Zuri Girls can rejoice AND relax! Lululemon atheltica has arrived! Founded 18 years ago, they opened a showroom last year and now luckily have opened up its first Swiss shop here in Zurich. Conveniently located at Marktgasse 12, Zürich (Niederdorf), it is easy to find with a short walk from the main station and a bus station only 50 meters away.
It is not only an athletic and yoga wear company, lululemon offers complementary community yoga classes every Saturday morning 9-10am. Perfect way to start your Saturday, relaxed and refreshed. Their upstairs yoga studio is large enough to accommodate 60 people, but don’t let that keep you from registering quick, classes always fill up so sign up on their Facebook page.
They are also starting a new class if yoga just isn’t for you, they have combined high intensity training topped off with some relaxing yoga every Tuesday 18.00 – 19.00. Though this is class is not free, it will only set you back 20 francs and can accommodate up to 20.
Each class at this location provides you with a matt and water so you only need to bring yourself. They even provide the motivation, so if you can get in the door, you have done your part! Additionally, during store hours, this upstairs area can be used by the community in need of quiet space to get some work done or just relax away from the hustle and bustle of it all. Namaste.
What they Offer
The store itself is very large and offers sections for anything you could every need for a yoga or workout session. From headbands to sports bras, and shorts to socks, this place has it all! They even offer a mens selection for the active males in your life (think holiday season…).
Why we love it
Workout gear that not only looks great but works as hard as you do to keep you cool or warm, sweat and stink free! Garments are made with a special silver fabric coating their clothing. The silver reacts with odor causing bacteria and voila! You can workout stink free!
A sales associate will ask you how you like to workout in order to suggest the perfect workout gear. Choose clothing with or without pockets, seams or color/design…You are able to pick and choose to design your own workout closet!
Especially love the high wasted pants, keeps all our parts tucked in nicely. And I kid you not; the label says “No front seam keeps camel toe in check”. Enough said and thank you.
