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!

Abby W. - RYT 500
Abby grew up in Bozeman, Montana. In 2016, she studied at Kripalu to complete her 200 hour RYT. Since then, she has studied with Embodied Flow and completed her 500 RYT. Abby enjoys teaching a variety of different styles of yoga, including a Vinyasa/Hatha Based Flow and a Slow Flow Yin class. Vinyasa flow focuses on breath and alignment while building heat. Her Slow Flow Yin class invites students to slow down while working on flexibility and mobility. All of Abby’s classes include intentional pranayama and meditation. Abby is fascinated with the mind-body connection yoga allows by cultivating mindfulness as a way to heal on a mental and physical level. She uses somatics practices as a tool for students to establish a deeper connection with their bodies. She is most passionate about providing a safe space for students to explore this concept of meditation through movement and movement as medicine. Holding this container of a yoga class can hopefully help students expand their practice off the mat and into their lives.
Alex B. - RYT 500
Alex Bierut, RYT-500, is a Yoga Instructor/Yoga Therapist trained in-residency at the Amrit Yoga Institute from 2014-2017 and a Therapeutic Thai Bodyworker trained in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Alex moved to Bozeman in November 2017 from the Amrit Yoga Institute to teach Yoga and build a bodywork clientele through his expertise in ancient energetic and alignment-based yoga and Traditional Thai Bodywork. Alex's Yoga-teaching style is accessible to all practitioners emphasizing correct alignment, asana as meditation-in-motion, and Amrit Method Yoga Nidra. His public classes intend to challenge students in a controlled meditative way that breaks free from the pop-culture mold of "yoga as exercise" and returns the practice to its roots as the physical and energetic science of health and well-being.
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.

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.
