Since 1929, Green Hills Golf Course has beckoned golfers to traverse 6,485 yards of emerald carpet, dotted with 18 classically constructed holes clustered about the northern half of Green Hill Pond. Players take on the Ted Robinson–designed course from one of five sets of tees, making the course playable for golfers of all stripes. The pond comes into play most directly on the par 5 ninth hole, which tacks close to the water’s edge for the entire length of the fairway and threatens to make golf balls pruny before they reach the back nine. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,485 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 71.4 from the back tees * Course slope of 130 from the back tees * Five sets of tees per hole

From its outpost on on Lake Quinsigamond, Regatta Point Community Sailing has trained recreational sailors to hit the water for more than 50 years. Since it opened in 1960, the member-based club dedicates itself to accessible, safe, and responsible boating programs that maintain a respect for the environment—another reason why the club will never try to cut corners by trading canvas sails for a bunch of gas-powered hair dryers. The staff of instructors imparts sailing fundamentals to experienced seafarers and newcomers as well as children. Three youth tracks are offered for future captains, including a ten-week summer camp, a junior membership program, and the Deckhands after-school program in the fall and spring.

On a recent birthday, Shawn Shaw reflected on her life. There had been lessons learned about love, happiness, and the inherent beauty of life that is present even amid disappointment. For Shawn, a dedicated practice of yoga and meditation was the wellspring for many of the lessons learned. The teenage Shawn kept fit as a distance runner, first picking up yoga as a supplementary form of exercise and stretching. It wasn't until a few years later, amid a storm of personal struggles, that she discovered the healing properties of daily practice. Today she credits yoga with transforming her physical and emotional health and cultivating a peaceful attitude. Moreover, her newfound clarity and mental presence become something Shawn had to share. She opened her own studio, Metrowest Yoga, in 2005. Now with two locations in Westborough and Worcester, the curriculum includes Shawn's own invention, Myoga Hot Hatha, which is grounded in stillness and allows students to hold poses longer than usual as they make peace between breath and body.

Metrowest Yoga's studio focuses on building a strong healthy body and cultivating a calm, peaceful mind. The styles offered are mostly vigorous in a heated room but some gentle restorative classes are offered too. Regularly scheduled classes include Vinyasa or Flow, Hatha and Ashtanga styles. Beginner?s classes or a 6 week Brand New Beginner?s course are also offered.

Perhaps as a tribute to the timeless nature of the sword, the Worcester Fencing Club began as a small class held at the Higgins Armory Museum, a collection of arms and armor from medieval Europe and beyond. There, Doug Jacobs—a United States Fencing Association–certified instructor—began imparting his knowledge to a handful of students, giving them a small taste of the age-old sport that, over the years, had become unfairly associated with bullies popping balloons in the streets. Still, many of his students wished to extend their training, and—upon a suggestion of the mother of some of his students—Doug expanded his academy in 1998, forming the Worcester Fencing Club. Today, the school continues to draw fresh blood, introducing students of all ages and experience levels to modern- and Olympic-style fencing in classes still often taught by Doug himself.
