The city’s yogis hold their favourite studios close to their chests in hopes of keeping the wishy-washy workout masses away. Well, the Passport To Prana is letting the downward dog out of the bag. Studios across the city have collaborated on a promotion that lets practitioners audit single classes at 30-plus yoga spaces for $30. Log on to www.passporttoprana.com for a complete list of participating venues, and be on your best yoga behaviour. Studio regulars might look serenely centred but can quickly and limberly snap when your BlackBerry goes off in a silent Moksha class.

Hunt for more clues (and maybe apply before the June 20 deadline) by visiting www.slice.ca/runway.
