MR M. ENOS (PRINCIPAL)

ASSUMPTION CONVENT PRIMARY SCHOOL, PRETORIA NORTH


As a school Principal, one of my main objectives is to have a happy school with happy and motivated learners, teachers and parents. This is very often a daunting task as the frustrations faced by teachers on a daily basis seem to be ever increasing, and although the children sitting in front of our teachers are often some of the biggest reasons for teachers to experience high stress levels, these very same children also face many challenges themselves which we, as adults, cannot always understand. For this very reason, the Mind Moves programme appealed to me when I first became aware of it, because I saw in it a tool (many tools actually), with which both teachers and learners, and even parents for that matter, could be helped in a very new and innovating way. After explaining the basic concept to the owners of the School, it was an obvious choice to give the go-ahead for two of our most dedicated teachers to take the training. We decided to make this opportunity available to more than one teacher, as we felt that it would be good if there were two people who could support one another, bounce ideas off one another and also work together as a team in the school to extend training to all the other teachers in the school. The idea is to establish Assumption Convent as the Mind Moves core in the area and gradually circle out to include the wider community. After listening to Dr De Jager addressing our teachers, seeing the level of interest her talk provoked among all teachers (especially on a Friday afternoon) and observing the excitement that flamed up when the incredible potential of Mind Moves became clear to all, I am even more convinced that exciting times lie ahead for our school and community. Thank you to the Mind Moves Institute and especially Dr MelodieDe Jager for making this opportunity available to us.

What makes me excited about becoming an Advanced Mind Moves Instructor  is to experience that there is hope to develop the hidden potential of learners and to overcome their learning barriers.  It makes me excited to know that that we can extend their “limitations” and strengthen their abilities.  In the whole journey of development of a child, I feel that the parents are often the ones most aware of their children’s barriers.  They take the most punches in the process of development of their children.  Being able to give them, the parents, new hope, is priceless. The growth that I have experienced within myself and my own life since Mind Moves came into my life gives me high expectation of what can be reached.

JULIETTE SHARKIE

ADVANCED MIND MOVES INSTRUCTOR


I’m excited to be able to work with children, parents and teachers to use Mind Moves ® to overcome barriers to learning. By using movement as medicine to mimic reflexes that are aberrant and in turn, develop a child as a whole. To enable a child to be fully functional and have the ability to use their whole brain in every activity that they do in school and at home, and with well-established dominance throughout their body and therefor be ready to learn at any time, excites me. I want to help a child take their current ‘test’ circumstances and turn it into their 'testimony' and be able to learn and ‘do school’. Additionally, to help parents and teachers, to know that there is so much more that they can do to help the little bodies that they come across each day. Because a barrier is not the end, it’s the start of a Mind Moves Program.

CARMEN HAWKESLEY

GEVORDERDE MIND MOVES INSTRUKTEUR | ONDERWYSERES


As Gevorderde Mind Moves Instrukteur, sal ek vir die eerste keer  as onderwyseres, WERKLIK  die geleentheid kry om die leemtes wat ek kan raaksien in leerders, op ‘n doeltreffende manier te assesseer en om individuele aandag te kan bied ten einde die lewe vir leerders in hul akademiese, emosionele en sosiale ontwikkeling te vergemaklik. Ek kry die geleentheid om myself, asook die ouers, onderwysers, voogde, terapeute ens. toe te rus om meer leerders se lewens te raak en mismoedige kliënte te bemoedig om makliker struikelblokke te kan oorkom.

HELEN PIENAAR

ADVANCED MIND MOVES INSTRUCTOR | PSYCHOLOGIST


I became a psychologist because I believe I have the ability to assist people in reaching their full potential by guiding them to their desired change.  Mind Moves provides me with a completely different view on reasons why people, especially children, can have stumbling blocks to hinder the path to reaching full potential.  Through using Mind Moves I can hopefully assist in a different way, being well aware of the fact that I have to keep psychology and Mind Moves as 2 separate entities.

YVONNE PILBEAM

EDUCATOR


I am excited about becoming an Advanced Mind Moves Instructor, as I often see parents who seem to have lost hope in ever finding a viable solution to helping their child achieve success and make age appropriate progress. By acknowledging their hopes and dreams for the future, as an accredited Advanced Mind Moves Instructor, I would be able to offer encouragement and hope to parents who often feel that there is ‘something wrong with their child’. By explaining developmental delays and their impact on learning, I will be able to guide the parents into seeing that although their child is struggling at this point in time, they may well be able to achieve success, purely by consistently following a fun activity-based programme. By following Nature and obeying the natural order of progression, a child’s reflexes will be guided into making the progress that was laid down in their DNA.

