I went to the fourth class, July 29th, 2015.

Here is a picture of the instructor, Eoin Finn. He has been a previous nooner yoga instructor and also taught a Seawheeze session last year! He’s extremely popular! You should check out their website, blissology!

Here is Eion Finn’s wife, Insiya Rasiwala-Finn, also a previous nooner yoga instructor from 2013! I’ve been lucky enough to have taken classes with her, too! They live and travel all over the world spreading their yoga philosophy! Today, she was talking some photos of the class.

There was some yoga babies again this week!

IMGP4144 Lululemon 2015 Free Nooner Summer Yoga Class Vancouver Olympic Cauldron Eoin Finn 4

Again, we were lucky to get Whistler water! There was also O.N.E Coconut Water offered as well. Apparently, there was Rise Kombucha as well but they did not offer me any.

IMGP4154 Lululemon 2015 Free Nooner Summer Yoga Class Vancouver Olympic Cauldron Eoin Finn 4

This was really great! It’s always such a treat to be taught by Eoin Finn! Thanks very much to Lululemon for offering this special summer nooner classes! I’ll definitely return to take classes from those star yoga instructors!

I went to the second class, July 15th, 2015. Here’s a view approaching the area. You can see the Olympic Flame Cauldron in the background. It was a beautiful sunny day with blue skies. Last week it was hazy from the smoke of the forest fires but this week it was better.

Here is a picture of the instructor, Alli. I’ve not taken a class from her so I was really glad that she was the instructor today!

There was a sign in table. I had signed up with event brite. There was a lot of construction so it was beside the Olympic Flame area by the digital orca.

This was a special nooner yoga class for the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon!

There were hundreds of yogis today and it was my job as a volunteer with several other volunteers to fit them all on the special green turf area adjacent to the convention center.

Here are some views of today’s instructor, Alex who also did a summer nooner class earlier this month! She owns her own yoga studio in North Vancouver!

Here are some photos of the class. You can see the olympic flame cauldron in the back of some of the photos. You can also see the water and mountain view in back.

These runner yogis were amazing-most at an advanced or expert level. You can also see some of the runners wearing the new special edition Seawheeze clothing!

This was really great! I’m sure the runners appreciate getting as much stretching in before the race, too! Thanks very much to Lululemon for offering this special summer nooner class for the Seawheeze Half Marathon runners!

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 today’s class, August 20th, 2014. Last week was cancelled due to rain today’s class went on as scheduled. It’s overcast but not raining.

You can see the Olympic Flame Cauldron in the background. There were hundreds of yogis today, but probably not quite as many as there were two weeks ago.

Last Sunday Yoga Class at the Old Robson Lululemon Store, Construction on the New Burrard Store

Now that the new Lululemon Flagship store is almost finished for the Opening, the old Robson Street Lululemon store is ready to close its doors. They have been having regular Thursday morning and Sunday morning yoga classes for a long time. This was a photo of the last Sunday class.

And one last one outside the store.

Here are photos of the last-minute construction on the new flagship store. I can’t imagine how much overtime they must be paying these construction workers! I wonder if it will all get done for the opening on Tuesday. The grand opening will be on Thursday, just in time to launch the 2014 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon. I can hardly wait to see it!

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 today’s class, August 6th, 2014. Here’s a view approaching the area. You can see the Olympic Flame Cauldron in the background. It was another beautiful sunny day with a few clouds.

There were hundreds of yogis today, probably as many as there were last week.

Here are some views of today’s instructor, Suzanne! This is her second year of nooner yoga! She teaches at One Yoga. You can see the beautiful mountain and oceans behind her.

Today, somebody from Joy TV was filming and interviewing people for a segment about Nooner Yoga. He even managed to do a few poses himself before getting back to filming.
