In Brain Gymยฎ and Movement Based Learningโ„ข, blue colour is used visually to represent the Centering Dimension

CENTERING DIMENSION โ€“ BLUE

In Educational Kinesiology, to notice means to pay attention to oneโ€™s state of mind, body and emotions. It also means to be aware of the big and small changes that affect a learnerโ€™s confidence, effectiveness and ease of use of skills and abilities.

To notice something, we need to use the brainโ€™s prefrontal cortex, which is where the ability to self-reflect comes from. The ability to notice is like a muscle that grows with exercise. And since we integrate our brain and body experiences by moving, sensing, feeling and thinking, there are three dimensions to Brain Gymยฎ and Movement Based Learningโ„ข, which are represented by three colours: Yellow, Blue and Red. These represent the dimensions of Laterality, Centering and Focus, respectively. It is important to be aware that while noticing is done in the prefrontal cortex, the brain only performs optimally when all three dimensions of learning are integrated well.

In this article, we will look at the Centering Dimension.

A child who has a Centering Dimension imbalance might show signs of emotional instability or inability to organise, such as in the following true case file.

Two mothers were talking to each other about their children.

Mother 1: My son is really losing interest in his studies now, during this pandemic.

Mother 2: My son is spending a lot of time in his room nowadays. I am worried for him.

As parents of the two children above, might you feel frustrated or helpless to support your child during the pandemic? Through the Centering Dimension, you may find useful techniques for yourself in supporting your childrenโ€™s emotional and organisational strengths.

The Centering dimension is all about organising the top and bottom parts of the brain and body. When top and bottom are in sync, the learner is able to concentrate on details and see the bigger picture at the same time. This enables the child to respond rationally to external stimuli rather than to be in an automatic โ€œfight or flightโ€ state of reaction.

The dimension of Centering can be described as stability in gravity. To develop the Centering dimension skills, Energy Exercises are used, which support vertically integrating the brain and body, helping to calm and centre learners.

This teaches us how to balance the movements of our upper and lower body, improving self-awareness, organisation and, ultimately, academic ability. The ease of sitting, standing up and relaxing are supported by this dimension.

Centering is also fundamental to emotional intelligence. It’s the source of joy, passion, bonding, memory, the sense of self and the ability to relate with others. The Centering dimension allows us to organise all our emotions in posture and movement. In this way, the dynamics of feelings are simultaneously expressed and contained.

In the dimension of Centering, we ask ourselves questions to understand our feelings: Where am I in relation to other people or objects? What am I feeling? How do I relate to my physical world? Do I want to connect or be hostile? If I had to choose one word for my feelings, would it be joy, grief, anger or fear? Or would it be ease, calm, boldness, numbness, edginess or confusion?

When this dimension is in sync, we experience feeling grounded and find ourselves enabled to express our inner feelings appropriately without getting upset. We find our place and connection in the world.

In Brain Gymยฎ and Movement Based Learningโ„ข, we explore these three dimensions of intelligence in relation to the holistic brain-body system. All three of these dimensions must work together in order for the whole brain-body complex to comprehend, organise and communicate well.

To review, the three colours, dimensions and their functions are:
โ€ข Yellow/Laterality/Communication โ€“ the left-right dimension of the brain hemispheres
โ€ข Blue/Centering/Organisation โ€“ the top- bottom dimension of the Midbrain
โ€ข Red/Focus/Comprehension โ€“ the back-front dimension of the Back Brain
