Sunny Trim knows the tolls that a desk job can take on the body. When working at a travel agency, she found herself battling constant headaches. Eventually, she tried taking yoga classes to ease the pain. Their combination of bends, balances, deep breaths, and relaxation exercises soothed her noggin and kindled her entrepreneurial spirit. After completing more than 200 hours of teacher training, she put her business plan into motion. Instead of asking students to leave their desks and trek to her classes?a hurdle that many busy, would-be yogis find insurmountable?she began bringing yoga to them, in boardrooms, rooftop gardens, and other communal office spaces. In addition to fighting computer-induced eyestrain and the muscle tension that accumulates while sitting at a desk, corporate yoga classes can help employees sharpen their focus, boost their productivity and develop healthful habits for the long run, which helps prevent sick days and curb health-care costs. In addition to sending more than 200 highly trained instructors to workplaces throughout the city, Sunny has launched a studio where students can escape all thoughts of budget proposals and progress reports. Located in Royal Centre Mall, this sanctuary teems with stress-busting classes for yogis of all levels, including beginner-friendly Hatha sessions filled with poses that build strength and flexibility. The studio also hosts Pilates sessions, whose isometric exercises sculpt core muscles and make limbs as sturdy as those of a redwood in a chain-mail suit.

Open since 2005, West Coast Martial Arts promotes the spread of Mixed Martial Arts through the capable hands and feet of its expert instructors. From 23 locations, they train students of all ages and experience levels in the nuances of an international array of martial arts. Their fundamentals programs introduce tots, youths, and adults to some of the fastest-growing disciplines in North America, arming students with pragmatic self-defence skills that work as well in the heat of the moment as they do in the calm of the dojo. Instructors also lead an array of classes for more advance practitioners. Teaching the grappling and ground-fighting techniques of Brazilian jujitsu, they lead students in battling larger opponents with the holds and submissions of the Gracie street self-defence system. They round out their curriculum with the striking arts of kickboxing and muay thai, which is also called the "science of eight limbs." In this combat style, students unleash flurries of blows using their hands, feet, elbows, and knees, turning into a more fearsome opponent than Bruce Lee before he had his conjoined twin removed.

Brazilian jujitsu’s main tenet, “minimum effort for maximum efficiency,” could evoke laziness; however, one look at jujitsu practitioners sparring with each other and executing signature takedowns allays that misconception. The self-defense style stresses ground fighting, which can neutralize an opponent’s size advantage for a more interesting physical match. The self-defense style stresses ground fighting, which is a technique that can help neutralize size or strength advantages, evening the odds in a match, and allowing a modern day David to defeat a Goliath without the use of a sling. But at Gracie Barra, the primary emphasis is a philosophical one. The jujitsu school values perseverance and discipline. It helps prepare students to succeed not only in physical combat but also in life, helping them to gain focus, increase fitness, and perhaps meet new friends. Gracie Barra's four black belt instructors complement their jujitsu instruction with alternate fitness styles, such as kickboxing and mixed martial arts. Each location also boasts expansive views: the Salmon Arm branch is situated riverside, and the Vernon branch’s huge bay doors showcase views of the mountains.

Bikram Yoga Saanich "I love the way Bikram Yoga makes me feel happy, energized, and healthy. I didn’t love the heat at first, but now I need to sweat everyday." —Anastasia Magdalene, Bikram Yoga Saanich Instructor It only took 26 yoga postures and a heated room to rid Anastasia Magdalene of her chronic back pain. That winning combination—the foundation of Bikram Yoga—has changed the lives of many of Bikram Yoga Saanich's instructors. Abbey Lee found a sense of community, while Owl won relief from anxiety, spinal issues, and other problems. Read more about the instructors, who were each trained personally by Bikram yoga founder Bikram Choudhury. Their Studio Bikram Yoga Saanich's studio features rubber flooring made with recycled materials, low-flow shower heads, and no plastic water bottles. The hot studio of Bikram Yoga Saanich makes for a happy planet Earth and a jealous planet Mars. Find out all the ways the studio stays eco-friendly. Tips for First Time Students Classes at Bikram Yoga Saanich accommodate all levels, including first-timers. Here are some tips for new students: Drink lots of water on the day of the class, and continue drinking during the session to stay hydrated. Dress in clothes that accommodate stretching and sweating. Take your next class as soon as possible. Read more tips on Bikram Yoga Saanich's website.

The life of a contractor can already take its toll on a back, but Stacey Reeves was a mountain biker, too. After a biking accident in which he injured his neck, Stacey turned to yoga as a way to exercise while hopefully easing his chronic pain. Suffice it to say he quickly became enamoured with it. Still, Stacey frequently found himself the only man in any of his classes, despite its overwhelmingly positive effects on his physical and mental well-being. So he decided to found his own studio instead, soon registering as a certified instructor and creating a space where men could explore the form in a male-focused environment. Today, YoGuys holds weekly classes at each of the two spacious locations. Owing to his casual discovery of yoga, he takes a casual approach to classes, fostering a relaxed, organic atmosphere as he helps students tone their muscles through flowing movements, or yang, and tighten their joints in static poses, or yin, which together enable yogis to work multiple areas of their body at once without having to arm-wrestle an octopus.
