Brain Gym

Brain Gym






Using Brain Gym® to Reduce Stress and Facilitate Learning


For Teachers and SNA’s

Stress and anxiety limit learning. In this webinar you will learn some strategies and activities to help you and your students to become more relaxed and actively involved in productive and creative learning.

Padraig King BEd MA(Ed), is a former teacher with years of experience in classrooms, Learning Support and Resource, will present simple activities from Brain Gym along with other relevant information that you can use with your pupils in a whole class setting or in groups.

Stress automatically creates divisions in the brain as many areas try to take control of your thoughts, emotions actions and communication.  Mind chatter, stress and anxiety are the battle ground between these areas all trying to force the other areas into submission. Brain Gym activities may help to reunite the brain and to restore brain integration so that you respond appropriately rather than react from fear as the various specialist areas begin to cooperate and unite around a common goal.

When the whole brain is functioning with one voice harmoniously then the sum is far greater than the parts and the true potential of the student is unleashed. The activities take just a few minutes but ensure better concentration and greater participation.

Please note that this is a practical hands on workshop, taking place via a live zoom meeting.

Successful registrants will be emailed with a zoom code in advance of the webinar
