Whatever you wear, it should be flexible and comfortable since the body is moving in many directions during class.
Q. Can my daughter or son take classes even if she is currently at another gym with a team program?
A. Definitely! Use our facility as a supplement to your child’s training in any way you wish whether it’s for yoga or gymnastics, you are always welcome! Dominique wants to assist as many children as possible attain their goals, enjoy the sport safely, as well as provide insight. Sometimes a gymnast requires additional hours work on those specific skills s/he may want to improve upon, and this time spent on skill work can be achieved through our camps or classes. Many gymnastics clubs don’t offer the yoga classes we do, so please pop in any time and take a class! It is advised to register online for the advanced gymnastics classes if you are a team level gymnast in order to make sure spots are available. High school gymnasts are welcome here as well for additional training any time of the year. The Advanced Gymnastics II class is taught by Dominique Moceanu, and will be the highest level class offered prior to moving to a team program gym club. In this class, students will focus on specific skill work with specific goals per week, and any students “popping in” can join the flow of the class. We will work on many things, but the focus is deep skill and technical work to meet the needs of each individual’s goal. This is a great way to introduce supplemental training if you visit us from an existing team program gym. There’s many ways to improve your gymnastics, so think outside the box!
Q. Can I drop my child(ren) off at a gymnastics class and take a yoga class simultaneously?
A. Of course! In fact, it is encouraged as we are a center where safety of sport, as well as health and fitness, is central in all we do. We want families to destress while their children are taking a class! It’s a win-win for everyone! Families are always encouraged to pop in to a yoga class for their own well-being and physical fitness!
Q. Can children participate in yoga?
A. Definitely! There are age appropriate sessions throughout the week. Please view the online schedule for the yoga classes offered for children.
Q. Can I invite a friend to take a yoga class?
A. Definitely! Bring a friend to any yoga class at any time, and they can receive our “drop in” rate. Just remember to register your guest online so we have appropriate space. If you forget, stop by our front desk to make sure space is available! Call ahead of time to double check spacing if you haven’t registered your guest online. We will do our best to accommodate; however, spacing is limited once the session fills up.

There should always a parent/guardian/or adult 21 years of age or older sitting in on the lesson at all times. If this cannot be arranged, the private lesson may not take place.
Q. Should my child(ren) take only one class per week?
A. It is advised that if you wish for your child to improve their skills at a faster rate, you take two classes per week (if possible). However, one class a week is always acceptable. The results may come much faster, however, if two classes a week are taken. It is truly up to each family to decide how many classes they wish to participate in. Just keep in mind, if one is seeking to improve faster and loves the sport, two classes a week is ideal for ideal physical fitness and improvement.

Feel free to review all of our class descriptions online and choose the best option for your child. For compulsory levels 5 and under, a beginner to intermediate class would be appropriate based on skill level of the child. Review our skill goals for the levels in the class description carefully. Think of our intermediate classes as level 6/7, and then Level 8+ is our advanced class equivalent. We focus on the integrity and technique of the skill and take our time to properly develop each child properly.
Q. How can I register my child?
A. Visit our website www.DominiqueMoceanuGymnasticsCenter.com and click on the “Gymnastics” tab. Then, visit “Class Schedule”. Create a parent portal, and then you can enroll in any classes.
Q. How can I register for yoga?
A. You have two ways to register. 1.) Visit our website and click on the “Yoga” tab and register for contracts (we have Gold, Silver and Bronze Medal contracts monthly and annual contracts as well), or 2.) Download the free Mindbody app, and register on a per class basis directly from the app. We offer a one class pass so you can try out any class, 5 class pass (for those wishing to try more classes per month), a 10 class pass (for more regular customers coming often to yoga classes), and an Unlimited month pass (this allows you access to as many classes as you wish for the month). Additionally, we offer a student/senior citizen class rate for a one class pass.
