  • West Coast Wine Education
    What's proper etiquette for the queen's sommelier? West Coast Wine Education's John Gerum confronted this question head on when he served Queen Elizabeth II. Apparently he made the right choice, as he went on to pour wine for prime ministers, presidents, provincial premiers, and cultural icons during his 20-year career. Gerum's achievement distills three generations of fine-dining experience that was passed down from his father, a chef, and his grandfather, a maitre d'. Wine education was always his passion, so when starting out, he sought personal instruction from the master sommelier Andrew Lalibert? and demonstrated a palate refined enough to earn him membership and certification from the International Sommelier Guild. Gerum often merges his know-how with other wine educators to cultivate a roster of classes and hone their delivery. These experts join in delineating scotch terroir and describing the bouquet of a student's favourite pinot-stained shirt with an easy professionalism that has enthralled groups of up to 300 people. They share their expertise with casual drinkers and professionals during two-hour workshops, in consultation for store openings and events, and through appearances on Global TV.

  • West Coast Martial Arts
    Open since 2005, West Coast Martial Arts promotes the spread of Mixed Martial Arts through the capable hands and feet of its expert instructors. From 23 locations, they train students of all ages and experience levels in the nuances of an international array of martial arts. Their fundamentals programs introduce tots, youths, and adults to some of the fastest-growing disciplines in North America, arming students with pragmatic self-defence skills that work as well in the heat of the moment as they do in the calm of the dojo. Instructors also lead an array of classes for more advance practitioners. Teaching the grappling and ground-fighting techniques of Brazilian jujitsu, they lead students in battling larger opponents with the holds and submissions of the Gracie street self-defence system. They round out their curriculum with the striking arts of kickboxing and muay thai, which is also called the "science of eight limbs." In this combat style, students unleash flurries of blows using their hands, feet, elbows, and knees, turning into a more fearsome opponent than Bruce Lee before he had his conjoined twin removed.

  • Carlson Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/MMA
    Marcus Vinicius de Macedo Soares became a part of Carlson Gracie, Sr.'s world-famous jiu-jitsu team in 1970, where he was a part of the first class of Carlson Gracie's students unleashed upon the world. He continued to compete and train for years, eventually earning his 8th degree black belt, a journey which also saw him relocate from Rio de Janeiro to Vancouver. Here in Canada, he eventually founded Carlson Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/MMA to pass on the techniques he had learned from his master to new generations of fighters. Today, the team continues to produce champion athletes at the school and abroad. They have a team of six coaches helping to handle the full week's worth of classes taught at the facility. Over the years, they have expanded the education available to students beyond jiu-jitsu, offering muay thai, boxing, wrestling, and other arts that can help enhance one's MMA skills or add to the list of reasons why it's dangerous to high-five you.

    Blurry vision is not just an annoyance; it?s a health risk. Optiks International makes it easier for customers by decreasing the time between an eye exam and getting new glasses.

Every store also offers a two-for-one deal for each pair of prescription glasses sold, allowing customers to give a pair of glasses to a family member or pair their purchase with prescription sunglasses to avoid darkening regular specs with a whiteboard marker when leaving the house.

  • Bikram Yoga Langley
    Inside a room heated to a balmy 105 degrees Fahrenheit, a certified Bikram yoga instructor leads students through eagle, locust, and rabbit poses. These poses, part of a 26-asana sequence designed by yogi Bikram Choudhury, are intended to increase oxygen and blood flow through every inch of the body. Though the physical benefits of a stronger, more flexible body are undeniable, the good done to the mental and spiritual selves can only be described—a greater sense of peace, increased mental clarity, and the ability to tolerate people who talk about their night dreams. Eager to share its passion for the practice, the staff at Bikram Yoga equips new students with everything they need to succeed. Friendly receptionists hand students towels and mats before pointing them in the direction of clean, sleek changing and shower areas. The studio itself is constantly filled with purifying practitioners, as a deep bench of certified instructors teach both morning and evening classes seven days a week.
