Presided over by expert officials, teams play near the National Mall every spring, summer, and fall, making sure to avoid waking the kraken that lives in the Reflecting Pool.

While softball is an available adult coed league, Metro Sports offers more sports as well. Refereed soccer leagues face off during battles of thrilling breakaways and impassioned goaltending year-round, moving to an indoor turf field every winter. Volleyball seasons likewise divide between indoor and outdoor courts. Each Metro-accessible game takes place at various locations in Northwest DC.

Sometimes it takes more than medication to heal. That?s why acupuncturist Linda Wentz founded Holistic Touch Center and its mission to help hasten the healing process by offering services that extend beyond the body to incorporate the needs of the mind and spirit. There, Silvy Franco and Shawn Marie Miller, the center's holistic estheticians, blend years of skin care experience with training in natural health and energy medicine to produce treatments that restore the body while rebalancing the mind and spirit. They read each client's skin like a map, plotting out appropriate treatment courses that are delivered as part of one of the center's rituals, which include components ranging from traditional facials and detoxifying peels to Vitamin C infusions and cold stone massages. In addition to performing these rituals, Silvy and Shawn also help clients adapt these treatments for use in at-home skin care regimens, keeping epidermises glowing and well-adjusted to changes in seasonal weather.

Those interested in acupuncture may enlist in Kirsten Jacob, a trained herbalist who received her Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Han University of Traditional Medicine in Tucson, Az. In addition to specializing in facial-rejuvenation acupuncture treatments, she also possess a background in pediatric respiratory therapy as well as general family treatment. Her specialities include pediatric and family acupuncture, behavioral/learning issues, and stress reduction and internal medicine. Kirsten incorporates classical Chinese botanical therapy into her work, which includes tui na?or Chinese medical/therapeutic massage?cupping, and moxa. When she is not helping her clients attain inner peace through eastern healing techniques, she tends to her kids while indulging in reading, writing, and traveling.

You may sweat when in the Hot Seat at Pretty Lady Pole Fit, but you'll be doing anything but sitting still. That's because the Hot Seat workout class combines jazz, hip-hop, and ballet dance moves that students perform behind, in front of, and even on top of a chair. This is just one of several adrenaline-boosting classes that add sultry twists to fitness routines. All the while, the instructors work to instill self esteem and confidence in women of all ages and body types.

At the head of the staff is Arminta Crosby, who exemplifies the venue's balance between strength and beauty. She is a certified personal trainer, a pole-dancer, a model, and even a competitive football player. Arminta and her team of specialists lead classes ranging from beginner's pole-dancing to Zumba and hip-hop aerobics, as well as private in-studio or mobile parties that guide guests through styles such as belly-dance, chair dance, or strip tease.

"Our bodies and minds are closely interconnected. Our state of mind is expressed in physical phenomena, and, conversely, physical phenomena reflect our state of mind," says Dahn Yoga founder Ilchi Lee, "Nothing is impossible. Keep working on it until it's possible. There is no failure, just the gradual process of success." To make this challenging, yet hopeful philosophy accessible to all, Lee combined the Eastern concept of chi energy with his own brain-management system, developing a distinctive program that unlocks inner peace and sweeps up brain clutter caused by the daily stress of always having to find Waldo. Warm-up yoga maneuvers awaken muscles before 30?40 minutes of breathing, stretching, core practice, and meditation?including a signature brain-wave vibration technique that aims to calibrate mental and physical energies. Cool-down exercises ease the body back into quotidian functionality before a 10-minute teatime invites socialization among participants while bolstering pinkie endurance. Dahn Yoga is also taught at independently owned and operated franchises called Body & Brain Yoga.

Its red roof shining from the banks of the Potomac River, historic Mount Vernon bears the torch of gentleman planter and inaugural commander in chief George Washington via the home where he lived for 40 years. It takes about three hours to explore the estate, a visit which begins with a walk through the grounds and a short film before proceeding to a guided tour of the mansion. There, time-travelers visit 1799—the year Washington died—as recreated by preserved original furnishings and detailed reproductions. The home's windows look out on 50 acres of plantation, with 12 original structures, gardens, and a forest trail hemmed with holly and laurel. The museum and education center weaves a rich audio-visual tapestry of the general's life, filled with 23 theaters and galleries and 700 original artifacts that include his famous dentures.

Part art gallery, part cocoa bar, Artfully Chocolate was established in 2007 when owner Eric Nelson quit his job as an executive in order to pursue his artistic passions. Needing a little something extra to draw attention to his shop and unwilling to sound a tornado siren after every purchase, Eric called on the services of a friend and chocolatier who helped infuse the colorful gallery with a sweet allure.

Today, Artfully Chocolate delights customers with artful masterpieces parading across the walls, and a culinary expertise revealed in sips and bites of decadent drinks and pastries. Travel and Leisure has also named Artfully Chocolate as one of the nation's best places to get hot chocolate. They also host tasting classes, including a wine- and chocolate-pairing class, chocolate-tasting class, and art classes with chocolate and wine.
