We are pleased to offer this wonderful DVD by Chava Shelhav, founder of Child Space. This inspiring one-hour set documents the most ambitiously organized application of the Feldenkrais Method with children ever undertaken. Shelhav describes her research project with schoolchildren ages 7 through 12, integrating Awareness Through Movement and Functional Integration in the classroom to influence the children's sensory, motor, emotional, and cognitive development. The group of children are observed over a six-month period.

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 how ingenious individual and group Feldenkrais exercises improve motor development and control.
