Hell YES / No WAY!

Own Your Boundaries

Retreat with Nikki Bruno and Melissa Merres

What’s worth sticking your neck out for? Where are you willing to draw the line? What would it feel like to say “Hell YES!” and “No WAY!” with confidence and joy?  Healthy boundaries keep us whole.

They free us to be fully ourselves, with no apologies. When we set limits and hold true to them, we show the world that we love, trust, and respect ourselves. On the other hand, when we allow our boundaries to be negotiable, we let ourselves down and guarantee that our needs won’t get met.
At this highly interactive retreat, led by dynamic coaching duo Melissa Merres and Nikki Bruno, you’ll explore your unique needs, values, beliefs, superpowers, and desires. Then, based on your renewed sense of identity, you’ll set personal boundaries and prepare to express and defend them. You’ll leave with a solid sense of who you are and what you stand for at this moment in your life—with the added support of an adoring community of incredible women.
Melissa’s bio:
Melissa Merres is a certified professional coach practicing in Arlington, Massachusetts. Melissa gets to support people as they reach for greater integrity, more effective communication, and healthy boundaries in service of personal growth. She works specifically with loving, hard-working women who find modern parenting and partnership to be springboards for personal reckoning. In her previous life Melissa has a bachelor’s degree from Amherst College and two master’s degrees from American University and the University of California – Irvine. She is a mother to two awesome boys and is continually building a community of strong women around her.
Nikki’s bio:
Nikki Bruno became a professional coach in 2016, after 15 years in the book-publishing industry. In her core coaching program, Phoenix Rising, she helps women reclaim their power and rebuild their lives after being sidelined by divorce, domestic abuse, illness, loss, or infertility. Nikki holds a bachelor’s degree in cultural anthropology from Princeton University and a master’s degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She has authored several books published by Capstone Press. A Boston-based single mom of two, Nikki loves scuba diving, international travel, salsa dancing, and helping women know and understand how incredible they are.

“There is something truly magical about practicing yoga in a beautifully restored 300 year old barn surrounded by the White Mountains, with Katie as your guide. She is warm and caring and works with your own abilities. And the food is to die for!” ~Cat Bryant

“Just spent a weekend at the Dragonfly Yoga Barn getting away from the hustle & bustle of Annapolis, Maryland. It was their first couples retreat. It is beautiful & peaceful here. What really makes the trip worth it is the gracious hostess & host, Katie, & Declan!  From the meals to the yoga sessions, the love of what they do shows through. It’s so great, you should add it to your bucket list of must dos! ”  ~Patti Cummings

“My sincerest gratitude for all the wonderful memories you both provided and enabled! I cannot wait for next fall… And relay my many thanks to Chef Declan–I’ve been cooking up a storm this week, thanks to his inspiration!” ~Michael

“Thank you Katie and Declan for a wonderful weekend! My students and I were touched by the beauty of your place and even more by the kindness of your presence. A most sincere thank you.”  ~Carol Faulkner

“…the most wonderful weekend of your Heaven on Earth. I have not stopped talking about it. Your warm hospitality and incredible Yoga has left a spot on my heart I will cherish forever. I have done lots of Yoga, but this was the BEST yet!! Your peaceful demeanor and meditations are life lessons. The food was just amazing!! What a team you make!” ~Diane Smith

  1. Spent yesterday afternoon (3/24/18) at Girish workshop/yoga class. I had a great time. The property is beautiful and Katie was awesome! One of the best yoga experiences I have had. Make the time to experience Dragonfly yoga.

  2. Namaste

    Your center looks lovely. I am inquiring to see if you have interest in hosting a Yoga Nidra teacher training for 2020. Dr Halpern and myself would teach.

    I will looking forward to exploring this opportunity if you see fit



    1. Hello! I am wondering if you and Dr. Halpern are still interested in hosting Yoga Nidra Training at Dragonfly? Let me know 😊 I am currently in a India for three more weeks in panchakarma, but I would love to talk with you! 🙏💕

  3. There is something truly magical about practicing yoga in a beautifully restored 300 year old barn surrounded by the White Mountains, with Katie O’Connell as your guide. She is warm and caring and works with your own abilities. And the food is to die for!
