As I have only attended RMT 1 & 2, RMT intensive sounded very intense of course and I wasn't sure that I could keep up, but I ended up learning quite a lot, and understood the human body as a whole better after the class, I especially loved the way you explain things in such a way that literally anyone can understand. I can't wait for RMT 3 in Kuching!

The 4 day intensive class is a very informative course taught by Moira with great knowledge and passion. The new manuals are a fantastic reference. Thank you Moira for providing me with a very useful tool in my toolkit, when working with children with developmental, learning and behavioural challenges.Helma Dalton New Zealand 2014
The Intensive training have given me an opportunity to gain deeper understanding towards RMT. Classes are very interactive, it forces me to recalled and present my understanding of RMT in creative ways. My greatest discovery was the practicality of RMT, and the effectiveness of less is more!

The RMT Intensive 2014, in Houston, Texas, was the most enriching "Intensive" or professional "Update" class I've ever taken in my 22 years of working in the field of specialized kinesiology. Having just reviewed RMTi-3 and Face the Fear in February and been thrilled by the new depth of noticing I'd gained from those classes, I was amazed that one could go even deeper by mid-March! I grew and learned so much on so many levels...
- from Moira, I had 5 days of reinforcing the language that draws out the innate knowledge from the client and, of course, the complete respect for and recognition of where the client is now and how to elicit the courage for them to attempt a next step - you're magical at this Moira! ;
- from my classmates, there was an immense camaraderie for how to spread the word about RMT, as well as a strong synergy in the sharing of our personal and professional experiences, practical information such as marketing and assessment forms which will go out to our greater RMTi community, and the creation of new ways to "do" Rhythmic Movements - including a new movement created a 9 year old girl! Thank you, all, for modeling "play" so beautifully and so safely for me.
- from one of the students at Lauren's school, we learned so much about the Fear/Paralysis Reflex - both from the student and from Thad and Lauren who worked with the student. This was an unforgettable experience - my love to all 3 of you for sharing so generously of yourselves, your time and your talents!
- and on breaks, I learned so much in just chatting with other class participants.
...and everyone seemed to be able and willing to go deeper into their experience of Rhythmic Movements as each participant took their turn demonstrating and/or receiving the various movements. So, it was not just a new depth of learning that I experienced, it was a huge level of growth, both personally and professionally, as well.
I would highly recommend attending the Intensives to anyone and everyone...no matter what your level of experience of RMT. We had quite a few participants who had just completed their RMT 1&2 a month prior to the Intensive and they offered such richness to the class...because everyone brought their own experience of life, work and play. I feel so blessed to have been in a class where everyone felt safe to learn in their own style and where respect for both the individual and the class was so beautifully modeled by one and all. Thank you, Moira, from the bottom of my heart, for making this happen! Thank you to Lauren for providing such a wonderful space and such a nurturing environment for the RMT for SR Teacher Training and the RMT Intensive.

The class was amazing! I had taken 4 classes over the last 2 years and was using RMT daily with my caseload but I still felt that I did not have the "whole picture" of understanding how these reflexes work and act on one another. The Intensive class gave me a much better understanding of the whole picture and I think the teaching style of the class, where we as participants teach each other with your guidance, really made the difference. I still have lots to learn but now I feel I have a solid foundation to build more knowledge. Thank you so much and I look forward to seeing you again in another RMT class.
One thing I forgot to tell you about RMT is that as a physical therapist, I feel I now have tools to affect tone and make long term changes in tone by using RMT. Since using these techniques, I have seen tone become more normalized in patients and function improve significantly.Jean Lindley Oakes, PT
Not only refresh the knowledge already learned, make more clear about the link between different brain areas. More understanding why those special education need children, autism, ADD/ADHD children have such behaviour and why RMT works. One of the best class I had attended.

I would highly recommend attending an RMT class to update and learn new ways of utilizing RMT techniques. In the three Intensives I have completed, each has provided a unique opportunity to learn and share ways of using RMT. Each one has been very profound for me both personally as well as professionally.Thad Trahan Houston, TX 2014
The RMT intensive was like a language immersion course in postural reflexes. Now that I've taken this course, I can see patterns in others' posture with speed and accuracy. Everyday experiences can become learning opportunities for me as I notice active reflexes in people in waiting rooms, check-out lines, etc ... The course also gave me tools to build my own practice as a local provider, and to create a work-life balance that supports me in the long-term. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to deepen their understanding of postural stability and healthy movement. The course was motivating and inspiring: I began using the tools I gained and practice there as soon as the course was over!ECB (Houston TX) 2014
I found the intensive class an eye opener for deeper, wider and clear understanding of basic brain theory, power of observations for Primitive Reflexes and their connections to efficient development and working towards Exact RMT Movements.

I personally like the intensive programme very much. It made me understand about RMTi much better. Im so much more clearer on how the brain works and the flexibility of each movement. it clarifies some facts that I was doubtful before n definitely helps as a provider.
