Firefly Yoga and Wellness offers a warm and welcoming environment to explore the practice of yoga. Our vision is to share the practice of yoga in a sincere, intelligent, and joyful way. We believe yoga is for everyone, which is why we strive to offer a variety of classes, workshops and series to support your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. The Firefly community was founded and nurtured by Meghan Gaspers 5+ years ago, and in December 2018 the studio was opened. The Firefly Yoga and Wellness studio has created a space for the yoga community in Cody to gather and grow together. In January 2021, studio ownership transferred to Brianna Holm. Our hope is to facilitate the legacy of yoga community in this wild Wyoming area.
With a background in service and caring for people’s needs, Brianna believes that yoga is about connection to ourselves, to each other, and to the world. Her personal yoga journey started in 2007 out of curiosity and has developed into a passion for sharing yoga with others. Brianna is interested in bringing the balance of breath and movement to our lives both on and off the mat. She is trained in Vinyasa Flow, Restorative, Yin, Pre/Post Natal, and Yoga Nidra. Brianna’s faith in God and believing the highest form of teaching is to lead by example results in her intention to practice integrity and loving kindness in her life.
Brianna purchased Firefly Yoga and Wellness in 2021.

Born and raised in Boise, Idaho (later becoming a Montana and then Wyoming resident), Brooke has always seen her own identity as inextricable from her natural surroundings.

Brooke teaches well-rounded classes that challenge, strengthen, and expand the body as well as the mind. In all her offerings her goal is to empower people that they might show up in their lives as their best selves, embodied ॐ To learn more about Brooke and her offerings or to subscribe to her monthly wellness newsletter, visit her website: https://brookedavidsonyoga.wixsite.com/wyoyogi

Cami is an RYT-200 with Yoga Alliance. She started yoga as a way to help manage the day to day stress of life. While she finds the strength movements of yoga invigorating the flexibility movements are more challenging for her. The balance of the two keep her coming back to her practice. She believes that the practice of yoga can be used to challenge both our bodies and minds to promote change in our lives. Cami seeks to provide a structured movement based class to allow new and experienced students alike to explore their edge and continue to learn and grow their practices.

Yin: In contrast to yang yoga (vinyasa/flow classes) which focuses more on musculature strength and flexibility, YIN targets the connective tissue between those muscles and the body’s fascial system. During YIN yoga, we will hold restorative poses for longer periods allowing the muscles to relax and disengage in order to reach and lengthen the connective tissue. Through deep breathing and stillness, YIN increases flexibility, relaxation and emotional peace. This class is highly encouraged for new students, athletes, older students, and anyone looking to find a peaceful, relaxed practice. YIN in not easy, but it is intentional which gives us the space to explore our body, mind, and heart while accessing our body's deepest postural system, the fascia! Appropriate for all levels.
Mobility & Restore: Perfect for those new to yoga, athletes, or those looking to ease the aging journey, however, it is also a great class for all our students regardless of level. This class places heavy emphasis on alignment and core stability, making it a true foundation to any practice. Our goal is to provide a non-flow based class that is accessible to all students, regardless of physical limitations due to injury, age, and circumstance. This is a great introduction to our studio. During this 1 hour class you can expect to loosen tight muscles, let go of any fears of yoga, work to mobilize tight joints, ligaments/tendons, and find a deeper connection to breath and self. Each class will bring something unique to the mat to continue the support of our student's yoga journey. Appropriate for all levels.
Flow & Restore: This class is the perfect blend of movement and ease. Each class will consist of gentle Vinyasa and Restorative postures, appropriate for all experience levels.
Vinyasa: A flowing style of yoga based on linking movement with conscious breath. Each class is a unique sequence of poses designed to uplift and inspire. These classes offer a variety of poses and also some challenging poses. Some yoga experience is recommended, but modifications are offered to make this class accessible to all levels. Level 1/2.
Power Flow: A vinyasa class with a little faster pace than our regular vinyasa flow classes. Focus on strengthening body and mind. Some yoga experience recommended. Class is heated to 90 degrees. Level 2/3.
