In line with our brand standards, it is imperative that we offer a clean, hygienic studio space to our clients. We need our clients to enjoy coming to classes and feel comfortable in the studio space provided. This means always making sure the yoga mats, blocks, straps, and floors are clean and that the studio smells fresh for every class. Many cleaning supplies can be found at most grocery stores, pharmacies, and convenient stores, but again we recommend buying in bulk to save money. We recommend shopping at Target, Costco, Sam’s Club, or at CleanItSupply.com to find the cheapest bulk items of disinfectant sprays, paper towels, toilet paper, toilet bowl cleaner, air fresheners, hand sanitizer, and any other cleaning items you may need.
We recommend always having cleaning materials on hand to both wipe down mats after classes as well as the floors. We recommend buying Lysol 4 in 1 Disinfectant from CleanItSupply which offers a case of 12 bottles for $38.42 ($3.20/bottle compared to $3.38/bottle at Amazon). Note: make sure to air the room out after you clean so that the area does not smell overwhelmingly like cleaning products.
Rags v. Paper Towels:
Although paper towels may be the most convenient form of towel to wipe down the maps and studio, they are not the most cost effective or “greenest” product, which is why we recommend that you buy reusable, washable rags. Again, keep in mind that we are trying to foster a brand of responsibility and healthy living, which includes taking care of the mind, body, and planet. You can find a cheap assortment of both reusable and non-reusable rags here.
As you know, Broga classes can be intense and cause many clients to perspire quite heavily, which is why we also recommend, if possible, providing your clients with towels to wipe themselves during and after the Broga class. You can find a cheap bulk supply of workout towels online at TowelHub. Just like providing apples, this is just a simple amenity, but one that can have an enormous effect over your client’s mindset towards your Broga class.
Light burning of incense, just enough to freshen up the room and give it pleasant smell, has tended to work well in Broga studios. Of course, there is a balance here. We’d never want a guy who is experiencing Broga for the first time to feel like he’s walking into an opium den or shamanic ritual. Incense for subtle pleasant fragrance = good. Incense for smoky, smelly haze = bad.
