Developed by jazz musician Ronnie Gardiner, the Ronnie Gardiner Method is a cheerful, structured, multi-sensory exercise method for the brain, in which rhythm and music are used to stimulate memory, balance and motor skills. Originally intended to help children with musical and motor development, the method has been used successfully in groups with stroke, Parkinson's disease, depression, multiple sclerosis, as well as healthy aging.

Taught by RGM practitioners Ronnie Gardiner (Sweden) and Mariken Jaspers (Netherlands), the course is suitable for practitioners who work with individuals or groups, in neurological rehabilitation or with older adults, who want to supplement their work with this innovative technique.

A follow up course for full recognition as an RGM practitioner will be in held in November/December (dates to be confirmed). To participate in the follow-up course, attendance at this introductory course is mandatory.
