Hot Yoga is a 90 minute class. Students of every experience level build strength, balance and flexibility. This challenging workout takes place in a heated room to encourage an increased range of motion in muscles, joints and ligaments. The set series of compressions and extensions help:
Power Yoga is a 60-90 minute class. This Vinyasa, or flowing style, yoga builds strength and flexibility through continuous movement. The changing series of standing, balancing and floor work is designed to invigorate the body and focus the mind. Like Hot Yoga, most Power Yoga classes are held in a heated room*. Power Yoga classes provide a dynamic and exciting workout to help:
Yin Yoga is a 60 minute class. It is a gentle and meditative Yoga practice designed to deeply stretch the connective muscle tissue. Yin complements and counterbalances other muscle building and strengthening practices. Yin Yoga is not held in a heated room. Relaxing and restoring Yin classes help:
T’ai Chi is a 60 minute class. It is an internal, introspective Chinese martial art practiced for its many health benefits. Our T’ai Chi class offers movements designed as warm-up exercises to provide moderate aerobic activity.

I have had neck and back issues for my whole adult life and have spent a good amount of time and money on chiropractic care. I started attending classes at Lakeview Yoga 6 weeks ago. Since then I have had no back or neck pain, and have range of motion in my neck that I haven't had since I was a kid. My balance, strength, flexibility, and energy level have all noticeably improved.
Schedule of Classes

* held in a non-heated room
My comfort zone typically entails a gym with plenty of iron since I’ve competed in the IFBB as a pro bodybuilder since winning the 2004 USA...Vidal quickly welcomed me to class and really made the learning experience enjoyable and challenging. I’ve found performing hot yoga (particularly the stretching, balancing and mental aspects) three days a week compliments my weight training program. I leave feeling renewed and energized.
Yoga is for health, for wellness, for Life. Join us in healing our bodies through yoga, meditation, and holistic practices...we are more than a yoga studio, we are a wellness center where people gather to share ideas and practices.
Frequently Asked Questions
what should I wear?
What you are comfortable in. Everything will get at least a little damp. Snug fitting clothes work best. Above-the-knee bottoms are recommended. Basically, men wear shorts (lined above the knee), and usually go without a top. Women wear either a bra-top, full length sleeveless athletic top, or tank top, with either lined shorts, bicycle length tights, or yoga shorts.
what should I bring?
Bring a large bath towel and a bottle of water. Should you ever forget these items, we sell water for $1 and rent towels for $2. Also bring a basic sticky yoga mat if you have one. Alternatively, you may rent one for $2.
do I have to pre-register?
No. Just come 20 - 30 minutes early.
what if I cannot tolerate the heat?
Frankly, few people can in the beginning. You are encouraged to lay down as much as you need to. For your own benefit, as well as the benefit of the teacher and all other students, you are not allowed to go in and out of the room.
what if I have an injury?
It is strongly advised that you let us know of any injuries or concerns. Yoga does help many people with chronic pain by helping the body to regain its balance between strength and flexibility, movement and awareness, as well as from the many healing and detoxifying abilities from the heated room. As always, if you are under a doctor’s care for an acute condition, please consult your doctor prior to starting any exercise regime.
Leave your mind at the door and check into Lakeview yoga. A beautiful new studio, and a rich atmosphere bring a variety of people from all walks of life together for 60-90 minutes of mindfulness and heat. Vidal has a warm approach and his genuine love for this practice continues to inspire and motivate, giving students a challenge whether it's the first time or the 200th.
A gifted teacher and mentor, Vidal Bitton inspires his students with his wisdom, energy, passion, and humor. Vidal’s 35-plus years of martial arts training, combined with extensive study of yoga and meditation, enable him to create a warm yet focused environment where students of every level feel accepted, encouraged, supported and challenged.
Vidal holds fifth degree black belts in Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido and Tai Chi. His interest in yoga and meditation date back to 1994, when he used yoga and Tai Chi to heal an injury. Vidal has also studied Kriya yoga (yogic breathing) with John MacAfee.
A man of many passions, Vidal is also an accomplished chef who won the “Best Chef on the Eastside” award in 1996. He enjoys incorporating many types of music into his classes, and his love of music inspired Vidal to produce his own CD: Yochido. The music, like his teaching, flows from his heart. Vidal balances the spiritual and physical benefits of yoga to help his students grow, both in practice and in life.

Shyrah began her yoga journey 12 years ago in Seattle, when her husband (then boyfriend) took her to her first Bikram class. She instantly fell in love with the practice. It was cleansing, purifying, and rewarding. For her, it helped her spiritually, mentally, and physically. Soon after she took her first class she was a regular at the Kirkland Hot Yoga studio. She knew yoga was her calling, and that becoming a teacher would fulfill her need to help others the way it helped her. She was finally able to fulfill her dream to teach when she completed her teaching training program in January of 2012.
I spent most of adult life relaying on weight lifting as the primary form of exercise as I did not like anything else. In 2012 at the age of 51 I stepped into a hot yoga room for the first time. Prior to that I had spent 15 years in meditation, metaphysical studies & energy healing work, never thinking they would combine into one practice. What I saw in that first class changed me. What I’ve experienced since then has also changed me & helped me continue to heal. I am now enjoying sharing the practice with others through teaching.
Rachel started loving yoga in 2007 and pursued teacher training with Les Leventhal. Six years as a Fitness Director in a private retirement community led her to realize the importance of health and wellness. Rachel enjoys different styles of Yoga and brings these practices into her teaching. Her yoga philosophy: To be physically fit without equanimity does not lead to a balanced life. The world is a better place when we feel free and can laugh out loud without the worry of other’s judgements.

I have been practicing massage therapy since graduating in 1998 from Brian Utting School in Seattle. I release deep muscle tension and painful trigger points using an eclectic mix of postural assessment and massage techniques, always working with each person's depth tolerance. My passion is helping people see beyond ideas of “I’m just getting old and going downhill”, and empowering them to take control of their health. Much of what we think of as aging or disease are unhealthy lifestyle and thinking habits which can be changed! Our bodies are capable of radical self-healing, and I'm excited to be working in a field that allows me to be of service.

New Ionized Water filter at Lakeview Yoga and Wellness Center.
Healthy Homes & Lifestyles has purchased an ionized water filter (remember the demonstrations and free drinking water last June?) This system not only filters the chemicals out of the tap water, but it also ionizes the water which alters it into a powerful antioxidant, measured as ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential.) In short, through electrolysis, regular water is turned into a powerful antioxidant and a source of healing. It also increases the PH levels of the water to 9.5 which turns the water into healthy alkaline ionized water. The benefits of alkaline water are similar to eating alkaline foods such as raw fruits and vegetables. We have obtained this ionization system to help and are offering this healing water to our students for one year combined with a Lakeview Yoga & Wellness water bottle for $85.00. Please contact Christine for your new water bottle or if you wish to sign up.
