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!
