Physical Development of Children

Use the whole body for learning. Connect global human movement patterns (e.g. reflexes) and intentional physical activities to increase focus, enhance creativity, allow children to become grounded and centered and improve sensorial skills such as listening, vision, communication, and eye-hand coordination. This workshop is based on the Brain Gym theory; it is available online or in person. (2 hours)
