Our nervous system is a vital underpinning to our daily movement and function and yet it remains the most elusive and least understood of the bodily systems. The nervous system is our information super highway that controls all the information that we take from our environment, and integrates it into meaningful functional movement. Through the manipulation of sensory input we can affect a change in the structural organization of the nervous system and thus how we move. In this way, the brain’s structure becomes the information that it receives. This workshop is based on the latest research on the brain and how it can adapt and change its structure in response to information. You will gain a basic understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system, as well as the system pathways responsible for both perceiving our environment and moving within our environment. An appreciation of the neurological underpinnings of movement will help your cueing become more powerful in order to affect the responses you want in your clients. You will also learn how to design exercises that better access the nervous system to facilitate improved motor control and awareness.
- Learn basic neurophysiology and how to link it to teaching movement
- Discover how movement works in the body according to its neurological underpinnings
- Find out how the brain functions and how it can adapt and change in response to information
