In this video Chava Shelhav describes her research project with schoolchildren ages 7 - 12, integrating Awareness Through Movement and Functional Integration in the classroom.

Moving, sensing, thinking, and feeling are the key elements that lead to improved learning and social development. As you watch this video, you will learn to see the relationship between balance issues and learning disabilities, how awareness emerges from physical action, and ingenious individual and group Feldenkrais exercises improve motor development and control.
