Bethel will host 5th Bal-A-Vis-X training on campus

April 16th, 2018

NORTH NEWTON, KAN. – The Bethel College Academy of Performing Arts (BCAPA) will host its fifth Bal-A-Vis-X training on the Bethel campus, January 12-14, 2018.

Bal-A-Vis-X, from Balance/Auditory/Vision Exercises, comprises a series of about 300 simple exercises that enable “the whole mind-body system to experience the symmetrical flow of a pendulum,” according to Bal-A-Vis-X material.

Bal-A-Vis-X is for educators, parents, health professionals, and anyone interested in healing the mind through the body. Some studies have shown Bal-A-Vis-X to help children with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).

More information about Bal-A-Vis-X can be found at

Bill Hubert, who taught in the Wichita school system for 30 years, developed Bal-A-Vis-X. Over more than 20 years, he has trained teachers, occupational and physical therapists, speech/language pathologists, counselors, nurses, parents and many others in the method.

Hubert is the instructor for the 20-hour BCAPA-sponsored Bal-A-Vis-X training in foundation, intermediate and adaptive exercises. The training will be in Memorial Hall on the Bethel campus.

The final registration deadline is Jan. 8, 2018, although if you register before Nov. 20, it’s worth $15 off the $180 fee per person.

Also, when groups of three or more register together, they pay only $170 per person up to the Jan. 8 deadline.

The fee covers snacks and water during breaks over the three days of the training, along with some printed materials.

There aren’t many places in the United States where you can experience this kind of training at such a low cost, says Carmina Suter of Newton, who is organizing and coordinating the training on behalf of BCAPA.

The January training at Bethel is approved for 24 contact hours applicable to RN, LPN and LMHT re-licensure, under the Kansas State Board of Nursing, and conforms to the continuing education standards for any health professional licensed by the Kansas Board of Healing Arts and the Kansas Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board.

Wichita (USD 259) educators can apply for points through the district, while those from Newton (USD 373) should contact an administrator for more information. Midway Motors of Newton is sponsoring five USD 373 teachers for the training.
