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. Check our program here.
What online classes do we offer?
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 also have our ‘Yang to Yin’ yoga class is our mid week restorative session where we will guide you through gentle sun salutation flows to warm the body, transitioning into a sequence of restorative poses, which are held for several minutes each to deepen the stretch on the connective tissues, and calm the mind. Passive stretching is known to allow the body to relax and reach deeper into postures. Note that some of the stretching we will do will also link to your gymnastics practice – such as forward and straddle folds. The one hour class may also contain breath work and/or some short mindfulness practice. Unwind with us on Wednesday nights @ 6:45!
Our flexibility class, on Wednesday at 6.30pm and 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
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 preparation for levers (straddle and pike) and in general on upper body strength, core, upper and lower back strength, hip mobility, having a 10 minutes final bit dedicated to handstand workout and progression.
Friday gymnastic strength will focus on progressions for compressions for handstand press (straddle and pike), also progression for tiger bends and planches (tuck and straddle). The class will also focus on reinforcing your lower back, good for the health of your spine, and your flips too.
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.
This class will offer you conditioning and progressions for headstand and handstands.
Work on body shaping, flexibility for wrists and shoulders and specific core workout.
Open to all levels with different challenges depending on your ability.
Get the opportunity to improve your strength and balance while staying at home.
What do you need?
A wall, a tree or any solid vertical surface you can use for handstands.
Some pillows, to make your practice comfortable and safe.
