Not sure how to process this one but I played squash I’d be pretty psyched. Previously we learned:

“This fall EastBanc will break ground on Squash on Fire — a $12 million, state-of-the-art, 20,000-square-foot indoor squash facility as an integral piece of the $200 million West End Library and Fire Station mixed-use residential project. When completed, Squash on Fire will include eight courts and a full-service restaurant situated atop of the newly renovated fire station.”

Thanks to a reader for sending:

“set to open in the new gigantic 601 Mass building in mount Vernon square.”

“SoulCycle Mount Vernon will feature a 62-bike studio, home to the signature SoulCycle workout, and an expansive SoulCycle lifestyle boutique, selling SoulCycle’s original clothing collection. Additional rider amenities include full men’s and women’s locker rooms with three showers each, multiple bathrooms, and locker area.”

Feels like we’ve been talking a ton about yoga lately – well here’s one more.  Shaw Yoga is now open above Lost & Found on 9th Street by the Convention Center.

“Namaste Shaw! We are thrilled to open the doors of our light-filled studio to the Shaw and greater DC Community. Yoga means union: of body and mind, of individuals, of intention and action. Shaw Yoga sits at a crossroads in DC. Walk out of the studio and look left, and you see the houses and smaller businesses of Uptown. Look right, and the bustle of Downtown greets you. Across the street sits the Convention Center. To this urban union point, we bring the uniting opportunity of yoga. Come relax, breathe, stretch, sweat, strengthen, and grow with us.”

A reader tweets us:

“@PoPville Today my #fitness instructor told my class that Stroga will be closing at the end of the month. #adamsmorgan #DC”

Another reader sends via email:

“According to trainers, Stroga will close June 1.”

Stoga’s last facebook update was May 5th:

“It’s booty short time. Booty shorts and bounce music at Sweat Fitness Party this Saturday make sure you sign up and bring your friends. The best workout party in the city is only $15. 1pm at STROGA with Live DJ Calvin DjTryfe Seino and Coach G. Fitness Gerard Burley running the workout”

Stroga (strength and yoga and an occasional party spot) opened up back in 2010.

Update – thanks to readers for passing on the official email:

“Hello Strogis,
It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that after five years of service. Stroga will be closing its doors for the last time May 31, 2015. We want to thank everyone who has worked with us over the years. From our wonderful members to the instructors who kept people coming back. For members who have expiring class packages or memberships that run through June, we have been looking for new places to host you all until your memberships are complete. We will contact you all soon to tell you were everyone can use their passes.”
