Our Teaching Team
My name is Stephanie Evans. I am a Montana native. Mother of four magical spirits. Lover of Nature and movement. I was born with the spirit of a fairy, the mouth of a sailor and the heart of a hippie. I learned early in childhood that Mother Nature and expression with movement were two vital ingredients to a magical existence. The ability to release tensions, aggressions, anxiety and fear with movement while in nature is a tonic.
My Teaching: I would like to teach all who walk through the studio doors how to open your senses to all the magic that surrounds us in this beautiful valley with guided meditations, breath work and movement. Body, mind and spirit. Life’s greatest gifts are right in front of you. Let me help you see them.
With deep roots in Montana and Oregon, Lune has developed a love of the mountains and a connection to nature. She discovered a passion for movement and physicality after being introduced to Hatha yoga by her late father at the young age of 13. Since then yoga has been a constant on her journey, providing release while helping her face the difficulties and trials of life.
What you can expect in Lune's class: Yoga has always been more than a physical practice to her, and she is excited to share her passion with others. Her vigorous Hive Flow will test your focus and concentration and challenge you to discover just how far you are capable of reaching.
I grew up in the fields, forests, mountains and waters of North Idaho. At an early age, my wonderful parents instilled in me a need for travel and lust for adventure. I have had a lifelong, passionate love affair with nature and I draw inspiration from that relationship every time I look through a camera.I found the other half of my heart sipping on an IPA at the brewery where I worked through college. We married on top of Schweitzer Mountain and quickly adopted an abnormally large Golden Retriever whom we appropriately named, Traveler.
I am 200 hour certified through Yoga Hive's partnership with Figure Yoga out of Louisville Colorado, and excited to share my teaching style with the Whitefish community!
Grace, RYT 200, started yoga to complement and support an active/athletic lifestyle.
Through many life changes, yoga has been a constant, a source of physical and emotional strength and balance. She is honored to teach this amazing tradition that connects the body and mind, that is a conduit to health and well-being.
What you can expect in Grace's class: Grace is passionate about learning all different styles of yoga practice, and enjoys teaching pranayama, Kriya practices, and vinyasa-style power flows- all while incorporating safe and meaningful sequences to maximize the physical and spiritual benefits of a yoga practice!
Brandy fell in love with asana, or the physical aspect of yoga, at an early age through cross training for ballet. She had no idea how much more there was to yoga at the time. While spending several years immersed in the holistic health world as an alignment therapist, life eventually led her deeper into yoga, allowing her to fall in love with all of its aspects.
What you can expect in Brandy's class: Generally teaching a Hive Flow, you can typically look forward to an energetic class featuring Himalayan breathwork and active transitions. Meeting you at your level with endless options, her classes work to help you feel grounded yet challenged.
Born and raised in the Flathead valley, I found yoga as a form of self care using YouTube to get started before eventually joining in person classes. Through yoga I found a love for all things health, wellness and fitness. Yoga is more than just shapes we make, it’s also a connection to ourselves that I feel has big benefits for our lives on and off the mat.
I love hiking, walking my doggos, tending my plants, cooking from scratch, moving my body, soaking up the sun and supporting my local community.
What you can expect in Courtney's class: In my class we’ll practice breathe work, kriya and juicy asana flows to set you up and feel amazing! See you on the mat!
Scarlett is a graduate of Yoga Hive's 200-hour yoga teacher training, and we are so excited to have this Bigfork, Montana local on our team!
A teacher by trade, Scarlett dipped her toe into teaching yoga in the summer of 2019 by taking our Kids Yoga Teacher training. By 2020, she was ready to take her yoga journey to the next level. You will love her clear instruction and warm-hearted Himalayan flows!
I found yoga while going through a hard time in my life. As someone who struggled with anxiety and depression for nearly as long as I can remember, yoga gave me a healthy way to cope with all the ups and downs that I dealt with on a daily basis!
I remember the first time I did yoga. I watched the instructor move smoothly from one pose to the next. She was strong, flexible, and graceful in a way that made me crave those qualities myself. Needless to say, I DID NOT feel any of those things during my first class! I left feeling tight, clumsy, and a bit defeated. That said, I also left feeling excited. Despite the fact that moving into any kind of forward fold made me want to cry from the pain (we've all been there right?!), I realized it was extremely useful in helping release the anxiety I struggled with!
I first began with touching my toes and holding a few poses for 15-30 minutes 4-5 times a week. Eventually my practice progressed to online classes. The longer I practiced, the more beautiful results I saw. Not only was I practicing the physical aspect of yoga, asana, I was also beginning to form a meditation practice. This taught me the careful art of observing my thoughts and emotions in an unattached way- thus showing me they did not have control over who I was.
While staying here in Montana for the year of 2018 (read my manager bio for more details!), I found Yoga Hive Montana and took the 200 hr Yoga Training. It's now been three years since I began my practice and am incredibly excited to see how it continues to love and support me in my journey through life! My goal is to continue becoming more flexible and strong- physically and mentally- and continuing to uncover/stay in touch with my most authentic self.
What you can expect from Brittany's class: my teaching style is vinyasa based and full of fun and creative flows that will get you working from head to toe! One of my favorite things about teaching is getting to piece together my class, always doing my best to include something a little different than the class before so student's minds and bodies are freshly challenged! Although I generally teach a Hive Flow -Yoga Hive's power flows- all levels are welcome! There are always modifications that can be made and I am happy to offer them. The main thing when attending my classes is to come with an open mind and judgment free attitude. Yoga is meant to be fun- lets keep it that way!
