with Teresa Tam
begins October 2nd
ABOUT THE CLASS
The BrainDance is an excellent full-body
exercise. The 8 BrainDance movement patterns
focus on the fundamental movement patterns which originally wired our
brain/central nervous system. Itís based on developmental movement patterns that babies do as they
develop their primary reflexes that are the foundation for healthy brain
development. As children and adults, it is helpful to continue to review these
patterns to help keep our bodies strong and minds sharp. This class will incorporate the BrainDance patterns in a fun atmosphere thatís great for all
levels and abilities. Chairs are available for those who wish to dance seated.
These BrainDance patterns are the
foundation for all movement and support optimal movement & cognitive
function in any activity you do. Bring agility, balance, strength and
ease to all of the movement & cognitive activities in your life.
We can expand our possibilities for moving and thus living.
A five minute standing BrainDance is a wonderful morning wake-up/work break/study
