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 grew up in Bozeman, Montana. Her yoga journey started during her freshman year of college. Yoga was a natural transition from her dance background, flowing and creating movement through self-expression. Abby enjoys teaching a variety of different styles of yoga including Kripalu flow and a slow flow restorative class. Kripalu flow focuses on breath and alignment while building heat. Her slow flow restorative class invites students to slow down while working on flexibility and mobility. All of Abby’s classes start with intentional pranayama and meditation, as well as allowing time for meditation at the end of class. 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 is most passionate about providing a safe space for students to explore this concept of meditation through movement.
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.
My love affair with yoga really began once I realized how much it positively impacted all my other hobbies. I’ve felt the impacts in my focus, injury prevention, summer and winter activities. My background and training is in a Bikram style hot yoga and I am a true believer that everyone can find a yoga style that works for them.
Peace, Relaxation and Bliss throughout life is my goal for everyone! Yoga is a great way to empower yourself to create your highest potential, no matter your activity level. My yoga instructionfocuses on symmetrical joint stability and mobility to facilitate doing all the activity you want for as long as you want, without injury. I am a practicing physical therapist and understand what it takes to keep joints healthy and injury free. Teaching here at the Spire is a wonderful way for me to combine my long time activities and passions of rock climbing and yoga with overall wellness and health. I am Board Certified Physical Therapist working in an Outpatient setting for the last 12 years and enjoy integrating yoga into my practice. Imagine it; then create it!
Kaitlin began practicing yoga while attending college in Florida in 2006, exploring different styles on and off for 5 years. During the next few years yoga became a constant as she moved from the Caribbean to Maui, back to the Virgin Islands to Portland, OR and finally home to Montana. As the landscapes, cultures, and experiences changed she was able to turn to yoga for a grounding connection and a way to find depth with her fitness, flexibility, and spirituality. A native Montanan, Kaitlin has a natural love for the outdoors where she can be found running and biking backwoods trails, rock climbing, hiking, skiing, rollerblading, playing volleyball and disc golf. She brings laughter and light to her classes and is inspired and humbled by her students.
Kate was born and raised right here in Bozeman, MT. She grew up skiing with her dad, practicing yoga with her mom, and participating in all the outdoor activities Bozeman has to offer. Kate spent some time in Bellingham, WA attending college then returned to Bozeman to finish her degree. In 2013 she graduated from MSU with a B.S. in geology. During her final year of college, Kate attended a nine-month 260-hour yoga teacher training through Nancy Ruby’s Yoga Motion (Yoga Alliance recognized), completing her certification in June of 2014. She enjoys sharing her love of yoga with the community!
After pursuing a career in traditional Western medicine, life threw several curve balls, 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!
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.
Steve is a practicing Doctor of Chiropractic here in Bozeman and has been a climber and yoga practitioner for many years. Because research demonstrates profound improvement with yoga for physical and mental health, he became a yoga instructor to provide therapeutic yoga to patients in his clinic and the community. He brings therapeutic principles to a playful yoga class, here at Spire, that incorporates the inward journey that is the intention of yoga.
In 2011, my sister dragged me to a yoga class after a breakup. I was an emotional wreck and inflexible from years of racing track, and I found staying with myself on the mat and doing the postures excruciating. But the practice slowly helped me to refine myself as I experienced remarkable physical and mental benefits, and one day I signed up for a Power Yoga teacher training in Boulder, Colorado. I moved there from Boston without a mat or a clue about what a great role yoga would end up playing in my life. Power and Hot Yoga offer me practices that are infused with the same intensity as racing –– without the stress-inducing competition. I look forward to growing the community by teaching at Spire. When I am not doing yoga, I'm adventuring in the mountains, snacking, painting, and working on an MFA in Writing through Vermont College of Fine Arts.
