The Palaestra promotes smiles, laughter and a life-long love of movement for every child! Becki Weathers is the owner and manager of The Palaestra L.L.C. Ms.

The Palaestra opened its doors in June 2001 with 3,400 square feet of space. After three years we moved to our second location in Farmers Branch, TX, where we were able to expand our gymnastics programs into a 15,000 square foot facility. After six years in our second location and successfully building a totally β€œAWESOME” program, The Palaestra found its permanent home! We have 24,000 square feet

Operating as usual
