Rudolph Laban spoke extensively on how the body was in connection with itself through stability and mobility, how this body was then in connection to itself through it’s concentration of exertion and recuperation, and, finally, how this body was in relationship to the outer world it lived in through the way it formed itself in space. His theory of human movement clarifies a pathway of health as it begins with a discovery of inner connections and moves into clear awareness of these connections in relationship.
His theory also considers the process by which this pathway occurs and develops means to modulate through the many changing patterns the body creates.
This workshop will explore Laban taxonomy, identification of personal movement patterns and the exploration of modulation in order to find stability and balance in mind, body and spirit.
- Identify personal movement patterns.
- Identify how being out of balance affects psycho-physical health.
- Explore and recognize ways in which to modulate in order to create stability and balance.
Limitations and Risks:
- Participants understand the nature, objectives, limitations, and results from the training are distinctly different from the formal study of the creative arts therapies
- There are potential risks when introducing creative arts into your practice without adequate training
- The creative arts therapies are an evidenced-based treatment
