Free Yoga and Pilates inside Lululemon Lab at Broadway and Cambie

The Lab: A unique space which juxtaposes busy city life with inward reflection.

An hour-long candlelit yoga session takes place each week at 511 West Broadway. The sessions incorporate relaxing music, an experienced instructor and even complimentary juices (and coffee on Sunday mornings).

Yesterday the guest instructor was the inspiring Reno Muenz who uses Caribbean music to aid his flowing instructions for Vinyasa Yoga ( On a regular Tuesday you will encounter the compassion of Christie Baumgartner from 6:30pm-7:30pm for Yin Yoga.

On Sunday mornings at 9:30am Pilates is directed by Nikki Neves.

These complimentary classes are meant to involve the store with the community as well as substantiate Lululemon's manifesto.

You won't be pressured to buy. In fact the Lab even carries a few mats for borrowing if you don't have your own.

Still, the classes are a great chance to check out the space as well as the products.

These regular classes will not be conducted during the Olympics, but on February 25th an event called Chill the 'Eff' out (Candlelit Yin Yoga) will run from 9:30pm-10:30pm. I'll be there!
