About Our Studio

Welcome to Curative Yoga Bigfork!

We opened in historic Bigfork in the fall of 2014, and now provide year-round yoga classes for all levels of students in our beautiful studio space as well as around our Bigfork community. We are proud members of the Bigfork Chamber of Commerce, and seek to connect with local businesses and wellness providers to build, support, and inspire the wellness community in the Flathead Valley.

Many people come to yoga seeking a physical regimen of poses. While Curative Yoga Bigfork offers active classes for all levels of student, our overarching philosophy of Yoga of Mystics®  also offers an invitation to a deeper feeling of physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. This style is most apparent in our specially designed yoga sequence, Curative Yoga™. Curative Yoga Bigfork is inspired and influenced by our sister studio, Curative Yoga Pasadena, and our nonprofit foundation and school, the Samaa Foundation.

Learn More about the Samaa Foundation & Our Inner School of Mysticism
The Samaa Foundation provides professional training in mysticism, yoga, and meditative arts. The heart of our school is dedicated to the ideals of Universal Oneness—unity of all life.  

Humans have an innate desire to seek Truth, something that is bigger than oneself—who created me, where did I come from, and why am I here?  Whether you’re religious or not, one’s curiosity of the inner world is a universal human desire. Everyone has been touched by the beauty of nature, by a kind act from a stranger, or by the pervading peace of forgiveness. We welcome all into the Inner School of Mysticism. The only condition to enroll is if your soul is ready to embark on the spiritual path. Are you ready to discover your life’s purpose and duty?
