Kitsilano is a big part of what makes Vancouver such a great city – from beaches and restaurants to fashion and yoga. At the core of the community is West 4th avenue, linking the East and West sides of the city and providing a walkable shopping district.


“Kits is a very, very healthy part of Vancouver. People can enjoy a Yoga or Pilates class, buy their organic groceries and multi-vitamins and even learn more about health and wellness without leaving West 4th. Kitsilano residents have a unique lifestyle and a unique way of staying healthy and our merchants are making it easier for people of all ages to meet their goals for 2013.” – Russ Davies, Executive Director of the Kitsilano 4th Avenue Business Improvement Association

Refresh your mind and spirit at Semperviva and YYoga, pick up natural ingredients for dinner at Whole Foods, supplement your diet with vitamins from Pharmasave, YVS, and Reflex, and take a moment enjoy a few sips at The 05 Tea Bar. The Kitsilano 4th Avenue Business Improvement Association wants to get the word out about how the shops, studios, and services along its popular thoroughfare can encourage and promote healthy living so they have put together an impressive prize pack (valued at $385) for me to give away. This includes:

Here’s how you can win this health-conscious prize pack from the Kitsilano 4th Avenue Business Improvement Association:
