Our Parkour Tumbling classes are fun and full of exercise. Classes focus on physical strength, body awareness, spatial awareness, and constant movement. These are developed through swinging, balancing, and jumping on a variety of platforms, equipment, and apparatuses. Through this type of movement students learn to break down complex movements and concepts into more simple steps for progressions.
Our classes also include learning a variety of tumbling, tricks and skills like handstands, cartwheels, back handsprings, flipping and more! There are numerous physical, mental and social benefits of our Parkour Tumbling program. Our goal at Aspire Gymnastics Club is to encourage our students to develop confidence, and become aware of their capabilities, while striving for their potential.
