Want to meet the newest member of the lululemon strategic sales family? The Studio is located in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory – which is located so far north that in the summertime the sun is out for almost 24 hours a day! Of course that also makes for dark, short days in the winter, too.
Inside The Studio, lululemon’s newest strategic sales partner
Let’s back up a bit. Wondering what strategic sales is? Strategic sales partners are yoga, Pilates, fitness, Bar Method, Dailey Method, spas and other various fitness and health studios that we’ve partnered with. They give our guests access to our products right where they sweat. Many of our strategic sales partners are in regions where lululemon stores and showrooms haven’t yet opened up.
Back to our newest strategic sales partner: meet Ann Asquith, founder of The Studio.
A former bank manager, at age 50 Ann was introduced to Pilates. Immediately she was hooked, and in less than three years she was teaching locally. This past September, Ann made a total career change when she decided to ditch her business suits for stretchy pants, and opened her very own studio: sharing her love for Pilates with the world. This past February, she added lululemon apparel through our strategic sales program out of The Studio, which is staffed by the children of her students. How’s that for building community!?
We are thrilled to be a part of the Whitehorse community through Ann’s studio. If you’re interested in trying Pilates, visit the web page of your local store to find the closest facility (under “local resources”), or let one of our superstar educators tell you about their favourite place to practice.
