Bemidji residents looking for a clean, inviting space to escape from the stress and distractions of daily life can now find respite at Lily Pad Yoga. The city’s first-and-only hot yoga studio opened its doors March 2017.
The studio – consistently kept between 85 and 105 degrees – provides varying levels and styles of classes seven days a week, satisfying yogis from beginner to advanced. Winter classes will focus on hot yoga practices. As the weather gets warmer, Lily Pad Yoga will branch into the community for pop-up events in parks, breweries, wineries, shops and more.
Lily Pad Yoga founder and instructor Natalie Welle believes in the power of yoga to transform, improve and change lives – as she credits it with helping her evolve into who she is. She’s a Bemidji native and has practiced and taught yoga in Alaska, California, the Twin Cities and is now fulfilling her dream of opening a studio in her hometown.
