Stars like Russell Brand and Demi Moore are going to have to find a new place to get their "Om" on. After unsuccessfully putting a call out for financial support to keep its Hollywood space running, Golden Bridge Yoga has sadly decided to shut its doors at the end of this month. (We're surprised the aforementioned stars didn't drop a generous donation.)
"At this time Golden Bridge Hollywood still has not received an offer to buy or take over our sacred space," the studio explains in its newsletter and on Facebook. "The demanding time and cost required of us to keep our doors open have led us beyond the threshold of our financial abilities. And so, it is with heavy hearts but trusting spirits that we invite you share in celebrating Golden Bridge Hollywood's final month of operation through the end of September. This bittersweet transition will culminate with a final celebratory event on October 1st with Gurmukh and Gurushabd."
Major bummer. Westside yogis have nothing to worry about, though, because Golden Bridge Santa Monica will remain up and running.
