What seems to be said suddenly has lived in the body for a long, long time. What moves us always comes from what is hidden.
Is there a major influence to your child’s thinking we don’t know about?
Are words not getting through to your child?
Are your kids climbing the walls?
“I’ll preach it until the day I die. If you are going to teach anything to improve school culture and student behavior teach them the Home Breath.”

Children listen with more than just with the ears, and think more than just with the brain.
Younger children feel through their bodies to listen and think. We all did at one time but are not aware of it. If you are not aware of something you can’t enhance it, or change it. The WTM program builds a bridge by creating experiences (with awareness) from the body to the brain.
The Bridge is a new orientation enhancing the biological nature of learning. The practice is not a tool, but a way of life designed to strengthen the way the body works with the brain.
Why Learn This…?
Why is this orientation of learning crucial for raising a child?
Children learn from the inside out as well as the outside in. They have an easier time feeling how sensations of the body are one with emotions and thoughts.The younger the nervous system, the easier it is to feel what is going on in the body. Reasoning, or learning from the outside, is not fully developed.
Who can these skills benefit?
Parents and teachers who are ready for a new approach that will enhance a child’s wellbeing.
How does this approach work?
The best way to answer this question is to think about the differences of this program versus other mindfulness programs. This program isn’t about learning from the brain; it is learning through a sixth sense, the way the brain learns from the body. Develop awareness of this sixth sense, and you will feel the physical sensation of human form as consciousness.
How would these activities help my children’s ability to learn math, language, and science skills?
Imagine, if in seconds, children discover from a place within themselves how to calm their emotions, focus their attention, and increase their ability to reason. Most importantly, when children feel their bodily sensations they understand how they need to learn.
They stay engaged, and learn how to become self-directed learners. Children learn a sense of their uniqueness. Usually, “a sense of self” isn’t discovered until after college. If they learn this as a child their own uniqueness improves as they age.
Why work with younger children?
The stages of child development set up the trajectory of a child’s life. Teach awareness of how they develop, and their heart opens to the courageous innocence that sustains life. Children learn not just from their brains or behavior. What is missing in the understanding of learning is the awareness of the bridge from the body to the brain. Just develop the brain, and it overshadows the resilience of a child’s well-being.
Wellness Through Movement® is a new approach to education that brings together contemporary sciences of cognition and child development with the Feldenkrais Method®. The method uses a type of movement that changes everything in a child’s life. It changes how children handle life’s challenges, how they learn, and the way they move through life. READ MORE…
