Yoga Classes

 Weekly Yoga Classes in the Flathead Valley, Montana

Columbia Falls * Whitefish * Kalispell

Classes held at Yoga Hive in Columbia Falls:

Hatha Basics: Mondays from 9:30-10:30am. In this class we will flow with the seasons. Since this is a time of year that brings much change for many, cooler weather and often busier schedules, we will focus on poses that ground, stabilize, and release tension. We will keep the body warm and deepen our connection to the power, beauty and spirit within each one of us.

“I began [Yoga] class with the suggestion by my son that it might help reduce the arthritis pain in my knees. It has done that and so much more! I am in my mid-60s and do modified poses but find that it still helps a great deal with range of motion, stress reduction and balance strength.  I have even been able to reduce my blood pressure medication by half! There is a nice relaxed sense of community which adds a lot too.” — Miles G.

Gentle Yoga:Fridays from 9:30-10:30am. In this class we will set ourselves up for an easeful weekend, but staying lower to the ground, but still incorporating a few standing postures, using props and the wall for support, focusing out our breathing and deep inner awareness & self-love. This is an all levels practice. We can all use some rest!

I’ve struggled a lot with anxiety and burnout, and this class fills me up and reconnects me to the earth. Andrea is an exceptionally sensitive teacher with skills to meet the most unbalanced where they are and help them reconnect to their power. –Cara R.

Restorative Yoga: Tuesdays from 7:30-8:30pm. This class will invite you to the earth. To settle in, let go, renew, rest, and release. Think, a lot of sighing exhales, and leaving ready to make a mug of tea and crawl in bed with a calm mind, and connected to spirit within. 

“You provided me with the word safe, which had been missing from my own practice, and which has been so lovely to meditate on, to use as a guiding principle.” — Mindy M.

Sunrise Flow: New! Fridays from 6-7am. In this class we will step it up a notch from Hatha Basics, adding more standing poses and moving with our breath in and out of basic and intermediate postures & get you ready for your day & weekend ahead. This class is best for those with some Yoga experience.

 Yoga For Your Office!

It may be a challenge for you to make it to a Yoga class, or even find time for yourself between work and family responsibilities. From sitting for most of the day at a desk and at a car, or even if you are using a standing desk but standing still, bodies get stiff and therefore prana (life-force energy) can feel stagnant. For this reason, to boost mental clarity, balance emotions, and lubricate the joints needed to sustain our daily lives, I invite you to bring a Yoga class to your office! If you are interested in setting up a class or would like to learn more, email me at andrea@groundedhere.com
