Guess who's back, back again
- Open to all students as of January 31st, 2022. 

We are so excited to see your happy smiling face starting January 31st, 2022. We are able to have 25 students per class and dr. notes are no longer required. Below are key points to remember to have the BEST experience together.

Please review the following:

  1. SANITIZE: Upon arrival at the studio there is a hand sanitizer station at the top of the stairs, please sanitize before entering the lobby.

  2. MASKS: Upon arrival we ask that you have your mask on. Your mask is to remain on at ALL times, including: In the stairwell, lobby, changerooms, bathroom stalls, as soon as you exit the shower, and in the hot room (unless you are on your mat). Wear your mask properly, over your nose and chin. Masks are for sale at the studio, made by daydreamer accessories. We do honour medical exemptions.

  3. SOCIAL DISTANCING: Is still in place. Be mindful in communal areas. In the studio room we have little stickers on the floor (black and pink) place your mat at the top of the red line with the sticker at the middle top.

  4. CHANGE ROOMS/SHOWERS: Are open however, if possible.
    - Come ready for your class.
    In your workout clothes 
    - Water bottle pre-filled at home.
    - Create time for yourself to plan your shower at home.

  5. NO LATE ENTRIES: Please arrive 5-10 minutes before class begins, as doors lock when class starts. This is because sometimes only the teacher will be at the studio and they need to lock the doors when they start the class. It is important to make this a habit as we want you to be able to participate in your class when you have signed up. If you know you will be a few minutes late, call us and we can try to have a system for you to arrrive after class begins. In addition we will put a mat down for you ($2.00 charge) so that the class is not disrupted upon your entry.

      6. RENTALS: Please bring your own mat/towel/Water and Mask, however if you do forget them, we have them for rental or purchase.

        - Observe silence before and after a yoga class, no talking before - during or after the session. In classes where music is playing before class you are welcome to chat to your neighbours
        - If you are a person who sweats a lot please bring extra towels from home to clean up after yourself. Place your towels directly in a bag after cleaning up your space, as to not drip everywhere.
        - Must exit the hot room 5 minutes after each class.
        - Leave your cell phone in a locker or at the front desk. If you are in a class with music and you have asked to bring your phone in for speically arranged purposes we may be able to accomodate this. Please respect everyone's            privacy.
        - There is hand sanitizer as soon as you walk in that you can use after opening the door.

       -  Enter the studio no earlier than 15 minutes before your class. (Sometimes the doors are open, however we kindly ask for you to please wait, if it is raining you may step into the lobby at the bottom of the stairs if the doors are            open)
      - Exit the studio no later than 15 minutes after each class. This is critical for the staff to make sure all cleaning is done before the next class enters the building.

     9. COVID VACCINATION: Not required.


          LIVE class: an instructor is in the classroom teaching in real time. 

          AUDIO class: The session still happens at the studio in the hot room, although there is no instructor teaching live in the hotroom, a staff member will be in the room to monitor the heat, they will not give LIVE corrections. This                                   type of class is intended for those who have taken at least 10 LIVE Bikram Yoga classes. Sometimes the AUDIO class is listed as HOBY, this is our Humans of Bikram Yoga collaboration with Changu C. The                                           instructor will teach live via ZOOM however they will not be able to see you and therefore will not give real time corrections.  

          VIRTUAL class: This class is on ZOOM in real time, to see how to access this check out this VIDEO on YOUTUBE. Unless the class as listed as HOBY (humans of Bikram Yoga) then you will get a link to the session.


  1. CANCELATION/NO SHOW: Strict class cancellation policy of 12 hours in advance applies. Late cancellation fee of $15.00 and a no show fee of $25.00. Your class will be returned to your card if you are a pass holder. If you need to cancel with less than 12 hours notice, please email the studio at or phone us at 519-749-9888. You will not be able to cancel yourself. We of course understand emergencies and covid-19 related illnesses please reach out to us within 2 hours of the class start time to inform us why you were not able to attend the session (preferably before the class begins)
  2. CREDIT CARD ON ACCOUNT: Moving forward we will require a credit card on your account to ensure these fees will be taken care of in the event of cancelations and no shows. In addition having a card on file will help to limit your touch points. 
  3. SIGN IN: You must sign in at the front desk before entering the hot room. Wait in line and give the front desk staff your name. Please remember that not all staff will know your name and considering we have masks on it makes it extra difficult to determine who you are. 
  4. BOOKING FEES: If you do not have a currenlty priced package then a non-refundable $5.00 will be charged to your credit card for booking a LIVE in person class at the studio, a $2.00 charge will be applied for an AUDIO class. 
  5.  WAITLIST: If a class is full, please add yourself to the waitlist, there is no fee to add yourself to it. When a spot becomes available everyone on the waitlist gets an email and whoever signs up for the spot first gets it.
