Our studio

The sudio is located in the 19th century brick building which results in a special atmosphere. It holds up to 20 people. It is equipped with modern ventilation system which gets outside air in, filters it and warms it up due to the heat of the outcoming air. So it is very warm inside with the ideal level of humidity and oxygen.

Our shower is really nice and neat. Take a towel with you if you wish to freshen up after the class.

We have a tradition of drinking tasty tea with cookies and honey and communicating after practice. We love tea (especially Puer) and always keep different kinds of it in stock – green, herbal and oolong. Besides, you can fill you bottles with fresh drinking water from our filter and recharge your devices.
