I'm new to hot yoga, what can I expect?

Get ready for a journey that will change your life in all the best ways! 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. 

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.

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. 

Do you have mats and props I can use?

Due to Covid-19, we will no longer be renting mats or water cups. Please bring your own. We also have them 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.

Not Sure of Something? Just Ask! :)

I am extremely picky about group fitness. I have worked in the industry for a decade and taken or taught thousands of classes. You guys should know that most of your instructors are the best in the Flathead Valley. Also probably the very best thing about Love Yoga is the energy and vibe of “come as you are.” The transparency, warmth and courageous leadership provided at your studio really gives people a place to come and heal. Thank you for doing what you do. My mental health is improved because you are there, and that’s EVERYTHING.

 I absolutely love the zoom classes. They may not be the in person classes but for the situation we are all in, it’s a great way to still come together as a community, get a sweat in, and experience some happiness and joy during a hard time. I have loved all the classes I’ve taken at Love Yoga. From barre, to sculpt, to power flow, to vinyasa flows. Everything has been very enjoyable and has really helped me both physically as well as mentally. It’s such an amazing, loving community.

I love the option of ZOOM classes and am so appreciative that you have offered them regularly and will continue to offer them after the studio reopens. I LOVE LOVE YOGA!! I have been practicing with you since you opened your doors and I am proud to say yoga has become an important part of my life. I may not look like an advanced student and may not hit all the poses perfectly, but I'm hooked. I feel a sense of community.
