MONTREAL, April 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Montreal-based activewear brand Lole is rolling out its signature yellow yoga mats for the 2015 Lole White Tour ™, an unforgettable series of yoga events in cities around the globe. This year, the Tour celebrates its fifth edition with stops in six cities and a spectacular session in New York’s Central Park, expected to attract as many as 10,000 participants this September. Other stops, which will take place from June to November 2015, include iconic venues in Paris, Whistler, Montreal, Toronto, and Los Angeles.
This unmissable series of yoga events invites thousands of yogis and yoginis, from beginners to expert, to dress in white – the color of peace — and experience the unifying spirit of yoga. Each event is guided by famed yoga instructors and accompanied by world-renowned musicians, providing a truly uplifting experience for the body and soul.
Since its very first event at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium in 2011, the Lole White Tour has attracted over 30,000 yoga enthusiasts to gather together in such spectacular venues as the Grand Palais in Paris, the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya in Barcelona, and the MoMA in New York. In 2016, the Tour travels to Asia for the very first time, bringing its uniqueness to Cambodia.
“This international scope reflects our brand’s essence and celebrates the exceptional in all of us,” said Bernard Mariette, President and CEO of Lole. “Next year’s event in Cambodia will transform the Tour into a truly worldwide experience that shares our vision to promote the benefits of yoga, meditation, and inner peace. My deepest wish is to hold these special sessions in places where the flow of the event itself and the beautiful, inspirational qualities of the site are at their most authentic and powerful. Bringing the Lole White Tour to Cambodia is a dream come true for me, and a strong reminder of the boundary-erasing and community-building qualities of yoga.”

– Paris, France – June
