YIN YANG: working with the opposing qualities in relation to eachother to come into balance

module 1: BODY



-core /distal



-body halves

-cross lateral

integration (spirals)


body part phrasing:

describes how movement spreads through the body

-sequential: non adjacent bodyparts move one after the other

-simultaneously: all active body parts move at ones

-succesive: adjacent bodyparts move one after the other (fe body roll)

on different levels, skelatal muscular energy body breath


module 2: WEIGHT & FLOW


-weight effort

sensing, intention, identification, me/myself/my physicality, presence and the relationship to earth/gravity

-weight: ACTIVE


overcoming gravity’s pull with either a light or strong approach

-weight: PASSIVE

giving in to gravity’s pull with limpness or completely giving in with heaviness

-weight sensing:

between ACTIVE and PASSIVE weight

-relaxing and releasing into your weight to ‘sense it’

the organs, organ clock and related emotions


-baseline of effort-

continuity, ongoingness and progression

flow often deals with feeling how one controles or releases their emotions


different forms of chi and chi flow


module 3: SPACE & TIME

Effort Qualities

-space effort

thinking, attention, intellect, ideas and perception

it is environmental/other related, internal/external


-time effort

intuition, decision making and knowing the right moment to act

it requires reinvestment in the moment




kinesphere: the area that the body is moving within

(and how the mover is paying attion to it)

-spatial intention: directions or points in space that the mover is identifying or using

-geometrical observations: of where the movement is being done, in terms of emphasis of directions, places in space, planar movement

-space harmony (scales)


spatial dynamics


horizontal (side)

vertical (up/ down)

saggital (front/back)



the way the body changes shape during movement

is about form aswell as the forming process

integrating factor


modes of shape change:

describes shape change that is either motivated by self or the environment

the modes of shape change are about creating relationships


there are three forms of shape change


-shape flow:

relationship of the body to itself (all about me)

essentially a stream of concioussness expressed through movement

can be amoebic movement or habitual actions like fe. shrugging, shivering, rubbing etc



relationship where the body is directed towards some part of the environment. can be:

‘spoke-like’ (punching, pointing etc) descibes a movement that bridges to the environment and generally unfolds from multiple joints in a direct line

‘arc-like’ (swinging a tennis racket, painting a fence etc) descibes a movement to hat bridges to the envirment and generally moves from one joint in an arc



relationship where the body is actively and three dimensionally interacting with the volume of the environment (kneading bread, wringing a towel, miming a the shape of an imagenary object, avoiding laser-beams)


shape qualities:

describes “towards where” the body is changing shape

forming oriented (a process of “growing towards”)

nb space is destination oriented
