Barre Fitness

 

Barre Fitness The celebrity workout craze touches down in Yaletown with Canada’s first barre-based exercise studio (excluding the thousands of, say, dance studios). The method combines ballet, Pilates, strength, and flexibility training, turning lethargic muscles into lean ones. 1038 Mainland St., 604-669-6906. Barrefitness.com

Leone Listen up, sartorial gents: luxe department store Leone has added Alexander McQueen and Galliano to its men’s collections, along with shoes by Lanvin. 757 W. Hastings St., 604-683-1133. Leone.ca

Sabai Thai Spa
This North Vancouver (via Bangkok) spa recently expanded into Coal Harbour, and offers traditional Thai massage and signature facials using tumeric and lemongrass—intoxicatingly aromatic and a total escape. 571 Cardero St., 604-568-6227. Thaispa.ca
