How is the Edu-K programme distinctive compared to other self-development programmes?
The Edu-K programme uses specialised movements and body-based techniques to help you achieve specific goals. The emphasis of the programme is on what you want to achieve and improve. You require no special talents or skills to use the programme and your Consultant or Instructor will help make it accessible to you. Edu-K can easily be used alongside other self-development and movement-based strategies.
Is Edu-K the same as sports training, yoga or other movement programmes?
The Edu-K programme facilitates personal change to help maximise your potential in a specific area of your life, using techniques to enhance posture, alignment and freedom of movement. Edu-K is designed to integrate the senses and body rather than being an exercise workout.

The Edu-K programme is used in classrooms around the world. Edu-K activities can be used successfully as a group or with individuals throughout the school day to prepare for learning. For further information, contact your local instructor.

Many people with special needs and other learning difficulties use Edu-K, as do people who are highly skilled. The programme can be adapted to suit everyone’s individual needs. Edu-K does not diagnose or claim to help any medical or psychological condition. Its aim is to support people in moving towards their individual goals.
Can the use of Edu-K decrease my stress levels?

Sessions are tailored to meet your individual needs and may be spaced, as a guide, at 3-5 week intervals.
