What’s the Double Doodle? Two hands moving in mirror image. When each hand holds a crayon or marker, the results are engaging and totally fun, not to mention a wonderful way to promote relaxed, whole-brain vision. In this one-day workshop you will experience five key Double Doodle hand movements, and put them to use in playful, engaging activities. Note: This is not “art”! It’s an opportunity to enjoy the fun of putting marks on paper in a Double Doodle way! Counts as 8 elective hours toward Brain Gym instructor licensure.

A one-day workshop to share techniques that support integration of the nervous system. Have you ever worked with a child (or teen, or adult) whose nervous system seems overly reactive, overwhelmed by sensory input? These Building Block activities support people of any age in developing a stronger internal sense of pattern and structure, so that external input can be more easily received and responded to. Perfect for those with developmental challenges, sensory integration issues, ADD/ADHD, brain injury, and more. No prerequisite – anyone may attend. Cecilia Koester created this workshop from the activities she teaches in her BG170 course. Kathy Brown, M.Ed., is authorized by her as a provider for this workshop. Counts as 8 hours toward BG instructor re-licensure.
No prerequisite – Anyone may attend!

You’ll also explore how a person’s brain organization profile may affect learning when under stress, and what to do about it, and much, much more.
Open to: graduates of the BG101 course. Required for Brain Gym instructor licensure.
Prerequisite: BG101

Touch for Health

Touch for Health is a means of quickly easing the discomfort of common aches, pains and stresses of daily living. This remarkable system utilizes “muscle checking” (kinesiology) to determine imbalances in muscle/meridian function and restores balance with gentle, safe, and effective acupressure techniques. Simple to learn, and so helpful to have in your wellness toolkit. We just concluded this course, and hope to offer it again in 2018, possibly in combination with Level 2. Please let us know if you’d be interested in participating in either Level 1 or 2, or both!

Educational Kinesiology In-Depth: The Seven Dimensions of Intelligence

The “In-Depth” course offers the core tools and techniques of Educational Kinesiology – the “big picture” of the Brain Gym® work. You’ll build on your experience of BG101, and learn how to process in four additional dimensions (Cranials, Breathing, Body Regulators, and Motivation), and expand your Learning Menu options with new tools that include acupressure and movement techniques, emotional balancing, vision re-education, and more. Taught by Brain Gym® International Faculty member Colleen Gardner.
