As an aerialist moving from another state and searching for a new studio, I was worried I wouldn't find one I'd fit into. I found SOUL online and decided to give their level 2 lyra class a go. My last studio was like a family so I was worried I wouldn't find that again but I luckily was proven wrong. From the get go I was greeted with a smile and a short tour. Ryan, the instructor made a point to meet me as soon as she walked in. All the students were so welcoming and kind and I felt instantly part of the group. On top of the vibe, the place is clean and has plenty of equipment. It is a really neat place and I can't wait to go back.
