Mondays 6.45pm-7.45pm Slow Flow Yoga As the name suggests this is the slower paced of my classes - best for beginners as the pace allows more time to learn poses and movement technique. Advanced yogis who like to take things slow are also welcome!
Thursdays 6.45pm-7.45pm Dynamic Yoga A dynamic vinyasa flow, which is a little more demanding than the sunday vinyasa class. Good for those that like a little more challenge and intensity. Em usually teaches a theme from week to week which can vary from body area, peak yoga pose or philosophical principle.
Saturdays 8.30am-9.30am Ashtanga Yoga This class is based on the traditional Ashtanga sequence. The class is challenging, but the majority of the poses are the same each week, therefore a good choice for those who like repetition and familiarity.
Sundays 11.30am-12.30pm Vinyasa Yoga An intermediate level vinyasa flow. Em usually teaches a theme from week to week which can vary from body area, peak yoga pose or philosophical principle.
BENCHMARK GYMNASTIC – PARENT AND TODDLER
Benchmark Gymnastics are delighted to offer Parent and Toddler Classes at Tooting Bec Lido. You can book a taster for £6.50 by booking here
Our British Gymnastics compliant programme at Benchmark Gymnastics was designed by two early year practitioners. Our British Gymnastics Pre School qualified coaches who deliver the classes are very passionate about what they do and are always on hand to help and assist you with supporting techniques ,teaching children basic gymnastic skills through appropriate progressions. These classes are designed to support the key learning and developmental areas set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework(EYFS). We are always working closely with British Gymnastics to extend and improve what we offer. During classes the children, age walking to and their accompanying adults are transported into a world of adventure with our qualified pre school coaches who provide a safe, fun and stimulating environment in which to explore the activities together.
Every week we look at a different theme, starting with discussing the clue found in the golden box. What will it be this week....? A fun, musical, interactive warm up follows which incorporates varying hand apparatus and action songs. Once thoroughly warmed up the exploration of the large apparatus follows, where the children have an opportunity to roll, balance, jump and move in order to enhance their development, as well as having an essential bonding time with their adult. We also use this as an opportunity to introduce life skills such as taking turns, sharing, etc. The session finishes with a cool down which includes bubbles ,action songs, music and more fun!
The class is suitable for parents ,nannies and grandparents to bring their little ones. We try to accommodate accompanying babies where possible and would suggest a taster class to see if the session will work for you.
