Lululemon hit the Portland market last spring with a showroom in the Old Port! For yoga and athletic wearers to finally be able to buy right here in a showroom rather than online! What some of us probably didn't know was that Jen Selwood, who is also a hot yoga instructor at Maine Bikram Yoga in Portland and Hart Yoga in Brunswick, would work so hard to create and grow a great fitness community and make it so much fun! Lululemon's Portland spot, on the corner of Milk and Market across from the Regency, offers complimentary classes, often on weekend mornings.  The space is great, with nice wood floor and plenty of windows.  The showroom is comfortable and the "ambassadors" in the showroom are friendly and helpful and can answer all your questions as well as happily converse about where they "got their sweat on" any given day.  They frequent yoga, pilates, and other body sculpting classes and go for morning runs.  Lululemon's gear is not just for yoga though it may best be known that way.  Jackets, shorts and pants are suitable for running and other outdoor activities too.

What I love about Lululemon is the fit.  Every item of clothing fits like a glove. The sizes are quite consistent and the fabric is deluxe.  What I mean by that is, you will not want to take it off! You'll want to wear the jackets everywhere. I remember in the fall when a guy friend of mine got a jacket he said it was his absolute favorite and he needed to get his girlfriend one for Christmas. The yoga pants in the newest line are one of my go to items of clothing now.  I wore them in a non-exercise workshop I attended on Saturday where I sat on the floor, walked in the snowy woods, and generally needed comfort all day long.  

I also have a pair of their mesh shorts that I wear for hot yoga, and even with multiple washings and lots of sweat in a 103 degree studio, they've held up well for months.  I also have a couple of their tops to practice hot yoga in. I happen to be a yoga girl, but if you're a marathon runner, you'll be just as happy with what you find!

And then there's the colors...the showroom is bright with things that look like spring right now as well as the always basic and flattering black.  

Stop by the showroom and say hi, and check out their merchandise. Tell them I sent ya! For a little inspiration ask to see the chalkboard wall. Lulu is about setting goals, making things happen and being the best you can be.

I wrote something on that wall of goals. Maybe you can find it.

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training just announced today!  The world needs you as a Restorative Yoga Teacher. This is where the inner work, the cleansing, the self acceptance, the surrender happens. This practice is so needed as we move forward and reconcile all we are inundated with every day, personally and as a culture. I would love to introduce you to the philosophy, the anatomy, the layers, and the reasons for the stillness of Restorative Yoga. We'll contrast the practice with Yin yoga also so you'll get a feel for Yin and for the similariti…
