Coming Oct. 12.

Wonderful news for those celebrating National Yoga Month: Lululemon Athletica is opening a second Columbus location at Polaris Fashion Place on Friday, Oct. 12. The store will be on the first floor of the shopping center, just left of JCPenney.

Shoppers can expect a similar stash of well-designed women's athletic wear as in Lululemon's Easton location. There will also be complimentary weekly yoga classes held inside the store, taught by local yoga instructors.

"We don't want to just open a store and sell more black stretch pants," said Nina Gardner, a community relations representative from the brand. "We're here to stay. We want sustainable relationships. We want to sweat right next to you and you to sweat right next to your neighbor."

Adding to the local priorities of the international brand: The models, or "ambassadors," in the photographs of people doing yoga inside the Polaris store will all be local athletes.
