Topic for October 28th: From Baby to Biped: Exploring Developmental Movement
The human body is the most marvelous and versatile moving machine in the world. But do you know how it got this way, or the various things it is actually capable of doing? Neurodynamics is the study of how the body works in action: its anatomical design, operating systems, and the capacity for gaining greater awareness and control in action.
Join us for Neurodynamic Lunch Hour
as we explore how the human body works, how to use it more efficiently, and how to prevent everyday tensions and strains through education and awareness rather than recourse to drugs and treatment. Come partake of light refreshments, and learn how Neurodynamics can help your health!
