I highly recommend Margaret as a yoga teacher. She is very knowledgable in many respects, including both physical and spiritual aspects of the discipline. Margaret is a precise teacher who provides the necessary guidance to correct long-held bad habits. Her classes are especially tuned toward matching breath to each pose. Attending her classes has enabled me to advance my practice greatly.
Margaret has done numerous classes for my Spa and Salon staff. We have all really enjoyed the experience with her. She comes well prepared with props for everyone and her presence is calm yet strong. Each time she makes a personalized music list, which I really appreciate. She is well versed in yoga, and can customize the classes to fit any experience type. I highly recommend taking classes from Margaret, or organizing your own corporate yoga events with her.

We hired Margaret Elliott Yoga to come in and teach yoga classes to our employees, some of whom had never taken a yoga class. Margaret clearly and intelligently directed our awareness so that we now have a stronger connection with our bodies and the movement of energy through them. Margaret encouraged us to be curious and explore postures, not to adopt a "one size fits all" approach, making yoga safer to practice and teach. Margaret's immense experience and mastery of her craft are immediately evident in the ease with which she communicates insight with humility and integrity. Her genuine commitment to developing the practice of yoga is inspiring and enlightening.

Margaret is a knowledgeable and compassionate yoga instructor. During class she provides specific instructions so you are continually learning and improving, while at the same time she thoughtfully orchestrates a challenging, yet mindful and relaxing class. If you have questions about postures or other aspects of yoga, Margaret is very approachable and helpful. Her hands-on adjustments are the best of any yoga teacher I've worked with; she is intuitive about your body's potential as well as limitations. She gently guides you into better alignment and deeper movement, which opens new opportunities for growth and awareness in body, breath, and mind. I always look forward to classes with Margaret and would highly recommend her for any yoga experience.
Margaret is a gift to the yoga community of Bozeman. I always leave her classes feeling strong and empowered. She gives great adjustments and pointers throughout the flows, which help enhance my practice in a huge way. Margaret’s passion for yoga is obvious, and that translates to classes that are alignment focused, challenging, yet grounding in the best possible way.
I’ve had the pleasure of taking several of Margaret’s all-level classes in Bozeman. I appreciate her ability to focus in on breath and intention while also offering a great sequence of physical postures that open you up and gradually prepare you for more challenging poses toward the end of class. Margaret has a relaxed teaching style that makes students feel comfortable, and does a good job of describing modifications to meet you where you’re at whether that be just starting off on your yoga journey or many years down the path. I also recently began collaborating with Margaret as a teacher available for custom retreat offerings at my small retreat center. She’s been a joy to work with in that regard as well…prompt, professional and kind in her communications. Thank you Margaret!
Being pretty new to yoga, I feel so fortunate to have found Margaret. She teaches at a speed that is easy to understand and manages to challenge me at the same time. When venturing out of your comfort zone, it feels so good to be welcomed with support and encouragement. Margaret is fantastic!
