Breathe Rules & Etiquette Reminder

The New Year brings new yogis.  Whether you are new or not, please review our rules and studio etiquette below: 
  • Classes are starting to fill up, so we encourage you to register online at  www.breathehotyoga or by using our free App. Keep in mind that you must arrive at least 10 minutes prior to class or your spot will be given away. 
  • Late arrivals will no longer be permitted.  You must arrive at least five minutes prior to class time.    
  • Shoes are to be removed on the carpet by the shoe racks. Many of you own the same Ugg boots, so please use our Ugg Charms. Place one around your boots to ensure you leave with the same ones you arrived with. 
  • Please wait to scan your key fob until a staff member gives you the go-ahead.  If there is a line-up, you must wait in line unless you have registered online in advance. If you have registered in advance, come on up to the front of the line so the girls can check you into class.
  • Voices should be kept to a whisper when in the hallways and bathrooms.
  • To free up sitting space in the change rooms, place your bags on the top shelves or under the benches, not on the benches. 
  • The hot room is a stress-free place of relaxation and meditation. There are no personal items allowed and you will be asked to remove them (other than your mat, towel and water).  
  • No talking is permitted once inside the hot room. This applies before, during and after class. Please respect your fellow yogis.
  • If you're new to yoga, we ask that you place your mat in the middle or back row so you can learn from the more experienced yogis at the front (the front row is closest to the mirrors). 
  • Align the front centre of your mat with the blue "Breathe" floor stickers. This ensures there is room for everyone and that mats are properly spaced within the 3 rows.
  • Mats are personal sacred ground. Never touch, move or walk on another yogi's mat. 
  • Do not place your water bottle or towel in the hot room candle niches.  They should be placed on the floor beside your mat.
  • Do not wipe your mat with the cold cloths.  They are meant for faces, not mats.
  • Heat amplifies smells, so please refrain from wearing heavy perfumes, colognes or smoking before class. If you'd like, you're more than welcome to rinse off in our showers before entering the hot room. 
  • For the safety of all Breathe yogis, we do not allow any glass water bottles on the premises.
