Holly Purdy 

Founder/Owner/Yoga, Sculpt, and Barre Teacher
E-RYT 500
Master of Education
Certified Booty Barre Instructor

I am humbled and honored to be a teacher and student on the path of yoga, connection, devotion, love, and self-transformation. I am a mother of two daughters, yoga studio owner, friend, and human devoted to living and sharing the healing practices of yoga to make the world a healthier, more connected and loving place now and for generations to come. With deep reverence, I am on the path of Bhakti yoga, a world of chanting, mantra, and spiritually devoted yoga. These elements of yoga have moved to the forefront of my practice and teachings, merging with my great love for movement. Thus, my classes tend to be a mixture of chanting,  spirituality, and intentional, vigorous movement.

Suzy Aragon

Co-founder/Teacher/RN
E-RYT 500
Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher
Reiki 1 and 2 Practitioner

Suzy Aragon otherwise known as Tiny Dynamite is a petite powerhouse packed with spunk, sass and sometimes a bad mouth.  She challenges the status quo, typically takes the path less traveled and is a rebel at heart. Suzy is a mama, yogi, nurse, healer, teacher and leader. She is wickedly passionate about serving others and fiercely leads people to explore and discover their true purpose and path in life.

Suzy is a Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher, E-RYT 500, RN, and Reiki 1 and 2 practitioner. Her yoga journey began in 2007 while attending nursing school and going through a difficult divorce. Getting on her mat did something to her body and mind that she did not understand at the time nor could she explain to anybody else. When she discovered Baptiste Yoga in 2011 it spoke even louder to her and she knew she had found something everlasting. Shortly after being introduced to the Baptiste Methodology she attended Yoga Teacher Training at Namaspa Yoga School. Her love and passion for this practice only grew and in 2013 she attended her first Baptiste Yoga training and it literally rocked her world and everything she had known up to that point. She has continued her yoga journey over the years by attending many trainings with the Baptiste institute and is a graduate of the Baptiste FIT to lead program.

Suzy is also the co-founder of Evoke Energy Yoga which offers programs and trainings in Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, and other types of healing modalities delivered through the Baptiste Methodology. The intention of this offering is to invite others to reclaim their power and to realize and remember their innate ability to heal themselves.

 

In addition she is a practicing nurse and a Nurse Coach "a nurse for the nurses" where she is diligently working towards creating a new paradigm in the way we approach health, healing and challenging the current healthcare model.

 

Suzy currently lives in NW Montana with her baby girl Neve and ski bum partner Jeff. Suzy is a lover of the sun and does her best work on her Yoga mat and paddle board- which is really just a mat on water. Board meeting anyone...?

Anna Bohacs


E-RYT 500 Yoga Teacher
Ayurvedic Health Counselor

Through intuitive movement and mindfulness, Anna is in practice both on and off the mat. Drawn to the practice for the guaranteed work out, she stayed because of the palpable shift she experienced in body and mind. There is so much to learn from our internal and external environments when we give ourselves the space to experience and the quiet to listen! 

 

Due to the transient nature of her partner's job, she has been gifted her the opportunity to teach and practice all over the country, and to learn little nuggets from inspiring teachers along the way. 

 

Yoga and Ayurveda influence the lens through which she sees the world, and the foundation upon which she teaches. Her intention is to provide students with explorative options that allow them to cultivate peace (+ fun and heat, y’all!) in their own bodies, minds, and hearts.

Anne Minnick

Yoga and Sculpt Teacher
Studio Business Manager

While prepping for an Ironman, a friend recommended trying hot yoga to work on flexibility, balance and strength to augment my training. Once I stepped in the yoga studio, I never looked back. I have never experienced a physical activity that was more challenging, pushed me to my outer limits and left me feeling more fulfilled and accomplished. My sincere hope is to have everyone who walks into Love Yoga have a similar experience as practicing yoga can be truly life-changing.

