reasons we love vancouver: #122

As a Canadian, I stand by the world’s perception that Canucks are nice people (maybe even too nice) and I’ll admit that we do tend to over-apologize (sorry guys, it’s true). But as a new kid in town, I’m confident in saying that the nicest people I’ve ever met all call Vancouver home.

wanderlust 2011: a summary

How do you put four days of life-changing yoga and celebration at Wanderlust Festival in Lake Tahoe into words without sounding like you drank a big glass of Kool-Aid? Alana’s solution: lists.

day 1 at wanderlust

Today our on-the-mat correspondent Alana got in touch with her inner pole dancer, cleaned out her personal “junk drawer”, met her mat neighbours, had a yoga breakthrough and laid a pretend egg. And this was just the first day of the Wanderlust festival.

breaking new ground

What is amazing to me is that everyone has their own reason for coming to their mat and that the same series of postures can mean so many different things, and present so many different challenges, to so many different people. While talking with 4 local yogis, I took the opportunity to ask them what initially brought them to their mats and how they continue to push themselves to break new ground.

lululemon is…deanne schweitzer

Sometimes I feel like Deanne has the energy to do more in a day than I do into a week. When she’s not running, doing yoga, spending time with her kids and VPing our brand, we harness her energy to power the office and two-thirds of the downtown core. This video is a must watch, especially if your name is Chris, Travis or Barry.

bmo marathon cheer squad

26 miles of pavement pounding can be a daunting prospect, so when our friends set their minds to completing Vancouver’s recent BMO marathon we were determined to support them. “When someone’s cheering you on and telling you, ‘you can do it,’ it shuts up the little voice inside your head that’s telling you otherwise.” says Matt Corker. As runners approached our cheered squad it was great to see heads come up and smiles come out.

freezing behind the scenes

Winter in Vancouver is alive and well and shows no sign of hibernating soon. We recently hit the beach to shoot April’s Runner’s World ad with Jenn, alumni ambassador, avid runner and yogi. It was freezing but her contagious sunny disposition kept us warm. (That and our down jackets and mittens. Sorry Jenn.) Here’s a sneak peek […]

happy place friday

It’s a gray Friday in Vancouver and the people behind the magic on lululemon.com are feeling a bit maxed. (You know the feeling, right? It’s the end of the week and your fridge is either almost empty or full of condiments.)  Real life gets hectic, my friends. The solution is not to pretend it doesn’t. The […]

blissed out with eoin finn

He’s been one of our ambassadors since the dawn of the Groove Pant. It’s impossible to be in a bad mood around him. If you haven’t experienced Eoin Finn, either in person or on DVD, you have a good thing coming. Read on. Eoin (pronounced “Ian”) Finn is not a yoga instructor – not entirely, at least. […]

off the mat: the wunder-ful

You don’t need to look far to know how much I love our Wunder Under bottoms (31 days straight will do that). They are definitely versatile. They’ve pulled double duty for me from work, to dinners, yoga and play. Ditching the elevator for the stairs why i love my wunder unders a mid-rise pant that […]
