By completing a series of 26 specifically designed Brain Gym activities that are easy and enjoyable to do and directly enhance brain function, combined with a goal and a 5 step Edu-k balance process, integration occurs. Whole brain-body integration allows you to activate communication between the two brain hemispheres and the whole body for crossing the visual/auditory/kinesthetic and tactile midline. It is in this integrated state that you can experience the whole brain and body working together simultaneously and new learning can take place.
