A Natural Approach for Learning Disabilities

I recently attended a very interesting workshop on Brain Gym.  This taught me more about how movement can activate the brain with more cerebral fluid.  This brain fluid is necessary to think, stay awake, and be attentive.  Yoga includes many Brain Gym like exercises, which is why yoga is also helpful for children with ADHD and Executive  Functioning Disorders to name just a few learning disabilities.  In simple terms  inactivity is linked to learning disabilities according to Carla Hannaford, PhD.  Click here to see a interview of Dr Hannaford on Channel 4 News.
