Body Mechanics for Kids (BMK) has designed in person and on-line programs for both Middle School and High School to help teachers help kids understand their bodies as they grow and change.

Feeling a lack of coordination is a big reason kids won’t try something. They don’t want to look goofy. Along with this can come a feeling of lack of control or stability which can come from lack of strength in some areas because their bodies are changing. At this point muscular compensations and faulty patterning can set in.

The materials in this program will help students who are not active, as well as students who are involved in dance or sports, to feel more competent and more in control of their movements. Our aim is to set our youth up for life-long confidence in knowing how their body works best.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Focus: The BMK On-Line Program gives teachers tools to help educate kids about the important role optimum postural alignment plays in the mental and physical well-being of each of us.

What will participants learn?: The program integrates Science, Social Studies and Physical Education Curriculm. It explores what does good posture look and feel like? Participants will use critical-thinking skills, problem-solving skills and and practice kinesthetic feedback.

How will participants learn?: Movement preparation helps students excel. The program incoporates study content, hands-on activities and excercise routines. Participants will explore self-assessment techniques that help to select and modify activities to enhance one’s physical capacity and competency.

Why is this program important?: Mindfulness in movement is the best preventative care for long-term health and mobility. Better understanding quality movement helps to avoid unnecessary wear and tear of the body, prevent injuries and chronic pain.

Physical literacy is the ability to demonstrate multiple proficiences in many environments

Body Mechanics for Kids – The Gateway to Physical Literacy  

Understanding Body Mechanics can be the key to motivating kids to participate more physically in life. Along with movement vocabulary we need movement fluency and physical proficiency.

Body Mechanics for Kids (BMK) introduces tools to help your students gain confidence and competence in their movement in a variety of physical activities, in multiple environments that benefits the development of the whole person.
