Dirty Studio, Nasty Owner.
The only positive is the instructor group. The ones I met were genuinely nice people doing their best to provide a good experience. However, in just the few months I was taking classes, I saw three of the good instructors leave.
The negatives are numerous. First, the studio is dirty - the yoga mats stink and the fabrics used for the aerial arts classes reek of body odor. So as the fabric wraps around you, you inhale the stench created by countless other students' crotch and underarm sweat that has soaked into the fabric. And while you can't wear shoes in the studio (a good thing), the owner lets her dog roam around the studio while clients are working out. The dog literally sits on your yoga mat and won't move while you are trying to work out. Second, the class schedule is chaos. Classes are canceled with no notice, leaving students standing outside a locked studio. And the classes that are scheduled have the times haphazardly changed every 6 weeks, regardless of whether this works for the students that want to continue taking classes. These are just a few of the many issues I encountered at the studio. And trying to talk to the owner/manager of the business about any issue results in her having a tantrum! Rather than apologizing, she literally yells at clients for providing feedback and goes on and on about how she just doesn't have time to update the schedule on the website or worry about making every client happy because she is trying to start a dance company (where she pulls the same stunts - people show up for advertised performances only to find out that her company has flaked at the last minute). Basically she is an all-around nasty, rude and terrible businessperson.
