The friendship of yoga teachers Sarah Freeman and Marci Kawar is rooted in innovation. They met while coordinating a kids' summer camp, but soon combined their love of nature and paddleboarding into a new way to practice yoga: atop the water. The duo found paddleboard yoga to be both challenging and serene, like a trivia night hosted by Mr. Rogers. Though the classes at Floating Yogis are open to beginners, they also force more experienced students to rethink the way they pose. As Kawar told Tawny Maya McCray of The San Diego Union-Tribune, "Everything is engaged, everything is super-strong the whole time; you’re not just going through the motions."

With more than 7,800 hours of flight time under his wings, pilot Mick Koutahi of MPK Aerobatics conducts lessons for aspiring aerobats in a conventional-gear Decathlon aircraft. Each one-on-one class commences with about 90 minutes of ground-bound instruction, which covers aerobatic and plane basics as well as safety training, parachute briefing, and high-speed aviator jargon. Once aviator apprentices are comfortable enough to lift off, they take control of the two-seater to practice spins, Dutch rolls, and Swiss jelly rolls—classes vary based on individual abilities. Depending on air-traffic control and weather conditions, the flight may last from 45 minutes to an hour.

In the quiet, northern end of San Diego County lies the lush, green gem of Wild Wonders, Inc., a multipurpose facility that celebrates California's natural beauty and maintains artificial habitats for more than 150 exotic animals. The staff calls their charges "animal ambassadors," conditioning and training each of them to serve in close, educational encounters with wildlife enthusiasts of all ages. Although the facility is closed to the general public, through their Zoo Camp program educators give kids a chance try their hand at zoo keeping, including rare opportunities to help feed, clean, and care for the animal ambassadors during intimate interactions.

The onsite staff obtained the park's residents?many of which were deemed non-releasable native wildlife?from other educational facilities as well as more dangerous reaches, such as lands riddled by the illegal pet trade. Resident wonders include big-eared foxes, armored armadillos, giant centipedes, and talkative african gray parrots.

Golf is not only a tough game, it's a serious time commitment. Instead of leaving the game solely to those with tons of experience and time on their hands, Rancho Carlsbad Golf Course caters to players without an abundant supply of either. Composed of holes ranging from 76 yards to 165 yards, the 18-hole par 3 course permits golfers to enjoy themselves even if they can't hit the golf ball a country mile or count strokes without using a caddie's fingers. The short overall length—2,056 yards in total—makes the course playable in under three hours, perfect for sneaking an evening round in after work . Before making the jump to a full-length course, newbies can also polish their games to a high sheen on the driving range and the putting and chipping greens.
