Dr. Erika Putnam, DC

Yoga Instructor


  • Certified - RYT 500 Yoga Instructor


Dr. Putnam moved to Whitefish in the fall of 2016. Originally from a small town outside of Boise, Idaho, she was drawn to Whitefish after coming here to write each fall for many years. She brings with her over 20 years of experience in the chiropractic field, a 500 hour yoga instructor certification and a true passion for wellness.
Dr. Putnam is a 1995 graduate of Western States Chiropractic College. She added yoga to her mix of treatment as she found it added powerful rehabilitation and stress relieve for her patients. She teaches beginner, therapeutic rehabilitation and all levels yoga classes. Most classes include a combination of meditation, breathing, strength and flexibility with an emphasis on alignment for individuals rather than perfect poses. 
Outside of work Dr. Putnam enjoys road biking, hiking, outdoor sporting, snowshoeing, cooking, yoga, writing, babies and her dog, Zen.
