This is a dance/yoga studio, so the floors must be clean for bare feet which often involves mopping, especially when serving food and drinks. I recommend booking 1 hr of cleaning at the end of your event as it is a large space.** THE LOCATION: =========================================== - Located in West SoMA, near Howard and 10th. - Parking: Mon-Sat metered from 9am-6pm; Sun/after 6pm FREE and very easy to find spots - 5 min walk to Van Ness MUNI, 8 min walk to Civic Center BART - Huge variety of coffee shops, restaurants, and bars all within 15 min walk The largest room is about 1700 sq ft. and has beautiful southern exposure windows that let in the morning and afternoon light. Hardwood floors are perfect for yoga, dance, contact improv, and other movement arts. Floor length mirrors cover two of the largest walls in this area. This space is also ideal for workshops and larger events, it can comfortably hold 40 people for yoga, 70 for seated workshops or standing events. I have 40 folding chairs available, as well as foam floor mats and various floor pillows for additional seating. We have 18 yoga mats available for use as well. This room also has a small speaker system to plug in your phone or computer. There is a small desk to use for greeting guests/event sign-ins, but this can be put in storage for your event to leave the space completely open. There is no other furniture in this part of the studio. The smaller rooms are the ZenSpace and the Aquarium. The ZenSpace is approx. 250 sq. ft, and has Hue Lights, a projector and 5.1 sound system (the projector is better suited for video/photos, it is not a high enough resolution for reading lots of text). It is filled with foam pads and pillows making it a great place for a movie night, or to come in and meditate or relax. The “Aquarium" is a smaller 150 sq. ft room with sliding glass doors. The doors slide open to produce a very wide open space, making this perfect for photo shoots. The inside is decorated with hanging christmas lights and umbrellas to make it look like a rainstorm inside, it makes a great backdrop for fun photos! The glass doors do not provide much sound isolation which is why I have staged it as a photo booth/art room. The decorations can be tucked up into the beams if you’d like to use this as an additional smaller breakout room for your event. There is 1 private bathroom (no shower), and a large fridge that can be used to store food and drinks. The ceiling has beams with hard points installed for low-height aerial equipment, aerial yoga, TRX, etc. There is heat but no A/C, usually the temp inside is comfortable as-is.
No smoking. Outside food, alcohol, and pets are allowed, but please make note of these things in your booking so I can arrange for additional cleaning after your rental.
Booking was easy and Tani was quick to respond. Upon arrival, Tani was there to welcome me and provide basic details on the space such as bathrooms, windows and doorbell. Her space was more than what we needed and she also had additional items to provide that we did not need at this time. Will definitely keep this space in mind for future bookings!
