If you are arriving late to the yoga and meditation classes that take place at  the Athletic Centre dance studio or Goldring Centre fitness studio, please enter the studio quietly and please walk slowly. Also, please consider turning your phone off or turning off your phone ringer and other notifications before beginning a yoga and meditation class.
