Why it matters

The body is a messenger.

When we understand how the body physically experiences emotions we can...

Long term health

Better body awareness means kids seek medical attention sooner and make better long term health decisions.

Grow our creativity

Our body can impact our learning, memory and creativity. If we know how to work with it we can improve the things we create.

Emotional intelligence

Understanding body language helps us problem solve and it gives us an advantage when working with others.

Real time health

When we are busy we tend to get caught up in thoughts and can become overwhelmed. Body awareness gives us the skills to come back to center quickly.