I received my Yoga Teacher Training from Amazing Yoga in Pittsburgh, PA and have been practicing and volunteer-teaching for eight years. In addition to running, open water swimming, cycling, hiking, skiing (and just about any other outdoor activity), I love to read, sew, cheer Ohio State football (go Buckeyes!) and spend time with my German Shorthair Pointer, Remington. I am also the Business Manager for Love Yoga, and have been overjoyed with the open-arms, welcoming culture I have experienced in northwest Montana.

In 2019, my husband and I fulfilled our dream of relocating to beautiful Whitefish from the flatland of Columbus, Ohio. Prior to moving to Whitefish, we lived in a variety of midwest states for almost 30 years and raised two daughters that we are so proud of.

"Between our heads and our toes, there are a million miles of unexplored wilderness."

 

Madeline practices yoga as a journey towards embodiment, a coming home to ourselves. She invites students into awareness of their physical body - through movement and wonder. Her degree from Penn State in Kinesiology and immersion in rhythm as a life long tap dancer, provide a strong foundation for her teaching. Madeline graduated from the Love Yoga 200 hour teacher training in 2022.

 

In her classes you can expect a welcoming of every body, a purposeful playlist, and intentional, creative movement. She loves teaching in the early mornings and will greet you with an energetic smile no matter if the sun is up yet or not.

 

When Madeline is not teaching yoga, she is likely at Spotted Bear Spirits [just a few blocks from Love!] where she works as the Tasting Room manager and Creative Director. Madeline is married to her best friend Keegan and has two mystical and delightful black cats.

Sabrina McClure

Barre Teacher

Sabrina was born and raised in San Diego, California and moved to
Montana last spring. Growing up, she spent every summer in
Whitefish with her family and always dreamed of moving to the
beautiful Flathead valley one day. After marrying her high school
sweetheart and having their daughter, they decided to finally make
the move and have not looked back since!


With a background in dance, cheerleading, Sabrina is no stranger to
a good beat and creating energy in a room. She has been teaching
barre for 6 years and also has a passion for pilates and weight
training. She studied nutrition in college and has a genuine love for
helping others be the best version of themselves.

 

When taking Sabrina’s class, you are guaranteed to hear good music, be
encouraged and leave stronger (and a little more sore) than when you
walked in. Her mission is to spread positivity, joy to others and
teaching them how to love your body through exercise.

 

When she isnot teaching, you can find her at the lake with her husband and
daughter, at the dog park with their two dogs or finding a great spot
for happy hour and food. See you in class!

Brianna Barraza

Yoga Teacher

When I was a little girl my father had a yoga studio in Marina Del Rey, California. You'd think it was in the blood, but truthfully the yoga bug didn't take on right away. I think I giggled throughout my first class, and maybe even my second and third. Fortunately by my fourth yoga class I started to have clarity that I had never experienced before. It wasn't too long before my love for yoga finally, beautifully, consumed my body and my soul. My eyes began to widen. I wanted to learn everything about it. When I decided to get my certification, my baby brother suggested that if I wanted to take it seriously I should learn where it all started. So off to India I went.

Naive, excited and not knowing what to expect for the first time, I was completely out of my comfort zone. Getting on the plane I felt myself having a mini panic attack. The anticipation of following my dreams was frightening and exhilarating all at once. I imagine the experience was not unlike a sheltered child going away to summer camp for the first time. 

I flew down to Goa, where I did my first 200 hour teacher training with Tarun Agrawal, owner of Kranti Yoga. I believed I learned more about life in that one month in India than I did in 12 years of grammar school.

Over the years I've studied with a variety of teachers including Natale Ferreira, Morgan Lee, and Mark Robberds. Not long after that I completed the Yogaworks Bridge Program with Malachi Greves, and full 500 hour program with mentor Calvin Corzine. 

As a student, I enjoy practicing many different styles of yoga. My classes are a blend of what I practice (Ashtanga, and Vinyasa Flow). I teach to share the many benefits of yoga so that students feel empowered and connected.

Chrissy Harts

Yoga Teacher

Wayshower, Change-agent, Healer, Guide, Explorer of the Great Mystery, Chrissy strives to share her fascination with the neuroscience behind yoga through her teaching. She loves to hold space for students to explore their own strength and realize new possibilities in their yoga practice.

