Embodied Learning

Sometimes you just know when things are going to happen. Learning is not only the job of the mind but also of the body. I believe that being physically active and in tune with our bodies allows us to become better learners. Sports have helped me with anticipation, visualisation, and concentration all key factors in learning and interpreting new concepts. A healthy body, and understanding that body, benefits and enhances a healthy mind.

Simply stated, embodied learning involves being attentive to the body and its experiences as a new way of knowing” (Freiler, 2008)
