New to Breeze

 

Attending a yoga studio for the very first time can be incredibly daunting! With so many different classes and levels to choose from it's worth experimenting with different styles to find what suits you. At Breeze, we believe in yoga being accessible to all. Here's all you need to know...

Beginners

If you're completely new to Yoga or Pilates, we hold monthly 4 week beginners courses - which is a great way to learn the fundamentals and build your confidence to join our regular classes. Visit our courses & workshops page to find out dates, details and more!

 

Brand new students can enjoy our very special offer of 20 consecutive days of unlimited classes for just £40! This gives you the opportunity to try many different types of classes and choose what suits you best.

Unsure what style to try?

Visit our class types page to learn what's behind the class names. There are a mix of dynamic practices, restorative classes, meditation and sound healing sessions, pilates (hot and traditional) alongside classes specially for Seniors, Children, Teen and Prenatal Yogis. For children and teen yoga courses, visit our courses and workshops page.

What do I wear?

Please wear comfortable clothing when practising yoga. For classes in the traditional studio, it’s easier to have a top that is not too loose, else it will be riding up in ‘downward dog’. For hot classes, wear something breathable and easily washable. However, do make sure you are covered appropriately, so you don’t make your fellow students uncomfortable. Traditionally, yoga is practiced in bare feet.

What do I bring?

  • A bottle of water is mandatory for hot yoga classes. This will enhance your enjoyment of the class and prevent dehydration.

  • Always bring a towel to take into the Hot Yoga studio. If you forget, we rent towels for £4. You may also consider investing in a towelling grip mat cover, which is hygienic and easy to keep clean. You are likely to sweat, and our Mat Monitors will take care of mats, but if you sweat outside the mat, kindly mop up after yourself.

 

Studio Etiquette

  • Aim to arrive before the start of class, so that you can prepare, get the props and settle before the class starts. We know it is not always possible with the busy work life and London Transport, but it would help keep a calm environment.

  • We cannot allow late comers into our classes, as we consider warm up essential to protect you against injuries. Please check with our Reception before entering. When coming into class, please be mindful of others, enter quietly and settle with the minimum disruption.

  • Be prepared that peak classes will be busy with mats closer together. If you enjoy having more space, please aim for the less busy times. This is unavoidable at most studios, so please show some tolerance for your fellow students, even if things get ‘up close and personal’.

  • Mobile phones should always be kept OUT of the studios. This is your time to relax and take a break from calls and emails.

  • Remove your shoes in the shoe rack area and leave all your possessions in the lockers in the changing rooms. Our studios should be a shoe and bag free zone, free from clutter.

  • Do tell your teacher if you have injuries, you are pregnant or recovering after an operation. This is an important precaution for your safety and so that your teacher can give you appropriate modifications.

  • Yoga is best practised on an empty stomach, so we recommend not to eat for 2-3 hours before the class. However. if you are pregnant you may want to have a little snack before the class.

  • Please don’t leave class in the middle of Savasana (Corpse pose/relaxation). This will ensure respect towards others and also give you some precious time to rest and absorb all the benefits of your practice.

  • When out of the studio, please keep chat to a minimum.

  • There may be other classes going on, but also some students really value time for reflection and stillness after their practice.

  • Lastly, do help us keep Breeze as clean and tidy as possible. We do have Mat Monitors in each Hot class, but it’s a big room and there isn’t a lot of time between classes, so every little helps.

Hot Yoga

  • The hot studio is heated to between 36 to 42 degrees Celsius (depending on the type of class and number of students) so be prepared to sweat - which is good for you!

  • Be hydrated! Have at least 2.5 litres of water in the 24 hours prior to your first class and remember to rehydrate after.

  • If you have any specific medical conditions please consult your doctor first before participating in classes in the hot studio.

  • Please do not wear strong perfume and/or deodorants as some people may be allergic.
