Haven’t you ever wanted to vent just a little bit about what precisely needs to be different about that tank top to make it perfect, or what needs to be changed on those pants to justify spending big bucks on them? Have you ever had the urge to sit down with a clothing designer and tell them exactly what you wanted from your yoga gear to make your practice all that much more comfortable? Me too.
Last night I was invited to be a part of a small panel of teachers to meet with a representative from the Lululemon Lab, and the managers of Lululemon, Walnut Creek. (Say that 10 times fast!) We met at The Studio, in Danville and chatted about yoga wear. Imagine that, a clothing company that wants to know what we – the yoga practitioners – want to wear and spend our money on, rather than them – the designers – telling us what we want or should want. Love it! I hope I represented y’all well.
First, I must say that The Studio in Danville is simply beautiful. One of my favorite yoginis Julie Conrad teaches there, and is always telling me to check it out. She’s right – it’s an amazing place to practice, and I’m so glad to finally see what all the hype is about. Second, it was great to see old friends, favorite teachers, and meet new yoga peeps in the area. I finally met Greg Riley of The Yoga Fusion tonight, and he is just as delightful as everyone says. Good times.
Thank you, Malia Hill – for hooking me up with fun yoga peeps and Lululemon!
