powerful post-run smoothie recipe

Katie (Key Leader at Vancouver’s West 4th store) is almost as crazy about running as she is about making delicious, healthy food. She’s finally been persuaded to share her favourite smoothie recipe. She recommends it as a powerful way to start the day or an amazing post-run energizer.

barefoot running: well-grounded or head-in-the-clouds?

No, I’m not auditioning for the role of Cinderella. She had the good sense to at least keep one shoe on. And no, I haven’t forgotten my shoes at home. They’re safely nestled in my trusty Effortless Tote. Yes, that’s correct – I have willingly elected to go running with naked feet.

exploration at wanderlust yoga festival

Are you in the first few years of a yoga practice like I am? Do you live your life in a whirlwind of work, friendships, family and everything else in between…and sometimes feel tired and overextended when your head hits the pillow? If this sounds like you, I highly recommend heading with a few close friends to a weekend festival like Wanderlust.

refreshing seasonal salads

Summer, if it’s done right, is alternating bouts of heating up and cooling down; and being so busy having fun that you’ve barely got time to splash water on your face. Summer is also about gorging yourself on the juiciest fruits that nature has to offer. I love the way fruit refreshes me – it’s like a big drink of water and a shot of energy – combine that with a sharp cheese like feta or blue and you have a healthy and hedonistic summer snack.

ride & reach: mountain biking & yoga retreat

Our bodies are feeling a little battered and bruised lately; trying to make the most of summer and inspired by the exploits of the Tour de France riders to go for long runs and bike rides. Our regular yoga practice goes a long way to strengthen our muscles and ease those aches and pains; Ryan Leech, lululemon Elite Ambassador, certified yoga instructor and mountain biker extraordinaire, is taking it to the next level.

top 10 wanderlust must-haves

When our team hit the Wanderlust yoga festival in Bondville, Vermont, last month they had an amazing time (despite the inclement weather). With plenty more summer still to come and lots more Wanderlust, Paula (our Social Media Specialist) put together her list of essentials to get the most out of upcoming yoga festivals.

nutrition tips for marathon training

That’s right, marathon-training season is upon us. While the right shoes, fancy pants, a committed running partner and clinic or training plan are key to a successful run we don’t often hear people ask ‘So, what are you eating?” Being a self-professed ‘Nutrition Nerd’, Jacqueline asked Georgia Morley (lululemon founder Chip Wilson’s chef and holistic nutrition super star) for some expert advice.

what is it about fireworks?

With Independence and Canada Days upon us again, now is the time for lighting short fuses attached to paper tubes of gunpowder and running away as fast as we can to enjoy them from a ‘safe’ distance. The debate over whether fireworks are a valuable tradition or a dangerous nuisance is nearly as old as the countries themselves. Let’s make sure we all stay safe this year.
