Nurturing Pathways

Nurturing Pathways is taking a temporary hiatus for the month of November. The pitter patter of little dancing feet is very quiet during Covid times and other matters need tending.

Monday Missive Levels

by Christine Roberts | Mar 02, 2020


Three levels in both the body and brain.  Low level movement stimulates the brain stem, the foundation for attention, self-regulation and bonding.  Middle level, like crawling and dinosaur walking, stimulates the midbrain, the seat of emotional well-being.  Lastly, high level stimulates the cortex where language and problem solving take place. 

So this week will be a whole body, whole brain work out and provide integration between all the levels as well.  I always marvel at how much developmental work gets done by dancing and having fun!
