Vancouver + yoga + Olympic politics = cliché?

Vancouver-based yoga-clothing company lululemon will be offering free yoga during the 2010 Olympics.

The yoga studio where they'll be hosting the classes is called Yyoga.

The CEO of Yyoga is Steveston boy Terry McBride, the founder of Nettwerk Records.

You know, Nettwerk Records... the Vancouver-based record company that once upon a time spawned industrial favourites such as Skinny Puppy.

VANOC's not happy because they claim that lululemon's trying to profit from the Olympics without being "official sponsors" of the Olympics.

You can read the whole story, here.

Lovely, Vancouver. How proud we are of you.
