Personal Gymnastics Lessons in London


Gymnastics For Children

with coach Stefan

Dear Parents,

With more than 10 years experience of teaching children at all levels, ages and abilities, I provide one to one gymnastics lessons, in the comfort of your own home or at selected studios (listed below on this page) in London. My lessons follow fundamental principles in gymnastics coaching based on my scientific research (conducted throughout my Bachelor's, Master's and PhD degrees), and they are geared towards your personal goals. I teach children between the ages of 5 and 11 years of age, on a one to one basis in London.

Gymnastics is an important activity for the healthy growth and development of all children. In particular, gymnastics promotes the development of coordination, strength, muscular endurance, flexibility and balance. So, why don't you try a gymnastics session for your child with me, coach Stefan? Here is my Price List »

For the last few years I have focused on the health-related physical fitness of children, along with ways to improve our health and sports results through a course of exercise and a balanced diet. Please take a moment to view my research papers and scientific presentations, which are available for reading on this website.

Personal Gymnastics Sessions with a Professional Teacher

What Do I Offer?

Gymnastics lessons for your child/children in the comfort of your own home or at selected studios. Your children will learn many gymnastics skills (jumps, balances, rolls, cartwheels, handstands, walkovers, handsprings, somersaults, etc.) and create positive attitudes towards physical activity while developing their strength, flexibility and coordination. You will need just a little bit of space at your home, and a yoga/gym mat to start.

If you do not have enough space at your home, you can book personal gymnastics lessons with me at selected studios in London. These sessions are more expensive than the home lessons due to the extra rental cost.



I offer personal gymnastics sessions for children at The Kensington Studio. The studio is located in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, 6 minutes walk from High Street Kensington tube station, 8 minutes walk from Gloucester Road tube station, and 5 minutes walk from Earls Court tube station (Earls Court Road exit).

Your Coach is a registered Exercise Professional

Who will be Your Coach?

All sessions are conducted by me, coach Stefan. I have been working as a gymnastics coach for more than ten years. I have a full DBS clearance, safeguarding qualification, First Aid certificate, British Gymnastics Coaching Qualification, and I have been awarded with the Level 6 Personal Trainer, Advanced Health and Exercise Specialist by the European Register of Exercise Professionals.

I prepared many children for gymnastics competitions while working for the biggest gymnastics club in Bulgaria, Levski GC (between 2008 and 2012), and the Elite Gymnastics Academy CIC in London (between 2013 and 2020). Many of my gymnasts won certificates and medals from club, regional and national gymnastics competitions in Bulgaria and the UK. But above all, I am an athlete who is still taking part in gymnastics competitions, and I am proud to mention that I am a Three-Time London Rings Champion (2015, 2016 & 2017).
