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.
Named after a storied region which natives valued as a place of restoration, Turtle Island approaches health through integrative alternative therapies, including yoga. Specializing in restorative yoga flows, Turtle Island's instructors centre breath and unlock hidden levels in the video game of the subconscious through dynamic poses done in spine-elongating sequences. One-hour classes held Wednesdays at 6:15 p.m. and Fridays at noon maintain small class sizes, providing ample space to accommodate each participant's metaphysical body.
