Did You Know?
The body is part of the brain! The spinal cord goes all the way down the back. The spinal cord is like the fiber optic cables for the internet. It is the passage-way, the pathway for the electrical impulses from the brain to be delivered to different parts of the body, and the way that feedback is delivered back to the brain.
When the spine is flexible, the mind is flexible.
When the body moves, stretches and bends, the mind does too! It is then possible to think of more solutions, more innovations – more connections, than could have ever been dreamt of without that movement.
I have experienced it firsthand over and over again (the idea that comes to me suddenly while walking outside or biking, the inspiration to solve a problem that I receive right after a yoga sequence, or the songs that I write in my mind while I am dancing!) But don’t take it only from me, there are countless studies on mind-body relationship now that point to similar results.
These results can help your camp staff work better together – and your campers express their best, while having fun!
