Yoga-inspired athletic clothing purveyor Lululemon Athletica is really stretching out (har). The company, just a twinkle in a yogi's eye a few years ago, now has a store in Lincoln Square and plans for Union Square and East 66th Street locations. And now, a source whispers to Racked that they'll soon be taking space in Soho to sell more mats, sporty tops and shorts. Their intended target: a small storefront at 481 Broadway right next door to Pearl River Market. Judging from the number of yoga studios in the area (and the lack of yoga shops), it's a smart choice for them.
