I’ve been going to the free yoga classes offered by Lululemon at their stores for years and I love these summer classes.

I went to the class on August 12, 2015. Last week’s class was cancelled due to the rain but today was beautiful!

Here are some photos before the class when everybody is stretching and getting ready.
