Psychomotricity is a new academic discipline that focuses on physical activity, learning and self-development. The programme puts emphasis on “efficient learning”. Learning is possible via the exchange between the organism and its environment. Body image and sensory integration (activation and interaction of all senses) build the basis of abstract thinking. Learning or grasping numbers, letters, words or more complex contents while using several senses is efficient and is enabled through motor and perceptual learning.

Motor and perceptual learning pushes intrinsic motivation. This is the kind of motivation that exists within individuals. It leads us to create our own ideas and make our own, autonomous decisions on what to do, based on what we like and enjoy, and what we find meaningful. The individuals' inner forces are activated and their potentials can unfold. Prerequisite for this process is the creation of an inspiring and meaningful environment as well as emotional security, which can be guaranteed within the scope of psychomotor teaching and learning methods.
