Yoga Teacher & Studio Manager
Holly came to yoga initially in 2008, when she discovered hot vinyasa flow and was instantly hooked. As a long-distance runner, backpacker, skier, and general outdoor enthusiast, she finds that yoga helps her with recovery, strength, and injury prevention, while also balancing out the stress and demands of everyday life. As a teacher, she loves to work with students to deepen their practice, helping them to find strength and flexibility that will enhance all aspects of their lives. Holly completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training, focused on Hatha and Vinyasa styles of practice, with Yogacara Global in the beautiful mountains of Whistler, British Columbia.
Holly spent her childhood in the Flathead Valley and the Front Range of Colorado before school, career, and marriage took her to the east coast. She loves to travel, having visited 43 states and 40 countries so far. In addition to practicing and teaching yoga, she works as a freelance writer, web designer, and small business manager for GlacialEscape LLC.
Originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, Robert found himself home under the big skies of Montana. The importance of community and its impact on people influenced Robert’s professional goals at a young age. He sees the practice of yoga and attendance in class as a form of community that shapes the health of the individual yogi and those that he/she attends class with. Robert’s yoga classes are playful, strength building, and oriented toward acceptance of who you are, both on and off the yoga mat.
Hello all! I’m Maureen Sullivan and I am so excited to be joining the Curative Yoga team as an instructor. I was born and raised in the Flathead Valley before spreading my wings and following my gypsy soul around the country and globe, moving frequently with my corporate position with Target. My passions include yoga, traveling, family and friends, including my dog Madison Fang, physical fitness, animals, being outdoors, Montana, fashion, music, meditation, reading, and helping others. I began my love affair with yoga when I lived abroad in Asia and was intrigued by the religions and history of the region, finding a particular connection with yogic philosophy and practice. My first experience working in a studio was in Philadelphia during college. I continued to practice regularly, but in the fall of 2017 I felt an overwhelming urge to put all my energy into fulfilling my dreams of pursuing a career in health and fitness and sharing my love for yoga and wellness with others. I feel so thankful and blessed to be following my heart and taking this journey, and I look forward to sharing it with the Curative family!
Substitute Yoga Teacher
Erin Burke-Webster, CIYT, is a Certified Iyengar Yoga Introductory I & II level Teacher. After years of practice, Erin began extensive teacher training in 2010 and started teaching classes to adults and kids in 2014. She loves working with all ages and abilities and is currently studying in the Iyengar Yoga Therapeutics Program to pursue her passion of helping individuals address specific health issues through yoga.
Erin strives to make her classes educational, inviting and above all, fun! Following the Iyengar Yoga methodology, she chooses a focus or theme for each class and links the poses so students can observe how each pose affects the next within the sequence. Attention to alignment and clear instruction builds confidence and knowledge within every student. Erin also includes philosophy and breath work to give the practitioner a well-rounded experience.
A native of Rochester, New York, Erin has lived in Montana for 11 years. She loves to hike with her dogs, backpack and explore wild places. Erin studied Psychology and Art History at Boston University and challenged herself physically through four seasons as a collegiate athlete. Yoga became a tool for physical and mental recovery from injury and exhaustion. It is this life-changing experience that drives Erin to care for the health and healing of her students.
Sara was born in England and grew up balancing time between Europe and the United States. Once settled in the Midwest, her desire to help others led her to a career working with juvenile delinquents and family therapy, followed by many years of teaching early education as her immediate family grew. Life was busy and time was precious! So in order to combine her passion for the outdoors and exercise her Labrador retrievers, running became the exercise of convenience. Hundreds of hours later, running had cultivated a love of moving meditation and thus the progression to a practice of yoga.
Upon moving to Montana, Sara finally had the opportunity to pursue an Iyengar 200 hour yoga certification from Anahata Power Yoga. Again, her desire to give back to a community is now manifested through her practice. She hopes to create a time and space for each practitioner to connect to their breath, journey inwards, and build strength and flexibility while cultivating the intelligence of their minds and bodies. Come and enjoy Sara’s playful and energetic flow while learning how to transfer the calmness and stability created on the mat into meeting life with grace outside of the studio.
Sara’s favorite activities include: hiking, paddle boarding, cross-country skiing, Spinning, kayaking and swimming
Sara’s favorite quote:
“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
