I remember my very first encounter with lululemon was when I was travelling in New York City before starting my exchange in Canada. I stepped into their store at Union Square, and was just amazed at how it was bustling with life and activity. There were community classes lined up in the store, and there was a live yoga demonstration going on at their window display. I bought my first lululemon top in Canada, after contemplating over it for really long time and decided that I should treat myself a little since I’ve been practicing yoga so often by then.
Once I came back to Singapore, I missed the in-store experience that lululemon athletica offers. Even though local yoga studios carry lululemon apparel in their rack spaces, it is still different from an actual flagship store. In America, the salespeople were really friendly, they know their products really well, they strike up conversations with you about yoga and it really feels like a wonderful yoga community in there.
However, today I got to experience that again right here in Singapore! Even though lululemon has set foot in Singapore for a year now, this is the first time I’ve visited its showroom that’s nestled in the middle of Club Street. It may be a small showroom, but it’s packed full of yoga goodness and a bunch of very lovely ladies who’re always ready to strike up a conversation with you and answer your questions about its yoga and fitness apparel.
All thanks to Soulscape Singapore, I was invited to pick out an outfit from lululemon! Felicia from lululemon was really helpful and I was really impressed with the depth of knowledge she has about lululemon apparel. Had a great time picking out my outfit and also learning more about the technology and detail behind these beautiful apparel.
So, I finally picked out an outfit for Soulscape, and I’m really very excited for 25 October! Early bird tickets are going at $55, with lots of activities such as acro yoga, surf set, sunset yoga, and a yoga rave party at night. Check out the website for a full line-up of events happening on 25 October at Tanjong Beach Club, and I really look forward to seeing you guys there!
