COBBLE HILL — Yoga and active clothing store, Lululemon Athletica, is bringing their pricey attire to Smith Street with a full-service Brooklyn store.

The Cobble Hill location, found at 166 Smith St., is currently under construction and will be "coming soon," according to their website.

The store had a showroom at 472 Bergen St., which closed on May 19, well + good nyc reported.

Showrooms usually run for limited hours, typically three days a week and only carry certain styles, according to a Lululemon "educator" from the "Guest Education Center."

The Smith Street shop will be a full-service store, according to the website and educator.

The store currently has seven Manhattan locations, including ones in SoHo, Upper East Side and the Meatpacking District.

Lululemon specializes in clothing for yoga, running, dancing and other activities with tank tops priced from $40 to $60 and pants ranging between $80 to $120.

Lululemon Athletica did not respond to requests for comment on their new store.

Ossi Raveh, manager of Prana Power Yoga on Smith St., said she finds the yoga attire to be well-fitting and flattering but they can be "a little pricey."

Some people ask, "How can a yoga practitioner spend $100 on a pair of pants?" said Raveh, who is also an ambassador for Lululemon.

The yoga instructor has shopped at the store since 2004 and considers them her "work clothes," she said.
