how to wear your cool racerback

You’d be unlikely to find athletic gear, like lululemon, in a fashion magazine but some of the women here insist that the Cool Racerback deserves to be. The tank is a fundamental part of their daily outfits.

rick hansen’s ‘many in motion’

25 years ago, Rick Hansen set himself the goal of touring the world in his wheelchair. Over two years, he wheeled himself across four continents, through 34 countries; wheeling the gruelling equivalent of two marathons a day. His Man In Motion World Tour inspired people around the world and raised awareness of the potential of people with disabilities (it also inspired the Grammy nominated song St. Elmo’s Fire – listen to the lyrics – that’s the core of so many uplifting workout playlists).

meditation in the modern world

The classic meditation image of a sage sitting on top of a mountain, in lotus position, needs a little updating.

Sunscreen use is at an all time high (good) but so are skin cancer rates (bad). ‘Sunscreen causes cancer’ would’ve made a much more sensational title for this post but it’s actually misuse of sunscreen that’s adding to cancer’s success. People have a false sense of protection with sunscreens. Instead we should be getting smaller doses of sun and covering up more.

looking good is a state of mind

When a co-worker asked Alexis to attend the Baron Baptiste Foundation Yoga Workshop in Seattle, she was so flattered. Even as a beginner yogi, she’d heard about the legendary Baptiste in revered tones, but her immediate “YES!” gave way to concerns about her abilities.

pranayama tips and technique

Pranayama, the practice of yogic breathing, may seem mystical and elusive at first, but is accessible with a little background knowledge and can even improve your health and yoga practice. Our ambassador, Ingrid Yang, from our La Jolla store writes about incorporating Pranayama into your yoga practice.

the future sound of yoga

Some may new types of yoga classes as contamination in the yoga pool, others as evolution. We say switching up the routine and trying something new is the way to go. Yoga is like creme brulee: divine and perfect just the way it is but sometimes you just want to try that crazy new dessert, right?
