another studio closes its doors

thanks to a comment recently posted by an anonymous soul on my post on yoga house toluca lake, i just found out that the studio is now closed, effective the first of this month. wow. i guess i would have seen that coming had i been a regular student there, but since getting to burbank/toluca lake is a bit of a drive for me, i just haven't been able to keep up with all the goings-on at that location (and i thought i was on the yoga house mailing list. did i miss an email somewhere?)

but not to worry; the pasadena location is still alive and well :)

here's the official word from the yoga house website:


We regret to inform you that Yoga House Toluca Lake will be closed as of August 1, 2007.

Classes will continue to be held as scheduled through July 31, 2007. If you have unused and unexpired classes remaining on your series as of August 1, 2007 we invite you to choose from the following three options:

• Finish Your Classes at Yoga House Pasadena
Your class series will be honored at our original Pasadena location with no expiration date. You can take your classes there at any time.
