Brain Gym® 101 is a movement-based, learning-readiness course and is the foundational course of the Educational Kinesthetics program.
Brain Gym 101 offers each participant the opportunity to learn and practice this dynamic system of easy-to-use and simple to-do movements to integrate the functioning of the brain. BG 101 activities are designed to reduce the impact of stress on the brain-body connections. Specific activities stimulate various areas of the brain to improve the ability to focus, maintain attention, enhance motor movement, heighten academic skills, increase confidence and self-awareness, and rediscover the natural joy of learning and doing.
Created by Dr. Paul Dennison, Brain Gym 101 draws on techniques from many fields such as applied kinesiology, chiropractic, left/right brain research, developmental optometry, and psychology.
Ideal for teachers and special education teachers, ECE’s, therapists, daycare staff, parents, coaches and dance teachers, pediatric massage therapists, caregivers.
