January 27, 2017 - For 35 years, San Diego Oasis operated on Macy’s third floor in the Westfield shopping mall in Mission Valley at 1702 Camino Del Rio North.

However, because the Mission Valley Macy’s is being shuttered as part of a 68-store downsizing, Oasis Learning Center is relocating to a new home in La Mesa’s Grossmont Shopping Center at 5500 Grossmont Center.

The new location will consist of two centers — a Wellness Center and a Lifelong Learning Center.

The Wellness Center hosts exercise, dance and mind-body classes there.
