Testimonials

“This course is a learning by doing experience. The atmosphere was open and safe––conducive to learning. Movement-based learning uses movement of the body to effect changes in the brain. It is a tool that once learned, is easy to integrate into your work as a Physical Therapist (PT) as well as your home life. It is a great adjunct to all other tools that we use as a PT.”

“My awareness of others and the ‘space’ in which they grow has been keenly awakened. I loved your [Cece] teaching style. Even though there were close to twenty of us ladies in the room, I felt that you were speaking only with me! What a gift God has given you!”

“Cece teaches movements that energize learning. She introduces Bal-a-vis-x and demonstrates how to apply the theory of movement-based learning by bringing children into the workshop so we can observe her using it with them. The information and techniques are definitely applicable to Occupational Therapy (OT) and compliments and parallels our practices.”

“The course that Cece shares far exceeded my expectations and objectives. I chose this course for specific reasons, and gained so much more! Every component of the class was selected and timed and the living structure that we can then pass along is invaluable. Cece, there is no doubt that you will always continue to grow and learn and then share. Your teaching and coaching style is exceptional as you reach our inner beings and potential. I loved being the receiver of such wisdom, Thank you so very much!”

“Cece has an ability to work a room with purpose. As I watched her and participated in this class I learned not only the activities from Brain Gym® and how/when to use them––I also became calmer within myself. Thank you Cece, from the bottom of my heart, for pausing long enough to touch, accept and teach my son.”

“This course offers the most vital information and tools for living in our own body with comfort and ease of learning and functioning. I noticed so many positive changes in myself during this course that I know will bleed over into my professional (and personal) life. I am more relaxed; able to formulate and receive information; more playful; and I’m feeling more equipped to work with special needs children.”

“Cece is kind, well-qualified and demonstrated the value of her message, i.e. as we are more grounded and centered in ourselves we are then able to reach out to others and participate and assist in their learning. I’ve learned many new skills/strategies and developed confidence in my own instincts. This class is very versatile for all my ages/abilities—-even for self-improvement—-everyone can benefit."

“After taking this course, my eyes are open wider and I can assist the children and explore their potential/ possibilities so they can reach their greatest reality. This course gently invites you to enhance learning and function within the classroom by using natural body movements. This course was Cece’s book, I Am the Child coming alive…and so much more. I am so eager to absorb all the new material from her new book, Movement Based Learning for Children of All Abilities”
