So I posted on facebook to no avail, so I’m hoping that someone in the world of the internet can direct me to Gymnastic Classes in Thane or even Mumbai (weekend class).
So far here is what I’ve found in regard to a “real” gymnastics class in Mumbai (and Thane and Navi Mumbai, just in case) wink! These do include rhythmic gymnastics as well.

Benefits of gymnastics?
Here’s the thing, I don’t see my children being the next top gymnasts, but even basic tumbling classes are not to be found. My son is a climber and I’d love for him to perfect the jumps he attempts. He has strength for it as well. My daughter loves dance but the ones nearby are all either classical Indian (which she doesn’t have interest in and doesn’t have patience for) or hip-hop (which she doesn’t like either). I know it is a matter of picking from what you got as well. But, they both enjoyed Teacher Susie’s tumbling classes through City of Phoenix.
You’d think of the almost 2 million people in Thane there’d be some real gymnastics classes here, right? So I’m starting a list, you can add comments if you know of any or hear of any gymnastics classes in the Mumbai metro area. Thanks!
At this point I’m so much up in the air on schools for next year that if one offered gymnastics I may just choose it… Well not really, but all but 2 schools in all of Thane have one of three curricula and the syllabus is followed to a tee!
