Changing room: 5/10

Toilet: Outside, in the industrial building.

Showers: None.

My opinion:

This place is located in an industrial building and is a really small studio with only 1 room. However, they have really good teachers so it’s worth checking out if this location is convenient for you. Most of the classes won’t make you sweat a lot and the hot classes are not even hot, so the lack of shower facilities isn’t worrying. Besides, you will probably head home after this because there’s nothing much to do around the area. Most of the people who come here are not very experienced yogis, so the classes are typically quite entry level. Beginners will definitely fit in well here.

They run promotions from time, so the rate is usually around $10 a class. It’s the no-frills kind of place and you’re really just paying for the good teacher.


Pros: Low price, quality teachers
Cons: mats are not cleaned after every use, low quality mats
Rating: 6/10