CARIEN OPPERMAN

ADVANCED MIND MOVES INSTRUCTOR | EDUCATOR


I love the fact that, for once in my career as a teacher, there is not only explanations, but also solutions to learning barriers.  That there are actually ways to help learners who are struggling academically and socially.  I love the fact that even a small difference in their behaviour and understanding is such a big deal for myself, the parents and the learner.  I am excited to be able to make a difference, even if its small.

LAUREN SMYTHE

ADVANCED MIND MOVES INSTRUCTOR


I am so excited to be able to assist parents and children who are so frustrated and feel as if their child is under-performing or else who have been given a list of problems a mile long. I am so excited as I feel Mind Moves gives people hope, empowers them to become actively involved in working with their children and avoids the stigma of labels. Mind Moves make so much sense, is so simple to implement I am excited as, at the moment, the educational world is clearly getting it wrong. More and more children are not coping academically, there is more academic pressure and people are busier. Mind Moves provides a small scope in order to make a direct, tangible difference in people’s lives on impacts on their relationships.

CLIFF OLIVIER

ADVANCED MIND MOVES INSTRUCTOR


I am excited by Mind Moves as it sets children free to achieve their potential.  The best is to see the excitement in their eyes when they realise that there is improvement and the negative labels they have been carrying are busy falling off.  I am also so excited as I see how fast these exercises work.  You do not have to wait too long to see an improvement.

BRIDGET MINNIE

ADVANCED MIND MOVES INSTRUCTOR


Mind Moves has answered the question that I have been searching for, WHY do children experience such difficulties in the classroom. Mind Moves gives children and parents hope for improvement, unlocking their potential to learn which has been hindered by ‘faulty mechanics’. The Mind Dynamix® side of the being an AMMI, allows me to help children understand who they are, why they find some things challenging and why some things are so easy for them. It can help children create coping strategies to address their weaknesses, as well as encourage them to embrace their strengths which may not necessarily be acknowledged in the classroom. Mind Dynamix not only provides this enlightenment for the children, but for their parents and teachers as well.

LIZELLE VAN NIEKERK

ADVANCED MIND MOVES INSTRUCTOR | EDUCATOR


I’ve been searching for an opportunity to fill this “hole” in my career….. I believe that Mind Moves is exactly that!  What I’ve seen, heard, experienced and learned in the training week made me VERY excited about becoming an instructor.  Coming from a teaching background, I’ve seen what can be done to change the classroom situation – for the child as well as the teacher.  I am very excited about what can be achieved with Mind Moves.

SUMAYYA BULBULIA

ADVANCED MIND MOVES INSTRUCTOR | EDUCATOR


The training session was a really stimulating, empowering, informative and a good learning experience for me. The group was very interactive and we had a really good relationship with each other. The practical demonstration with the client gave me a lot of insight into how I could improve on my case studies. It was really beneficial for me to experience Melodie’s expertise and her approach to a client. It was a lot of hard work and early mornings but an amazing experience.

SANDRA SMIT

GEVORDERDE MIND MOVES INSTRUKTEUR | ONDERWYSERES


Die opleiding was ongelooflik. Mens leer soveel van jouself in 'n kort tydjie. Jy besef tussendeur die opleiding dat jy jouself en ander met baie meer begrip en liefde moet hanteer, want almal doen die beste wat hulle kan. Die opleiding is deur en deur die moeite werd en ten spyte van die intensiteit, sal ek dit in 'n oogwink weer doen. Die kinders waarmee ek al gewerk het, is soveel rustiger en van hulle het meer selfvertroue.

LINA METHI

ADVANCED MIND MOVES INSTRUCTOR | EDUCATOR


The training was excellent.  I now see barriers to learning through a different lens.  The "strategies" used to address barriers are simple, realistic and natural. The course structure is so comprehensive and understandable and it helped me to find myself and to understand others better. It gave me pleasure to notice some improvement with learners in my case studies. One of the parents reported that after doing the Mind Moves for 2 months her child can now complete Legos on his own without being distracted and is able to pack away his toys without being told. He is now showing some sense of responsibility, which he did not have before the Mind Moves programme. The other parent texted me with excitement to say her child drew a person for the first time. It gave me pleasure to receive such feedback. My thanks go to Dr Melodie de Jager for giving me an opportunity of a lifetime. I will always cherish this and implement the skills in supporting learners experiencing barriers to learning. The course is really worth the while and of course worth the money.

