ONLINE CLASSES

Are you ready?

OverGravity Gymnastics is launching new Online classes. We really believe that staying at home for many hours, without exercising, is not healthy. The body needs to move, stretch, release endorphins, and the mind also needs some variety and distraction that is positive; away from this difficult moment we are all going through.

This is why we want to bring a bit of the OverGravity energy into your home by offering you online classes. 

What online classes do we offer?

Yoga classes

We have a Vinyasa with inversion class on Sunday at 10am.
A great workout to complement your sports training,
 including a mini workshop section, dedicated to at least one element of inversion.

 

Bringing yoga into your existing training programme is a game changer. This ‘Vinyasa flow’ style class will work on your strength, stability and mobility through flowing yoga poses and breath work. It is less about yoga “oms” and more focussed on the practical benefits of yoga!


We will soon  add a Yin Yoga class during the week. The Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise with asanas (postures) that are held for longer periods of time. 

Flexibility classes

Our flexibility class, on Saturday at 12.30pm, is open to everyone and to every level. You can expect to work on general flexibility involving the whole body and joints,  with particular focus on:

  • back flexibility
  • front splits
  • box splits
Flexibility is an important component of gymnastics and we decided to offer a dedicated hour to flexibilty exercises. A flexible body is less subjected to injuries and a daily gentle stretching routine can really make a difference in your life. So you either want to improve your flexibility for tumbling or just begin with a healthy routine, this is the right class for you.
 
To know what is the focus of the class each week, please keep an eye on our facebook and  instagram.

Gymnastic Strength classes

This gymnastic strength class is the best option to keep you active and strong. If you did gymnastics before, this will be an amazing workout to make sure you don’t lose strength, explosivness and body awareness, for when we will all get back into normal training. If you were thinking to join us or simply to test a different and complete workout, this will be the right option for you.

Sunday class will focus on upper body strength, core, upper and lower back strength, hip mobility, preparation for levers, having a 10 minutes final bit dedicated to handstand workout and progression.

Tuesday class will focuse a bit more on lower body strength with particular attention to leg and core, for stability and power.

You can participate to the class even if you have zero experience in gymnastic conditioning or handstands. All the exercises will be fully accessible to beginners.

How does it work?

The classes will be streamed on zoom
You will just need your phone, tablet or laptop and install the App and then you will be good to go.

1. Book the class through our online booking system or through the app StudioBookings.
2. The time shown on the timetable represents the class sign in limit. We will give you 15 mins to log on, before the class starts (E.g.: class scheduled for 9.45, it will officially begins at 10).
4. Shortly after the class sign in limit, we will send you an email (to the same email address you have used to register to our booking system), containing a link and password to access the class.
5. Turn your audio on, so that you can hear the instructions. (Bottom left of the screen).
4. You are not required to share your video, so it is totally up to you to turn it on or off. However if you do share your video the coach will be able to see your practice and it can make the experience more fun and interactive

What do you need?

The space required for your lesson will be as a big as a yoga/fitness mat.
If you do not have any equipment, is totally fine. The class is structured in a way you will only need the essential.

  • Yoga mat or a blanket / towel
  • Strap or an elastic band / towel
  • Yoga block / book / or a towel
  • Bottle of water 🙂

Additionally, for some specific exercises you will be invited to use any of the following items: sofa, chair, wall

Pricing

The cost for one online class is £6 and each class will be 1hr long. 
You can reduce the cost even further if your household join the class with you (your family, your partner, your pet). Just sharing with one other means the cost is only £3 per person.

If you want give your contribution and support OverGravity Gymnastics you can:

 – use your normal class credit instead, that you might still have in your account.

Every little help counts to support us during this tough time.
