Following on from last week’s video, Tara is demonstrating an exercise to reinforce the connections between the brain and the body. This particular movement helps to stimulate the part of the brain concerned with balance and movement. It reinforces the connections between the top and bottom, as well as the front and the back of the body. All you need is something like a beanbag or small cushion. In this example Tara is using an ice-pack. Have a look at the video and give it a go. Give your brain a break!
Movement is important for joint mobility, flexibility and strength but it is also crucial for our brain function.From the earliest stages of life, movement is our brain’s teacher. Movement helps us learn. It stimulates and creates neural connections in the brain which enables us to learn and process information.
Adults can also use movement to boost brain function! In this video Tara demonstrates some exercises that you can do at home to stimulate the left-right communication in your brain and get it working better!