LORRAINE VAN NIEKERK

The AMMI training is challenging on an intellectual and emotional level. I have never before grown so much within such a short period. During my practical the most amazing result I experienced was working with a boy on focus and solving his bed-wetting problem - without even being aware of it!

MAXIE JANSE VAN RENSBURG

ADVANCED MIND MOVES INSTRUCTOR | EDUCATOR


Hmmm, to give feedback on our training, in one paragraph? Quite a difficult job - so much to say. Let’s start by describing it in one word: fantamagories! For the English-speaking, it means awesome, marvelous, a mind-blowing, once-in-a-lifetime experience! My life would just not be the same without my Mind Moves training. I feel like a new world has opened up for me - a teacher with 20 years’ experience. The Mind Moves training-team comprises people with a passion for what they do, and it rubs off. Not an easy course, but all the knowledge you gain, make the hard work and time spent studying and researching, definitely worthwhile! Then of course, what Mind Moves does for learners following the programme, is indescribable: you have to live, see and feel it for yourself...

LORAINE KOTZE

ATTENDED WORKSHOP PRESENTED BY HANLIE VAN ZYL


Should have had this workshop long ago. This should be part of Teacher's training! I never felt that I knew so little and had so little time to apply everything I have learnt, as after these workshops. These workshops should be compulsory for ALL teachers. 'A numb bum makes kids dumb'. Get them moving! Mind Moves should be an integrated part of all Junior Primary teaching moments - counting, spelling, etc. I wish I could have my teaching career over.  

KEITH CASTLE

ATTENDED WORKSHOP PRESENTED BY MICHAELA DE GIER


This is all extremely valuable information that all parents, teachers and caregivers should be aware of.  (I've learned about) the importance of seemingly insignificant movements on overall neural development. Things we never gave a second thought when we were growing up were so vital to our future development and now those same things are scarce or even missing in our modern, technological age. Time to switch off the computer and go outside and play!

TRICIA HUME

ATTENDED WORKSHOP PRESENTED BY MICHAELA DE GIER


I have thoroughly enjoyed learning about children from a different perspective and found the information given so insightful and meaningful in order for me as an educator to better understand the children that are put into my care for a year of their lives. Thank you.

SIMA DIAR

ATTENDED WORKSHOP PRESENTED BY ZHARINA WAJOODEEN


Practical yet doable activities that can be done with children and adults to assist with spelling. The Facilitator was excellent - very gentle and very giving of her time and knowledge. There was a very open and sharing atmosphere that was created. The workshop was very interactive and demonstrated the effects of the exercise, so one leaves with the conviction that it works.

RIA SWIEGERS

WERKSWINKEL BYGEWOON WAT AANGEBIED IS DEUR CORNÉ KOTZE


Mind Moves maak definitief 'n reuse verskil. Gr.R - leerders wat aan die begin van die jaar glad nie hulle middellyn kon kruis nie, kan dit nou doen. Verder geniet hulle die bewegings... Dis ook vir hulle baie lekker as hulle 'n beurt kry om (vir die klas) te kan tel en so assesseer ons sommer of hulle kan tel. As ons die dag dalk nie kon Mind Moves doen nie, is die klomp sommer baie woelig en is dit moeilik om met hulle huis (klas) te hou.

IRENE REID

ATTENDED WORKSHOP PRESENTED BY MICHAELA DE GIER


A very insightful course that challenges one to re-examine not only their teaching and learning but their relationships and how they relate to others in terms of PQ, EQ and IQ. I will be working towards becoming a trainer. The  most valuable insight was linking my existing knowledge of child development and learning & teaching pedagogy to a holistic framework of brain development (neuroscience) and seeing how everything ties together to produce a happy learner, learning well as an individual.

ELREDY HAWABES

ATTENDED WORKSHOPS PRESENTED BY MARIETJIE POGGENPOEL


I'm happy for attending this workshop -  it teaches me few things I didn't know about, or what to do, to help a child.  I feel great working with a kid and knowing that I'm the reason for that kid's improvement. This gives me more courage to do my best to help him improve. I'm looking forward to attend upcoming workshops too to learn more but not only for myself but for him too.

FRANCES LOADER

ATTENDED WORKSHOP PRESENTED BY MICHAELA DE GIER


As an educator I understand why skill in this area (legible handwriting)  is so important, and I now better understand how to prepare my learners for writing and doing so well. I gained valuable insight into how children experience challenges in this area and how, with the correct exercises we may begin to MEND and BEND within the classroom context.

