Myriad sets of eyes see their tasks more thanks to Dr. Joseph King, who has performed more than 90,000 refractive surgeries in his 15-year career. He and the other LASIK specialists at King LASIK sharpen patients' vision with conventional and custom procedures, as well as PRK surgeries. Dr. King himself underwent LASIK eye surgery in 2000 to accommodate his active lifestyle." Just 15 minutes after the procedure, I could read the computer screen at the office,? he recalls. ?I experienced several hours of watery, sensitive eyes, but after sleeping for a few hours, I awakened and I could read the digital clock on the radio across the room."

It was only a year ago that a trip to the clothing store would bring Zumba Fitness founder Jahnea Phillips within tears. She was forced to choose from frumpy clothes in the plus-size section that did nothing but hide her curves. That all changed when a close friend invited Jahnea to her very first Zumba class. After an hour of shaking, twisting, and jumping, she was almost near tears again, but this time they were tears of happiness. That short while spent dancing reminded her of how good she deserved to feel.
One year and 76 pounds later, Jahnea is sharing that experience with ladies of all shapes and sizes from the stage of the spacious Hazel Dell Grange in Vancouver. This is where she teaches the art of Zumba, which involves cardio exercise through Latin-inspired moves, in which one dances out the entire story of Julius Caesar’s childhood.
Rather than rely on a traditional soak—which they claim dehydrates hands more than it moisturizes them—the nail technicians at Johnson Nail and Spa soften cuticles with heated mitts. After trimming and shaping nails, they relieve tension with warm lotion and cooling gel, massaging achy muscles before brushing on a coat of vibrant polish.
Pedicures, on the other hand, do involve a brief soak in water before a citrus squeeze and relaxing foot massage. Both manicures and pedicures can be upgraded with extras such as a salt-glow exfoliation, hot-stone massage, and foot or hand mask. The experienced techs also lengthen and fortify nails with artificial enhancements such as acrylics and solar acrylics, the latter of which harness the sun’s energy to allow for more efficient clapping.
When M'ai Vox discovered yoga, she found peace, stillness, and a new life purpose. As the owner of Stellar Yoga?a Vinyasa-style studio?she teaches classes with diverse, flowing sequences and emphasizes the enrichment yoga brings individuals. True to Vinyasa style, the instructor cruises through poses at a relatively fast pace. This helps students build internal heat, which enhances flexibility and facilitates solidarity with coal-burning stoves.
M'ai helps students focus on yogic foundations such as proper alignment and breathing. Stellar Yoga's lineup also includes weekly deep stretch and PiYo, Pilates-yoga blend, classes.
