Venk Prabhu, founder of Shanti Tea, envisions tea as a ritual, as a space that should be honoured. He respects this belief by travelling the world to source his fair-trade, sustainable, and certified-organic teas, curating and collecting distinct blends after steeping himself in the culture, traditions, and stories of the places they?re grown. In addition to a wide roster of green, black, white, and red-all-over teas, herbs and spices add extra aroma to blends and range from the familiar lavender or clove to the more esoteric and medicinal eyebright, yarrow, and st. john?s wort. Certified organic matcha from Japan?s Aichi Prefecture facilitates formal and casual tea ceremonies in three different grades, from straight matcha to blends with blueberry or cocoa. Cofounder and naturopathic doctor Priya Prakash blends wellness teas, as well as Ayurvedic teas that fit within Ayurvedic medicinal tradition. Shanti Tea also educates its customers with regular workshops that include tastings and blending lessons.

In 2006, it dawned on Terry Moshenberg and Topher Stott that there was a lack of creative outlets for musical adults. Those hoping to hone their skills or simply jam out often had a hard time finding likeminded people. A year later, Terry and Topher sought out to solve this problem by starting League of Rock, which has since revealed what they refer to as the "hidden musical population." During workshops and team-building exercises held at corporations and various venues, professional musicians invite grownups to unleash their inner rock star by helping them master their chosen instrument, assigning them band mates, and getting them up on stage with a professional rock band. In corporate music leagues, clients use LOR as a resource to put on shows for recruiting purposes and raising money for charity.

Ottawa Safety Council has enlightened citizens about safety through interactive and informative programs for more than half a century. Starting with a defensive driving course, the council's curriculum blossomed to focus on children's bus safety and then beyond, always keeping in mind the needs and desires of the community. Now, during children's safety programs, kids learn skills such as how to call 911, how to say "No," and how to sound like Clint Eastwood when answering the phone at home alone. Motorcycle rider training equips bikers with defensive tactics when careening along the open road, and the school crossing guards program trains participants on guiding children safely across the street.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit that positions machines inward so that you'll have a chance to laugh with your fellow fitness frontierswomen while raising your heart rate and burning calories with a complete aerobic and strength-training workout. Hydraulic resistance machines are designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine manoeuvring and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
