“The six hours of our workshop felt like two. Working with Kristina is a refreshing reminder of what it’s like to be truly heard. I grew as an artist and as a person from this day.” – Emerge/Express Participant, March 28, 2015
Laban Movement Analysis is a vast system that is used for studying, assessing, notating, observing, and communicating about human movement. It was originated by Rudolf Laban, passed through the hands/bodies/development of such movement greats as Irmgard Bartenieff, Warren Lamb, Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Peggy Hackney, and Carol-Lynne Moore, and continues to evolve and inform all manner of the study of movement.
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR YOU?
We use tools from this unparalleled framework to create methods and techniques to lead you to greater success. In our movement workshops, you might not even have to remove your suit jacket, because every single thing we do is influenced by how we are moving. So, we might even just look at how we are sitting in our chairs and how that affects our workday.
Here are some other simple aspects of your everyday life that we would observe through movement analysis:
- How is your workspace arranged?
- Do you incorporate recuperation into every cycle of your day?
- How are you breathing?
- What’s the relationship between your posture and how you expend your precious energy?
- Do you like to focus on one thing at a time, or do you prefer multi-tasking?
Simple, fun, easy movement activities help you to look at your worklife from a different perspective. LMA gives you the concrete tools to approach your change mindfully.
