Tantric @ The Oasis

ABOUT TANTRIC: Louisville-based post grunge rock group Tantric have defined themselves through 6 studio albums as a groove laden, guitar rich rock band with dense vocal harmonies and infectious vocal melodies. Frontman Hugo Ferreira’s unique soulful baritone vocals, ranging from angsty rasps to melodious melancholy are a testament for the signature Tantric sound. Along with the usual intricate guitar work and infectious riffs layered over complex textures has become the hallmark of the Tantric sound. Tantric has endured for a career of 20 years, and although band has gone through many label and lineup changes over the years, Ferreira has managed to keep the entity that is Tantric alive and well. “I consider Tantric a boat that I float in—it’s a vessel that carries the music. So, I never feel restrictions. It doesn’t have any rules. Tantric music can be super-heavy, light–or both It’s really an open book with no ending in sight”, says Ferreira.

Band Members: Hugo Ferreira (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Jaron Gulino (bass, backing vocals), Sebastian LaBar (lead guitar, rhythm guitars, backing vocals) and Jon Loree (drums).

Women who don’t exercise can lose anywhere from 3 to 8% of their muscle mass each decade due to inactivity. Studies show that strength training can promote bone development, reduce lower back pain, and reverse several skeletal muscle aging factors.

Kickboxing has become a popular sport because it provides a fantastic workout and challenges many of our senses and capacities.

If you want to feel better about your body, both in how it looks and performs, these sessions are for you!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, class capacity is limited to 15. Masks are required, social distancing is strictly observed, and registration is required. Call (870) 508-2345 today!

American Sign Language Class

6:30 p.m.

Have you been wanting to learn sign language? This nine-week course is an introduction to American Sign Language, the language used by deaf people in the U.S. and most of Canada. Students will develop practical skills and knowledge needed for successful interactions with deaf people.

Students will learn beginning ASL vocabulary and grammar (including the use of space, non-manual signals, and classifiers). Topics include: fingerspelling, introducing yourself, asking questions, feelings, family members, colors, foods, clothing, animals, and a variety of survival phrases for basic conversation.

Since a language cannot be separated from its culture, students will also learn some information on deaf culture, including attention-getting strategies, politically correct terminology, and behavioral norms/values.

The class will be taught by Aaron and Patty Bristol. They were both trained in ASL in San Diego and worked as sign language interpreters and educational aids for deaf students for many years. Patty is hearing impaired and her husband, Aaron, has been her interpreter for their entire 30+ years of marriage. They have taught many classes over the years from very young children to the elderly. This class is taught in a style that is intended to be fun and at times even humorous in order to build memorable connections between signs and their meanings. It is strongly encouraged that you take the class along with a friend or family member so that you can practice with them throughout the week.
