Rudolf Laban -- artist, scientist, humanitarian, philosopher, mystic -- spent his lifetime developing a framework for understanding human movement in all its variation and complexity. He and his followers pioneered what has become Laban Analysis, the single most comprehensive system in existence for describing, understanding, and recording human movement.

The system consists of Laban Movement Analysis (LMA), Bartenieff Fundamentals (BF), Labanotation, and Motif Writing.

Within Laban Movement Analysis, the Space Harmony scales provide a foundation for full-bodied, connected movement in any direction in space. Each scale is a particular pathway around the body, touching points in space in a particular order. Much like musical scales, they serve as prototypes for all movement and can help practitioners cultivate greater strength, range, and agility. For further guidance in using the scales, seek out a certified LMA practitioner in your area, and wake up your moving self!