Q. How much is kids yoga? And, when are the classes offered?
A. There is a flat rate for kids yoga of $20/class. Typically, our kids yoga classes are Tuesday’s and Thursdays, but our schedule can change so please view the class schedule on the Mindbody app. Kids yoga for ages 3-6 is 4:00pm-4:30pm, and for ages 7-15 it is 4:30pm-5:00pm. All class offerings for yoga are on a first come first serve basis so always register online to reserve your spot. Once we fill up, you’ll be placed on a waiting list, and we may or may not have room once we are at capacity. It is always advised to register yourself in a class ahead of time. If there is room, the app will let you know. Mindbody will also let you know if we are at capacity. Typically capacity is 17 people.
Q. Are there yoga classes available when my children are in gymnastics classes?
A. Definitely! Simply visit the mind body app on your phone, and review the classes offered during the same time as your children’s classes, and see what makes sense for your schedule, then sign yourself into a class!
Q. How are the children evaluated in gymnastics classes?
A. Children are evaluated within the first three class sessions. Coaches will not make a huge deal about the evaluation being done to avoid unnecessary anxiety on the child, but the coach will kindly ask the child to show their skills during practice. The skills may also already be incorporated during the class, and the coaches will have their evaluation form so they will 1.) Assess and evaluate where the child is at currently when they arrive at DMGC, then 2.) Where the child needs to improve and gain better technical aspect of the skill, and 3.) If the child can do the skill with more integrity (aka: excellent form, proper technique, maximum potential). Parents must understand that doing the skill correctly technically and with integrity take more time to master (and could be an ongoing effort for the duration of their time as a gymnast). It is a longer road rather than just marking the skill off the skill chart only when s/he gets it. We focus on the integrity of the skill before they fully can mark off the skill completion with integrity. There are little rewards along the way, however!
Q. How does my child pass to the next level?
A. The gymnast must complete the skill chart goals (with integrity) from each level (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced etc.) of gymnastics prior to moving on to the next level. This takes time to master so parents be full understanding that developing proper technique and skills in this sport can take years for some children. The benefits of your children in the sport far outweigh just placing emphasis on the skills only. Sure, it is always exciting to gain a new skill, but the entire sport provides so many great developmental benefits of good health, physical fitness, discipline, self-confidence, positive self-image, transformative growth and beyond. Many gymnasts go on to typically become very high achievers simply by dedicating themselves to the sport and all of its offerings. As a parent, always keep this in mind for your child’s benefit.
Q. How often should my child take yoga?
A. Since we are a center focused on good health and family fitness. We highly recommend that all of our gymnasts take at the very least one yoga class a week to benefit their overall health and well-being. This is for their mental clarity. Yoga is a great way to teach children early on how to breath to decompress, and yoga can give them tools to destress to deal with anxieties, pressures and other stressors. Science has proven how beneficial yoga is from a mental and physical perspective. To gain the measurable overall health benefits, we recommend up to two gymnastics classes a week and two yoga classes (or more) a week. This dedication would be phenomenal for your child’s overall well-being. However, it is up to each family what they choose to enroll and partake in. We simply recommend suggestions.
Q. Can my child take private lessons with any coach?
A. Yes, they can take private lessons with any of our staff members. Simply, reach out to the staff member through our office. Our secretary or evening receptionist can take a message for the staff member and the staff member can contact you via email or by phone. Simply leave all the important details for our office to pass along to the staff member. Important details which need to be left: 1. Full name of parent, 2. Name of gymnast, 3. Level of gymnast, 4. Private lesson goals, 5. Phone Number to contact, 6. Email to contact, 7. Are you a DMGC member? If no, which gym are you coming from? 8. Fill out a waiver form for the lesson and leave it with our front desk. If you wish to have private lessons with Dominique Moceanu, simply visit our website www.DominiqueMoceanuGymnasticsCenter.com, and click on the “Private Lessons” tab to book with her through schedulicity. All staff set their own private lessons rate, and will inform you of their prices once you’ve communicated with them.
Schedule subject to change based on availability. Please call ahead to assure that your class is available.
