Think of the Soma Vida space like a guest house! Please use any supplies that you need in the kitchen or on the tea bars (cups, plates, silverware, etc.) and simply return them when finished. Either wash dirty dishes by hand or place them in the dishwasher. The same goes for furnishings, lamps, or electrical cords in the space that you are renting. Feel free to move them how you see fit and then return them to where you found them at the conclusion of your event. Please be mindful to always wipe down and clean any surfaces or studio props that you use with the provided all-natural cleaning wipes, located in every studio. And if resetting the room, please return any furniture to the original set up. Please respect the space by removing all trash and food and placing it in the trash receptacle, located in northwest corner of parking lot.
Gorgeous space, even better than advertised! Host was easy to work with and very accommodating for helping us find a great place to shoot our on-camera interview.
The space is beautiful and comfortable, lots of nice natural light. We filmed a workshop there and there was no problem with ambient noise from the other people in the building. Laura was really helpful, accommodating, and communicative. Parking was easy. They gave us coffee and water too which was really generous. Recommended!
I booked the gallery for a photo shoot with a client who owns a small business. We didn't want to use a standard studio set up with a monotone backdrop, so having a space with nice furnishings and some visual interest was key. The gallery space was all I expected and more! I was pleasantly surprised by all the additional rooms; it was nice to have a few other spaces to set up shots in. Laura was a joy to work with and could not have been a better host. All in all, fantastic first experience and I will definitely be back.
Amazing host and incredibly cool space of likeminded individuals. Laura was so generous with her time and energy. She left tea and water for my participants, and was happy to answer any questions I had. So happy to have discovered this place and will definitely rebook in the future when I'm passing through.
I booked this space for an one day, off-site planning retreat for our 12 member team. From the moment we walked in, the owner and her staff were amazing. There is a very calming, peaceful, Zen vibe throughout the whole building. There was more than enough space in the room to conduct our retreat and the staff was more than accommodating for our set up and requests. I would definitely recommend this space for other work groups. Very convenient to downtown and we even walked to local restaurant for lunch.
