Yoga Flow Helena MT

We wanted to give you a a description of Mechelle’s Wednesday and Saturday classes as they are Baptiste inspired. Here is a bit of background and a breakdown of what you can expect from this incredible lineage of yoga and from the awesome Mechelle!


Baptiste Yoga™ was founded in the 1940′s by Walt Baptiste and through his son Baron, it has evolved into a practice that holds true to the spirit of its creation while remaining accessible to anyone today.  The physical aspects of Baptiste Yoga™ style are inspired by the hatha yoga teachings of Krishnamacharya and his students Iyengar and Desikachar, whom Baron Baptiste studied with personally from a young age.

The Baptiste Yoga™ practice and programs are designed to empower you with the focus, training and insight you need to achieve consistent results in the most important areas of your life. A potent physical yoga practice, meditation practice and active self inquiry are used as tools of transformation – encouraging participants to reclaim their full potential, discover creativity, awaken passion, create authenticity, confidence and new possibilities.

The Baptiste Yoga™ practice supports you to raise your vitality and physical power and empower you to create accelerated results in your overall body strength and confidence. This practice will challenge and support you in attaining the results you desire and deserve in your life.

Baptiste Yoga™ is practiced by people across the world and from all walks of life; from professional athletes; parents, teachers, Fortune 500 executives, and community leaders; individuals who have shaken depression, dissolved anxiety or lost weight and kept it off; people who have created inner peace, passionate relationships; sparked inspiration in their life’s work and created new possibilities in virtually every realm of life.

Living the practice and using the tools of Baptiste Yoga™ you can truly experience the powerful momentum that comes from living life at the peak. The distinctions, practices and tools of Baptiste Yoga supercharge those aspects of your self and your life where you are already able and successful and produce breakthroughs in power and ability where your vitality and way of being or dealing with your life circumstances and challenges has been less than optimal.

All Baptiste teachers promise an experience that will not only stretch, strengthen and empower you in body and being, but that will be more FUN than you have ever imagined possible. We don’t pretend that our partnership in your empowerment will be effortless—but it will be extraordinarily rewarding.

Your time has now come for action. Welcome to the world of Baptiste Yoga™.
