yoga for runners

After the New York City Marathon on Sunday, Lululemon is shuttling runners back to their hotels—or to the all-day marathon party at the Lincoln Square store (11am–7 pm) for music, refreshments, and—very key—massages. The fitness fashion stores are also hosting free yoga classes for runners tomorrow morning (7:30–8:30am and 9–10am in Manhattan; 10-11am in Park Slope) and Monday (8-9pm all stores).
