Much like the lightning bug, Firefly Yoga & Movement Studio brings light to dull places. In fact, that’s how owner Kelly Partyke chose the studio’s name. She wanted their mission of bringing light to the community to be clear. Kelly fell in love with yoga after her youngest of three boys was born. Yoga was the perfect balance of wellness and family, allowing her to feel successful in both. After discovering her passion for yoga, Kelly decided to become certified to share the gift of yoga with others. Kelly’s certification is in Holy Yoga, which is a form of Christian Faith based yoga.
The studio offers a variety of yoga classes, including chair yoga for the less mobile, aerial yoga, and adult yoga classes. Firefly Yoga & Movement Studio also offers a semi-private program that serves those who are looking for a more goal-oriented wellness routine. Firefly is the only yoga studio in the Temple area. Not only do they offer yoga services but located in the studio you will also find a boutique. The boutique hosts an array of yoga apparel, supplies, and wellness lifestyle products.
Firefly Yoga & Movement Studio states that, “when people feel better because of the benefits of yoga, they are generally kinder, and the world is just an all-around happier place.” They are grateful to be in the Temple area, because the fast-growing pace brings in new faces who are looking for a studio “home.” It is to the ones who come in daily, no matter their schedules or what is occurring inside their personal lives, that inspires Firefly to continue to spread its wings. People from all walks of life step in Firefly’s doors. What they experience inside is a new, supportive, and inclusive community. In the next 5 years, Firefly hopes to expand, and open other locations. Kelly closed by adding that what makes Firefly so unique is their teachers and students, and she challenges you to stop by and see it for yourself!
