Co-curricular activity – gymrama


Yiu Yiu started on her gymrama class sometime in mid-February, and is enjoying herself tremendously.  Her class is on every Saturday, 1-3pm, and she always look forward to it.

The class is conducted by a former national rhythmic gymnast, a multiple SEA Games gold medallist, but the newcomers are mostly coached by the assistant coach.  For the few lessons that Yiu Yiu attended so far, she and the other new students were taught the basic rhythmic gymnastic moves like doing splits, balance, turn, etc.

Here’s a glimpse of the class in progress last Saturday.

Warming up 

 How flexible is your body?

Balancing - on the toes and chin up 

That's the coach

She ain't heavy, she's my sister...no, this wasn't part of the routine :-)

This is how you lift your legs, so says the assistant coach

Chanel - indeed, she looks forward to the class every Saturday.

Chris - I guess for their young and nimble bodies, it's alright.

WK - that would be tough! I'm happy if she gets to do this competitively at school/district level in future.

Malathi - can you drop me an email at amomsdiary-blogspot@yahoo.com?

QQ loves dancing too, and I may be sending her to ballet classes soon. But gymrama looks so much more fun :-)

This is run by the school or it's a private centre?

Private centre can send me the details? My little one is interested.. The big one.. not flexible enough.

Irene - glad she's enjoying it.

Boey Joey - hope you have some luck with calling the coach.

ZMM - will email/message you.

Wow, this is great! I would definitely send my girl too if there's such a center nearby our place - she's such a climber and dancer.

We will have to look out for Yiu Yiu in the news next time :D

SuperMom - I think there should be more such centres in China, considering it's a country that produces so many gymnasts.

Anonymous - please email me at amomsdiary-blogspot@yahoo.com
