5 - PROGRAM / SERVICE / ACTIVITY PURPOSES
The basic workshop for beginners includes brain balancing exercises for daily activities, in order to improve the quality of life and learning. The workshop applies the motto, "Movement is the gateway to learning", determined by Dr. Paul Dennison, the founder of the method. The method is based on inner coping and strengthening in the face of challenges in order to facilitate a better quality of life and to realize personal potential. The goal is to develop all the senses and abilities to function in an integrated manner, in order to absorb the existing reality, to understand it and to process it as best we can in our lives. The method is based on human movement theory – kinesthetics.
