Movement is the door to learning

Every morning at Hannaford we do Brain Gym with our learners and that applies to the basics of neuroscience.
Everything in our body is interconnected and the neurological system is hierarchical and higher level functions depend on those at lower levels.
Movement is responsible for the structure of the brain and each time we move a little bit of chemical is released.
Movement stimulates the nerves, including the brain, so we are restructuring the brain and strengthening all those connections which make the system work properly.
Brain Gym is a series of movements and postures specifically compiled with the purpose of integrating the body and the brain.

The movements build pathways in the brain. It is a practical process to identify inefficient habits and to transform old habits or behaviour. People who find learning and remembering easy, have a myriad of pathways and highways to all parts of the brain. Learning is a process that never stops and it is not all in our head. We anchor learning through movement. Learning is fun with Brain Gym and this is done through neuro-integration using quick and energising movements. It is a common-sense, non-invasive alternative to drug therapy. Behaviours as listed below can be addressed:

Motivation, Memory, Trauma, ADD/ADHD, Learning abilities, Stress management, Self-awarness and Concentration.
Movement also assists with Self-esteem, Co-ordination, Communication, Spatial intelligence and Goal setting.
