserve. We practice this value every day, because our studio is a place where you can learn–and change–who you are.
Diversity & Understanding
Yoga is for EVERYONE–not just people with a high income or a certain background. Maybe you think that you don’t “look like” the people who do yoga. Or maybe you’re the first person among your family & friends to step onto a yoga mat. Our students come from every part of OKC, and we want you to join us!
Dragon Yoga Mission
Dragon Yoga was founded to bring yoga to everyone. It is Oklahoma City’s first pay-what-you-can studio. We are here to bring this practice and these tools to anyone and everyone who is interested, without having to worry about cost.
We encourage growth, creative self-expression, and evolution through an alignment-based practice that opens the heart. Our kula “community” welcomes everyone who seeks to align their lives on and off the mat, without bias or judgment.
Our instructors seek the good in all things, especially within themselves and their students. We build and empower each student’s self-esteem, and we encourage laughter and playfulness. We are all in this together.
