Why Imagery?

Positive mental imagery works! Using visual imagery with exercise awakens the brain in a profound way. Working with imagery is creative and benefits learning. Using active movement and rest, visualization is a skill we can build. Captivating our full attention, these actions open doors to learning that advance critical thinking and reflection. All this while discovering exercise can be a lot more effortless!
