Brain Gym® 104 – a Level 100 Course – No Pre-requisites apply

Brain Gym® 104 is new 2 day course that replaces Brain Gym in the Classroom. Brain Gym 104 is an introduction into the Brain Gym movement based sensorimotor learning program.

When the brain and body work together in cooperation, the learner can move with confidence between what they know and what they are in the process of learning. Freeing up the body to move and stimulating the nervous system to integrate the body and brain for quality performance is the basis of the Brain Gym® program.

PACE – 4 movements to get ready for learning

The Brain Gym 26 Movements
