Turner’s Principle of Movement - Opposition of Two Forces
During your Movement Lesson™ training, you will learn that there are key laws in physics that represent how we, as humans, view gravity and the movement within these principles. The human body, having no fixed points in space and as a living organism, has created more complex actions for movement, momentum and acceleration. More importantly is the realization that system mechanics of an infant reacts and therefore creates its own module of formatting human function and its relationship with gravity in a different and more pure relationship when compared to the cognitive manipulations of an adult.
Turner’s Opposition of Gravity
During your Movement Lesson™ training, you will learn The functional aspects of the human body is based largely upon the principle of the opposition of gravity. There is no doubt that Newton’s gravitational law is directed toward intimate objects that are uniform and straight whereas human dynamics have no fixed point of movement in relation to Earth’s gravitational force. In fact, any and all cognitive and developmental movement patterns are initiated, integrated and formulated on the basis of all these acts in opposition to gravity.
Learning from Movement
Because Life Moves When You Move
Sub-senses and the Human Body
System mechanics are structured and presented in the human sub-senses and include balance, counterbalance, gravity (succumb and opposing) rotation, temperature, acceleration, pain, proprioception, and spatial orientation. The sub-senses need to be initiated through various forms of movement through the central nervous system of a newborn in order to create cognitive interaction. As you will learn, all human function cannot have one without the other. However, little is known or understood regarding how significant the human sub-senses are to the initiation, development and maturity of cognitive and movement milestones and functions. The entire structure of an individual’s system mechanics and reaction to the principles of movement require a healthy development and relationship of their sub-senses. It is also important to note that any and all of the non-traditional or sub-senses can be enhanced at any stage of development well into the prime of life and beyond.
Traditional or Topical Senses
- Sound, Sight, Taste, Touch and Hearing
Non-traditional or Sub-senses
- Balance, Counterbalance, Gravity (succumb and opposing) Rotation, Temperature, Acceleration, Pain, Proprioception, and Spatial Orientation
You will learn about and integrate Turner's System Mechanic Functions in Stages of Development in the Human Body.
System Mechanics is the study of functional developmental movement patterns within biological systems based on universally understood and applied scientific principles.

Movement Lesson™ Training Program
Turner’s Principles of Movement - Perpetual Motion
During training, you will learn that there are key laws in physics that represent how we, as humans, view gravity and the movement within these principles. The human body, having no fixed points in space and as a living organism, has created more complex actions for movement, momentum and acceleration. More importantly is the realization that system mechanics of an infant reacts and therefore creates its own module of formatting human function and its relationship with gravity in a different and more pure relationship when compared to the cognitive manipulations of an adult.
Turner’s Principles of Movement - Rotation
A new and developing brain only learns from the ability to react to stimulus. A moving baby creates small, yet crucial, responses to stimuli that initiate the cerebral functions that science can barely explain today. To execute any movement that a newborn experiences, requires some degree of rotation. This rotation not only influences, but is required to create neuro-pathways in a newborn’s brain. This movement formula is not the same as the cognitive processing in an adult brain. We tend to use the fully developed adult brain as a reference for independent locomotion, intellect, and emotions that come after movement. The ability to not only acknowledge these movement patterns but to influence them as your infant is responding to its environment is crucial in early development.
- Learn the value and application to stimulus using rotation through a gentle touch.
- Learn how to evaluate rotation based off the Newborn Movement Assessment™
- Learn to recognize and initiate new systems of developmental movement patterns based off rotation.
