COURSES
Movement Exploration I – Saturday-Tuesday, June 22-25, 2019  9:00-6:00 (pdf)online form
This course takes an in depth look at the developmental movement patterns and the early reflexes that build them. Here we explore the development of the core movement of the body and its contribution to our ease of learning. When we experience stress, we revert to our last stable developmental movement pattern. This could mean exceptional stress in the body and sensory systems to perform a task. The body will compensate to perform a task. However, the compensation does not support efficient use of the body. Consequently, challenges to coordinate the body and sensory systems may arise inhibiting the learning process. Throughout the course, we will build new observation skills and understanding of learning challenges; practice new tools to support learning readiness for efficient movement; and support sensory processing.