Fantastiese inligting. Wens ek het alles geweet 7 jaar gelede. Baie, baie dankie - ek was voorwaar ook 'n mamma wat my 3 kinders kognitief gedruk het ipv om groot otories en gravitasie in plek te stel. Nou sukkel ek met lae spiertonus, swak potloodgreep en ruimtelike oriëntasie met my kinders.

CHERRYL KNOETZE

These sessions have been the most worthwhile activity I have taken part in for a long time. It has given me insight and inspiration in many aspects. I am very grateful. Thank you for providing an opportunity to learn more. It has been very valuable.

BUSISIWE VALOYI

ATTENDED WORKSHOP PRESENTED BY RIKA TERBLANCHE


I now know that anyone has an ability to learn and understand.  As a teacher and a mother I learnt that I should understand my students and children and get to know their backgrounds of development and what they are about, in order to be able to teach them or help them. The human body is designed to move, so exercises are important, they help to maintain concentration, better focus and help with muscle developments. I now know that there are dominance and learning styles - some people prefer to see what is being demonstrated, some just want to hear what is being said and some need to touch what is being demonstrated;  and as a teacher I should learn to accommodate those who want to see, touch and hear in my teaching.

CECILIA NGUNOVANDU

ATTENDED WORKSHOP PRESENTED BY HANLIE VAN ZYL


Getting to know about Mind Moves really changed my whole attitude about children and how/ why the do certain things. I make sure that I implement what I have learnt during this period with the institute and I see wonders.

KAREN COETZER

WERKSWINKELDEELNEMER


Ons maak soms gevolgtrekkings oor 'n kind met leerprobleme, maar dikwels is die probleem baie dieper. Die werkswinkels laat my net weer besef hoe kompleks en wonderlik die mens regtig is. 'n Mens moet nooit ooit dink daar is nie 'n oplossing vir 'n leerprobleem nie. Die werkswinkels motiveer my regtig om elke leerprobleem te sien as 'n uitdaging en nie as 'n struikelblok nie.

NIKIWE MODISE

ATTENDED WORKSHOPS PRESENTED BY JENNY-LEE SMITH


Thank you for these workshops - they are fruitful and encourage teachers to give their best. I have learned how to differentiate between children of the same age,  who are well developed and those who are not developed;  the importance of repetition when teaching them; and the love that you must give to each child and the patience that you must have.

MARIEZANNE LOMBAARD

WERKSWINKEL BYGEWOON WAT AANGEBIED IS DEUR IGNA DU PLESSIS


Die aanbieding was baie goed!! Dis op 'n maklike, eenvoudige manier aangebied, sodat dit verstaanbaar is. Selfs die ervaring wat jy beleef saam met die werkswinkel laat jou vinnig besef hoe daardie kind/persoon moet voel, ons is geneig om dit nie raak te sien nie.

MARIANNE PRINSLOO

ATTENDED WORKSHOP PRESENTED BY HANLIE VAN ZYL


This workshop opened up another field of interest for me. I will be able to use it to help learners with learning difficulties as well as other learners. I gained a better understanding of what Mind Moves is all about.

MARLINI PILLAY

ATTENDED WORKSHOP PRESENTED BY MICHAELA DE GIER


As a teacher, the workshops have helped me to better understand kids in my class who struggle to concentrate. I am now able to see the bigger picture of learning and how the optimum integration of the senses, the brain and the muscles is critical to learning.

MILANIE VENTER

Corné is 'n ongelooflike fasiliteerder - sy ondersteun ongelooflik en verduidelik tot mens verstaan. Haar passie maak mens lus vir nog meer kursusse. Ek kon nie wag om dit met my eie kinders te toets nie.  Hoe waardevol is alles wat sy en Mind Moves tot ons lewens gevoeg het. Die waardevolste insig tydens die werkswinkels was die integrasie van verskillende vlakke en hoe alles op die uiteinde bymekaar uitkom. Om die agterstande te kan identifiseer en dit nie as stoutigheid af te maak nie, ook om 'n verskil in die kind se gedrag te sien wanneer Mind Moves gedoen word. Die hele kursus is WOW.

CORLIA VORSTER

ATTENDED WORKSHOPS PRESENTED BY DR MELODIE DE JAGER


It's wonderful to be part of the Mind Moves "community". Having access to information through e-mails and being informed of more workshops is fabulous! I also like the academic challenge, without having to invest huge amounts of time studying. Everything is relevant and practical!

