lululemon was founded on the belief that great athletic apparel can help people live longer, healthier lives - and that the bottom line means nothing if we're not working to make the world a better place. From our humble beginnings in 1998 sharing space with a fledgling yoga studio in Vancouver, we've built an international business model that continues to take it's inspiration from yoga: Balance. Harmony. Culture. Community. We believe that every person hired, every garment created, every store opened, every customer educated and every yoga class attended contributes to building a legacy within each community.
