When It’s Good to Be a Slacker

All of us at KeepWell Foods are honored and extremely excited to be invited to the lululemon athletica store in Newport Beach, Calif. on Saturday, August 7 for Salutation Nation. This is a nationwide event and its free. You can get more information by visiting Salutation Nation. In case you are not familiar with lululemon, they make beautiful, functional clothing for women and men for yoga, running, dancing and many other physical activities.

Here is the scoop from lululemon on the Salutation Nation event:

Salutation Nation is a nationwide outdoor yoga event being held on August 7th at 9 a.m. initiated by lululemon athletica. It’s an hour-long vinyasa class to recognize that we are part of a community (not “we” as in lululemon, but “we” as in humans). It’s about our friends, teachers, neighbors and their friends, teachers and neighbors joining as one to practice yoga together! Ambassador Erika Burkhalter will be leading the practice in the courtyard outside of our store. All levels and athletic abilities are welcome to join! See you there! *Please bring your own yoga mat for the practice! 

KeepWell will be featured in the store and we’ll be handing out free samples and talking to guests about the benefits of our drink. If you are in the area we hope you will stop by and say “hi”. We’d love to meet you. 

I was looking around the lululemon web site and after buying a pair of shorts that I needed (yes, I need them, no matter what my husband says) I came across photos of a type of yoga I had never heard of. It is called slackline or slackasana yoga. Slackline yoga requires a person to balance on a 1-inch piece of webbing (similar to what rock climbers use) lightly tensioned between two solid anchor points, and perform yoga poses on it. The sense of balance is truly amazing – like Cirque du Soleil amazing. I can barely do a downward facing dog, let alone balance myself on a rope and attempt to do a yoga pose.

Hope you have a great weekend. Namaste.
