Though Boh’s Cycle & Sporting Goods’ staff stocks racks with gear by The North Face, Thule, and Ripzone, their commitment to outdoor adventure extends beyond the shop’s walls. Certified paddling instructors lead introductory canoe and kayaking lessons down Moose Jaw river, imparting water-slicing basics and teaching the correct hand signals for pizza delivery by the local birdlife. Simple kayak and canoe rentals are also available for up to a full day’s worth of tranquil water traversal for the more confident. When embarking on land voyages, customers can peruse the shop’s selection of bikes and parts, or get adjustments from the shop’s mechanics, who can repair and fine-tune road-weary bikes or sharpen skates and repair skis in the winter. Besides bringing together lovers of the outdoors inside the shop, Boh’s crew also runs a running club that converges Tuesdays and Sundays before setting off for hill climbs and speed drills or distance runs.
At Turtle Island, yoga instructors lead pupils through a series of alignments and movements to help them restore their physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. The yogis specialize in Kundalini yoga, a style that aims to expand sensory awareness, fine tune intuition, and raise an individual's consciousness until it can control the Jumbotron at sporting events. Students can enroll in small 60-minute classes scheduled Tuesdays from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., though Turtle Island's yoga profs may add more class times based on demand.
