Janice Fiore has been teaching Brain Gym® classes for over 20 years. This 16 hr experiential course is a unique program of physical activities that synchronizes body and mind to enhance learning and achievement for people of all ages and abilities. The foundational activities and methods of Brain Gym® are safe, easy and enjoyable, and they bring about rapid and often dramatic improvements in academics and daily life skills.
