How old do you have to be to practice?
Students must be 16+ years old for our classes heated at 95 degrees and above. Students under age 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent. Students 12 and under must have a parent in attendance with them.
Do you rent mats and mat towels?
At our Whitefish studio yes. At Kalispell, we rent mats, but no towels.
What do I need to bring to class?
Yoga mat (if you have one) and a water bottle. We also rent mats, mat towels, and have drinking cups.
I have a FREE CLASS card. How do I redeem it?
Simply go to our schedule, find the class you'd like to attend, and then come to class 10-15 minutes early. Whoever is teaching will get you all set up with your free class. No need to book prior. The process is the same for if you bring a friend on a membership pass.
Do I need to pre-register for class?
It’s a great idea to pre-register for your class using the MindBody app. Click here to access our Class Schedule on MindBody. However, you can also sign into class when you arrive! We do lock the doors when class starts, so please don't be late.
I'm new to hot yoga, what can I expect?
As with anything new, please be compassionate and patient with yourself. Remember it isn’t possible to get everything right away; even the most experienced student is still in the process of learning. Come with an open mind, expect to have fun, breathe, sweat and move. Don’t worry about doing it “right”- just show up!
If I'm not flexible, can I do yoga?
We don't do yoga because we're flexible. We do it to help us gently move toward flexibility. BUT...You do need to be mentally flexible and open to new possibilities to participate in hot yoga. Just show up and focus on breathing, moving, and honoring where you are today. Every body is different. Come to learn about and develop yours!
What should I wear?
Wear Comfortable Workout Clothes. Something you’ll feel free to stretch + sweat in. Don’t Worry About Shoes. We practice in bare feet.
What should I bring?
Bring a Yoga Mat, Towel + Water. All of these items are available to rent or buy at the studio. Leave Bags, Phones, Shoes +Personal Items in the Cubbies. Life is full of distractions; we try and keep them outside the practice space. We recommend locking valuables in your car.
When should I arrive?
Please arrive fifteen minutes prior to class. Please DO NOT come into class after it has started.
Can I eat before class?
It is best to practice on a mostly empty stomach. Avoid heavy meals 2 hours before class. Foods appropriate for pre-class snacking include fruit, nuts, or a light energizing snack.
What should I drink to replace electrolytes?
Drinking water will not replace lost electrolytes. Consider coconut water or electrolyte tablets in your water. We sell both in studio.
How hot are your hot classes?
Our hot classes are between 95-100 degrees. Our less-heated classes, such as sculpt and barre, are 90 degrees. We use light humidity to increase your sweat, which has so many cleansing benefits.
Are all your classes hot?
No. Please check the Class Descriptions page for information on whether a class is hot or not.
What if I need to cancel a Workshop that I signed up for?
That's no problem - things happen! You will not be refunded the cost of the workshop unless cancelled 48 hours in advance.
Do you have mats and props I can use?
We encourage you to bring your own mat and props, but we do offer mat and towel rentals for $3. We also have our favorite brands of these items available for purchase in studio.
I am recovering from an injury. Can I still come to class?
We recommend that you check with your physician and/or physical therapist and follow their recommendations. We encourage modification and/or omission of any movements that don’t feel right to your body for any reason. Let your teacher know if you are having trouble during a class or are looking for ways to continue practicing yoga while injured.
