Awareness Through Movement® Classes Term 2
with Jenny D’Cruz
In term 2, we will continue with the theme from our first series, and consolidate learning.
As Julie Andrews sings, “Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start, when you read you begin with A-B-C, when you sing you begin with DO-RE-MI.”
When we move, we begin with exploration, stimulation and curiosity. We are integrating reflexes, developing head control, sensing feed-back from the ground, reaching, and turning. Gradually we learn movement patterns that become the do-re-mi for more complex movement patterns. These basic movement patterns for gait, squat, reaching and turning lead to walking, running, throwing, climbing and more.
This term we will continue to explore easier ways to squat, reach, turn and ambulate (at any level from a meander to a run, a slope to a mountain). If you’re wondering how this might apply to you think walking, hiking, skiing holidays, playing with children or grandchildren. When the ground is your friend, and you have many ways to get close to it and across it comfortably, the world may become your oyster again!
