Fitness Routines Featured in This DVD and Their Benefits

1. Smart Fitness Smart Foods : Midline Movements-   Benefits   These sequential, developmental movement patterns ( starting with spinal movement, then homologous movement, next homolateral  movement and finally contralateral (cross-crawl) movement) support and increase the depth of integration of the body and brain. They provide for exploration of each side of the midline before crossing the midline, helping in learning to read and write.

2. Step it up : Lateral Movements- Benefits

Lateral movements help children develop a sense of their left and right sideness of their bodies. Lateral movement is a key developmental step for learning to cross the midline.

3. Invite a Vitamin to Dinner : Benefits Physical activity helps to stimulate neural network connections. Movement integrates and anchors new information into neural pathways between the left and right hemispheres of the neo-cortex, helping to stimulate the brain and keep it young.

4. I'm Not Gonna be a Couch Potato:Energetic Movement  Benefits Increase heart rate and support cardiovascular health and endurance.

5. Veggie Power : Spinning, Tumbling movements  Benefits This fun, music-and -movement based routine helps participants improve concentration, focus, coordination and balance. Movements like spinning,tumbling and rolling - movements involving the vestibular system ( i.e. sensory system of the inner ear, coordinating with our eyes ) - support our senses of balance and spatial awareness. They are of particular benefit to learning and reducing stress.
