Lion’s Breath is a yoga pose! Ask your teacher to show you!
What is “Lion’s Breath”?
It’s my first time trying yoga. What is the best type?
This is hard to answer. Ask yourself these questions: what do I want from my yoga practice? Is vigorous and challenging experience or gentle and low-key more my style? Start where you’re comfortable. Then branch out and explore the variety of yoga styles available at Lion’s Breath if you’re so inclined.
What should I bring to class?
Bring a mat (or rent one at the studio for $2). Wear comfy clothing that allows for maximum mobility. Spandex often works best, or anything you use for running or other sports. If you’re wearing a loose shirt, it’s a good idea to tuck it in. Bring a bottle of water. A friend. A hand towel if you sweat a lot. Also, feel free to bring your own props but we have these at the studio for your use.
Is flexibility required?
No. Flexibility, or rather lack of it, is the number one reason people are afraid to try yoga. But it’s why they need it the most. It won’t take long before you notice improvements! (Hello, toes!)
Do you have any special deals for first time yogis?
We have a 1 month unlimited for $49 (plus tax) for new students, It’s an amazing deal!
Is yoga good for guys?
Yes! Many men have played sports since their youth, and they are strong – but also a little tight. As hockey players, figure skaters and golfers can attest to, yoga is the perfect basis for a strong cross-training program that includes stretching, strengthening, improved range of motion and assists in speedy recovery from injury.
Is yoga good for any age? (for example, my 10-year-old daughter or my 80 year old mum).
Not all types of yoga are for all ages, but we have yoga that suits all ages. Peruse class descriptions to see which style of yoga best matches your current fitness levels and motivations for doing yoga.
Can I bring my child to a class?
We do not recommend children under the age of 13 to any adult class as they simply require instruction more suited to their age. However…as todays 13 year old is more like our 15…we do allow 13 and olders to be in adult classes with a parent. Please call for more details.
What is your policy regarding etiquette?
- We have a ‘do not worry too much about being late’ policy. It is stressful to worry and try to make commitments to punctuality. This is counter-productive to the goals of yoga. Please however, when entering late, be mindful that others are settled in. Be like a mouse…
- Please keep your voice low as you sit in the main waiting areas. Friends are in Savasana.
- Strong perfumes can irritate other participants… a little less is appreciated.
How frequently does the class schedule change?
The schedule mainly changes for summer and Christmas as well as Statutory Holidays. Some weekend classes may be cancelled for special events such as workshops.
How much do drop in classes cost compared to your passes?
Expect to pay more for a drop in than one of our passes as you are enjoying the flexibility that others have committed to.
Do your 5/10/20 passes expire?
These passes have a one year expiry date unless otherwise stated. Please read the fine print on promotions and deals.
Does Lion’s Breath offer private yoga lessons? What is the cost of these sessions?

Does Lion’s Breath offer yoga training programs?
