How I Spent My Weekend
Bal, a, vis, what? Exactly what I said when I signed up for the 20 hour training! So, what the heck is Bal-A-Vis-X? First of all it's pronounced bal-a-viz-ex. Now, it is rhythmic, balance, auditory, vision exercises for brain/body integration.
Bal-A-Vis-X is a series of some 300 exercises, most of which are done with sand-filled bags and/or racquetballs, often while standing on a Bal-A-Vis-X balance board. Requiring multiple thousands of mid-line crossings in three dimensions, these exercises are steadily rhythmic, with a pronounced auditory foundation, executed at a pace that naturally results from proper physical techniques. Bal-A-Vis-X enables the whole mind-body system to experience the symmetrical flow of a pendulum.
Who can benefit from these excercises? You, a struggling student, a student with ADHD, a person who is on the Autism Spectrum, a person who suffered a stroke, hip replacement, Parkinson's, a Paraplegic, anyone. I saw it with my own eyes.
Below is a short video clip of the program.
This training is for teachers, parents, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists and others who are interested in helping others become successful. Bill Hubert, a former teacher, created the program and conducts trainings all over the world. If this sounds at all intriguing, I encourage you to find one of those training sites and attend. You too will be amazed.
