USA Gymnastics Safety Certified
Hello everyone! My name is Fortunata and I started doing gymnastics in Lithuania when I was 6 years old. I moved to the U.S. about 13 years ago and continued doing gymnastics in Concord, California. I started coaching at a young age to help pay for my gymnastics tuition and continue doing that to this day. Gymnastics taught me how to be independent, confident, thoughtful, and hard working; while doing something I really love. I have just as much passion for teaching gymnastics as I do for doing it. My favorite gymnastics skill is handstands. Not only it is so much fun to be upside down, but it also symbolizes seeing the world from a different point of view.
Currently, I am a student at CSU East Bay pursuing a bachelor's degree in Communications and Media Studies. I will be continuing my career in education once I finish school. Besides coaching and doing school work, I keep myself busy with other activities. I am absolutely in love with yoga and I believe that it is an essential part of my life. I also belong to an amazing rock climbing community, where I teach a handstand class for all ages. I have a lot of passion for climbing indoors and outdoors. Furthermore, I enjoy playing musical instruments such as piano and guitar.
