Our family had the pleasure of enrolling our (at the time) 2 1/2 year old son Sam in Natalija’s Playgym session at ESGC, and it was simply a joy attending each week.

I looked forward to every lesson as much as Sam did! Natalija proved herself to be an invaluable and highly knowledgeable instructor, who is personable and genuinely compassionate with the children. Sam blossomed under her instruction, and made a lovely friendship in the process. Not only did he have a chance to exercise and practise his gross motor skills, but also discipline, self-confidence, patience, success as well as disappointment – all under the careful and watchful eye of Natalija, who so obviously puts the best interest of her students first.

Sam spent a year at Playgym before we moved out of the Auckland area, but had we stayed, Sam would have practised gymnastics with Natalija for as long as she was teaching. Anyone is lucky to have her, and she is truly missed by our entire family.


Warm Regards,

If you love ESGC, please send us your testimonial and we’d love to add it to the page!

My two girls have attended Eastern Suburbs Gym Club since they were 3 years old. With both children having had developmental issues with their hips we were keen to see them build some muscular strength and stability and increased confidence to help with their long term prognosis. The coaching staff were understanding and accommodating and helped us greatly. The results for us have been well worth the efforts. Both girls are fully functional and our more problematic child is now a confident and strong competitive gymnast who greatly enjoys her gym community. I’d highly recommend the program and the club to any parent looking for a fun activity for their child with the added benefits of strength, co-ordination and confidence.

Thank you so much for your wonderful playgym classes. My daughter loves them and is so much more confident now. I especially appreciate how she lands on her feet when she falls now!

My four year old daughter has been attending Playgym and Playgym Plus for just over a year, and recently my two year old daughter has also joined Playgym. Under Natalija my children have gained a great deal of confidence, improved their behaviour, and have learned to focus on specific tasks when instructed. Violet and Loretta really enjoy coming to Playgym and look forward to it every week.
ESGC has provided our daughter with many years of gymnastics experiences at a variety of levels. It is great to see how the children are constantly progressing by learning new skills and moving into the appropriate type and level of class for them. ESGC seems to have a class for everyone of every ability!
