Our Yoga Instructors
Camilla began her certification in 2014 in in one of the largest yoga studios in Sweden with a Hatha Yoga training. She soon began teaching two classes a week to students in the ages of 13 up to 80+ during the autumn and winter of 2014.
Having her degree as a registered nurse she was drawn to the idea of being able to combine medicine and yoga. She chose to educate herself further in this capacity and became licensed as a MediYoga instructor in December 2014. Soon after, Camilla moved from her hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden to the states with her husband. Due to move she wasn’t able to start teaching MediYoga in Sweden, but during the spring of 2015 was given the opportunity to volunteer at Eskenazi Health Midtown, at the Respite Care unit. This is a short term facility for people with serious mental health issues and chronic addictions who are getting ready to re-enter the community. Being able to share yoga to these individuals was a blessing and an experience that she was very thankful to have.
Camilla also became certified as a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher after moving to Indianapolis.
Mike Camp found his way to yoga at the suggestion of a neighbor who loaned him a yoga basics video. He immediately fell in love with the stretches, the calm soothing meditative flow and the rich heritage of yoga. It was not long after he started practicing with the videos that he discovered All People Yoga Center. He quickly dove into the varied class offerings, made fast friends of students and teachers alike and looked for ways to further his interest in yoga.
He assisted Nancy Schalk in her vinyasa classes from 2004 through 2008. In 2005, Mike completed the Yoga Teacher training Class offered by Nancy and Ann Miller. He was fortunate to find a teaching job immediately upon completing the class and has truly found a new passion in his life.
Mike’s Friday night Yoga class is a fairly eclectic vinyasa flow with a mix of more modern music and emphasis on corrections and adjustments throughout the practice. When Mike is not teaching, he is busy taking photos of yoga classes and has just recently produced a Morning Vinyasa Video features Nancy Schalk and a class of All people Yoga students and staff. Mike and his wife Patty have been married for 28 years. They have three children; David, Katie and Ben.Breathe. Flow. Let go. Namaste!
Olga Imperial Keegan
Olga’s youngest son, Ian, introduced her to yoga in 2013, the year before he left for college and emptied her nest. After 15 invigorating years of teaching Jazzercise fitness classes, she longed for something more to share with others. She fell in love with yoga philosophy, the fluidity and challenge of vinyasa class, the connection of movement to the breath, and the serenity she felt after yoga practice. Her spirituality became deeper as a result of daily yoga and meditation.
Olga has studied ballet from preschool age to adulthood, was a gymnast in high school, and has been a runner since college. All these disciplines helped her learn to teach the intricacies of yoga asanas and the art of yoga flows with the added dimension of cueing proper alignment and placement of the body for a safe, comfortable practice. Her classes offer fluid movements that integrate the breath and mind while challenging the muscles and body. Like a dance, she enjoys being creative when preparing her vinyasa classes. Olga’s flows have a theme that focuses on several of the chakras with the intent that everyone who takes her classes will leave with a calmness and centering that carries over to daily life.
“When it comes to yoga, I will always be a student first, learning from other teachers and yoga practitioners.” This is Olga’s belief and she is reminded of this each day.
Olga and her husband, Don, love to travel and explore the world and the outdoors. They have 4 grown children: Taylor, Luke, Ian and Alaina. When she is not practicing yoga, Olga has a busy real estate career.Breathe. Flow. Let go. Namaste!
Dr. Melanie’s own healing crisis in 2005 created a passion to educate others on natural health. She was dealing with chronic stress, digestive issues, fatigue, allergies, asthma, and adrenal issues. In working with a naturopathic doctor, she was able to bring her body back into balance using nutrition, yoga, and natural remedies.
With a previous degree in Civil Engineering, she decided to pursue a Doctor of Naturopathy and become a Registered Yoga Teacher. She is a Board Certified Naturopathic Doctor with the ANMCB, a Certified NAET Practitioner, and a 500-Hr Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance.
Dr. Melanie purchased All People Yoga Center in July of 2016 to be able to offer both naturopathic services and yoga with Dragonfly 360 Yoga and Wellness.
“I often refer my patients to yoga, so being able to work with patients and offer yoga classes under the same roof is ideal,” Dr. Melanie
Danielle has been practicing yoga for nearly 10 years, and really fell in love and started deepening her practice when she moved to Indy seven years ago. She received her certification through the Passion Yoga School program in Costa Rica.
There she continued her training with One Love Massage and Surf School, and received her certification in Thai Massage. Danielle and her wife own an outdoor adventure company, DNK Presents, and incorporate yoga in nature and on their adventure retreats. Danielle was a Division I collegiate athlete and coach, and implemented a Golf Yoga program during her time coaching. She loves to work with athletes on using yoga and healing to increase their performance on and off the field.
Rosa began her yogic journey several years ago. Having enjoyed different forms of exercise over the years, Rosa was feeling the need to explore a deeper discipline. Going to classes sporadically and using videos of yoga practices seemed to be resonating. It wasn’t until her guru said to her, “You need a teacher, Mom!”, that she got serious about expanding her knowledge of the practice. In 2007 she completed her 200 hour teacher training guided by the renowned Nancy Schalk. Yoga conferences & workshops with master teachers continue to enhance Rosa’s knowledge and desire to share her passion for this ancient art with others.
Rosa’s intension is to help the student tap into the physical, mental and emotional realm of the being. Modifications are offered to compliment different body types and needs for all ages of practitioner.
Rosa is blessed to be happily married for 40 years to Pat O’Connor, with 2 children, Lisa and Ryan, daughter-in-law, Mandy and 2 little grandgirls, Noema and Ruby Lynn.
Debra is an E-RYT200 teacher. She began practicing yoga almost 20 years ago and, relishing the role of a perpetual student, has found that her practice has been a continual learning experience wherein she feels taller, more capable, and most importantly, more centered.
To deepen her own practice, Debra completed 200-hour teacher training at All People Yoga Center under the direction of Dona Robinson and Ann Miller in 2012. With the gentle guidance of a good mentor and friend, she took the leap into teaching in 2013 and has loved every minute of it. She has continued learning through workshops with master teachers Erich Schiffmann and Sarah Powers. In 2014, she completed Yoga of the Heart: Cardiac and Cancer certification with Nischala Joy Devi and is currently working toward Gentle, Senior, and Chair certification through YogaVista Academy.
In her classes, Debra combines gentle yet dynamic movements with creative sequencing and a sense of humor. Her goal is for students to step off their mats and into the world feeling powerful, recharged, peaceful, and refreshed.
Manager - Angela Torok
Angela is an avid outdoor enthusiast who believes in the healing power of nature and enjoys camping, backpacking and winter hiking. Her interest in wellness began nearly a decade ago at the Fox Valley UU Fellowship in Appleton Wisconsin where, during a trying time, she was warmly received by a caring group of inspiring individuals. There, she was trained in healing listening and served in the Fellowship’s Lay Ministry Program. She has been on a path of physical and spiritual healing ever since and is compelled to pay forward her gratitude by aiding others who seek similar guidance.
In years past, she has owned a cleaning service and worked as a professional sculptor. More recently, however, her growing interest in health psychology and the loving support of her husband, David, have inspired her to work toward becoming a more integral part of the healing community. As Office Manager, she looks forward to her role in supporting the work of Dr. Melanie MacLaren and all of the yoga staff at Dragonfly 360 while expanding her own knowledge of holistic wellness and pursuing certification as a Healing Touch Practitioner.
