FAQ's

You've got questions? We've got answers. 

GENERAL

Where is the Studio? I think i'm here?

The studio is located at 1225A 7th Street, Oakland, CA 94607. We're directly to the right of Zentrum Motors on the corner of Union and 7th. Just look for the wooden doors underneath the awning. 

I drove. Where can I park?

There is plenty of free street parking all along 7th Street. Be smart. Don't give thieves a reason to break in. (We are not responsible for Lost or Stolen Property).

Is it possible to take public transportation?

YES! Our studio is conveniently located 2 blocks away from the West Oakland Bart station. That's the last East Bay station before heading into SF. There are also a couple of bus lines that stop in front of our studio if you live in the East Bay. 

I'm Green and prefer to ride my bike. Is there bike parking?

We have bike rack in the studio (holds up to 5 bikes). Bring it in with you before you take class! 

Oh No! I left something at the studio! What do i do?

All lost and found items are taken to the front desk every night. If you left something, speak with the front desk staff and they'll be able to help you out.

I'm hungry. Where can I eat around here?

If you need some caffeine, we suggest Trouble Coffee which is a 6 minute drive away at 1545 Willow St. For heartier meals, we suggest heading towards Downtown Oakland/Chinatown which offers more of a selection of cheap, restaurant quality foods. Here are some of our favorites:

Siam Bay
Burrito Express
Swan's Market
The Forge
Plank

 

CLASSES/CLASS PASSES

When can I start checking into class?

We suggest arriving 10-15 minutes prior to class to allow enough time for our front desk staff to check you in. Perfect if you need to start stretching out before class begins. For workshops and Master Class events where bigger turnout is expected, we suggest arriving 20-30 minutes prior to the event.

OH NO! I'm late! can I still jump in?

YES! We understand that life throws you curve balls every once in a while. We leave the option to join in on a class at your discretion. Unfortunately we cannot offer discounted pricing for missing a portion of a class that has already started.

I loved the class! Do you mind if I film?

Film away! We believe our space is your space! Unless specifically requested by the instructor, you have the green light! Please be courteous to others if they are uncomfortable with you recording them in your video. 

it's my first time here. do i have to pre-register for class? how does this work?

First time? No problem. No need to pre-register to take a class. Simply check in at the front desk with any of our friendly front desk staff and they'll be able to get you started with your purchase of a class pass. 

I bought a class pass. Do I need a card to check in?

When you purchase class passes with us, we keep a record at the front desk. No need to bring anything with you when you come to class. Just make sure that you check in at the front with one of our lovely front desk staff and let them know what classes you'll be taking that day!

Do my class passes expire? 

No. You paid for classes. They're yours to keep.

Can I give my passes to my friend to use? are they transferable?

Yes! You can use your class passes with your friends. The owner of the class passes MUST BE PRESENT in order for us to allow usage from other people. No exceptions!