ESTELLE VAN DER WALT

WERKSWINKELDEELNEMER


MIND MOVES het vir my n ander wereld oopgemaak ! Ek is van mening dat elke onderwyser blootstelling hieraan moet kry om 'n verskil te kan maak in kindertjies se lewens. Dankie vir die geleentheid. Ek werk elke dag met Gr R kindertjies en dit was vir my 'n ongelooflike ervaring om die leerinhoud van Mind Moves met die praktyk te integreer. Die Mind Moves oefeninge is vir my baie waardevol by die kleintjies en die inhoud rondom leerblokkasies gee my insig en beter begrip hoe om elke kind te hanteer. Die bloudruk profiele het my ook baie geïnteresseer en ek het selfs sover gegaan om my klas daarvolgens te skuif en aan te pas.

VERONA BURGER

WERKSWINKEL BYGEWOON WAT AANGEBIED IS DEUR IGNA DU PLESSIS


Ek kan net dankie sê vir die goeie standaard van aanbieding. Alles wat ons geleer het is iets wat ons kan gebruik met ons eie kinders en ook leerders in die klas. Die hele kursus was in my opinie uitstekend, ek het reeds boeke van mind moves gelees, maar die kursus het my net gehelp om alles beter te verstaan. My gunsteling gedeelte was die gedeelte van Neuro-agterstande.  

MARNA MYBURG

WERKSWINKEL BYGEWOON WAT AANGEBIED IS DEUR IGNA DU PLESSIS


Ek besef nou hoekom ek soms optree soos ek optree, maar ook hoekom ander mense optree soos hulle doen. Die oefeninge help my en my kinders baie. Ek wens ek het lankal hiervan te hore gekom, dan het ek verseker makliker groot gemaak aan my kinders, gelukkig is hulle nog redelik klein en kan ek van nou af met hierdie kennis meer vir hulle  en vir my doen en vir hulle die lewe makliker maak.

HAZEL JEANNE SMITH

After 20 years after teaching , I now know why some children are the way they are . It all makes sense now.  Practical ideas were given to us.  

YVETTE MALAN

WERKSWINKELDEELNEMER


Puik, puik! Hierdie kursuse moet verpligtend gemaak word vir onderwysers en vir swanger mammas. Ek kan net nie genoeg kry van Mind Moves nie. Vir die eerste maal verstaan ek werklik waaroor ons samestelling gaan.

The workshop was well planned and organised. The content was amazing,  I've learnt so much and can't wait to disseminate the knowledge and understanding gained.

MRS R M SALOOJEE

FOCUS WEEK WORKSHOP ATTENDEE


Your workshop I attended during the "Focus week,' at Turffontein during the week of GPEDU training proved extremely insightful and valuable. I learnt that the mind of the impressionable child/learner is a powerful force to be reckoned with. The information and the manner it was explained to us, made me as an Educator realise that I have to see little budding learners differently. They are ours to mold in such a way that they become skillful contenders of society by means of using their God given senses and intuition to control their minds and the wonderful organ the brain. I learnt that focusing solely on the academics is not the ultimate goal. Children are the most important invention of Almighty God and all they need is the Adults to guide and motivate them with the best resources available and that is the innate human body itself. I would hope that workshops such as these become "Road shows,' at every school, countrywide that can afford and accord the opportunity, to and from your organisation. Thank you once again for according me the opportunity to change my mundane way of thinking and implementing in the classroom. I'm going to do things differently so that my special learners derive maximum benefit from my new - found knowledge. Yours in Education and kind regards. Mrs R. M. Saloojee - a lifelong learner and "it's never too late," participant

Hierdie Mind Moves Werkswinkels behoort deur die Onderwys Departement verpligtend gemaak  te word vir alle onderwysers. Dit gee jou 'n beter begrip van die kinders se gedrag en 'n goeie geheelbeeld van die mens.

SALLY WIGGILL

WORKSHOP ATTENDEE


The most valuable insight I gained from the workshops is that there is light at the end of the tunnel for teachers who deal with a vast array of learning styles, difficulties etc. I am using the Mind Moves in my class and am looking forward to zoning in on specifics with the children I teach and to sharing this information with the parents so that they too can implement the exercises at home. I found the information on dominance fascinating. Parents should do a course on this even before their babies are born!

PARENT


I am very happy I was introduced to Bridge.  We had only 2 sessions so far but I have seen drastic change in my child's attitude towards school and he has gained self confidence. He is very keen on doing his exercises and enjoys them. He is  coming out of his shell. He was very shy but I have seen improvement as he is more outspoken and confident and does not doubt himself.  I would definitely recommend Mind Moves to family and friends. I have seen the difference in my child and I am so happy. I wish I could have brought him to Bridget sooner instead of taking him to other expensive assessments that did no good at all for my child.

