It sounds more like a landlord decision. It's pretty unusual a neighborhood would force a tenant to relocate, unless there were noise or related issues, not ladies sweating. Unless they have a new landlord, I'd be a little surprised that they didn't figure it out during initial negotiations. Or maybe they converted. I don't believe in heaven or hell, but I've met that Bikram Yoga lady and she is, well, no angel. Then again, there is no shortage of devils on 39th. St. Nor Columbus Park.

They expanded their OP location and consolidated the 39th St. store with it.

I call bullshit (on the Bikrahm Yoga was forced out of the neighborhood part). I can not only see a person asking that her kids sit out of yoga class, I can see valid arguments why. Maybe she just thinks commercialized white-girl appropriationism is gross. That has all the hallmarks of an urban "hipper than thou" form of the exact same kind of horseshit gossip monger none sense that everyone likes to pretend only happens in the "lily-white" burbs. Fucking boogeyman bullshit.

To say nothing of the fact that yoga is as suburban as taupe stucco paneling.

Taxi is correct. I thought that 'lease was not renewed' implied it was the landlord's decision, since landlords renew/cancel leases.

The 'this happened in your neighborhood' is just colloquial.

They should totally put COLORED ONLY signs on yoga studios and see what happens.

Aladdin recently moved into a portion of the building that was formerly the used record store on 39th/Wyoming. Looks like the remainder of the space is being renovated into Phys.Ed.KC and sign says group exercise, classes, yoga.

Is yoga 'whiter' than sitting around the internet and getting excited about which fast food corp has decided to plunk down a franchise in their giant suburban city? No.
Yeah, KCRag is the forum where everyone examines capitalism and how they practice within

Thomas has been "closed for remodeling" for several weeks, but given that its phone number's out of service and its Facebook page is gone, I'll go out on a limb and say it's not reopening.

KC Star reports that the restaurant is closed for good and the space is being prepped for a new restaurant. In other news, I drove by Blue Koi over the weekend and looks like they've completely gutted the place after the fire and new drywall is going up.

^Good news along with another Thai also going back into old Thai Place spot in Westport. And good news he is going for 'street Thai' served in banana leaves.

Signs up in the building attached to Missie Bs that a latin restaurant is coming soon - Ana Marie's I think the name said. This is the spot that was a day labor office until recently.

Nice to see 'greater' Midtown get new restaurant locations but it seems the increase in Midtown/Westport restaurants are proportionally higher than rate of Midtown population increase. w39th is somewhat a metro draw and Q39 nearby especially brings attention to w39th so might be able to handle increase of more spaces, maybe. Valentine/Uptown area also on a roll.
