The closest subway station to the studio is Chester station, which is a block away. The Danforth has bike lanes and spaces to lock your bike. Parking in the area is slightly limited so add a bit of time if you are driving.
The studio is on the second floor of a building and there are no elevators available. There are two gender neutral bathrooms, they do not have support bars. Seating is available in the space for participants who want to take breaks on chairs.
The space has fluorescent overhead and track lighting, but we will use natural light from the windows and skylight when possible. Music, if used, will be kept at a low volume.
We ask that folks keep this a low scent space and minimize the use of perfumes and scented products before class.
There is a sink available to fill up water bottles or cups.
**Please reach out if you have any access needs, wants, or questions that aren’t met with the above info.**
We are respecting the current guidelines of the space, which include masks, and the windows being open, weather pending. We will inform registered participants if anything changes.
On the land:
Our gathering will be situated upon the traditional territories of the Wendat, Haudenosaunee, Anishinabeg, Chippewa, and the Mississaugas of the Credit River. This territory is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant–an agreement between the Anishinabeg and Haudenosaunee allied nations to peaceably share and care for the lands around the Great Lakes. By living, working, and gathering on these lands we have a responsibility to take from and care for them responsibly. Including ongoing reconciliation work with the traditional and contemporary caretakers of this land.
This is a queer neurodiverse run, queer and trans focused space!
