  • Gay Landeta

    Educational Kinesiologist & Learning Innovation Expert

    Gay Landeta

    Gay Landeta’s awareness of the unique needs of today’s children, together with their carers, parents and educators, began after the birth of her own children. After certifying as a Family Skills Trainer in the early 90’s she recognised that parenting skills and community engagement was not the complete answer. As she began to search for other ways to support her children’s emotional, social and academic skills transition to school she discovered the core movement program of Educational Kinesiology, Brain Gym and the concept of moving to learn. It was through this program that she could finally see changes taking place in her children’s ability to learn and self regulate and in her own wellbeing. Gay qualified as an Educational Kinesiologist and Brain Gym Instructor in 1995, commencing private practice and teaching in 1996. She started working with children at risk, consulting with several residential care programs. In working with these children, Gay not only saw the positive impact that intentional movement, especially those that related to the developmental pathways made, but also the importance of allowing the child to be their own expert. Gay pursued extensive movement related Educational Kinesiology training in developmental reflexes and sensory and perpetual skills and in theoretical learning models, and gained a Distinction in a Bachelor of Social Science (Human Services) majoring in disability and youth. Gay continues to see adults and children in her private practice in Brisbane and has taught Brain Gym and other movement based learning programs to thousands of parents and educators nationally. In addition to her private practice and her work mentoring practitioners she is on the advisory board of Flexi Flow. She is a licensed Brian Gym, Optimal Brain Organisation and Visioncircles Instructor with Brain Gym Australia and registered as a level 5 (diploma) Kinesiologist with the Australian Kinesiology Association. In her spare time Gay loves playing with her dogs, cooking from her garden, reading, yoga and art.
