Sync Yoga owner Jen Lawson taught a class to 642 yogis on the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge Saturday, as part of the All Out Trinity Festival. The 80-degree sunny day helped increase this year’s turnout by about 500 over last year’s Yoga on the Bridge event.

And then a few hours later, Lawson learned that Sync’s planned new studio at Sylvan Thirty had been destroyed by fire.

“It was a pretty strange transition,” she says.

Sync has outgrown its space on Davis at Bishop and had been expected to move to its much larger space at Sylvan Thirty in May.

“I’m just glad no one was hurt,” Lawson says.

It’s also lucky that the wind was blowing to the south and nothing else caught fire. No other buildings, including the planned Cox Farms Market, were damaged by the fire, which is thought to have started because of a welding accident.

There’s no word yet on how long it will take to rebuild and open the building.

“Luckily, we’ve already got a space, so we’ll just keep on keeping on like we do,” Lawson says.
