Coaching has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.

Elsio Eybrecht was born in St. Maarten, Dutch Caribbean where he started practicing tennis at the age of six under the guidance of his uncle, Michael G. Sprott, a former touring tennis professional. During these transformative years, Elsio spent countless hours on the court learning all facets of the game, from playing and coaching to racquet stringing and court resurfacing. 

By the age of 16, Elsio began teaching tennis at Sprott’s Tennis Health & Fitness Center which was the start of what would turn into a prosperous and rewarding coaching career. In the years that followed, Elsio traveled around the world for various teaching engagements at renowned tennis clubs, resorts, and yacht clubs. During this time, Elsio also competed in the International Tennis Federation (ITF) professional tennis circuit. In February of 2000, Elsio qualified for the PTR Open in Hilton Head, South Carolina. 

It was during these years that Elsio discovered that he was an intuitive empath, capable of clearly sensing his student’s subtle energies and emotions. Quickly recognizing the direct impact that the mind has on his player’s performance, Elsio developed The Tao of Tennis Competitive Edge Method. This new-age coaching methodology combined traditional Eastern philosophies with modern training practices to teach students how to play the ball in motion, rather than playing their opponent. This innovative method of training spawned The Tao of Tennis University and The Tao of Tennis Competitive Edge Academy, effectively giving hundreds of students the tools needed to overcome life’s difficulties, both on and off the court. 

In 2018, Elsio launched his personal brand, through which he provides 1-on-1 coaching, keynote speaking, and wellness retreats. Under this umbrella, Elsio recently created ‘Swimming in the Ocean of Consciousness’, a trademarked podcast, book series, and video course. In addition to training students in tennis, Elsio is a Tao-Yoga Instructor, a Fitness Instructor, and a Holistic Life Coach. Elsio also specializes in energy body activation, through which he helps students activate their higher dimensional energy. 


Elsio studied Tennis Club Management and Junior Tennis Development & Coaching at Van Der Meer Tennis Academy in Hilton Head, South Carolina. He also possesses certifications in Holistic Life Coaching and Primal Body Movement from CHEK Institute. In 2018, Elsio completed the Toni Nadal World Mastery Training Program as a High Performance Tennis Teaching Professional.  In addition to his certifications, Elsio is a USTA High Performance Coach, a PTR Tennis Professional, a PTR Teaching Professional, a NSRSA Certified Stringer, and a NFHS Member. Elsio currently resides in Kirkland, Washington where he is currently focused on developing the first of many PNW Sports & Wellness Development Centers
