Integrity of Self MovementArts® (ISMA) is a system of movement education designed to encourage awareness, appreciation, and utilization of the individual as a movement instrument. In some cases it is a re-examination of how we move, which enables us to train or re-train our bodies to adopt more efficient movement habits.
ISMA examines the functionality of the human anatomy and adheres to the integrity of the skeletal and muscular structure of the body. ISMA also looks at motivation and initiation of movement.
Integrity of Self MovementArts® implements effective breathing, employs imagery, explores energy dynamics, establishes balance, and incorporates the natural theatrical elements of the instrument. Throughout an ISMA Session the language for understanding, observing, analyzing and notating movement (Labanotation) is used. This allows for a better understanding of HOW we are moving in SPACE and TIME.
Integrity of Self MovementArts® empowers you to become more appreciative of YOU.
