Ease for the entire family
Parents & Kids is based on the Alexander Technique and MKT.
The Alexander Technique is a unique method which enables you and your family to deal with:
habits of thinking, reacting and moving
emotional and physical changes
stress and anxiety
The Alexander Technique teaches the powerful capability of making consistent choices. When we - adults - remember that we always have a choice about how to react, it becomes easier to find solutions. Parenthood offers many opportunities to practice this. For example, how to deal with children's tantrum or to motivate your kids at school.
MKT, Marburg Concentration Training, teaches kids to be more present, mindful and self-confident when completing tasks like homework.
Coping with Pregnancy & Childbirth
The Alexander Technique gives pregnant women the fascinating opportunity to understand how their body changes and how to deal with these changes constructively. For example, the natural gain of weight causes in many women backpain unnecessarily. The change of shape and centre of gravity can be a great learning opportunity to better understand and improve body balance and posture. Learning to use the Alexander Technique has invaluable benefits:
Reduce and/or prevent backpain
Improve breathing and circulation
Raising kids is one of the most important and most wonderful journeys that parents will ever embark upon. Yet, it is also a nuisance at times.
How to make the process of educating children more cooperative and more fun?
Add more ease to daily activities like carrying, feeding, changing nappies. Thus avoiding backpain, tiredness and bad moods
Take a constructive approach to the conflicts that risk the calmness, hapiness and growth of your family life
Be more positive, firm and consistent in making decisions and choices
Manage time with a "slow down" attitude in order to achieve more
Foster understanding, communication and cooperation to strengthen the bond between parents & kids
Making children's development enduring
"Children are like cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression." Haim Ginott
Think once more about the quote above... Have you already recognised how much your kids copy you?
Copying is fundamental for their learning but would you want them to copy all your habits?
Children are keenly tuned in with the environment where they grow up. The relationship between parents & kids and the kind of habits that they acquire, have a decisive influence on children's personality. This determines your children's success in moving, think sports and musical instruments; learning, at school and later at university; working, how they progress in their career.
The Alexander Technique is an indispensable tool to children's physical, emotional and mental strength.
These are some of the skills which you learn at Parents & Kids using the Alexander Technique. A series of lessons teach a skill for life, self-confidence and vitality to the whole family: pregnant women, parents & kids.
