Children love to move. Developmental movements organize a child’s brain for learning and for emotional balance, along with building physical coordination and alignment. Children who skip early developmental movements may have more difficulty with behavior, reading and math. The good news is that movement can rewire the brain at any stage of life. Catherine Burns, Registered Somatic Movement Therapist, will discuss the role of movement in children’s development. Catherine supports childbearing women and young children, starting prenatally as a bodyworker and doula, lactation counselor and craniosacral therapist, and as a somatic development movement therapist (www.MamaBebe.org).
NOTE: Attendees are welcome to bring yoga mats, so we can observe the natural movements of the children, and Catherine can note movements which are developmental, and in what ways specific movements support development.
