Welcome to our fourth 'Meet the Team' blog post!
We have asked all our team 10 questions about themselves and the gym so you can find out a little more about us.
Jana joined The Little Gym of Wandsworth in summer of 2016 and is an absolutely wonderful instructor teaching children aged 19 months - 12 years.
Jana thinks The Little Gym has the perfect approach to teaching children how to have some “serious fun” and at the same time maybe turn those cute Beasties into acrobatic Aerial butterflies. Her favourite TLG story would be the joy the children show at every little achievement in class!
Jana come's from a background of dance. From a very young age she practiced all different forms of dance and once old enough, went on to teach it in her hometown of Bratislava, Slovakia. She has a Masters degree in Physical Theatre and also founded her own Contemporary Circus company together with a friend. Her specialty was Static Trapeze, Silk and Acrobalance…yep, all very high in the air!
