lululemon athletica (NASDAQ: LULU ) , which started out as a Canadian yoga-wear seller and has expanded to fitness gear around the world, has had an impressive run since March 2009.

In the following video, Fool contributor Brian Stoffel discusses why he thinks shares of Lululemon stock are worth looking into, given today's prices.
