I'm a Gymnast! Preschool Gymnastics Course
The only complete course for kids to learn gymnastics at home!
Does your child want to learn gymnastics, but you can't find an affordable, fun, clean, professional gym close by? Or maybe you have found a gym but your little one wants more?
Introducing the first online preschool gymnastics class that actually teaches your child gymnastics skills in a safe, fun, and progressive way!
I combine my experience coaching preschool gymnastics with my life-long love of kids and movement to bring your child an engaging course that teaches them all of the basic gymnastics skills. The best part is, you don't even have to leave your house! Just turn on the video and relax knowing your child is learning gymnastics, getting exercise, and building their confidence all by themselves!
Joining me for each class is my son, Ever (6) and daughter, Sunny (4), who learn right along with your child, demonstrating skills and make the class a lot more fun!
Why choose Preschool Gymnastics Course over local classes?
You don't have to choose! This course is great for kids that are already in classes and should teach much of the same. The course will give them more chances to practice skills introduced in their class.
Money! The normal cost of this course is about the same as what most gym's monthly tuition is. Gyms also charge a yearly membership upon enrollment. These online classes are shorter, but they are constantly active, instead of sitting to wait for their turn like at a live class. Plus, you get to keep these classes to watch over and over, or use for any siblings.
Quality of instruction! Unfortunately, I've seen in a thousand times - unqualified instructors in charge of young kids. Gyms generally put their least qualified, least paid coaches in the preschool classes. They are often very young and not trained. Or, typical with morning instructors, they are mothers that, great as they may be with kids, have no gymnastics experience. Training for preschool instructors is often non-existent.
I bring to my classes years of experience. After a lifetime of dance and gymnastics, I directed several gyms and attended several trainings. I am a member of USAG, and have USAG certifications in safety and coaching preschool gymnastics. I have worked with both competitive and non-competitive kids of all ages. My training also includes hundreds of hours in yoga, physiology, body mechanics, and natural development. Read more about me here.
Convenience! I have three kids myself, who I homeschool so I get trying to have enough time for myself and for their activities! I created this course for kids to be able to do on their own, with minimal help from you. This is not a course where I teach you how to teach your kids - who has time for that?! Kids can learn gymnastics on their (and your) own time, in the convenience of your own home. What more could a busy mama want?
I'm Rebecca, mindful movement educator and owner of Innate Moves. I spent almost 20 years coaching gymnastics, directing gyms, creating programs, and training other coaches. Working in schools, gyms, and on my own, I've taught thousands of people (babies to adults) gymnastics, dance, choreography, and physical education.
I'm also professionally trained in kinesiology, yoga, stretching, and gross motor development. I think gymnastics is a foundation for all movement and sports and am happy to give more children the opportunity to learn skills in a natural way!
"This gymnastics course is so much fun! My son, who’s four years old, has been through the roof with all the new moves he’s learning. He completely loves doing somersaults or straddle jumps. He just wants to show off to everyone he meets.
Rebecca Carr is a fantastic teacher and has split the lessons up beautifully for preschool age kids. We keep watching the videos over and over and have fun every time!"