Bethanie Funderburk

Sculpt and Yoga Teacher

Yoga has been a huge part of my life since I started practicing in 2013. Once I graduated and no longer played college basketball, yoga filled the void of missing basketball and became one of my biggest passions.

 

Outside of yoga, I enjoy running, hiking, reading, biking, the outdoors, and being with family and friends. I have a crazy dog named Fria who is my running buddy, and a wonderful husband named Brad who hates running, but is my sidekick in everything else. We met in PT school and are both physical therapists here in the valley. I’m originally from Missouri and moved to Montana in 2017 to enjoy the beauty and outdoors the state provides.

 

I am so grateful for the community and love that this studio provides. I love to lead a sweaty, challenging, and upbeat class. Hope to see you all on your mats!

Amanda Person

Sculpt and Barre Teacher

After having 2 littles, Mand was searching for a safe, energetic, and inspiring space to step back into movement. She finally found a place she LOVEs ;-)! 

 

Amanda (Mand) has a Pilates background, but was looking to teach something slightly different, with sprinkles of Pilates movement. She quickly jumped into the Warrior Sculpt training to challenge myself and my body - it was more than she ever expected. She left feeling inspired and the need to spread that inspiration to others.

 

She hopes to share her love of movement through fun music, laughter, and the occasional dance party! Can’t wait to see you! 

Val Butts

Yoga Teacher

Val is a classroom teacher turned yoga teacher, mom of 3, and dog mama. Originally from San Francisco, she grew up as a classical dancer and has also lived in Honolulu. She started practicing yoga around the same time that she began her teaching career, and witnessed how her practice kept her grounded, contributed to wellness, and connected her to the community. She believes in the power of linking breath and movement, as well as making self care and yoga accessible. Val enjoys shopping, SUPing, and exploring her husband's home state with her family.

Sarah Downen

Yoga Teacher

Born and raised in Montana, I was first introduced to yoga while attending college in Bozeman. After my first class I knew I had found something special. Yoga was a way for me to strengthen my body but also quiet my mind. Wanting to deepen my practice I took Love Yoga's first 200hr teacher training! It was there that I found my sweet spot for Yin Yoga. I am genuinely honored to teach this practice to my community as a means to help others cultivate a connection with their mind, body, and spirit! Expect my classes to be warm, welcoming and very grounding. I incorporate aromatherapy and reiki in my classes for a little extra love!

Outside of the studio I love to be in nature, adventuring with my doggo Clancy, or reading a good book.

Courtney Nelson

Yoga Teacher

Hi there, I’m Courtney! I’ve been teaching yoga for almost a decade now and I am so grateful to have found LOVE – a warm, safe space with a family of yogis that welcomed me into the fold.

After years of resisting peace and hiding from unresolved trauma, yoga saved my life. The movement, the breathwork, the meditation – these modalities create space and give us a place to rest into the reality of our own experience and find growth and healing in the present. Because of my own experience, I feel a deep calling to continue sharing this beautiful ancient practice, to help guide others toward their personal truth and highest sense of self.

The grounding and calm that yoga offers saturate the other pieces of my life. When I’m not on my mat, I’m helping people find a home that speaks to them or navigate selling a home that holds many memories. I love being a real estate agent in this amazing community and my yoga practice helps keep me centered and balanced.

I am an avid hiker and lover of poetry, an Aurora Borealis chaser and a live music junkie. I live in awe of these mountains, this wild land and spend as much time as I can deepening my connection to the nature surrounding this valley. Often, I am accompanied by my three husky children – Nya, Luna & Nash – with them life is full.

Hope to meet you on the mat, on the path or somewhere along this perfectly imperfect journey.

Jaclyn Thompson

Yoga Teacher

For me, practice fosters peace, strength, and stability, and it is a great privilege to guide others in fostering the same within themselves. Since attending my first Power Yoga class in 2012, Yoga has ebbed and flowed in my life like a tide. Through times of bliss and sorrow, transition and comfort, my practice returns to me time and time again, plugging me into my purpose.

