Fascinated with our physical and mental capacity to do great things, Bree started Motive as an outlet to explore the complexity and potential of our inner and outer landscape.

Mark Allen | Mountain Guru

IFMGA Mountain Guide and owner of the Mountain Bureau, Mark is our go-to guy anytime we step off the mat and into the mountains. We trust him implicitly with a tangle of ropes.

Brianna ‘B’ Sweeney | Mover & Shaker

Adrenaline junkie at heart, this girl “moves”. Over the years B has trained how to move smarter and is teaching other’s do the same on their mats. You’ll meet her on our blog and retreats.

 

Our Students and Biggest Motivators…

WHAT WE BELIEVE

You were born with exactly what you need
to successfully navigate the terrain of your life, daunting mountains and all.
Motive is here to help you access your own potential thru:

 
 

1.

 

<< AWARENESS >>

Some say information is power. We say awareness is. We’ll show you how to maximize your potential, physical and mental, through awareness.

 
 

2.

 

<< ADVENTURE >>

A sense of adventure keeps us open-minded and always learning. If we can laugh, explore and stay curious on and off the mat, we’ll never stagnate.

 
 

3.

 

<< PURPOSE >>

The satisfaction of all endeavors is amplified when we have a deep and clear sense of meaning. We seek purpose in our practice and in our play.

THE MOTIVE WAY

 

HOW WE WORK

Our Motto: Move Mountains, Live Big
When you turn an obstacle into an opportunity you move a mountain.
We’ve developed a simple formula to help you.

PRACTICE + PLAY = PRANA

PRACTICE

WE STUDY STUDENTS LIKE A MAP AND CO-CREATE A YOGA PRACTICE THAT IS UNIQUE TO YOUR PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND LIFESTYLE NEEDS. WE DRAW FROM EASTERN YOGIC TRADITIONS AND WESTERN SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH TO INFORM OUR TEACHING. AND, WE ENCOURAGE A HEALTHY DOSE OF CRITICAL THINKING TO EMPOWER YOU SO YOUR PRACTICE WILL EVOLVE WITH YOU OVER TIME.

PRACTICE WITH MOTIVE IS: SMART, SPECIFIC & DELIBERATE

PLAY

IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO BE DISCIPLINED. WE MUST EXPLORE, JOKE, IMPROVISE AND TRY NEW THINGS. WE STRUCTURE THIS INTO OUR MOTIVE YOGA OFFERINGS KNOWING WE ARE AT OUR BEST WHEN WE ARE HAPPY. STUDIES SHOW THAT WHEN WE LAUGH IT’S LIKE MEDICINE FOR OUR PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SOCIAL HEALTH. MAKING SPACE FOR PLAY CAN DECREASE PAIN, LESSEN STRESS, IMPROVE MOOD, REDUCE ANXIETY, STRENGTHEN HUMAN CONNECTION AND RESOLVE CONFLICT.

PLAY WITH MOTIVE IS: ADVENTUROUS, JOYFUL & FULFILLING

PRANA

PRANA IS THE STUFF STARS ARE MADE OF. SOME CALL IT LIFE FORCE, SOME CALL IT VITAL ENERGY. IT’S UNFETTERED POTENTIAL. WHEN WE HARNESS IT, IT’S THE FEELING THAT ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, EVEN MOVING MOUNTAINS. MAXIMIZING YOUR PRANA IS THE GOAL OF OUR WORK TOGETHER. WITH EQUAL PARTS PRACTICE AND PLAY YOU’LL BE WELL ON OUR WAY TO TRANSFORMING OBSTACLES INTO OPPORTUNITIES.

PRANA IS: YOU LIVING YOUR BIGGEST!

Why “Motive”?

 
 

1.

2.

(adjective) producing physical or mechanical motion

 
 

3.

(adjective) causing or being the reason for something

 
 

Seems pretty fitting to us!

Getting back into yoga can be daunting after an absence. Motive’s instructors make it a wonderful experience by starting from ‘where you are’ and embracing your practice as it begins. Compassionate, inspirational yoga is what Motive provides.
— Lora P.

“I attended a vinyasa flow class at Seattle Bouldering Project. I was so impressed with Bree's ability to facilitate such a large group and guide people into overcoming their need for a personal bubble, and go deep into practice, poses, and mindfulness.” - Laura E

 

I know that when I take your class I will leave feeling full. Full of life, full of love, full of inspiration. You are nothing short of amazing and you shine this light into everything you do. I wish only that I could practice with you daily. - Jodie L

 

“I like the approach that Motive is taking with skilled instructors that take the time to see what each student needs in order to help them reach their goals. It's also cool to see Motive taking things outside the studio by offering weekend retreats and longer trips to some pretty great locations.” - Duffy K

 

“I was immediately taken with Bree's teaching style and when I decided to find an instructor to work with me 1:1 she was the first and only person that I reached out to. I simply dig her teaching style. It's always fun, challenging, and tailored to what I'm working on or needing that particular day. I really couldn't ask for anything more from an instructor/confidant/friend. Highly highly recommend her.” - Brittany H. 

I really resonate with the mission of functional, powerful movement. I’m not trying to look a certain way, I want to FEEL and BE a certain way - accepting, balanced, strong, present, grateful. Motive helps me tap into and manifest those feelings while I work out the kinks in my body along the way.
