Oasis Beach & Tennis Club's focus on the sport of tennis is obvious, if only based on the sheer number and variety of courts available. There are 14 total: 10 are outdoor hard courts, two are clay courts, and two are indoor, climate-controlled courts. But when it comes to coaching, especially for junior athletes, the instructional team focuses less on numbers and more on the 4 C's: consistency, commitment, courage, and character. They view these building blocks as essential to success in the sport more so than any numerical metric, such as number of aces you can pull off in a game or the number of times someone has mistaken you for a cool guy named Ace.
But the club has plenty of other amenities, such as a traditional fitness center, pool, and nine beach volleyball courts. Volleyball events are held regularly. Clinics for adults help players take their tennis game to the next level and an on-site tennis pro shop supplies high-quality gear and stringing services. When it's time to relax, take a spot in a cabana surrounding the turquoise resort-style pool open from Memorial Day through Labor Day while kids spend time at the onsite childcare facility, available for free for members from 9 a.m. to noon on weekdays. Additionally, members receive a discount at Urban Air Trampoline park, which shares a location with Oasis.
No one is born into yoga, not even yoga instructors. Having entered into their practice gradually is something many of The Yoga Factory?s instructors have in common, and something they bring to their classes: an empathy that everyone starts at the beginning. They?re serious about welcoming people of all experience levels for each of their 60-, 75-, and 90-minute classes. Weekly basics classes also help get beginners up to speed and address fundamentals, such as alignment and yoga-mat origami. Throughout the year, the center also hosts workshops that blend knowledge about meditation and nutrition within a support group-style structure.
Michael Kendrick has been dancing since before he could get away with wearing a mustache to sneak into PG-13 movies. Just 9 years old when he fell in love with dance, Kendrick was already teaching the art form at age 14. His passion remained with him as he served as an infantry paratrooper in the US Army, where he was cast as Sonny LaTierre in a national production of Grease. After working for Fred Astaire Dance Studios for more than a decade, Kendrick decided to draw on his experience dancing and his certification in aerobics instruction to helm One Rhythm Dance. As the owner, he curates workshops and classes focused on sharing ballroom dancing with anyone inspired to learn.
