What is Brain Gym?
Brain Gym  is a program of 26 physical movements that enhance learning & performance in all areas. Developed in the 1970's through the work of educators Dr.Paul & Gail Dennison in response to their quest to seek more effective ways to help children & adults with learning difficulties. Brain Gym is an innovative new approach to learning that was drawn from a wide body of research from developmental specialists focused on the role that physical movements played in enhancing learning abilities. Brain Gym has received world wide appraise & is now used in more than 80 countries, taught is thousands of schools & in areas as diverse as the performing arts, athletics & the corporate world. Brain Gym is similar & different to other movement programs in that Brain Gym helps to increase flexibility & coordination, but differs from other programs because it also provides specific activities to facilitate brain function for physical skills required for activities such as reading, writing & spelling.

How does Brain Gym work?

In nature, the brain's neural pathways & connections are developed through movement. Brain Gym works by promoting specific movement experiences which assist in facilitating optimal achievement of mental potential. All acts of speech, learning, vision & coordination are learned through a complex repertoire of movement. Brain Gym through its specific movement exercises program promotes the efficient communication amongst these many nerve cells & functional centres located throughout the brain's sensory motor system. Learning problems arise when communication between these centres, for example, when the eyes & ears are blocked. Brain Gym exercises stimulate the flow  of information within the brain & sensory system freeing the innate ability to learn & function at top efficiency. The physiological basis of how & why Brain Gym works is expanded upon by Carla Hannaford PhD in her book called Smart Moves in the Brain Gym books section.