DSC00599.jpg

Tiffany Nitschke

Yoga Teacher

Tiffany is a Montana-native, lover of nature and connection to the land, and wide open spaces. She’s passionate about self-care through means of nutrition, movement, importance of internal dialog, and sustainability to Mother Earth. An adventurer through many modes, primarily cycling, and now YOGA as a means to build endurance, get strong, go further, arise to difficult mental challenges, and have a deep connection with friends and the community. She loves to travel and explore all this amazing world has to offer. She loves the mental and physical challenges that arise when pushing limits on and off the mat. Even more important, yoga is a practice to create stillness in the mind, to reduce anxiety, and to practice finding clarity.

 

Tiffany has been practicing yoga off and on for the last several years, but once she started going to hot yoga at Love Yoga, her practice became consistent. The heat accompanied with mindful movement and self inquiry had her hooked. Her practice quickly became a staple in her life. As she works through her own health journey, yoga has been a saving grace, aiding in healing. Tiffany completed her 200-Hour YTT at Love Yoga in 2022.

 

In her classes you can often expect to be physically challenged in yoga poses with intentional, powerful music to keep you flowing. In the sedentary, technology-driven society we live in, you can expect counter balancing self-care centered around chest & shoulders openers, along with hip mobility. She believes in the importance of human touch. When attending her classes, she will likely gift you with her healing energy through the power of gentle assists. She strives to bring a space for healing, deep connection, and space.

Amanda Jenkins

Primal Flow & Buti® Yoga Teacher
RYT 500 Yoga Teacher

There is nothing like that feeling of leaving a great yoga class, but Amanda believes YOU have the power to create that natural high, at will.  Do something just for the sake of doing it, with no expectations.  Ditch the routine.  Suspend all self-judgement.  Take a new class, discover a new format, a new teacher - at Love Yoga, you can't go wrong!  Trust & choose yourself, let go of outcomes & attachments, get weird, be fully with what is.  YOU are the magic.  Class is just a reminder.

Discovering Buti Yoga was the spark that ignited Amanda's passion to share yoga with others.  She attended her first class with a friend because it was billed as a "yoga rave," involved music (hip-hop & EDM in a yoga class?!?) & dance.  It didn't take itself too seriously, was legitimately FUN & created a profound sense of community.  Teaching it was a way to tap out of the grind & tap back into creativity.

Since completing her initial Vinyasa 200 hour, she has been certified in Buti Yoga, Primal Flow, DEEP by Buti, and Yoga Medicine's "Yoga for Athletes," completing training with and being mentored by well-known instructors from around the country.  In 2021, she published the book "Go From Hustle to Flow: Yoga + Mindset Practice to Release Overwhelm, Cultivate Peace, and Redefine Success."  She completed her 300 hour with Michelle Young's MVP program in 2022, with a focus on energy-balancing through Yin, Restorative, Yoga Nidra & Adaptive Yoga.

Amanda has found balance in her life by alchemizing her love of the outdoors, music & dance with her love of yoga.  A former workaholic who bootstrapped 3 companies with her husband, Amanda has worked from home since 2009.  Originally from the East Coast, Amanda has taught yoga around the Flathead since 2018.  She lives in Whitefish with her husband and two kids.

Lacey Walsh

Yoga Teacher

After having her second child, Lacey fell in love with fitness via barre. Her interest in fitness expanded to SoulCycle and circuit training. On intermittent trips to Montana, she found Love and specifically yin yoga, which changed her life. At Love, her wellness focus shifted from body-improvement to energy-balancing, mind-wellness and slowing down to sit in the moment. Her deep appreciation of the Love community and offerings led her to complete Love’s YTT’s 200-hour training in 2022.

 

Lacey’s love of the arts, nature and meditation fuels her classes with bits of breathwork and poetry commonly found throughout. Her next step is reiki – in which she will be certified in October.

