Sharon O'Neill

Sharon O'Neill

Columbia Falls, MT

“If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.”

Sharon, a Flathead Valley native, fell into the alternative healthcare field in her early 20s and found great purpose in helping people achieve pain free living. She decided to obtain her associates degree as a physical therapist assistant in 2011 and it was during this grueling and demanding period she found yoga.

As so many do, Sharon first began yoga to stretch and combat the long sitting hours in college. The higher effects of yoga didn’t take long to sink in. During that time she was immersed in anatomy and physiology and the coupling of yoga was incredibly logical on a more functional level. She began to use yoga as a form of physical therapy to combat her own daily aches and pains, experimenting with movements, breathing, balance, and strength.

In 2015 she took her teacher training through Camp Utopia Yoga, an alignment and functional based training, in Denver and Costa Rica. She’s taught and shared her passion in California, Baja Mexico, Arizona, Washington State, Idaho, and of course Montana. Combining the continuing education of evidence-based physical therapy with the ancient philosophy of yoga, she teaches both intense power classes and a more therapeutic class designed for living without pain.

Over the years, Sharon has turned her passion into a business. She is co-founder of the 406 Yoga Conference, owner and designer of Downward Dog Designs, a yoga based clothing line that donates a portion of proceeds to global pollution cleanup efforts, founder of Warrior Sculpt™, a certified breathwork coach, and teaches regularly in Whitefish, MT.

Sharon is teaching Breathe to Heal: The Love Letter.

Barbie Borinski

Corvallis, MT

In 2000, I walked into a yoga studio for the first time, unsure of what to expect. I walked out knowing I had found something amazing. Over the years, I have explored many different styles of yoga. I have traveled all over the United States and was fortunate to experience many different styles of instructors as well.

In 2016, I started teaching yoga when the instructor/owner of the studio I went to, broke his hip and needed someone to jump in for him.

In 2017, I earned my 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification with SmartFlow by Annie Carpenter.

The most interesting part of my yoga journey began in 2019 as I completed my certification in trauma recovery yoga with T.R.Y. Method ~ Trauma Recovery Yoga. I am certified to lead yoga and meditation adapted for people with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) by LoveYourBrain Foundation. I weave the healing benefits of trauma recovery/informed yoga into every class.

Callie is the heart and soul of Santosha Wellness Center, in Big Sky Montana, where she teaches yoga, offers therapeutic bodywork and practices ayurvedic medicine.

Aside from teaching Callie also owns and operates Santosha Wellness Center, which she opened in 2012. After over a decade of learning and developing a variety of skills in the holistic healing field she has put them all together under one roof and found a great group of other like-minded practitioners and teachers to join her in her endeavor to offer holistic healing opportunities to the community of Big Sky and its visitors.

Alongside teaching yoga, Callie offers a variety of therapeutic bodywork, holistic health consultations and leads seasonal cleanses. She is a certified Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist. She obtained her degree after studying primarily at the California College of Ayurveda, but also spent some time studying under an Ayurvedic Physician in Vrindavan, India.

Chrissy Harts

Chrissy Harts

Whitefish, MT

Chrissy’s relationship with yoga started in 2000 as a compliment to her life as a dancer. As life progressed, her yoga transformed.

Lightening struck very close to her heart, and yoga helped shift the trajectory of her life. Yoga asana opens up a doorway to access and provide insight into the Universe within you, the place where radical change is possible. Chrissy creates a safe space for you to deepen your connection with your body through awareness of subtle energetic changes that occur throughout your practice. She weaves together a unique yoga experience, sourcing from her background in yoga therapy, vinyasa, and shamanism so you can make the most of your time on the mat.

My passion for yoga was discovered a few years ago. I had joined the Limber Tree training program with the intention of deepening my personal practice but open to the possibilities that this path would lead me down. What I learned on this journey was that yoga is about discovering the authentic you. Learning from your past, strengthening your present and building your future. Yoga is so much more than just the poses, it’s about you, the authentic you. My mission is to give my students a judgement-free space to explore yoga.

Lauren Rae Hardev Bleck

Sheridan, MT

I arrived into this world a very spiritually seeking, out of the box human being, not particularly “fitting in” with the status quo. I attended university after high school but never felt that my true calling was associated with my degree.
I went on a life-changing spiritual quest at the age of 25, which led me to my 200 hours in the heartland of India where my vigilant Guru reminded me of who I was and how to BE.
I continued on with my 500 hours through Yoga Alliance, with a focus on Kundalini yoga. This is what I love to share and introduce unto the world.
May the Divine presence within ME, acknowledge and see the Divine presence within YOU,

Lauren is teaching Kundalini Yoga for Spiritual Awareness* on Saturday at 9:30 AM,

Marla Wyche

Marla Wyche

Corvallis, MT

I began my yoga journey while working as a graphic designer at MAD Magazine in New York City. It was a fun job but after a long day in sitting in front of a computer screen my back was aching, compounding pain in my back due to scoliosis. After trying a few yoga classes after work, I was hooked. It was a wonderful to stretch and release tension after sitting at a desk for most of the day and literally “pounding the pavement” of NYC walking most places. My consistent yoga practice alleviated lower back pain symptoms and I felt so much better in my body and mind.

Inspired by my physical health improving and feeling the benefits of managing stress after becoming a mom, I knew it was my calling to become a certified yoga teacher. I trained with YogaWorks in NYC and completed the 200 hour certification in 2008. In the summer of 2018 I completed my additional 300 hour training with YogaWorks in NYC and finished the training in L.A. I am now an experienced, ERYT500 instructor. I am also a certified Kundalini yoga instructor, completing my 200 hour training in 2005 with the Kundalini Research Institute (KRI) at Prana Mandir in NYC.

I have three teenagers who continue to inspire my yoga practice every day. Yoga has given me the tools to journey through life with more ease and grace. One of my greatest joys is teaching and sharing the benefits of yoga with others!
