namaste mom

My mom has taken care of and spoiled me for 25 years now, and I finally found a way to return the favor with the gift of yoga. Nearly two years ago, she and my father began practicing yoga every Saturday morning at the complimentary class held at our La Jolla store. They both fell in love with how yoga made them feel physically and mentally. My mom at the time was going through a few changes in her body and her health, and yoga seemed to center her once again. For her birthday a year ago, I began paying for her own yoga membership so that she could enhance her Saturday morning practice.

It has made all the difference in her life, in our lives for that matter. She is healthier and happier than ever, and spreading the good word of OM to her girlfriends by dragging them to class as well. So for Mother’s Day, I plan on spoiling her the best way I know how, with a complimentary yoga class at lululemon La Jolla and a few of her new favourite lululemon things we picked out together.

a few of my mom’s favourite (new) things

My mom is very stylish and very savvy about what she sweats in and will wear around town. That being said, I thought it best to bring her to the store so she can pick out her favourites, and then I would find a present out of her selections. Here is what she chose:

Get Started Jacket
in heathered coal wee stripe: She loved this jacket because it is made out of luon light, and the back is almost entirely mesh. Perfectly light and warm enough for spring and summer.

Get Started Jacket

Why We Made This:

  • Start your day off right in this body skimming, warm up jacket
  • Made with luon light® which is lighter than our regular luon and has the same great benefits - wicking, 4 way stretch, breathable
  • Mesh back allows for maximum breathability
  • Hidden loonie pocket to secure $ & keys
  • Zipper guard eliminates chin irritation
  • Thumbholes keep your sleeves down and hands warm!

Mynah Jacket in black/passion: She loved this jacket for it's length, structure and "bit of funk" as she put it. It is made of our classic luon, so it will wick her sweat after yoga, and on her morning walks.

Mynah Jacket

Why We Made This:

  • All sport jacket perfect for layering over your gym & yoga gear after class
  • Made with luon®, our signature fabric, is breathable with coverage, a cotton-like feel, and has 4 way stretch to provide support and allow freedom of movement
  • Body skimming, medium length jacket
  • Zipper guard eliminates chin irritation
  • Thumbholes keep your sleeves down and hands warm!

Flashback Jacket in classic sport grey/passion: She loved the lightweight, comfortable feel of this jacket. She loves her Remix Hoodie, and she thought this would be a perfect spring/summer version.

Why We Made This:

  • Wear me to the gym, yoga, or on a bike ride around town. There is nowhere I can't go!
  • Our own blend of cotton french terry has stretch so it won't bag out!
  • Body-skimming fit for easy-wearing
  • Added thumbholes for keeping sleeves in place
  • Flat-seamed for chafe resistance and comfort
  • Preshrunk

Run Pep Tank in Passion: She loves the silky smooth feel of the luxtreme fabric, and loves that she can wear her Ta Ta Tamer underneath without it showing.

Run: Pep Tank

Why We Made This:

  • A shelfless basic workout tank to designed to fit over full support bras
  • Luxtreme™ feels silky smooth on, and is light weight with inherent wicking performance to keep you dry and comfortable
  • Body skimming with open neckline for an easy and comfortable fit
  • Hidden back pocket
  • Flat seamed for chafe resistance & comfort

In the end, my favourite on her was the Get Started Jacket and the Run Pep Tank. She really needed a lightweight jacket for summer, and the tank is simply the icing on the cake. I know she will love both for our yoga class this Sunday.

I am SO proud of you mom. Happy Mother's Day and Namaste.

Hi emilie and Emily!

This is the Savasana Scarf. The last time we saw this was in spring of this year. There might still be some floating around our stores. If you’re not near a store, there might be some in our warehouse. Give us a call at the Guest Education Centre and we’ll see if we can track one down for you! 1.877.263.9300 option #2
