Studio Space for Hire:
I would love to see our beautiful studio space used more outside of the times that we have Yoga classes. This can be on either a one off event or on an on going basis. Ideally it would be with complementary activities. If you or someone you know is interested then have a look at the details on the Studio For Hire page in the “Shop” tab above.
