Beth Stoddard, MBA and Felecia Pease, MS EdAdm

This practical and fun workshop explained how Brain Gym® works. Beth Stoddard explained the three dimensions of intelligence that relate to three areas of the brain while specific movements for their integration were demonstrated and practiced. The session also explored the need for “safety and connection” as it relates to the ability to learn. There are many different scenarios for implementing Brain Gym® into the school day and many success stories to share. The co-presenter was Felecia Pease, a principal of two elementary schools, who described practical experiences using Brain Gym®.
