Madeline (Madi) Dupont finally tried yoga for the first time in 2003 after being curious about it for several years. She had been active in physical fitness throughout her life beginning with Gymnastics as a teen and college student, including coaching and judging competitions. Upon obtaining her MBA, moving to Kansas City and beginning her career at Hallmark Cards, she managed to stay very active in recreational sports such as Softball and Volleyball. She was also a member of a local gym, participating in racquetball leagues as well as fitness classes. She was introduced to jogging in her 30’s and instantly loved the feeling of euphoria that came from a good run.
Madi moved to LA in the early 90’s, and although her curiosity of yoga was sparked, she stuck to jogging and weight training while completely focused on her career, then at Disney. Moving to Santa Monica in 2003 finally became the catalyst for yoga. The Yogaworks Montana studio was just down the street, so she tried it and never looked back. The mind, body and spirit benefits of yoga completely blew away anything that came before.
