April 2011 Brain Gym Course Available

Since the 1980s, the field of Educational Kinesiology (Edu-K)- the study of movement and its relationship to learning – has touched people of all ages and cultures. It demonstrates that, when the neuropathways for movement are fired, they activate and connect the whole brain in the synergistic way necessary for growth and change.

In the spirit of true education, we in Edu-K do our best to accept ourselves as individuals with unique challenges and great potential. We seek to meet ourselves where we are, honour that place, and stay open to learning at our own pace, for our own intrinsic worth. As a participant / student of Brain Gym (R) courses, you will now have a perpetual opportunity to move through the rich landscape of your own sensory integration. As you rediscover the physical skills involved in your personal/child/students’ learning process, you’ll realise how each one of us is engaged in lifelong odyssey of growth.

Phoebe and Dr. Paul Dennison, the Founder of Brain Gym International

She has the privilege of hands-on learning and experiencing Brain Gym with Dr. Paul Dennison (Founder of Brain Gym International), Dr. Carla Hannaford (Author of various books i.e. Smart Moves, The Dominance Factor, Awakening the Child Heart and Playing in the Unified Field), Cecilia Koester (Author of Interfacing Brain Gym with Children who have Special Needs)  and many other dedicated and passionate instructors.

Brain Gym® is a program of easy physical movements that synchronize body and mind to optimize how we learn and perform in all areas of our lives at…

School.. Arts.. Athletics.. Social skills..

The movements are easy to do and enjoyable for adults, children, and seniors, and they bring about rapid and lasting changes in fundamental abilities, including : focus, organization, comprehension, physical coordination, social and communication skills, memory, attentiveness, and more.

“Brain Gym began as breakthrough for overcoming learning disabilities, but soon expanded into a program for drawing out potential at every level of skill and achievement.”

When Dr. Peter Cox, former U.S. Fencing Team gold medallist, was preparing for the Olympics, his training schedule included Brain Gym. “I was amazed at the results,” he wrote, “and so were my opponents.”

In the 1970s, educational therapist Paul E. Dennison, PhD, began drawing from and building on this knowledge to create a group of movement that, with the eventual collaboration of his wife and partner, Gail E. Dennison, would become the Brain Gym movements and the cornerstone of the field of Educational Kinesiology (“enhanced learning through movement”).

“What is particularly noteworthy about the Brain Gym results is that the changes are rapid, far-reaching, and lasting… Within a year, a surprising number of those students were transferred into classes for gifted students.”

said Svetlana Masgutova, PhD, a psychologist in Russia, used Brain Gym with ‘learning disabled’ high school students who had been placed in remedial classes.

Developmental experts have known for more than 80 years that physical movement activates the brain and enhances learning

These early versions of the Brain Gym movements achieved their first success in California’s Valley Remedial Group learning centres. There they enabled many children and adults who had been identified as “dyslexic,” “ADD,” “hyperactive,” or “learning disabled” to discover and develop their true potential. Subsequent studies published in North America, Germany, Australia and elsewhere confirmed that the Brain Gym movements produced measurable gains in physical skills, learning skills, and academic performances.