OUER


My seuntjie is 6. Ons het na Igna gegaan vir assessering. Sy vordering op kleuterskool was van so aard dat dit gelyk het of hy kognitief 2 jaar agter  sy maats is ....  Hy het ook tekens getoon van ADHD.... Hy was konstant iewers anders... Jou bitter min in die oë gekyk. Ons het in Augustus na Igna gegaan vir evaluasie en ons het met die tuisprogram begin.  Na 6 weke van oefeninge doen  (dit was die 3de kwartaal se einde) het sy skoolassessering gestyg met 'n volle 40 persent. Ek sien weekliks die verskil in my kind se ontwikkeling en die selfvertroue wat hy begin bou in homself en sy omgewing. Hy het ook emosioneel vreeslik gegroei. Dit is harde werk om konstant elke dag en aand die oefeninge te doen, maar as jy en jou kind eers dit as roetine begin doen, smag hulle daarna en so raak dit makliker en die vrugte wat jy en jou kind pluk maak dit die moeite werd. Jou kind is jou grootste belegging. Baie dankie Igna en Mind Moves - jul maak 'n radikale verskil in ons lewens

OUER


My dogtertjie is (vir Studiefiksheid) ge-evalueer en daar is bepaal presies hoe haar brein funksioneer, asook watter tegnieke sy moet gebruik om optimaal te kan leer. Sy het in Januarie 2019 met die Studiefiksheidskursus begin. Met behulp van die kursus kon sy baie goed vir haar toetsreeks voorberei. Sy het die tegnieke wat ideaal is vir haar tipe breinfunksionaliteit, gebruik. Die toetsreeks was nogal stressvol, maar die ontspannings & fokus oefeninge het baie gehelp. My dogtertjie se Rapport uitslae was ver bo verwagting. A.g.v. haar akademiese prestasie het sy onder die Top 10 leerders in Graad 4 geëindig. Hierdie resultaat is bereik, slegs deur harde werk & die toepassing van die Studiefiksheidstegnieke. Ek is baie dankbaar vir al Lente Lotter & die Mind Moves Studiefiksheidsprogram, se hulp. Ek sal die Mind Moves & die Studiefiksheidskursus vir enige iemand aanbeveel.    

PARENT


Mind Moves is a very practical, economical and easy to follow treatment which doesn't involve medication. That to me is what's so amazing. Simple, logical, easy exercises with remarkable results. Look forward to seeing improvement. Thank you Renée.

OUER


Jinne, ek kan nie beskryf hoe het die Mind Moves my kind verbeter nie. Ek kan nie wag vir die toetsuitslae die kwartaal. As ek kon kies sal ek my kind sommer die heel jaar by haar laat vat vir klasse. Dankie Petro Nel.

PARENT


I will recommend Mind Moves to anyone because as Olga was busy assessing my son, I discovered more problems that I was not aware of. It will be appreciated if the school can continue having the Mind Moves to assist the generation to come.

PARENT


The session was very interesting and I learnt a lot from experience.With regular Mind Moves exercises, it is guaranteed to improve mental and physical abilities. Thank you Natasha.

OUER


Ek sal definitief die Studiefiksheid aanbeveel. My  kind het die kursus (aangebied deur Michelle) vreeslik geniet. Ek mag nooit 5 minute te vroeg haar kom haal het nie. Dit was vir haar vreeslik lekker om te gaan. Sy het baie van die oefeninge en speletjies gehou al het sy daardeur geleer. Ek neem wel waar dat sy vinniger leer en opsom, waar dit in die verlede vir haar baie tyd geneem het. En dat sy minder stress voordat sy 'n vraestel skryf .

PARENT


I will recommend Mind Moves to everyone that I know. I wish schools can put this into their classes. If creche's can also do these activities daily it will benefit kids greatly from a young age. I think that Mind Moves give hope and make kids feel loved and wanted. My son feels so understood after many years. Since going to see Michaela I am now looking at my son through new eyes because I know he's going to be OK and a happy boy!

OUER


My kind is meer waaghalsig, toegewyd en selfversekerd. Beter geheue.

