The Certified Infant Massage Teacher Course (CIMT) is coming to the City of Trees, Boise, Idaho, host to the 2009 Winter Special Olympics.
This Accredited 3-day professional training, taught by Master Teacher Tina Allen, will be held at Wright Foot Forward, Children’s Creative Arts Center in South East Boise.
Wright Foot Forward is the culmination of more than 25 years of experience developing and teaching early childhood dance and creative movement programs. Director, Brenda Wright’s dream of offering a broader curriculum of creative arts programs for children has come true through the development of Wright Foot Forward.
Boise is a delightful blend of traditional and non-traditional sights and attractions. The City of Trees boasts one-of-a-kind museums and urban parks, a river flowing through the heart of the city and a 25-mile river front greenbelt. From art shows, annual festivals and food and wine events to historic celebrations, theatrical performances, equine clinics, bicycle races and marathons, every season shines.
Among the many unique sites to visit are the Basque Museum and Cultural Center, Morrison-Knudsen Nature Center, Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, Idaho Black History Museum and the World Center for Birds of Prey. Southwest Idaho’s easily accessible outdoors beckons the Boise visitor to enjoy nearby mountains, desert sand dunes, canyons and whitewater rafting rivers. Boise is the perfect city for a memorable visit.
A number of recreational opportunities are available in Boise, including extensive hiking and biking in the foothills to the immediate north of downtown. Much of this trail network is part of Hull's Gulch and can be accessed by 8th street. The Boise River itself is a common destination for fishing, swimming and rafting.
Bogus Basin Mountain Resort hosts several winter activities, including cross-country and downhill skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing. “Bogus” is just 16 miles (26 km) outside city limits (less than an hour drive from downtown).
In Julia Davis Park is Zoo Boise, which has over 200 animals representing over 80 species from around the world. Also not to miss, The World Center for Birds of Prey which is located just outside city limits, a key part of the re-establishment of the Peregrine falcon and the subsequent removal from the Endangered Species list. The center is currently breeding the very rare California condor, among many other rare and endangered species.
While in Boise why not do some shopping at The Cornerstone mall in Boise or Boise Towne Square Mall, both of which are major shopping attractions for Boise, Nampa, Caldwell, and surrounding areas.
Finally, an accredited infant massage certification program for professionals, caregivers and those wanting to begin a new career in the wonderful world of infant massage. The Liddle Kidz® Foundation Certification course is an intense, fun and effective way to master the core skills of infant massage.
Founded by master teacher and philanthropist Tina Allen, the Liddle Kidz® Foundation offers a new, comprehensive, research based training course and teaches students what they really need to know to become a professional infant massage teacher.
Any experienced infant massage teacher will tell you that there is a world of difference between learning how to massage a baby from a book or DVD, and knowing how to provide the best care to meet a families needs, however, there are few opportunities to learn the skills they really need from a working healthcare professional who has provided infant massage education throughout the world.
As a CIMT, you have the special opportunity to impact an infant and their family for a lifetime.
