As you pass through the black gate there is a small hut on the right-hand side with a map (refer to pictures). Proceed to Building C. Through the main doors onto the cobblestone floor walk towards the end of the room and on the left, there is a doorway leading to a set of stairs. Proceed upstairs to the first floor and there you will find Academia Nova Era yoga studio.
