‘Movement is the door to learning’

2018-07-04 06:02

CHILDREN no longer have to sit still to learn — learning can be easy and fun. Paul Dennison, the founder of Brain Gym, said: “movement is the door to learning”.

Brain Gym comprises 26 sensory motor activities that recall the movements children naturally do during their first years of life as they learn to co-ordinate their eyes, ears, hands and whole body. These structured movements integrate the right and left hemisphere of the brain and shifts one out of stress and into a natural, calm state.

Educational Kinesiology is used to assist people in unlocking their potential. This is done by formulating goals and finding out what is internally blocking them from self achievement. Specialised techniques are used to diffuse these blocks. This creates a bridge for new learning and a positive change in mindset.

Farah Manjoo is the only registered Brain Gym Practitioner and Educational Kinesiologist in KZN. She offers private sessions to students of all ages and she will be hosting Brain Gym workshops for mothers and caregivers soon.

Make the most of your brain and book a session or register for an upcoming workshop.

Farah Manjoo is based in Stanger and Salt Rock, Ballito — KZN. (see advert on page 19)
