I followed our July flickr challenge on www.lululemon.com and was amazed by the quality of the images submitted. Many images exuded grace:
and of course, a sense of fun:
As the collection of inspiring international images grew, my respect for yoga deepened. I found smiles revealed in challenging poses:
serenity swarming city streets:
landscapes enhanced by the yogi or yogini practicing in its beauty:
and the enrollment of others on the yogic path:
147 people from our Facebook community even chose the image below as their favourite from a snapshot of the collection!
I had never tried yoga before coming to lululemon and now I find it hard to go a week without it. Practicing yoga has helped me find peace in the noise that is my life. It has also helped me become a better runner; my breathing is paced allowing me to run longer distances without melting into a panting mess. These photos inspire me to relax my face into a smile when I am in bow pose and encourage me to kick higher...even in my fifth breath. To those who contributed, thank you for sharing your light with our lululemon athletica community!
Our monthly challenge for August on lululemon.com is Spread the Love: leave an inspiring note for others to find.
