This 24-hour course is certified by the Educational Kinesiology Foundation. It is a fun, safe and amazingly effective system for activating and sustaining your learning capabilities. This is accomplished through simple, quick and enjoyable movements that directly enhance brain function. This course teaches the individual how to integrate their brain/body for maximum performance for reading, writing, spelling and memory. Empowering for any individual.
BRAIN GYM® is Edu-K’s readiness program. It prepares students of all ages to practice and master the skills required for the mechanics of learning. The program includes a simple teaching format, a language for stress-free learning, and a series of movements for integrating learning into the physiology. BRAIN GYM® offers the learner a self-directed system with which to pace individual learning needs, building self-esteem through the successful mastery of skills.
Specific strategies for improving reading writing, spelling, math, communication and organization skills are included. Patterns of stress and addiction are explained in terms of the brain and physiology. Tools for alleviating these stresses are included.
hr. Brain Gym® elective introduces the concept
of hemispheric specialization, identification and balancing to facilitate
learning. The Dominance Profiles described by the Dennisons identify
the lateral dominance of eyes, ears and hands in relation to the dominant
brain hemisphere. These patterns of lateral dominance greatly influence
the way that an individual internally processes information and consequently
the kinds of learning activities he or she prefers. Participants learn
to identify their dominance pattern and integration potential.
hr. course provides a roadmap to completion of development skills through
play and art. It offers vision enhancement through
activities, which nourish perceptual flexibility. Students experience
movements for expanded visual, auditory, tactile, kinesthetic and abstract
thinking skills. Participants will learn 32 Vision Gym movements for
integrating sensory awareness, memory, and information processing.
This 16-hour workshop will wake up and expand your ability to think
more clearly, coordinate your brain and body together, improve your memory,
improve your ability to focus and concentrate; and most of all release
physical, mental and emotional stress in your life. In this workshop
we will explore how our senses are related to our vestibular system and
how this effects learning. Discover how to achieve your potential with
simple and effective tools that are fun and rewarding.
Touch for Health (Levels I – IV) is a proven process of health management and improvement, based on balancing the structural, chemical, and emotional elements in our bodies. Every family or individual could benefit from knowing the basic level 1 course to manage their family’s health. This is something that can be used daily for stresses that rob us of feeling on top of our game and keep us from feeling full of vitality. Level I is also one of the basic fundamental courses for all Kinesiology courses. In Level I we will learn the first 14 pairs of muscles and corresponding neurolymphatic points, neurovascular points, spinal vertebrae technique, meridians, origin and insertion, and how to put it all together to be able to balance the major postural muscles. We will also learn simple pain relieving and emotional stress release techniques.
Each additional level of Touch For Health adds 14 new muscles until we know the 42 major muscles, correction techniques, theory of the Chinese Law of the Five Elements, etc.
CHILDREN WITH CHALLENGES
This course individualizes programs for children who have different developmental challenges: displaying aggressive behavior, worry and fear, low learning motivation and laziness, chronic school failure and dyslexia, hyperactivity (ADD and ADHD), autism, cerebral palsy and delayed intellectual and emotional development.
In stressful situations the Infant reflexes are being activated and survival behavior on the level of “fight or flight comes to the surface (Moro, Tendon Guard, Symmetric Tonic Neck Reflex and many others). Stress can accompany the development even during fetal life or infant stage of life and so can influence other developmental stages.
This Course to which we have the honor of inviting you will cover the above statements and teach the following:
Looking and feeling better is one reason why we seek to improve our energy level. Low energy, fatigue, pain and loss of motivation are all signs that our body is functioning at less than its best. In this workshop, we are considering two other energy systems, which the Tibetans describe as Figure 8' energy flow and Spinning Vortices. The Figure 8's have been shown to be extremely powerful energy corrections that can be used to balance the energy of other systems in the body. The Spinning Vortices are seven magnetic centers that revolve at great speed in a healthy body but when slowed down are the cause of old age, ill health and disease.
Collages created in this four to five hour workshop become visual representations, of thoughts, dreams and wishes. It helps to give the focus and direction that allows each participant the opportunity to take the responsibility for the change in their life. This collage workshop is unique in the way it will bring in aspects of your five senses and your past, present and future. You can focus on any aspect of your life in which you desire change, happiness, success or healing. Working with imagery helps one broaden possibilities and create growth. The process is FUN, POSITIVE and PERSONAL. Come experience this powerful medium and start creating your future today.
This eight hour course combines the skills and inner discipline of golf with Educational kinesiology balances and movements. Learn the buddy system and self-referral processes, Brain Gym activities, and the soft skills of golf. The integrated golfer moves from “try” to “natural” for a whole new golf experience. It enriches the golfing experience by “switching on the whole brain” for each step of the golfing process. >more golf info
The Edu-Kinesthetics In-Depth course contains the theoretical knowledge and matches it with the unique needs of the student’s own learning process. Using a multi-dimensional approach tha enhances integrated brain/body learning.
In this course, you learn and practice the Advanced Edu-K principles of one-to-one consultation.
The Brain Gym Teacher Practicum is a professional, experiential training which provides skills that support the emergence of the authentic, creative teacher in each participant. This course gives students a deeper understanding of Educational Kinesiology and an expanded sense of the value of this dynamic learning facilitation process for both personal and professional growth. It is the ‘practicum’ phase of our training program, building upon the knowledge, theory, and experience of the Level I and II courses. Graduates of this course are certified by the Foundation to teach the Brain Gym course, and to present themselves as Brain Gym instructors. The Teacher Practicum empowers the graduate to communicate and network easily and confidently with other professionals in the community.
Educational Kinesiology is assisting thousands of people world-wide, and is growing rapidly in Canada. Successful Edu-K consultants are working with a wide variety of issues, such as learning problems, personal growth, athletic ability and improvement in health and wellness.
A simple non invasive system of relaxing jaw muscles enabling the Temporomandibular joint to reset. By relaxing the jaw muschles the TNJ is correctly reset. The TMJ, due to its central role in cranial and spinal dynamics, affects the uality of the brain/muscular feedback system. The slightest tension in the jaw muscles can alter the normal ‘balanced’ position of the TMJ, causing confused electrical messages to be relayed throughout the body. When you balance the jaw - you balance the body. This technique can be done on others lying down or sitting as well as be done on yourself.
Taught by Dr. Svetlana Masgutova
Learn about lifelong reflexes such as gravitation, grounding, balancing, centering, head righting, tendon guard, and others. These reflexes function throughout life so it is important to have them integrated in the whole movement system. They enhance physical skills and sports performance as well as enrich mental clarity for all ages.
Learn how during physical or emotional stress our survival reactions are being activated to help us cope and overcome challenges. On the very basic level the reactions or reflexes of grounding, balancing, etc. are being activated. The reflex activation can narrow our conscience activity and block learning and development.
