Divine Yoga tunes minds and bodies to more serene frequencies with a variety of yoga classes fit for all ages and abilities and instructed by a bevy of experienced stretching shepherds. Heat-seeking muscle bundles can twist, bend, and cosmic watusi in the purging heat of a hot-yoga class, and room-temperature benders can practice their poses in a mellow yoga class, which uses seated postures and slow movements to flexify hips and shoulders and ease the pain of recent oil-wrestling injuries. Check the schedule for class times and dates.
Armed with safe BB guns, airsoft combatants storm Ultimate Battle Ground's two simulated combat zones, each fully stocked with war-ready bunkers, hideouts, and spacious battlegrounds. Similar to paintball, airsoft is a recreational sport that consists of overpowering opponents with team strategy, shooting, and secret signals using birdsong. At Ultimate Battle Ground's 90-acre outdoor facility, pellet punishers perch atop watchtowers or traverse rolling woodlands and war-ravaged sites including a firebase, medical center, fuel depot, and a downed airplane. The 12,000-square-foot indoor facility, on the other hand, allows adversaries to lay siege to a mock city named Urbanville. POW camp setups and a trench complex add realistic touches to plundered boroughs.

The course at Touisset Country Club covers a verdant patch of repurposed farmland that still bears many of its original, naturally occurring hazards. In 1959, the then-amateur designers, Raymond Brigham and Richard Weller, built the course by hand. In doing so, they chose to leave the existing boulders in place rather than using them as paperweights for to-scale U.S. maps. And today, more than half a century later, the course balances such rugged features with well-maintained, penncross grass greens.
