I just don't see what the big deal is. Yes, they have a lot of classes and yes, the space is really large. But it still matters how you treat people, because, believe it or not, someone may not come back, and so forth.\r
I have been to many yoga studios all over the country. This one by far has the least friendly staff up front. At my favorite place in the northeast, you are always greeted warmly and treated nicely. And I don't expect shiny happy people being fake holding hands, etc, but c'mon, you are a yoga studio, don't make me feel like I am bothering you before I even get class...\r
And speaklng of class, you better put those hands together in your warrior one or else- ""hands together!!!"" ""look up at your hands!"" no matter if you have neck issues, which was not asked at the beginning of class. \r
Remember the soup n*zi on seinfeld? I sorta got that feeling the other day when I was afraid for not straining my already injured neck to look at my hands.\r
But not all the teachers are like that. Some are friendly and helpful. Some treat class like a standup act too and tell interesting, irrelevant stories while you're in child's pose.\r
Just don't buy a package before you check it out. I think that you can find other friendlier, more balanced, zen-like places that don't make you feel more stressed just by being there, and let you keep you hands apart in your warrior if you want.
Pros: some classes/instructors quite good
Cons: atmosphere is a little dank, instructors can be muy bossy, have to pay for a mat
