New gymnastics class for y’all to know about: Starting June 12, National Kids Gym is starting a 10-week tumbling series at Roots Philly Yoga Studio. The class is open from kids 3 to 8, and focuses on beginners … so development, increased coordination and balance, and more confidence. It will run on Tuesdays from 4 to 4:45 p.m. for 3- to 5-year-olds and 5 to 5:45 p.m. for 6- to 8-year-olds.
