|Neurodevelopmental Movement for Adults|
Many adults have incomplete movement patterns left from infancy that cause unconscious, low-level stress in the body, mind and emotions.
Illness, injury or stress can also cause disruptions in our movement patterns. It makes sense. Our movement patterns do not exist in isolation. They are intimately bound to all of our functioning whether we are thinking, feeling or doing. No matter how old we are, we can positively enhance all of our functioning through movement.
During classes for adults, most participants experience movement disruptions to some degree that they were previously unaware of. They are often amazed at the changes they experience by doing Neurodevelopmental Movement.
Movement has a profound affect on the brain. Consider this finding in a 2003 study published in New England Journal of Medicine: “Elderly people who dance regularly decrease their risk of dementia/Alzheimer’s disease by 76%. . .” *
Neurodevelopmental Movement is one of our most powerful allies for creating mental focus, emotional well-being and physical strength and flexibility.
