Carolina C.

Owner & Yoga Teacher
Inspired to practice yoga to set an example of living a balanced life for her children, Carolina’s journey has taken her on a deeper path towards spirituality and guiding others seeking peace and harmony. While Carolina has received her 200 Hour Certification from Yoga of Mystics®, she believes that a commitment to teaching yoga is a lifetime journey in which she sees the teacher in all, in particular her well-intended mother, mystical father, supportive and loving husband, strong willed daughter, affectionate son and her trustworthy teacher.

Sara D.

Yoga Teacher
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

Kalee L.

Yoga Teacher

Brought to yoga on a quest for deep, personal exploration, Kalee has been practicing yoga since 2007, and teaching since 2010. Her styles range from everything Yin to Kids, and her class structure is geared towards all levels and all bodies. Her teaching philosophy is rooted in the idea that yoga practice lends itself differently to each individual, and her vast knowledge of the body, physical posturing, and yogic spirituality shows in her ability to accommodate any and all ages, body types, and personalities. Kalee tries to incorporate many yogic ideas in her everyday life and activities because as her favorite philosophy goes,

“It’s not what we do, it’s how we do it…”

When she’s not on the mat, you’ll find her outside, hanging with her family, cuddling with her pack of farm critters, or promoting her art business.

Stacey W.

Yoga Teacher

Stacey Webb has worked in the field of health & fitness her whole adult life but found her passion in Yoga and has been teaching for the past 13 years. She believes that yoga is for “every body” and leads a breath centered gentle flow class. The focus is on listening to our bodies with out judgment or expectations so that we can gain strength, flexibility, balance and an overall sense of well being.

Codi D.

Yoga Teacher

My name is Codi Dobie, and asana or physical movement has always been a big passion of mine. My passion for movement started when I was eight years old enrolling in gymnastics. I loved conditioning my body and my mind so that I could perform skills that sent me flying through the air and landing on my feet. As puberty hit, and my body began to change gymnastics became more challenging than ever. Still wanting to go upside down and not hurt myself anymore, I decided to try yoga for the first time. At sixteen I found myself teaching gymnastics and practicing yoga to help heal my aching body. It was through the asana of yoga that I learned that yoga is so much more than physical movement. In 2012 I took my 200 hour teacher training course and have loved teaching yoga ever since. I like to set a space for my students that allows everyone to feel comfortable practicing at whatever level they may be in. I give lots of options for all bodies, because yoga is not one size fits all.

Katherine A.
