A bit more to the name then you might expect.
Hi I'm Drew, and I started dmYOGA in 2012 when I was hosting yoga classes on Fridays in the East Village for friends who were interested in learning the practice I was doing.
dm is a play on my name, Drew Maifeld, and yes, on Des Moines. However the dm is stylized in lower case because it is less important then the subject...
YOGA is the emphasis. We hope to help you become your own self seeker and practitioner who would consider themselves on the path of awakening. If that sounds like you, feel free to put your own initials in front of YOGI.
We define yoga much the same way as you might expect, yoga is union with the Divine. To feel a strong relationship with who you think you are but also to chip away at your identification with that self. To feel and experience a great sense of oneness and knowing that you are connected to all things everywhere.
Please join us on a mat sometime and come experience the power of an uplifting community dedicated to lifting all of Des Moines and all beings everywhere to Higher Ground.
