Laban Movement Analysis, complex patterning, evolution, prevention, habits, equilibrium

André studies two exercises using Laban Movement Analysis, to attempt to get an understanding of how the Alexander technique affects the body. Descriptions are given that describe the basic Alexander principles underlying the exercises and how they integrate with each other.
