“The Kids Are Alright!”
Positive Postural Playtime for Families
You can nurture, preserve and strengthen the lovely natural grace of your children’s movement before conditions of modern life start to disturb it. No more cries of “Sit up straight!” Learn some simple and positive ways to speak to you children about “poising” rather than “straightening up”, encouraging them to “balance” rather than to “hold still”, and to “float up” rather than “settle down”. We will share games and stories that will keep your little ones fascinated while they discover their own Anti-Gravity Superpower! Let their beautiful spiraling movement be a gentle reminder of your own innate upward evolution.
0 to 2 Year Olds
Learn ways of holding your baby and playing with your toddler that will keep their postural reflexes active and well integrated during their daily play.
3 to 5 Year Olds
Stories and fun games for your children to enjoy consciously playing with their poise and challenging their balancing reflexes. Parents can try, too!
6 to 8 Year Olds
Engage the active imagination of this age group with games that give valuable lessons about their amazing ability to consciously chose between “crunching” or “floating,” “hardening” or “softening”, “holding” or “releasing” themselves into light and effortless buoyancy. Will they “tighten their reins” or “let their necks be free”? The choice is completely theirs!
9 to 11 Year Olds
The older child will relish this adventure of scientific info and discovery combined with games. They will learn to be successful at turning off their big overreactions to stimuli and get heaps of praise for doing nothing at all, tricking their “startle pattern,” and keeping their cool. What kid doesn’t enjoy saying “No!” You can practice keeping your cool, too, in the Championship Parent-Kid Stimulus-Response Challenge!
