At Totem, we pride ourselves on delivering fun, engaging and exciting gymnastics sessions. We aim to give all our members a great opportunity to participate in a safe, encouraging and positive environment.
Accredited to British Gymnastics the sport’s governing body, we are dedicated to providing structured gymnastic sessions for children aged 2.5years +. We also offer play sessions for babies up to 4years. Our gymnasts have fun whilst learning the basics they need to progress. We encourage the gymnasts to work at their own pace and work through the British Gymnastics award scheme three times a year.
At Totem, we believe gymnastics is a great foundation for all sports and helps promote an active and healthy lifestyl. Participating in gymnastics is a great way to help a child grow and develop their self esteem and build their confidence. As well as improving physical fitness, Helena our head coach is a firm believer participating in physical exercise can improve mental health , create a positive mind and improve cognitive function.
We also offer aerial silks and hoop classes to children, alongside our gymnastics classes. The children will learn from aerialists with over 6 years teaching and performance e experience. The saying ‘I’ll run away and join the circus’ could be a reality for some of our young aerialists one day.
As you might imagine in the classes we work on balance, agility, co-ordination, flexibility and strength. As you would expect all our sessions are lead by our British Gymnastics head coach Helena, who has over 10 years coaching experience. All members of staff are DBS check and first aider is always present in each session.
