Dara Orlando is somewhat of a Thespian legend. This Thespian alum has grown up to become a corporate executive/working mom. Read on to learn how she manages the demands and stays as centered as she can.

Welcome to Season 3!! Episode 31 takes us back to the class of 2003.

Now, she is sharing her own vision with the world.

In part 4 of my conversation with Tammy, we talk about eliminating the "end-date" drama, coaching from experience, the benefits of Geriatric Gymnastics, and setting goals in gymnastics training.
We love telling stories about our gymnastics escapades. In part 3, Tammy and I talk about dealing with injuries, building bone strength, balance, and positive self-concept, and our thoughts on progress (which is never linear).
In part two of my conversation with Tammy Goedken, we talk about our observations as coaches for the adult set, and how we believe that gymnastics is the most fun way to condition your body (and soul).
Welcome to the first episode of my new series, Conversations With The Geriatric Gymnast! For 15 years, I've learned more about my capabilities in the gym than I have anywhere else. Now, my flippy friends and I have some things to share with the world.
As if I didn't have anything better to do, I've embarked upon a new Geriatric Gymnastics project. Along with this blog, the Changed for the Better podcast and blog, and working full-time as a high school dance and PE teacher, I was inspired to create a little something to further celebrate my cultish adult gymnastics obsession.
