Standing in lessons increases concentration

Sitting dominates our lives from a young age.

The best way to change set structures and behaviour patterns is by incorporating movement and energy into everyday life at school.

The kyBounder simulates a soft, flexible surface. Even simply swaying on the kyBounder activates a range of different muscles. Studies show that moderately moving while learning makes learning easier and increases intelligence. In contrast, sitting still and concentrating result in significantly poorer results. What’s more, kybun prevents incorrect posture and relieves school-related stress.

I prefer to stay standing, since it lets you move your feet better and you don’t have to stay sitting for the entire hour.

It makes a change; not just sitting and looking at a book all the time – you can really move about.

When I’m standing, I notice that my body moves around quite a bit. You need to constantly adjust your position to stay comfortable. When you’re sitting, you’re always tensed up and you stay in the same position. Sometimes that can distract you from learning.
