Meet Kylin, Tumbing and Trampoline(T&T) gymnastics competitor turned super-active teacher over the last eleven years. After teaching gymnastics for the last six years at Dynamite — her favorite form was always Tumbling and Trampoline (T&T), specifically trampoline — she decided to further her teaching by train in Floortime to better understand children's needs and development.
As a T&T instructor Kylin was strict yet caring with her kids and has carried that over into her Motion sessions. Her teaching style as nurturing and reward based but strict when it comes to skills and progressions she knows her students can perform.
“I take special care to watch my students closely and learn their strengths and weaknesses so I know the difference between when they are having an off day and when they just don’t want to do something.”
Kylin has been an athlete since the age of ten and has been to Nationals for T&T six times. She believes everyone deserves to be able to do anything they want to do and therefore helps her kids get stronger and learn the techniques they need for all-around progress.
