You know the saying... "You can’t pour from an empty cup"?
Yeah, I’ve been there, too.
I'm Mollie Busby, founder and owner of Yoga Hive Montana and Yoga Hive Studios. I know that feeling of overwhelm when you start your day staring at an unsurmountable list of responsibilities that keeps getting longer. I know that listless glance out the window, wondering how much longer you can last at your current capacity. I know that fleeting desire to throw up your hands, quit, and book a one-way ticket to a far-away place just to escape it all.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur on the brink of burnout, a working mom in need of a reset, or a gal with a vision to change the world (minus the motivation to actually get started): I feel ya, sister. There comes a time when we need to stop, take a hard look at our life, and reboot.
Ladies, it’s time to fill that empty cup — this Montana Yoga Retreat is for you.
Imagine having the time to meditate daily (and someone to show you how!). Afterward, you cozy up in a comfy chair outdoors, enjoying a cup of piping hot, locally roasted organic coffee while you journal your intentions for the day and take in the incredible fall foliage around you. You have the space to notice the warm sun and a gentle Montana breeze on your face. You look out over sweeping views of Glacier National Park, Whitefish Lake and beyond, awaiting the day’s transformational morning yoga class in a beautiful off-the-grid yurt.
And the pressure is off: There’s no experience with yoga or meditation required to attend this Montana Yoga Retreat!
Throughout our 4 days, and 3 nights together, you’ll be challenged (in the best way!) by interactive and incredibly fun deep-dive inquiry sessions to get to the core of how you want to feel on a day to day basis. You’ll laugh, dream, learn and plan in the company of other women who are working through the same discovery process alongside you. Discussion sessions, dharma talks, hikes, and a special trip up to the off-grid community of Polebridge, just outside Glacier National Park, are balanced out with ample freedom to chill, roam the 10-acre property among towering Larch trees and fragrant pines with abundant wildlife around every corner. Although you’ll be close to nature at The Busby Hive, you’re also just minutes away from Whitefish by car, so you’ll have a chance to explore our quaint downtown to your heart’s content during our time off. Evenings feature a more gentle yoga practice in the yurt, designed to reset your nervous system and fill your cup till it runneth over.
At night, rest easy... ...with all the creature comforts of a shared room in our on-the-grid home with electricity, traditional bathroom and running water, a full kitchen and fridge, and high-speed WIFI. Or, rest closer to nature with treetop views and an off-grid experience with a full kitchen and fridge, electricity via solar power, deluxe composting toilet and indoor on-demand hot shower in our custom-built HGTV-featured cabin that sleeps 2.
Classes, coffee/tea, meals and discussion will happen in the round, in our off-grid 30-foot yurt — also featured on HGTV, Discovery Channel, Yahoo, Daily Mail and more.
Throughout the retreat, you’ll fuel up with nourishing, locally-sourced organic vegan cuisine, custom crafted to give your body the most balanced fuel so you can think, see and move clearly for the weekend.
Sometimes all it takes is a few days in nature to give you the boost you need — but this isn’t a vacation where you’re sad to leave after 4 blissful days in Montana. Oh no.
You’ll leave this retreat with the best gift of all: A brighter version of yourself, with the tools to change your life for the better.
You’ll be excited to get home and get in the driver’s seat of your own life. To support you beyond our time together, you’ll be connected to a new sisterhood of women that you’ve spent this time with. And most of all, you’ll get your life back with a full cup — and the knowledge to keep it that way.
This fall, you have the chance to join me on this life-changing Be Bold: Montana Yoga Retreat experience: September 18-22. We only have 8 spots available… so the only question left is:
What are you waiting for?
Welcome to The Busby Hive, set on 10 acres, nestled in a quiet corner just outside Whitefish, Montana. These sweeping views are from our off-grid yurt, set high above the Flathead Valley looking right into Glacier National Park.
At night, rest easy with all the creature comforts of a shared room (or book solo) in our on-the-grid home with electricity, traditional bathroom and running water, a full kitchen and fridge, and high-speed WIFI.
6 shared spots or 3 solo spots available
Our off-grid cabin
Or, rest closer to nature with treetop views and an off-grid experience with a full kitchen and fridge, electricity via solar power, deluxe composting toilet, and on-demand hot water heater experience in our custom-built HGTV-featured cabin that sleeps 2.
Two shared, or one solo spot available.
Our off-grid yurt
All of our yoga sessions, meals and afternoon activities will be held in the yurt, just a short walk from the cabin, a 15-minute walk uphill from the House (or a quick ATV ride up the hill from the house in a pinch!). We truly built this yurt to be comfortable and cozy for any guests who experience it, and this is why we are limiting our retreat to just 8 guests, for a more intimate experience.

Meet your host, Mollie Busby
Mollie Busby is a driven entrepreneur with the spirit of a summer camp counselor and a kind, midwestern smile. Mollie is a seasoned yoga and meditation teacher and off-grid home builder with her husband, Sean. Although the pair now calls Alaska their home, the have deep roots in the Flathead Valley. Wherever they are, the Busbys choose to live close to the land off-the-grid and pursue their life’s work. The pair started Riding On Insulin, which Mollie ran as Executive Director for 7 years, until Sean took over in 2017. It was then that Mollie shifted much of her focus to Yoga Hive, and now, to Yoga Hive Studios, taking the brand beyond Montana. Yoga Hive is known for its inviting vibe, friendly instructors, and willingness to show anyone that yoga is for everybody and every body.
Regardless of the method, Mollie sees her purpose on this planet as cultivating community in small groups of women — whether in a yoga retreat setting or during the 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Trainings she runs in Montana, Colorado and beyond. She enjoys spending time outdoors skiing in the winter, hiking in the summer, and playing with their dogs all year round: Daisy (a Weimaraner), Glacier (Border Collie/Great Pyrenees Mix), Milo (husky/Shepard mix), Powder (Alaskan Husky) and Coldfoot, or Coldie for short (Alaskan Husky).
She and Sean have built a dynamic off-the-grid homestead in the heart of Whitefish, Montana, that’s been featured on HGTV, the DIY Network, Discovery Channel, Yahoo News, Daily Mail, and more. They've also built off-grid homesteads in Homer, Alaska and now, Arctic Hive, Alaska.
Hailing originally from Wisconsin, Mollie brings to Montana her warm, midwestern hospitality mixed with a wide range of yoga training. Her teaching draws inspiration from the Baptiste Yoga community, Unnata Aerial Yoga, and a mix of Tantric Kriya and mantra-based meditation from Sattva Yoga Academy at the foothills of the Himalayas in India.
This unique mix gives her classes a magical feel, with a love for teaching the basics to anyone willing to learn, layered with a profound gift of teaching for transformation.

Yoga Hive Studios was created by Mollie Busby — an entrepreneur in Whitefish, Montana. She founded Yoga Hive Montana, and through a series of serendipitous events, met fitness entrepreneur, Blaine Wilkes, who went on to open the first Yoga Hive studio outside Montana in Louisville, Colorado. Mollie opened Yoga Hive Wisconsin in January 2020. We look forward to continuing to spread the YH love around the world!
