What is Bal-A-Vis-X?
Bal-A-Vis-X is an acronym for
Balance, Auditory, Vision, eXercises.
Bal-A-Vis-X exercises are deeply rooted in rhythm and range from simple to complex. The majority of the exercises are done with sand-filled bags and/or racquet balls and may incorporate the use of a Brain Buddy Balance Board. The exercises can be adapted to work with children and adults of all abilities.
Bal-A-Vis-X is taught initially on an individual basis. Once the child/adult has a grasp of the foundational exercises, Bal-A-Vis-X can be performed in groups. Group settings promote socialization, demand cooperation and promote peer teaching.
