At many of my seminars I talk about the Brain Gym movement exercises that were originally developed for children and adults with learning disabilities. I want to share Brain Gym Instructor Margaret Underwood's experience in New Zealand.

"I have been working in a school for 5 to 8 year old children for three years that is surrounded by barbed wire and security gates. In the last 2 years, they had no stabbings or chair throwings at all. This means the teachers have been able to focus on teaching and learning instead of behavior control. The students do a number of the Brain Gym exercises every day.

At first they thought there was a change happening in the community that was moving into the school, now they think it is the other way around. What is happening in the school is changing the community."

This is typical of the profound changes that Brain Gym can have. For more information on the various courses and locations, you can go to
