Lolë Presents White Yoga in Montreal: The 2014 Edition of the White Tour
In the spirit of the first worldwide White Yoga event held in Paris in October 2011, Montreal activewear brand Lolë proposed a repeat west of the Atlantic Ocean with its first White Yoga Montreal edition in July 2012, a unique opportunity where people of all walks of life joined in a massive outdoor yoga event, free of charge, led by Montreal yoga guru Lyne St-Roch. Yoga mats were even provided on site, at the Olympic Park esplanade located just beside the Olympic Stadium.

The 2014 edition proposes a slightly different format. Held in the spring as well as the summer, attendees will have a chance to join in a large-scale yoga session in a leading Montreal museum and at the Old Port. And dress in white. Why white? As a symbol of peace and to emphasize the intent of the event, as per previous editions. According to St-Roch, “yoga is unity and unity is often represented by the color white. United in this way, we exude good will through the postures, breathing and inner listening.” Admission is $25 and includes a Lolë yoga mat attendees can keep.
