Bozeman Yoga Classes
Spire's yoga studio offers a variety of styles, from Vinyasa to Yin, with a variety of times and instructors to suit your preferences. Our yoga studio is home to a passionate and talented group of yogis who can help you recover after a long workout with Yin yoga, engage your sense of balance and strength with one of our Power or Vinyasa yoga classes, or let you play with a partner in an Acro yoga class. While anyone can enjoy Spire's yoga program, we also offer several yoga classes explicitly aimed at climbers that can help reduce muscle imbalances, improve balance, and harden the body against injury. Our instructors strive to create a personal connection with each participant, and guide them through their yoga practice, by offering modifications, adjustments, or suggestions on how to further their practice. This personal connection allows our yoga instructors to accommodate a wide variety of skill levels, from beginner to expert, in an encouraging class environment. Class descriptions for each yoga class can be found by clicking on the calendar below. Join us for a yoga class today!

Ashton S. - RYT 200
Ashton began practicing yoga as a way to help her manage her chronic low back pain resulting from sport injuries. After practicing Ashtanga yoga she learned how yoga helped balance her physical energy. Her ongoing home practice helped her to discover the many benefits of yoga for the mind and spirit. After several years of personal practice she received her RYT-200 Anusara Yoga teacher training with Jodi Petlin at Shanti Yoga in Whitefish, MT. For Ashton yoga is a lifestyle that brings her peace, focus, energy, spiritual grounding and connection with mind, body, and others. She enjoys teaching yoga to help others find their center, bring balance to their lives, and observe healing as they deepen their practice.
Angela D. - YTT 200
Angela originally hails from northeast Florida where she obtained her B.S. in Biology from the University of North Florida. Her love affair with the sciences and a longing for personal well being made yoga a natural fit for her. She completed her training in 2016 in a Bikram, vinyasa style hot yoga. Shortly thereafter she was able to enrich her passions for climbing and yoga by structuring classes for climbers here at Spire. She works to structure each class with climbers movements and muscle fatigues in mind. She’s a firm believer that an intentional yoga practice can bring about increased body awareness, mobility, breath control, and help to prevent injury and therefore plays an essential role in pushing yourself to the next level. She’d love to practice with you!
Bernard C. - RYT 500
Bernard specializes in Ashtanga, a method that involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—producing internal heat, purifying the body and mind. The result is improved circulation, a strong body, and a calm mind. To reap the benefits and promote a healthy relationship with yoga, Bernard recommends prior knowledge of the primary series asanas. His goal is to aid yogis in their journey to sever ties with the contemporary yoga ego and to connect deeper with the body, mind, and spirit.
Beyond yoga, Bernard suffers from the inability to remain still, besides sleeping (that’s his favorite). Symptoms include a professional dance background, trail running, climbing, skiing, and a multitude of outdoor pursuits while always striving for mental, physical, and spiritual fitness.

Kelley J. - RYT 200
Kirsten T. - RYT 200
Mom. Wife. Climber. Traveler. Yogini.
Kirsten’s first experience with yoga was a weekly prenatal class when she was pregnant with her second son. After the birth of her two boys, she whole-heartedly dove into mommy-hood leaving yoga behind. Blessed with the opportunity to homeschool her two kiddos, she spent 4-6 months out of the year exploring and traveling the world with them via camper van, sailboat and jet airplane. Thirteen years later she rediscovered her love for yoga at Spire at the same time that travel slowed. With a strong desire to root deeper into the community and spread love and joy she got her RYT200.
Lauren J. - RYT 200, Reiki Master
My personal journey is in a constant state of turning and expanding, always leading me to new (and ancient) methods, expanding my education, and connecting me with others. Along the way, I realized my dharma is to assist others on their journeys towards wholeness, through sharing my knowledge, training, and resources with those seeking answers and a different way of life.
I received my 200 hour yoga teacher certification in 2017, continued on that year to become a Usui Reiki Master (following in the footsteps of my mother and grandmother), began my advanced yin yoga training in 2019, and am currently taking part in my 300 hour yoga teacher training. I have found a blissful harmony when I combine yoga and energy work together, along with incorporating other holistic tools such as meditation, pranayama, singing bowls, and many more. I encourage my students to bring an open-mind to the mat, and view their practice as a meditative practice that allows them to tune in to their inner experience.

Lea started regular yoga classes in university and appreciated the different form of self-awareness and mental space she felt during and after practice. Yoga inspires Lea through the grounding practice of connecting mind/body/breath and the exploration of how the body moves and changes from day to day. Generally a vinyasa/slow flow instructor, Lea strives to provide a variety of options and accommodations throughout her class to encourage individual awareness to how the body feels. Lea continues to study yoga as a form of therapy and injury prevention as well as food systems and nutrition.

Through linking breath with fluid movement and awareness of the body, Mari’s vinyasa classes work to encourage students to naturally understand these profound lessons. She aims to guide students through growth in their practice both physically and mentally.
Outside of yoga, Mari will be found romping in the mountains - be it climbing, skiing, biking, or backpacking. She’s found her yoga practice to be vital in keeping her body resilient and strong so that she can perform to the best of her ability in her other hobbies and works to help her students do the same!
Mackenzie M. - RYT 200
Meesh M. - RYT 200
After pursuing a career in traditional Western medicine, life threw several curveballs, and pointed Meesh in the direction of yoga. She began her personal practice as a source of injury management/prevention, but ultimately cultivated a deeply physical+spiritual practice; yoga became her medicine- for both the body and the mind. Meesh teaches a practice focused on proper alignment, pranayama, and the spiritual aspects of yoga. She believes there is no particular "right way" to practice yoga and that our practice can be both fun and intense. Whether you're looking for a way to deepen your meditation/connection to yourself, or to crosstrain for other athletic endeavors, she would love to be part of your yogi journey!
Ross H. - RYT 200
As a yoga practitioner, I’m largely focused on the physical health benefits that come from a regular yoga routine. After years spent sitting in a car driving to and from skiing and climbing destinations, I found yoga in 2010 and realized how much of a profound impact a regular yoga routine could have on how I felt in my day-to-day life. Not only did I feel better with significantly less aches and pains, I also saw immediate improvements in my climbing and skiing.

Steele S. - RYT 200
May we be the architect of our own healing. To me Yoga embodies these words and shows up off of our mat. Practicing all types of Yoga has been an evolution of Self the last 8 years. Completing 200 RYT here in Bozeman was life changing along with Vipassana Meditation retreat enduring 10 days of silence. Yoga for me at this time is a moving meditation, cultivating full body awareness and tuning into the bodies innate intelligence. Playing and learning of the body yet also having an depth of connection with who you are. Anything outdoors brings me back to myself, including snowboarding, hiking new trails to jump in mountain lakes, and discovering new types of body movement. Connection is what matters to me in this life, for we are all just walking each other home.
