Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) and Barteniff Fundamentals℠ (BF)
LMA is a description and analysis applicable to all movement. It focuses on the relationship of the body and its dynamics and changing shape through space. BF is the organization and understanding of movement patterning and dynamics of your body in space. LMA and BF are not independent from one another. An LMA/BF perspective of movement allows for change. LMA/BF as a form of body and movement awareness and re-education provides an opportunity to enhance your quality of movement function and expressivity in all areas of your movement life.
Whether you are young or old, athlete or busy mom, active or not, as well as those recovering from an injury or surgery, LMA/BF offers something for everyone!