OUER


Ek dink my kind is meer bewus dat daar goed is waaraan hy kan werk. Hy is selfs gemotiveerd om die oefeninge te doen en geniet dit (behalwe musiek dirigeer). Oor die algemeen lyk hy of hy meer op sy gemak is om met mense te praat en gewillig om deel te neem in gesprekke. Hy groei vinnig en ek dink die oefeninge help hom om te weet hoe om by sy lyf aan te pas.  Dankie Marlize.

PARENT


My child has increased confidence in her school work, especially in reading and making study notes. Her self-confidence and ability to execute academic tasks have improved significantly. Thank you Marina.

ONDERWYSERES


Ek gebruik Mind Moves oefeninge in my klaskamer soos voorgestel deur Marietjie vir die afgelope 4 jaar. Die resultate is verstommend en ek  moedig gedurig my ouers aan om saam met hul kinders die oefeninge tuis te doen.

OUER


Die ervaring help my om my kind beter te verstaan. Om my benadering aan te pas sodat hy selfvertroud instruksie kan uitvoer met sukses. Hy  gesels meer openlik en gee graag terugvoering.  Dankie Ancelia.

PARENT


I am amazed at how Lizelle was able to pinpoint my child's weaknesses and strengths in just one session. How the body tells us what we cannot express in any other way. I love that we have exercises that can help and that they are easily found on YouTube to ensure we are doing it correctly.

PARENT


I found the testing techniques VERY interesting. The more I find out about Mind Moves the more I realise that it is an invaluable tool for our ever-evolving path of self-discovery & self-understanding. The world today is in such a 'diagnosis' frenzy that everything and anyone that is slightly different gets labelled. Often that label is negative or just plain incorrect, and usually some form of medication (sometimes unnecessary) accompanies the diagnosis. Mind Moves is so important in helping to give kids and adults a gentle push, to be where they should be in their development, to create a balance in the central nervous system and to isolate specific areas that one would like to work on i.e. improve public speaking, learn to calm the self before responding to a situation, staying focused while studying etc. I am really enjoying all the info & the booster sessions! Thank you Lisa Bezuidenhout.

PARENT


I am really glad that my son's class teacher told me about Mind Moves because I already see few changes with my son. Thank you so much Jenny-Lee.

OUER


Ek is baie beïndruk met Mind Moves en sal dit beslis by die skool aanbeveel wanneer ek navrae kry van ouers wat hulp soek vir hul kinders. Ek is ongelooflik beïndruk met die hulp wat ek ontvang het. Me Elana Steyn was baie professioneel en het my en vir my dogter op ons gemak laat voel. My kind is baie postief en sien daarna uit om die program te volg. Nogmaals baie dankie!!!

LEARNER


I attended sessions with Chantal. They are life-changing sessions that changed my view and approach in dealing with stress. It taught me how to take out stress and how to be more alert in everything I do. Most of all it improved my handwriting which I find fantastic and I am really enjoying my new handwriting. Thank you Mind Moves for your initiative in improving the lives of people. God bless you.

OUER


Dis verseker 'n moet vir enige mamma/pappa om hul kleinding te help ontwikkel tot haar/sy volle potensiaal! Ons wil graag vir Cornè bedank vir haar ongelooflike omgee en die manier waarop sy die kinders en ouers help! Cornè het soveel passie vir Mind Moves en glo in dit wat sy vir ons gee! Dit is ons voorreg om by haar te kon wees om ons twee seuns te help ontwikkel, beter te verstaan en ons as ouers toe te rus met die nodige om hulle gelukkige en suksesvolle grootmense te maak!!

PARENT


My child has become more open and willing to listen. Not so quick to become aggressive. I have seen the result of Mind Moves exercises and I now implement the exercises for myself as well as the kids. I have used the Antennae Mind Move on my hubby too. Thank you Zharina.

I was able to concentrate for longer periods of time and could sit still without feeling uncomfortable or fidgety where as before I could not. I found that the exercises that I did both improved my concentration and helped me to relax. Thank you Yolandi.

My kind se slaappatrone het dramaties verbeter, hy raak vinniger aan die slaap en slaap rustiger. Konsentrasie, veral in die klaskamer, het baie verbeter. Mens het te min kennis ivm ons eie ontwikkeling en gaan soek baie keer die fout op die verkeerde plek. Gedragsprobleme kan moontlik baie makliker opgelos word as ons ons eie ontwikkeling verstaan. Dankie Soretha.

Mind Moves is harde werk vir die ouers, dis nie 'n "quick fix" nie, maar om te verstaan hoekom sekere Mind Moves gedoen word om sekere resultate te verkry, maak dat die ouer self gemotiveerd is om sy kinders te help. Ons werk tans om die "core muscles" sterk te kry sodat ons 3 kinders beter kan konsentreer. Dankie Rika Terblanche vir jou geduld op my baie vrae en vir jou hulp en aanmoediging. Dit word opreg waardeer.

