Balance board rockers are adjustable enabling step-by-step degree of difficulty to challenge but not overwhelm one's balance mechanism.
Bags, Balls and Brains primarily draws from the eXercises of Bal-A-Vis-X, originated by Bill Hubert.
Bal-a-Vis-X eXercises vary in complexity and are deeply rooted in rhythm. The rhythms are the natural outcome of proper technique which requires physical movements in explicitly specific, sequenced and predictable ways.
The BAVX eXercises require full-body/bi-lateral coordination, eye
tracking, focused attention, and visual and auditory discrimination. While
doing ball and bag eXercises, participants experience multitudes of mid-line
crossings which require the 3 dimensions of the brain (left/right, back/front,
upper/lower) to work together.
BAVX eXercises one develops the ability to move eyes, hands and feet
rhythmically in relationship to one another, to attend to visual and auditory
cues and to function synchronistically in partnership and as a group.
Bal-A-Vis-X eXercises are taught one-on-one through entrainment using few words. The ‘tools’ include sand-filled bags, specialized BAVX racquetballs, and a variable difficulty balance board. Bal-A-Vis-X eXercises enable the body-mind system to experience the symmetrical flow of a pendulum and achieve brain and brain-body integration.
To this end BAVX eXercises offer individuals movement experiences that address rhythm, balance, visual tracking, sound discrimination, and fine tuning of focus, attention and cross-body coordination skills.
