Reaction: “Why I’m Proud to Be a Lululemon Ambassador”

Unite Fitness's Jesse Frank

Unite Fitness’s Jesse Frank

Note from editor Emily Leaman: Earlier this month, we ran a piece by Diana Vitarelli, owner of Philly’s Dhyana Yoga studios, explaining why she opted out of the Lululemon Ambassador program. The piece made the rounds, far and wide, online, and I heard from lots of readers, yogis and other studio owners about why they agreed or disagreed with Diana’s position.
