Recreational Gymnastics &

Natural Movement Classes

in Nederland, Colorado

Serving our Nederland Colorado Area Mountain Families.

Ned Gymmies was created to offer our Mountain families ways to get their kids moving and grooving in our local, Colorado mountain community, without having to drive down the mountain. Our classes run throughout the school year in sessions that are two months or less.

We offer Recreational Gymnastics classes for children 1 through 13 years of age.

We plan to continue to add fun movement offerings. Please note that we have not yet started our Movement Mania classes, but intend to before the end of the year.


In our Recreational Gymnastics classes, our youngest movers enjoy learning alongside their parents in our Bunnies class. Children 3 and up take classes on their own in our Foxes, Mountain Lions, Deer and Moose classes. Our preschool age Foxes class focuses on fundamentals building blocks for a recreational gymnastics practice while the school-age classes focus on learning and honing core gymnastics skills.

We All Need to Get Moving!

“Movement in children can help increase memory, perception, language, attention, emotion and decision making. ... It is important that all young children are physically active every day. In fact, physical activity may play a bigger role in a child's development than previously believed.”

“It is important that all young children are physically active every day. In fact, physical activity may play a bigger role in a child’s development than previously believed. Research suggests that promoting movement and activity in young children can help increase memory, perception, language, attention, emotion and even decision making. When language is combined with movement, learning increases 90 percent. Movement has also been shown to help calm and promote alertness in infants.” - Michigan State University Extension

Science is revealing that sedentary lifestyles have similar negative health effects to smoking. We don’t let our children smoke cigarettes. So let’s keep them from being sedentary too! We have classes and summer camps for your children to learn to love moving their bodies. Let’s instill life long healthy habits of moving while making movement fun!

Teagan Blakey | Lead Gymnastics Coach

For 25 years I've lived in the mountains between Nederland and Boulder, and easily love the outdoors more than most places in town. Like many mountain kids I went to Nederland Elementary, but then homeschooled through middle and high school. I began gymnastics at the North Boulder Rec. Center at the age of 8 and officially left the team at the age of 20. After competing level 3 & 4 with the Boulder Flyers I practiced non-competitively through level 8. I began coaching with the same program in 2014 starting with the recreational classes. Now, I work with beginners through level 5 gymnasts. I still enjoy tumbling, swing bars, or jumping up on the beam from time to time to do those things that were once so daunting, and that so few people outside of the gym can do. Gymnastics taught me a great deal in courage, and dedication, and I'm proud of my strength and flexibility still.

As a coach I have a strong sense of responsibility to my students, and also enjoy that position of leadership. I enjoy teaching older children, who are more focused on learning, and can be challenged slightly more. However my greatest interest is to prepare other coaches to safely and confidently coach. As they learn I'm happy to step back. This extends to parents as well, so that they know how to safely support their little kids during class.

Outside of school & gymnastics I've managed two local non-profits focused on peace, public awareness/education, forestry and environmental responsibility, and spent a year working for a 3rd non-profit based in Lyons following the flood damage from 2013.

Kirsten Eileen Springer | Gymnastics Coach

I grew up in New Hampshire on an 85-acre farm with an apple orchard, sugar maple operation, and an organic greenhouse operation. My fondest teacher was my kindergarten teacher who ran a ½ day private kindergarten I attended from ages 4 to 5. My kindergarten teacher was also my ballet, tap and baton instructor in the afternoons. I moved on through High School in Atlanta, GA and was on the High School Gymnastics team. While on the Varsity team, I came in early mornings to help coach the 8th grade and B team girls.  I remember I was the one they always asked to try a new trick on the uneven parallel bars or balance beam (my 2 events) because I always came up laughing after a crash!  I would show them what not to do!

I went on after High School to Meredith Manor School of Horsemanship where I received my Riding Master qualifications.  I have encouraged many a child, many boys even, to start their love affair with the horse.

I am excited to be coaching the Ned Gymmies and getting back to a sport that I love.

Erin Lester | Founder, Director & Coach

Erin grew up in a small town, a child full of energy who loved playing outdoors after school with the neighborhood children and in organized sports at school and in clubs. Gymnastics was something you had to go to the “big city” to do until her mother joined up with other parents in her hometown to form a Gymnastics Club for the local kids. Erin enjoyed participating in gymnastics into her high school years.

Because tumbling has always been something that has given Erin joy, she started Ned Gymmies to give children in the Nederland area opportunities to move in fun and beneficial ways.

Since gymnastics Erin has enjoyed playing many team sports as well as long distance running, yoga, hiking, cycling, skiing and natural movement. She currently teaches yoga at Tadasana Mountain Yoga studio and helps run a Yoga Teacher Training program for her teacher Robert.
