Yoga Hive

Welcome to Yoga Hive
Our Manifesto:

Yoga Hive—like the bumblebee—represents spirituality, celebration and community. Just as the bumblebee visits a hive to store nourishment and cultivate a family, the Northwest Montana communities congregates at Yoga Hive in the same way. Through various styles of yoga, Yoga Hive nourishes minds, strengthens bodies, and deepens souls through guided yoga practice and meditation. The Hive strives to provide classes suitable for all bodies, ages, abilities and budgets. Members span generations and contribute to the cultivation of a supportive yoga family in our northwest mountain town.

We believe that just as the bumblebee is a pollinator of many flowers, our movement at Yoga Hive represents the interconnectedness of our yogis, the Whitefish community, and the world. By moving together, embracing inclusion, and grounding ourselves, we are improving our own physical and mental well-being, while empowering one another to take grace and goodness from the mat, into our lives as messengers of light, love and service.

Our History:

Yoga Hive Studios was created by Mollie Busby — an entrepreneur in Whitefish, Montana. She foundedPicture three studios in the Flathead Valley, 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.

Our team looks forward to many years of growth, love and community in the future!

Mollie and her husband Sean are the owners of Yoga Hive Montana.

After moving west in 2010 from her home state of Wisconsin, Mollie began an important journey. Not only westward bound and in love with (her now, husband) Sean, Mollie’s sense of adventure was just beginning. That year, she made her husband’s idea a reality by incorporating Riding On Insulin — a nonprofit organization that empowers kids, teens and adults living with T1D through action sports. Today, she still serves as the organization’s Executive Director, overseeing over 20 programs, including ski/snowboard camps, mountain bike camps and an endurance team of 100+ athletes in four countries around the world.

​It was during those years that Mollie developed a love for travel and backcountry skiing, and was introduced to yoga. What started as an effort to make friends, ended up blossoming into a love for yoga, meditation and furthering her practice.

Mollie and Sean moved to Whitefish in 2013 because they found the community engaging, stunningly beautiful and the ideal place to raise a family. Mollie trained in the Baptiste-inspired style of yoga at Container Collective Yoga in Lakewood Colorado, and completed the Art of Assisting program through the Baptiste Yoga Institute. She is also a certified Silks Yoga Instructor, and completed her 200 Hour Teacher Training through Figure Yoga in Louisville, Colorado.

​​Mollie and Sean live on an off-grid homestead just outside town with their two fur children, Daisy and Glacier. They live summers in their 30-foot yurt and winters in a 400-square foot tiny house — both of which they built by hand. Follow their homesteading and worldwide adventures at TheBusbyHive.com.
