WORKSHOP NAME
Brain Gym Movements

Participants in this workshop will physically discover how all learning begins in the body. Some creative ways to enhance the brain-body connection will be shared. Brain Gym is a program of easy physical movements that synchronize body and mind to optimize how we learn. The movements often bring about rapid and lasting changes in fundamental abilities including: focus, organization, comprehension, physical coordination, social and communication skills, memory, attentiveness, and more. It was developed in the 1970’s as what would becomes the cornerstone of the field of Educational Kinesiology “enhanced learning through movement.” (6 hours)

WORKSHOP NAME
Movement Based Learning–The Building Block Activities

This course offers participants methods and techniques that you can immediately use with the children or adults with whom you work. Much attention is given to noticing/assessment skills that also include basic stages of human development. The participant learns how to use the Building Block Activities that may create a foundation for new learning.
Students will:
• Observe basic developmental movement patterns of early childhood that will allow us to target specific brain function and offer a structure to explore the application of movement-based learning.
• Observe the gathering of information about how to apply movement-based learning to the childhood reflexes to enhance the child’s level of functioning.
• Learn and practice the Building Block Activities that are essential to developmental movement patterns.
