I wondered if there would be summer nooner yoga classes this year. I saw a notice at the Robson street downtown Lululemon store saying that it would return soon!
I was so happy to see that! I found the schedule online.
This is what it said:
We’re all entitled to an extended lunch break, right?

We’ll see you at noon, yoga-na love 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 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!
Alli delivered a really terrific and original class today!
Here is a photo of her demonstrator.
Here are some photos of the class. You can see the digital orca in the back of some of the photos.
There was a family doing some yoga.
While we were in the final pose, we had a special treat! Saje Natural Wellness came by and sprayed us with their yoga mist and also left a bottle for us to take home! I love their products! I got to try it at the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon race and I’ve bought their stuff since!
They set out some bottles for people to try and were mobbed!
You should check out their products!
Also there for us was KIND! They have the best energy and protein bars and cereals! They came to our yoga class. I’m really familiar with KIND bars because they are frequent sponsors of the races that I enter. So delicious!
Again, we were lucky to get Whistler water!
This was really great! Thanks very much to Lululemon for offering this special summer nooner classes! I’ll definitely return to take classes from those star yoga instructors!
