Here To Be

Here to Be is a community-based social impact program that makes the healing benefits of yoga and meditation accessible through best-in-class nonprofit partnerships. At lululemon we believe that everyone has the right to be happy and experience the joy that comes from living into our highest, truest selves. Yoga and meditation are universal tools that allow us to get quiet and tap into that potential that exists within.
