FAQs

All active class passes will remain valid at all breathe locations through October 16th. After that, on October 17th your class passes will be accepted at the location it was purchased, breathe Pittsford and breathe Online. Please keep in mind that your expiration date will still apply no matter where you practice. 

If you aren't sure where you purchased your class pass, please email us at info@breatheyoga.com.
Yes! Exact transition dates are still TBD but by January 1st, 2023, Pittsford will be the only remaining breathe yoga studio. Please see the “Franchise New Beginnings” section below for more details on what the franchise locations are becoming!

That is true!! Effective immediately ALL Living Yoga members have unlimited access to our live online classes via Zoom and our on-demand audio class library with over 100 classes in it (rotated biweekly). For Living Yoga members who had the Online Membership as well, you will no longer be charged for your Online Membership (also effective immediately).

If you are a Living Yoga member and you’re new to the online platform and need help accessing it, please email us: info@breatheyoga.com. The live online classes can be accessed using the Mindbody app or our class schedule on our website. The audio classes have a separate login requiring registration first. To register for the audio class library, click here. Your registration will take 1-2 days to process and then you’ll be able to access the audio class library by signing in here. (Registration for Living Yoga and Online Members only.)

Yes! The online platform is here to stay! We are planning on adding some more live classes soon – stay tuned!
Yes! We completed the Wellness Studio in Pittsford the day before we closed down for the pandemic.  Our intention is to create a full schedule of Foundation, Yin, Restorative, and Meditation classes in this non-heated studio to complement our heated vinyasa schedule.

We don’t know the pricing details of the franchise/new businesses. The new businesses will release that information as they transition from breathe to their new brand.

We do not plan to change the pricing structure in Pittsford. We offer nearly 90 live classes per week between the upstairs heated studio, the first-floor Wellness Studio, and the live online platform. In addition, all Living Yoga Members now (effective immediately!) have access to our on-demand audio class library with over 100 classes (rotated biweekly). At $119/month for unlimited access to in-person, live online, and on-demand classes we feel this is great value and do not plan to change our pricing.

The goal of breathe has always been to have ‘more people doing more yoga’. It will just look a little different than it did before.

Yes!! Not only is it happening but this training gives you the most possibilities to complete your training. Between in-studio and online learning options you essentially have 400 hours available to you to complete your 200 hour training. Each weekend is repeated: once in-person and once online. Plus, online recordings of the training are provided in the Teacher Training dashboard in case you have to miss for any reason. All of these options make this our most flexible and convenient Teacher Training ever!

Teacher Training begins October 7th! Learn more here

If you would like to enroll or have questions, please email info@breatheyoga.com

For the most part all instructors will remain at the locations where they are currently teaching. There may be a couple of exceptions because it’s possible that some instructors who are employed by more than one owner may choose to consolidate their schedules. In general the teaching staff at all locations will remain the same!
Technically the franchises will not be closing, they will be transitioning from a breathe yoga studio to a new yoga studio of their own! We do not have any firm transition dates yet. We do have some anticipated transition dates listed in the “New Beginnings” section. As soon as we have firm dates, we will definitely let you know.

If you are a Living Yoga member and you know where you would like to continue your practice after this transition, please email us: info@breatheyoga.com. This way we can transfer you to the location where you want to continue your practice so when the new business is set up it will be easy to enroll you there. Living Yoga members will have access to all of the breathe yoga franchises while they are still open. 

If you transfer your membership from breathe yoga to a franchise location/soon-to-be new business, your new membership will be valid at the new business once it has closed as breathe yoga and reopened as a new business. Once all of the breathe yoga franchises have transitioned to their new businesses, Living Yoga memberships will be valid at breathe yoga in Pittsford only. (“Living Yoga” applies to breathe yoga memberships only, your membership at the new business will be called something else.) If you have a question about your membership or want to transfer, please email us: info@breatheyoga.com

Gift cards are affected by the franchise locations transitioning to new businesses. If you purchased or received a gift card from breathe in Pittsford, no action is needed. 

If you have a gift card purchased at a breathe franchise location, we are asking that you please redeem it before the transition while that card is still active. Please keep in mind that each breathe location is a small business and using your gift card as soon as possible is incredibly helpful in this transition! If you don’t know where your gift card was purchased please contact us at info@breatheyoga.com.

Also, effective immediately, breathe yoga gift cards can only be purchased at breathe yoga in Pittsford or online.

After the studios transition, breathe yoga in Pittsford will be the only location selling breathe baked goods, breathe food, and breathe cold-pressed juice. Food and beverage options will be available at the new businesses and are yet to be determined/announced.

The short answer: all parties felt it was time for a change for various reasons. Timing is everything and at this moment it is time for all locations to be free to grow in new and exciting ways.

For a more in-depth answer, please read Cyndi’s letter to the community here or watch her video message here.

Greece
The studio at the Greece location will continue to run as a high end yoga, juice bar, and retail space under the new name, “Barry’s” starting January 1st, 2023. Additionally, added to the space will include one of America’s top rated Irish pubs, “Barry’s Old School Irish,” which will be in addition to their current Webster location.

Webster
breathe Webster will transition to Element Yoga on November 1st, 2022. Element Yoga will continue to offer everyone's favorite elements of breathe and more by remaining a yoga studio, juice bar, and retail store.

Syracuse
From Donna: "Our dream was to bring breathe to the Syracuse community. Our team is so grateful to have been part of the breathe family for these 5 1/2 years. We have learned from the BEST, and look forward to building on what we've learned. Syracuse will remain open with a new name (stay tuned!) and look, and a few other fresh changes that we think you'll love!"
