Your Child’s Brain on Sing Song Yoga®
Educational researchers are finding a link between music and movement, and success in school. One researcher, Shirley Handy discusses the 3 M’s: music, movement and merriment.
The 3 M’s naturally increase the positive neurotransmitters and peptides in the brain, which are associated with memory, with new learning, and with the ability to pay attention. When the 3 M’s are combined in one activity it is especially brain-friendly which gives children a head start to learning.
Sing Song Yoga® specifically incorporates the 3 M’s.
