yoga district now open—pictures from open house

yoga district's new bloomingdale studio (in the heart of downtown bloomingdale) held their open house yesterday from 10 to 2. people heading to and from the bloomingdale farmer's market were stopping in to pick up information (class schedules were available) and talk to the owners. they were busy when i stopped by, so i didn't get a chance to talk, but i did take a few pictures.

finally, "the purple building" has a use other than causing all of us to speculate what kind of mardi gras themed business would do well here.

for now, the only furnishing in the studio is this shelf in the front with a few yoga items for sale, but i overheard that more cubbies would be built in further back soon.

here's a few of the interior. that's sanded and polished plywood on the floor (plain and simple) with the original pressed tin ceiling, some HVAC ductwork and a few hanging lamps. a pretty simple place, but it's wonderful to see life on 1st street!