 

When Lacey is not in the studio, she can be found hiking, on the water, or with her family (musical-theater daughter, engineering-minded son, and three life-filling doggos – all of whom she is eternally grateful for).

Carly Westensee

Barre Teacher

Carly Westensee has always loved acrobatic activities! Growing up, she was a gymnast and then a competitive cheerleader in Louisville, KY. In college, Carly transitioned to an artist's lifestyle, getting her undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky in Fine Arts with a focus in ceramics, sculpture and art history. Out of college Carly realized she was missing the connection with moving her body and she tried barre classes! It wasn't long before she was asked to teach. Carly first certified in barre amped method in Franklin TN in 2011, and then moved around the country certifying in several different barre techniques, aerial fitness, TRX, board yoga, power sculpt and was a personal trainer for 5 years.

 

Recently, Carly graduated with her doctorate in occupational therapy from Rocky Mountain College in Billings. She has been happily back at home with her husband, dog and baby ever since spring of 2020 when everything went virtual. Carly is back teaching at LOVE because she enjoys helping people connect their bodies to their minds, escaping daily stressors to get strong and release endorphins! All levels can participate as she is excellent with describing body positions and verbally cueing corrections. Carly enjoys skiing, mountain biking, gardening and painting in her spare time. She loves helping people get strong and avoid injuries so they, too, can enjoy favored leisure time activities.

Dayna Diamond

Yoga and Barre Teacher

Dayna always has a smile on her face and is ready to share her energy with the world. You can usually find her playing snowboards with her friends, ripping around on her dirt bike with her man, or hanging with her doggie.

She started her yoga journey while going to college in Denver. While living in Kauai, it became consistent and started changing her life. The Goddess like classes on the beach and the community that came along with it inspired Dayna to want to continue to learn more!

After to moving to Whitefish, Dayna found Love Yoga and started trying new classes. After belting out her first Om and her first chant she was hooked. She completed Love Yoga’s 200hr teacher training and Warrior Sculpt training.

You can be yourself in her classes. She wants to share the power of being you through laughter or even mistakes. Her favorite way to start a class is with chanting!

Rita Bennett

Yoga and Barre Teacher

Rita intends to provide classes where students build both strength and increase flexibility in their bodies; find peace and clarity in their minds; rejuvenate their souls; and gain a sense of connection with the yoga community. In Rita’s classes, students can expect to sweat and move, stretch it all out in some longer held, juicy poses, and to honor yoga’s roots by working with breath and meditation, and learning about yoga philosophy and spirituality. Rita hopes students leave her classes feeling grounded, peaceful, and ready to spread more love and positivity in the world.

Rita has been practicing yoga asana for a little over 15 years, after the end of her ballet dancing days. For many years, yoga asana provided a balance to her physically demanding job working for the U.S. Forest Service. More recently, Rita has started to explore and grow her appreciation of the other limbs of yoga. After focusing on her own personal practice for so long, Rita felt called to dive into teaching and completed her 200 hour training with Love in March 2023. She is now working towards her 500 hour training with Eoin Finn’s Blissology yoga program. Rita loves spending time outside hiking/backpacking, trail running, hunting, paddle boarding, Nordic skiing, and gardening. Rita has a one year old cat that acts more like a dog and accompanies Rita on walks in the woods and mellow paddle board trips. Rita used to work as a wildland firefighter and is still involved in fire management. In the fire season she can get called out to assignments anywhere in the US and can be gone for two to three weeks at a time working 16 hour days!

Nancy Wilson

Barre Teacher

I am very excited to be joining the Love community as a new barre instructor under the exceptional guidance and training of @Brittany.Carden 

 

My focus in class will be to give you a fun and strength-focused full body workout, accessible and modifiable for all fitness levels, while we all groove to energizing beats. I’m the youngest of nine kids, born and raised in Kalispell. I have an undergrad degree in Fine Arts from New York University and a PharmD and MBA from University of Montana (go GRIZ!). I work inpatient hospital pharmacy for my “day job” when I’m not chasing after my two awe-inspiring boys, ages 7 and 3. My husband Erik is a Whitefish native and some locals know him as a “Flying Wilson Brother.”

