We believe that true health and wellness come from balance in life: balanced mind, body and spirit. We know that when one of these areas is out of balance, it affects the other parts of life. At Evolution of Balance, we help clients find their life balance. We exemplify balance in our own lives: maintaining personal practices, listening to our needs, and nurturing personal growth.
We believe in sharing knowledge with integrity, in gaining knowledge through inquiry, research and continuing education, and in being open to new knowledge attained through experience and/or unanticipated sources.
We believe in empowering everyone to be the best and most fulfilling version of themselves, to provide patients with tools and skill for self care, to help individuals find bio-psycho-social wellness, and to help the body heal from within.
We believe that we all have a moral and ethical responsibility to find our own ways to improve our community, society as a whole, and the environment. Evolution of Balance welcomes all people of any age, race, religion, gender, or identity preference.

Dr. Blair has been a Montana resident since 1992. Prior to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic, he owned and operated a woodworking business that served Park and Gallatin Counties. After years of debilitating back pain, Dr. Blair found chiropractic and describes the results he experienced as a “miracle in his life.” Being inspired by his health changes, thanks to chiropractic, Dr. Blair decided to change careers and returned to school. While in school, it became obvious that many physical rehabilitation exercises and stretches are, basically, yoga poses; breathing exercises were part of physical rehabilitation education targeted at reducing spinal tension. It became apparent that learning to teach yoga with rehabilitative and therapeutic intension could be a very effective method for healing, recovery and wellness. When instructed from a place of research informed education and alignment principles, yoga effectively brings together multiple physical therapy techniques into a combined package. Dr. Blair practices with the belief that chiropractic and yoga therapies, combined with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, is the best path for healing, optimal health, and life balance.
When not treating patients or teaching yoga, Dr. Blair enjoys spending time with family and friends, skiing, rock climbing, hiking, biking or enjoying any of the unlimited outdoor opportunities that surround us.
