At Urban Links, golfers up their games with hands-on training sessions with certified instructors and access to an indoor facility with the latest in golf training technology. Golfers can cure their slice-, shank-, or narcolepsy-prone swings inside hitting bays that feature TrackMan swing-analysis software, which uses motion sensors and video playback to break down swinging motions. Urban Links’ resident aces also enlist TrackMan technology to help players find out the club specifications that best fit their swing and body type. Along with lessons and club-fitting sessions, golfers can take advantage of the equipment and develop secret handshakes with cyborg Greg Normans during independent practice sessions in the hitting bays.

Twenty-three years into his storied career, Darren Lee continues to channel the charisma of the King of rock 'n' roll, winning the title of World's Best Elvis in Memphis on the 20th anniversary of the legend's death. Lee gained notoriety performing on the Vegas Strip for 11 years, and during his stint as young Elvis, mastered the moves that once scandalized a nation, from swiveling hips to wearing a white jumpsuit after Labour Day. With dark, voluminous locks and the signature growl that marks such hits as Hound Dog and Hurt, Darren Lee celebrates the King's unforgettable music and charismatic stage presence fronting a multi-media presentation that culls the best back-up instrumentals and vocals. With only 326 seats, the intimate auditorium fosters an energetic connection between the performer and viewer in a way that only the arduous questioning of an Ouija board otherwise can.
Amid bright-orange walls and colourful, pose-inspired artwork, guests at Bikram Yoga Kelowna are sweating. Stretched into the triangle pose with a hand raised toward the sky and their eyes following suit, their muscles gain a helping hand from the studio itself—heated to 105 degrees Fahrenheit. During more than 20 weekly classes, students gather there to detox and improve their strength with Bikram yoga’s 26 muscle-spanning postures. Throughout each routine, the instructors’ focus remains on alignment and posture, ensuring that participants refrain from overexerting themselves or letting their minds wander away from their practice toward daily matters, such as work or counting how many times they blink.
The certified instructors at Bikram Yoga Kelowna draw from personal inspiration as they help students sweat and stretch toward fitness. Teacher Jjanet Barnes follows in the footsteps of her father, who has studied yoga for years and provides ongoing support and encouragement. Shandell Houlden, on the other hand, finds inspiration in the poses themselves. Of the 26 postures, her favourite is the standing head-to-knee pose, which starts off feeling very challenging but eventually produces a sensation akin to flying.
Calling Komatsu a market is a bit of an understatement. The shop is a trifecta of Japanese culture—one part Japanese grocery, one part carry-out restaurant, and one part cultural-education centre. Its chefs create Japanese teriyaki bowls and curry bowls and roll specialty sushi such as the eponymous Komatsu Roll, which consists of spicy tuna, shrimp salad, cucumber, imitation crab, and tobiko. After indulging in some fresh sushi, guests can stock up on specialty Japanese ingredients or enroll in a sushi-making class. The instructors also cover other, nonedible aspects of Japanese life. They teach cultural classes and basic Japanese-language classes.
