“I fell down a 15’ embankment on a summer hike. In the midst of the fall, I used what Wendy taught me in class. I credit this class for giving me information that I could use “in the moment” of the fall and I came out of it without serious injury.”

These classes are developed around individuals’ questions. For instance:
I had Covid-19, how can I release my congested lungs?
I keep falling over, how do I work on my vestibular sensory?
I have carpal tunnel syndrome in my wrists. How can I release pain through movement?
I need to make a decision – how does my body guide me through this process?
I am not sleeping. How can movement help me to find restful ease?
How does play help brain development?
- Infant Developmental Sequences (link to infant page)
Our bodies go through movement sequences that support our development from birth, to sitting up, to crawling, to standing, to walking, to running, and onward. These movement sequences are part of our DNA/genome. Understanding how to support your infant or your own movement patterns, will support not only motion, but also brain development from the low brain through the higher cortexes. All of your learning preferences and those of your infant such as choice-making affinities, problem solving, and relationship patterns come from these early infant developmental movement patterns.
How do I support my infant in rolling or sitting?
I have noticed my child moving primarily from the arms. How do I connect the legs and feet?
How does my infant learn how to navigate through space?
How does sensory play a role in infant development?
What are my infant patterns? How do these patterns effect my life today?
