What To Expect From A Souk Session

The Reception Service
Our call to the club before our visit was fast and short and didn’t leave us feeling prepared. On arrival, we had much better service with the reception staff letting us know where everything was and what to expect. No reception staff were present as we left.
The Class Experience
Souk received our Recommended rating for the Class Experience.
Our instructor was clearly well-versed in yoga and it looked like she had a passion for teaching. She made an effort to connect with everyone in the session. Some movements were hard to do as a beginner and the class finished very late, which was inconvenient for our evaluator.
The Equipment And Studio
The studio let in natural light and had some nice features, including an altar at the front, harmonium, candles, two gongs and a disco ball on the ceiling.
The Facilities And Public Areas
The public areas were nicely designed and included a good-sized locker room with two showers and two restrooms. The range of amenities offered was limited.
Workout towels were not available and shower towels were available to rent for $3. Lockers were provided with number locks. Free water refill stations were available.
Digital And Technology
The website contained a lot of useful information, but the social media wasn’t as informative. After we booked, we didn’t receive an email detailing policies or when we should arrive.
Souk offers new clients an introductory offer of one week of unlimited classes for $48.
If you’re looking for a longer-term commitment, unlimited monthly memberships are available from $280.
Drop-in sessions are available at $30 per class, as well as smaller commitment packages which range from a four-pack for $112 to a 20-pack for $500
