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.

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 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.

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.
