Mats and towels are available for you to borrow.  Our studio offers a spacious comfy lobby, plenty of cubby space for your belongings, wonderful showers and a generous amount of parking spaces!


Here’s how to find us at IX

Park in one of the small lots on the side of the building across from the art park (not the news complex side). Look for a big sculpture of an upside down man on the roof. Walk all the way down the outdoor corridor under the sculpture. Enter the building through the double glass doors. The studio is the first biz on the left after you enter the building. The door says M3 and Opal’s sign is down a little lower in the window.
