In this class, we focus on building the foundation necessary for more advanced gymnastic skills and strength work. Foundation should not be confused with easy, but rather as essential requirements for building healthy joints, greater mobility and strength. Each foundation class focuses on a different Gymnastic element, namely, Front Lever, Side Lever, Hollow Back Press, Rope Climb, Straddle Planche, Manna and Single Leg Squat. Each class will rotate weekly with the following elements:
F1 – front lever and side lever; F2 – hollow back press and single leg squat; F3 – straddle planche and manna; F4 – single leg squat and rope climb
The class is dedicated to opening the body with deep stretches. We know that mobility takes months to develop, there is no short cut unfortunately, but we can guide you step by step towards increasing mobility and freedom in your movements. Each class will rotate weekly with these 4 elements:
SS1 – thoracic bridge progressions; SS2 – front split progressions; PH1 – shoulder prehab; PH2 – hip prehab
A fundamental gymnastic skill that builds great strength and total body control. Handstands are also super fun. Many aspects come together, including a strong core, flexible and strong shoulders, strong wrists, balance and control. Classes will utilize body line drills, shoulder and wrist work, partner work and of course, handstands. We prefer beginners to have at least a month of Foundation & Mobility experience before starting Handstand classes.
The class is focused on finding and improving specific joint mobility. Time is allocated to share information on joint limitations and how they affect movements. It’s not a movement-based class – unlike Foundation or Mobility. The goal is to help students incorporate basic joint mobility in their daily routine. This class is only for active members.
The class is designed for members who have a solid practice of the foundation and demonstrate quality of movement. Each class focuses on advanced conditioning, practicing a combination of Gymnastic elements. Press handstand and tumbling will be taught in this class. Members must be invited to attend this class.
This class is specifically designed with complete beginners in mind. Here you will be acquainted with all the beginning progressions of the GymnasticBodies program we use in our Foundation classes, with time given for understanding the basic principles of correct form, alignment and terminology. Basic stretching and mobility drills will also be included and it is expected that after 2-6 months, participants will be able to integrate into our normal Foundation classes.
