Invisible Impacts: The Role of Emotions in Movement Learning

By The Circus Doc

Join career circus coach and applied health scientist Adam Woolley MSc for the February Circus Smart Speaker Series lecture!

Emotions, moods and feelings have large, but under-researched impacts on motor performance and motor learning. Join us for a review of the psychology of emotions and research relating affect to performance, including Adam’s MSC research on the relationship of emotions in public physical education and circus arts arts education to self esteem!

  • How do emotions relate to movement experiences?