OUER


Ek wens ek het jare gelede al van Mind Moves gehoor. Vir die eerste keer in 9 jaar weet ek nou wat met my kind aangaan en verstaan ek dit.  Dankie Jacqueline.

OUER


Dit is iets wat die meeste ouers nie kennis van het nie en dus nie verstaan hoe goed dit werk nie. Dit is 'n moet in elke huis - selfs vir ouers ook.  Dankie Hanlie.

PARENT


A week after the school opened two of the teachers came to me and told me they have seen a marked improvement in my child in the manner in which he approaches tasks, the willingness to do work and the speed at which he finishes tasks. They also remarked that he is a lot more confident. The Occupational Therapist he is seeing once a week also noted that he is more willing to do "tasks" and to finish them. He also enjoys tasks more than he used to. At home I have noticed that he is more focused and organised. He is a lot more willing to do chores and to help even when not asked to. He appears more mature and more co-operative. I have a much better understanding of my son and why he reacts in a specific way in a specific situation. This helps me to help him better and to know what is required of me as a parent in raising him. Thank you Tania.

Ek is 'n nie-praktiserende Arbeidsterapeut, en ek is mal oor Mind Moves se gebruikersvriendelikheid! Ek kan met soveel van die evaluasie en behandeling assosieer, het baie by Rudine geleer! "Back to basics!". Dis heerlik om 'n bekwame buitestaander te hê  wat jou kind evalueer en perspektief plaas op areas wat aangespreek kan word. Die kort maar doeltreffende tuisprogram is haalbaar en uitvoerbaar vir my as ouer! Ek sien uit my kind se vordering!

PARENT


It is fascinating and no doubt very helpful for the child to know what they should do to compensate their dominance for more holistic learning. Every teacher should also be exposed to this as part of their training - it might change how they react to children in the classroom environment, create awareness that different brain dominance leads to different ways of learning, and responding and that they should teach to cover all bases.  Thank you Lindsay.

OUER


My kind se konsentrasie het verbeter asook sy akademie. Hy is minder gespanne. Baie dankie vir hierdie wonderlike program waaraan my kind kan deelneem. Lente Lotter gaan uit haar pad om my kind te help. Sy het verskriklik baie passie en kennis aangaande die program. Baie dankie Me. Lotter.

OUER


Annaliza het 'n ongelooflike passie en hart om kinders en ouers te help. Wat n voorreg vir hierdie ondervinding. Ek het so baie geleer oor my eie kind (wat ek gedink het ek ken BAIE goed). Die skolastiese vordering is ongelooflik vandat ons hiermee begin het. Ons sien uit om 'n pad te stap met Annaliza!!

PARENT


My son's concentration levels have increased significantly while his grades have jumped with between 15% - 20%. The significant transformation I saw in him made me realized the importance of Mind Moves and the gift Rika Grové has to work with children!

PARENT


The whole experience has been an eye opener, I have learnt so much in my short time spent with Igna. I am so excited to share my experiences and implement the changes in our daily routine. Between all the pressure on children being school ready, in my opinion us as moms forget that we first need the foundation, it's not about counting to 100 but about climbing up and down 100 steps. I'm so excited and relieved that by playing and having fun my children are learning so much more than by sitting at a table. I want to thank Igna and the Mind Moves team for a wonderful programme and I look forward to more sessions with Igna."

OUER


My kind is meer taak- en doelgerig. Hy leer makliker en snap selfs wiskunde makliker. Hy hou ook meer van skool aangesien sy selfvertroue verbeter het en hy voel hy bereik iets. Lekker om 'n kind te sien wat meer positief is. Hy voel ook hy bereik meer aangesien alles nou meer sin maak vir hom. Dit wat hy nou insit glo ek sal ons die resultate van sien. Dankie Amanda.

PARENT


I want to thank Mind Moves for the Study Fitness course my son attended. I can’t begin to describe what a difference it’s made in OUR lives. I say OUR because the change he experienced from then until now really took the pressure off me. It’s amazing how his reading improved. And the speed at which he reads with ACCURACY and COMPREHENSION is phenomenal!

LEARNER


Study Fitness was huge fun and I've learned a lot. It really helped me. And when I did all the exercises, my results increased by 8%. My reading speed also increased which makes it easier to study and write tests. I like the new way of summarising and it makes learning easier and more fun.
