What is Brain Gym®?
Educational Kinesiology (Edu-K)
Brain Gym® is a lifelong educational, movement-based program. The simple movements integrate the whole brain, senses and body, preparing the person with the physical skills they need to live and learn more effectively.
Brain Gym® is the core of Educational Kinesiology (Edu-K), the study and application of posture and movement. Incorporating 26 specific, easy and enjoyable activities, Brain Gym® develops the brain’s neural pathways the way nature does – through movement – and can be used to enhance academic skills, relationships and physical coordination. It is the result of many years of research into learning and brain function by American educator, Dr Paul Dennison PhD.
Brain Gym® is now used in over 70 countries. It is recognised as a safe, effective and innovative educational and self-development tool, which integrates body and mind to bring about rapid and often dramatic improvements in many areas such as concentration, memory, reading, writing, organising, listening, physical coordination, attitude and motivation.
