I was just looking around the Interweb for some information for a post on Sunday — quick guess on what it might be about? — and I found, if that’s the right word, a lack of a Jois Yoga in Sydney page.
If you recall, there used to be a “locations” link on the Jois Yoga site. That’s gone. There’s just Jois Corporate and Jois Yoga Encinitas.
You’ll also probably remember that the Greenwich Jois shala closed last year, and at the time there were rumors that both Sydney and Encinitas would follow. (A first Jois shala in Florida closed even earlier.) Both, at the time in early September, had full schedules through the end of 2013.
Now the schedule page at Jois Yoga just takes you to Encinitas. It has an intro to Ashtanga course listed as far off as June.
What sleuthing I can do on the Internet pulls up a few things:
- A link from a Yelp review of the Jois shala goes to a “Page not found” at the Jois site.
- Ashtanga Yoga Sydney does not have the same address as the Jois shala — but there may be a connection?
- A Google search does pull up as “Jois Yoga Sydney close” — suggesting others have done that search — but there’s nothing found related to it.
Update: A nice reader (see comments below) forwarded us an email from mid January and, yes, the Jois shala did close at the end of December. Ashtanga Yoga Sydney effectively takes its place, and is being run by Frances Liotta, who managed the Jois studio and taught there for a couple of years.
