Love Yoga

200Hr Yoga Teacher Training 2021/22

"Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu"

May all beings be happy and free and may my life in some way contribute to the happiness and freedom for all.

Love yoga is offering it's first Yoga teacher training through our own Yoga School.


We will be offering this training Live in studio and via zoom. This training is inspired by the teachings of both Baptiste Yoga and Bhakti Yoga and will be facilitated by Holly Purdy and Suzy Aragon. These two teachers will unite their gifts and passions for Bhakti Yoga and Baptiste Power Yoga, to provide students with a deep dive into asana, inquiry, meditation, mantra, music, and mythology.

And yet, this is more than a “yoga” training. This is a human development and empowerment program meant to support you on your life's journey. This training is about fully engaging with LIFE and LEADERSHIP; about sharing your VOICE and SHOWING UP for yourself and others in your COMMUNITY; about UNITING all parts of yourself so that you can be fully present and awake to this sweet life and in service of all beings.

Whether you want to lead studio classes or deepen your own practice by embodying yoga in your family or workplace, you will learn to authentically express and share of yourself, connect with others and create positive change in the world – skills applicable to any leadership role in or out of a yoga studio.

I am extremely picky about group fitness. I have worked in the industry for a decade and taken or taught thousands of classes. You guys should know that most of your instructors are the best in the Flathead Valley. Also probably the very best thing about Love Yoga is the energy and vibe of “come as you are.” The transparency, warmth and courageous leadership provided at your studio really gives people a place to come and heal. Thank you for doing what you do. My mental health is improved because you are there, and that’s EVERYTHING.

 I absolutely love the zoom classes. They may not be the in person classes but for the situation we are all in, it’s a great way to still come together as a community, get a sweat in, and experience some happiness and joy during a hard time. I have loved all the classes I’ve taken at Love Yoga. From barre, to sculpt, to power flow, to vinyasa flows. Everything has been very enjoyable and has really helped me both physically as well as mentally. It’s such an amazing, loving community.

I love the option of ZOOM classes and am so appreciative that you have offered them regularly and will continue to offer them after the studio reopens. I LOVE LOVE YOGA!! I have been practicing with you since you opened your doors and I am proud to say yoga has become an important part of my life. I may not look like an advanced student and may not hit all the poses perfectly, but I'm hooked. I feel a sense of community.
