Meet our new teacher Erica! She'll be taking over the Friday 9 am & 12pm classes in Whitefish 🐝
Erica was born in upstate New York and moved to Montana 7 years ago by accident! She fell in love with the area and her, now, husband a native Montanan. Today, they're settled with their two dogs and a tiny home on 30 acres. Erica first came across yoga in High school when a ski coach introduced it as another form of exercise/stretching to stay in shape for skiing. But it didn't quite catch her attention until college, after a knee injury. Once the knee was healed, Erica's yoga practice stopped again (!) and it wasn't until after Massage Therapy School, she began a more consistent home practice, seeing the benefits of yoga go well beyond stretching and injury rehab. Yoga helped Erica so much that she took her yoga teacher training in 2018 with Yoga Hive, and has been teaching yoga ever since!
Cultivate clarity in your communication, with others and yourself, in part 5 of this 7-part series with Yoga Hive owner, Mollie Busby. To start, you will dive into a short wisdom talk with Mollie about the elements of the Throat (5th) Chakra, followed by a transformational 90-minute yoga journey. The practice will include pranayama, mantra, essential oils, mudras, kriyas, vinyasa and meditation — all rooted in the ancient Tantric teachings of the Himalayan Kundalini tradition, sequenced to radically shift your energy and awareness!
(No experience with any of these elements is necessary to attend. No need to have attended the prior workshops either! Just come with an open mind, and an open heart!)

This week's teacher spotlight is Lune! You can find her at our Kalispell location:
🐝 Tuesdays - Honey Flow at 5:30pm
🐝 Wednesdays - Hive Flow at 7am & 🐝 Saturdays - Heated Hive Flow at 10am!
Lune discovered a passion for movement after being introduced to Hatha yoga by her late father at the young age of 13. Since then yoga has been a constant on her journey, providing release while helping her face the difficulties and trials of life. Yoga has always been more than a physical practice to her and she is excited to share her passion with others. Lune's playful Hive Flow fuses meditation, strengthening, and lengthening. All levels are welcome to practice with her at our Kalispell location.

When I was a kid, my mom told me I’d scream if I was left in a sandbox. I’d cry if I stained a new outfit. I absolutely couldn’t stand being dirty. To this day, every time I stain a new outfit (which is literally anytime I put something new on my body), I still have this moment of shame and disappointment.
Flash forward to spending summers at summer camp. At camp, being dirty was the name of the game. Intermittent showers... playing outside 90% of the time... running around in the mud, dirt, sand, you name it. Dirt-phobia didn’t stand a chance, and I LOVED it. I felt like myself — more focused on my alignment with the earth, than being attached to material "things."
There's a term in yoga for non-attachment to sensory objects that I was practicing before I even knew what a "down dog" was.
Then after my junior year in college, I stopped spending summers in Northern Wisconsin, and I didn’t spend a ton of time getting dirty. In fact, I was the Style Editor of a women’s magazine, so my job was the exact OPPOSITE of getting dirty.
Unbeknownst to me, that weird, unexplainable childhood phobia set back in. I was attached to all my things — and I clung to them, and I incessantly aimed to keep free of animals, dirt, and messes.
Enter: Off grid living.
People ask me all the time why I choose to live off grid. Sean and I have been living off grid in both Montana and Alaska.
Sure, it's hard work. Chopping wood. Waking up to 40-degree (or colder!) mornings in the yurt when the fire goes out. Struggling to start a fire because the pipes aren't drafting. Hauling 7-gallon water jugs in a sled up a steep hill. Riding a snowmachine or 4-wheeler 3+ miles from where I park my car... in the rain, snow, ice, mud or shine.
I love this way of life because I get that feeling I got at summer camp, year round. It helps me feel like myself. Living off grid helps me regularly appreciate the wind. The birds (like I said last week!). The moon cycles. The snow and rain. My days — and power source — are governed by the sun, and my survival is dependent on my own will, instinct and desire. We had the privilege of building our own home, learning all the skill sets we wish we had learned as kids. (Side note: Our full episode of Building Off Grid is now available on the Discovery Network here!)
We all have our own ways of getting gritty in our day-to-day lives, don't we? It doesn't have to be literal dirt under your fingernails! Running a small business, being a mom, volunteering at a nonprofit, working at a job you love, just living life as best as you can. As a part of the Yoga Hive tribe in one way or another, you likely share my same desire to be authentic, intentional, and mindful in your everyday life, right?
If you're ready for a reset this winter, that's exactly what we're doing tonight at BeYou. Harnessing the power of yoga, meditation, nutrition, and self-study, you are guaranteed to experience radical shifts toward doing what you were born to do in this life: Be yourself.
It doesn't matter if you're hard-working entrepreneur, momma, partner, nurse, volunteer or otherwise! This program is for you if you're ready to kick things into gear. Reset. Refresh and Transform the way you live and work.
For 21 days (the minimum length of time it takes to start a new habit!), we will meet once a week on Tuesdays from 6:45-7:45pm for yoga in Kalispell, and from 8-9pm for personal development. You don't even have to be there in person! I'll be recording every session and posting it on our private BeYou Facebook group (or on Google Drive to be downloaded for those who aren't on social media!).
In addition to our 4 in-person meetings together, you'll get daily inspiration and tools to jumpstart healthy habits, including daily yoga and meditation (including videos and audios you can use at home!), inquiry and planning activities inspired by The Desire Map by Danielle Laporte, thoughtful nutrition education with a customized challenge, and more. Plus — I write you an inspiring email every single day to keep the challenge every present in all of our minds.
You'll close out the 21-days with a fresh perspective, the motivation to tackle whatever you've got going on in your life, and the courage to be the best version of yourself. You can purchase the program as a standalone for only $44, or couple it with a discounted month-long membership to Yoga Hive for $132.
In light and love,
Note: If you missed any of the other workshops, you can still attend this one! They aren't sequential.
Cost: 1 workshop, $22

What previous BeYou attendees have said about their experience in this 21-day transformation program:
"It was truly nice to meet you, Mollie, and the experience was just the nourishing experience I needed! I’ve been busy having and raising kids and needed to reconnect with my other dreams and goals again. I have also really missed my connection with my body, so that was a beautiful thing too."
"I love the circle sharing and the asana practice. I like the practice and then discussion because of the amazing power of sharing space with others both on and off the mat. It always amazes me when opening up and being vulnerable, how many people are struggling as well. It reassures me that I'm exactly where I need to be and it's okay to struggle."
"I added more yoga to my life and it feels amazing. It's just what I needed right now. I have also leaned more into meditation and making steps towards allowing more of that in my life. I feel more centered and it gave me something to help guide me out of a hole I was falling into."
