For individuals who have wanted to learn eurythmy exercises but do not have someone trained in eurythmy in their area, these demonstration lectures may be a wonderful alternative to consider.

An Introduction to the Extra Lesson
with Waldorf Master Teacher Rachel Ross, M.Ed.,

$300 plus shipping



19 .mp4 video files (edited to approximately 13 hours, 45 minutes of instruction) plus a 56-page handout will be shipped on two DVDs.
This video was taken during the June, 2013 Waldorf Teacher Preparation Program offered by Prairie Moon Waldorf School in Lawrence, KS. Rachel directs the Healing Education And Remedial Training (HEART) course in Connecticut. The material presented in this course that spans two weeks is based on the premise that every child deserves the opportunity to fulfill her/his highest potential academically, and that hindrances to learning, stemming from physical and/or emotional imbalances, can interfere with a child’s ability to achieve that potential. Working with the therapeutic educational indications of Rudolf Steiner that were developed into a framework by Audrey E. McAllen that is referred to as The Extra Lesson, Rachel teaches a collection of remedial drawing, painting, and movement exercises that address and may help with remediation for difficulties experienced by students struggling to learn writing, reading, and arithmetic.
