I loved this bag when it was given out during the holidays, maybe a year or two ago. At first, I didn’t know that it was ‘om’ until somebody pointed it out. Duh! Did you get one of these bags during the holidays then?

These smaller bags are seen everywhere here in Vancouver, especially downtown. I see people who use them for lunch bags. You don’t see this older bag as much though. Do you re-use your retail bag from Lululemon?

Here is another close up of the side of the bag, but showing the English version.

Moderation, non-excess.  This yama, or yogic philosophy teaches us to recognize that moment of ‘just enough’ so we don’t move past it into uncomfortable excess. Maybe it’s by pushing away the plate of French fries or using our pent-up energy for a run. By focusing inward, we keep our bodies healthy and energetic. (And hey, there are some things we’re better off avoiding altogether). Where in your life could you practice moderation?

This bag came out early fall and caused some controversy. I was not really aware of it until I read a really angry blog post about it in October. Those complaining seem to be the same people who criticize anything and everything about Lululemon so I take what they say with a grain of salt. I asked at one of the educators at a store about it and she agreed that some people did have a problem with it.

Me, I don’t have a problem with it. Lululemon has had controversial bags before. It’s not the nicest or coolest bag I’ve ever received from them but I’ll still use it. What about you? What do you think about this bag?

This bag was different from other bags in that there is a zipper. I haven’t seen any other small shopping bags that have a zipper.

This was a fun bag to get! I have the large version as well. I still see these bags on the streets of Vancouver. Does anybody still have their super hero bag?
