The person sweating next to you in class is probably the "owner" (well, one of them, at least). We have been owned by member students since 1999. That means we operate with no Corporate Ownership. Every cent that we collect is invested back into keeping this wonderful studio alive and thriving. The fascinating authors, academics, artists and otherwise ingenious people who populate The Works are part of something bigger than themselves, and now you are too — every time you walk through the doors. Doesn't that feel good?
Who comes to The Works?
. . . for Works Coop classes: Sophisticated Berkeley/Oakland residents interested in a grown-up version of Pilates Mat, Yoga with a focus on Balance, Iyengar Yoga, Cardio and Strength training with Intervals, and the pure fun of Cardio Dance. Use your Works class card for any class on the schedule with a PINK BOX.
. . . for more Exercise options:
Those who want even more options can check out Shola's Body Sculpt, White Crane Silat's Kung Fu, Carrie's Sharqui, and Shakti's Yoga.

One-day event: Foundations of Flight
Foundations of Flight holiday kick-off!
Sunday, December 8, 12:30–3pm
Inspired by the concepts of contact improvisation and Annie Loui, the Foundations of Flight workshop will bridge the gap between acting and movement. Use energy exchange techniques to work better with your scene partners. Expand your text exploration through movement. Become available in the face of uncertainty. Connect your body to what you're doing on stage. Cultivate stage presence. Fly!