 

You can find me snowboarding on Big Mountain, hiking in Glacier, biking around town, and floating the river. I love to make art and great food and always interested in knowing a delicious recipe you want to share.

 

I can’t wait to see you in the barre studio for a dynamic strength workout to an awesome playlist ;) Also feel free to DM me before class with music requests  See you in the studio.

Maggie Graham

Yoga and Sculpt Teacher

Born and raised in Alaska, I learned not to take life too seriously and enjoy a playful blend of grace and grit. I live in Somers with my sweetie and my two kids who keep me busy driving so much I’ve entertained the idea of becoming a pro race car driver to spice things up. For now, I just keep practice riding my motorcycle on the side.

 

Besides being over forty and keeping my kids alive into their teen years, I’m also qualified with a bachelor’s in social work, a certification/license in massage and cupping, and teaching certifications in yoga and barre. I’ve enjoyed teaching all peeps from preschoolers, high school sports teams, firefighters to seniors. I love all things wellness related, naps, flowers, dance parties, books, getting outside and especially being near the water or on a boat.

Katie Halsted

Yoga Teacher

As a licensed clinical social worker, registered yoga teacher and someone who values authenticity, creativity, inner peace, compassion and fun, it is in the yoga room that all her passions and interests seem to collide. Katie is fascinated by the human condition and endlessly curious about how we transcend our challenging experiences and limiting stories to express ourselves fully. As a social worker and clinical therapist, she noticed that my clients benefitted from the breath, mindfulness and connection to body that yoga embraces. And as a yoga teacher, she has come to realize that physical movement is often the entry point for students’ personal healing journeys.

 

In her class you will find a space to explore your own experience and encouragement to meet challenge with authenticity. You can expect breath/meditation to drop into the practice combined with rigorous, flowing movement and a dose of great music to leave you feeling strong, grounded and uplifted in your body.

Claudia Covert

Barre Teacher

Movement and fitness has always been a huge part of my life and I am so grateful I get to share this experience with my clients and students. Barre has been one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences throughout my life. The mind body connection through small intricate moves is what fuels me. I have a pilates background, but fell in love with barre a couple years ago when my love for music came to be.

 

In my class you will find upbeat and fun music that drives the class. In a judgement free zone, we will move to the beat of the music and JAM. I just moved to Montana from Texas with my fiance and golden retriever puppy. We are so in love with this town and love taking long walks, listening to live music and eating the best food! You will probably see us at Taco Tuesday at Jalisco's or sitting on the patio at Whitefish Golf Club. I am so excited to be a part of the Love Yoga and Barre family and cannot wait to see you in my classes.

Jasmine Pina

Sculpt Teacher

Jasmine considers herself a "Jill" of many trades and master of none. Forever a student and always in a state of evolution. She lands in Whitefish as a former Denver based, indoor cycling & hybrid fitness studio owner called the Rhythm Revolution. During its tenure in the Denver fitness scene, RR productions grew into wildly unique LIVE fitness concerts and retreats held all over the state.

 

With 15 years experience, Jas is widely versed in multiple modalities including cycling, strength training, sculpt, buti yoga & barre. Author of the Beat Clinic, a nationally accredited musicality education for fitness professionals; her teaching style is rooted in the science and research behind music and how it enhances physical performance. By allowing SOUND to be the real guru here; specific beats, tempo and rhythm in any given track she plays, is the conduit utilized to lead her classes. Ultimately known as “beatygypsy”, her DJ moniker; her recipe of combining underground electronic music and exercise, has produced a lot of sweat, smiles and dance moves.

 

Off the mat, you can find her sometimes performing behind the decks in local underground music shows. Or in the woods, because she loves camping, and the snow. An entrepreneur at heart she’s also a creative constructionist in fabric, garment, home interiors and digital design. Her most notable life’s work though - a mother of two brilliant young adults that she’s incredibly proud of.
