A new Lulu...

Hey y'all!!! I think Jimmy is picking up my Southern accent. I just wanted to say hello and I'm so excited to be a part of the Pasadena Lulu team, and a part of the bigger Lulu team all over the world. This company rocks! Never have I encountered a company who I felt was determined to make me a better person, not just a better employee. Surf's up, see you soon!

I took a class on Thursday morning at Yoga Madre. Rene Quenell taught the class, and it was wonderful. However, the highlight of the class for me, was a description of fall that Rene shared. She said that with the coming of each new season, there is a sense of change and excitement. With fall, it represents the casting off of that which is no longer necessary. It may have held great value at one time, however, it is now time to let go and move forward. She gave the example of fall leaves. They had served their purpose for a time, but their time has run its natural coarse. They are discarded in order to make room for something new and better.

This thought stayed with me for the remainder of the day, and I continue to ponder it's wisdom. What are we hanging onto that has outlived it's usefulness in our lives. Are we hanging onto it out of fear of letting go, or have we simply become comfortable with the way things are? What are we missing, because we refuse to make room in our lives for that which might be infinitely better. I have always loved fall, but this new found awareness has opened my eyes to something far greater than Fall Leaves, crisp air and the smell of pumpkin spice.

I hope as we transisition into this fall, that we can remember that everything has it's season, and there is a time for every purpose under heaven.

Well, Theresia and I attempted our first Ballet class in years last night. I'd say we did pretty good considering. Make no mistake though, Ballet is not for the faint of heart! You think CATZ is tough!

So, we went to the Pasadena Dance Theatre. We met Michael, who works at the front desk. He was very nice, and we introduced ourselves and Lululemon. I told him about our Community board in our store, and that we have their schedule up. He asked if we had any fliers, and of course I didn't bring anything. So, I will make a point of taking some postcards in next time. A good thing to remember if you are trying out a smaller studio of any kind. I found out that they do take credit cards, and I believe a one time class is $15. They have a number of Adult Ballet classes, but as we found out, they are really more intermediate type classes. The bar work was very demanding, and the teacher moves very quickly. No time for explanations of things. You either pick it up fast, or your lost. Thank goodness there were others in the class I could follow! They have different instructors, and I'm sure each one brings something different to the class, but we are planning on trying the beginners class next time. More of a basic ballet class. So, if anyone would like to try Ballet for the first time, or get back into after many years, we would love to have you join us.

If you need Ballet shoes, there is the Red Shoes right across the street from Mission Street Yoga. They are very nice and helpful.

See you at the bar,

Don't Laugh!

Hey guys,
Okay I know that this might sound really ignorant and behind on everything, but just bear with me.
To be honest the last few weeks has been phenomenal with me taking classes, but the sad part is I was really behind for a month or so. Now I am not sure what to do about class reports? Are we just supposed to submit our review here, or do we still need to turn something in to Lessie? If we do need to turn it in to here can you remind me on where we can get the form? hehe
Something must have happened because the process of filling out all of this stuff has completely left my mind! :) Oops!

Don't laugh too hard at my laziness.
