It all started when…
Dragonfly was launched in 2016, by Mark Lancaster, a sports coach and physio and founder and CEO of Gmax Trackstars Athletics Academy, which was borne out of the 2012 Olympics legacy. Gmax Trackstars Athletics Academy is a registered charity (charity no.1138783) that supports local young people, providing coaching in running, jumping and throwing.
The academy helps those, often from disadvantaged backgrounds, to train with professional coaches with many young athletes competing at a national level thanks to the charity’s stewardship.
Dragonfly Yoga was set up by Mark as a community initiative and fundraising activity for Gmax. Apart from running costs, 100% of the profits from Dragonfly Yoga are driven back into the charity.
