Tip I: When in the large studio, set your mat on the front right side of the room so you can catch a glimpse of the Burj Khalifa throughout the practice!

We tried the afternoon Strala class with Brittany C – an amazing instructor with so much passion for her practice. Originally from NYC, she adds to the urban vibe of the studio – making you think you’re right in the heart of Manhattan!
