Move Your Body For Health!
An Active Body is a Learning Body and doing some sort of exercise that you enjoy is important to your physical and mental health. So, let’s all get moving, every day!
Physical activity plays an important role in developing the brain and supporting important mental functions. Research shows that regular moderate exercise can increase the size of the hippocampus, an area of the brain involved with learning and memory. Exercise also helps release growth factors, chemicals in the brain that affect the growth and survival of new brain cells as well as blood vessels in the area. Not only that, but regular movement leads to improved motor skills (such as hand-eye co-ordination), better thinking and problem-solving, stronger attention skills and improved learning. Not surprisingly, these all combine to benefit school performance.
Body, Mind and Soul with Helen Doron
All Helen Doron programmes include fun, music and movement as an essential part of the methodology. Music and movement have been shown to improve children’s memory, cognitive development, learning skills and expressive ability, offering a fun, active, engaging multisensory experience for children. Studies show that movement and music together also enhance self-esteem, boosting the health of the mind, body and soul.
