Well, the ratio of alcohol related to non-alcohol related businesses on Foster just increased. Not that I’m complaining. We have to be known for something, right?
Somaphile Movement Studio is no longer.
What’s that you say? Ok, many of you (probably men, mostly) don’t know what a somaphile is. Or even a movement studio, for that matter. But if you do and happened to stumble upon Somaphile in the last few years, you’d know what Foster will miss now that the studio is closing.
What it was: woman’s health coaching, movement therapy, wild feminine gathering spot, and gentle chiropractic. In essence, a health-driven, community-oriented studio for empowering women and promoting their well being. What’s more, they hung tough with Gemi Lounge, Da Hui, and Raven Ink Tattoo as their bookends.
Ok, so why are we writing a review for a now-defunct business on Foster and vacant storefront? Mostly to give Somaphile its credit and wish its owner, Danielle Cornelius, the best of luck as her business evolves and takes her on new pursuits.
So what’s next for the space?
Who knows. Hopefully not tires or auto repair.
