Private Classes

Mateo with Janelle

Babies learn through movement.  The intricate process of development is ready to emerge in each baby, while some elements may need to be awakened, cultivated and given attention – when the time is right.  Janelle supports what each baby has already learned to embody and also identifies what is missing, setting it in motion. The baby readily adopts the integrated movement and comes to enjoy lying on their belly, rolling, sitting upright on their own, crawling, grab a toy and play with it, coming to stand and walking, including the visual, vocal, cognitive, and somatic skills needed.

Janelle shares with parents how to enhance their baby’s development through proprioceptive touch. Touch sends messages to the brain – building maps that dictate how a person moves throughout their life. This is how to enrich our babies’ possibilities through neuromuscular learning and deepen our relationship through bonding with touch.

“Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself.”
- Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais
