The PhysiFun concept encourages movement, strengthening & mindfulness for children. PhysiFun-trained healthcare professional therapists run movement classes in their local communities, as well as teaching evidence based training courses for teachers, PE & sports coaches; and parents, thus creating a valuable link between schools and therapists in a day to day school setting. Contact your local Physifun-trained healthcare professional for more information.
The PhysiFun ethos
The PhysiFun Ethos is to promote movement, mindfulness and exercise within school environments in order to improve better functioning of children in learning, writing, concentration, sports skills, playground play and prevent injury in sporting activities. The PhysiFun Ethos draws from the fields of occupational therapy, physiotherapy, mindfulness, breathwork, psychology, neuroscience and exercise physiology to help provide children with opportunities to improve their core development skills of reading, writing, movement, postural control, attention, stress and strength. These strategies & exercises help children to improve their fundamental academic and early childhood development skills, as well as providing a fun way of developing and improving their executive functioning skills (attention and awareness) and stress system regulation.
