The subject will involve further study and practice of ideokinetic processes to foster a balanced alignment of the skeletal system and re-education of neuromuscular habits in movement. Students will also investigate the mechanical principles underlying the design of kinetic imagery and the relationships of both bone and muscle groups in relation to postural alignment and efficient physical coordination. Students will experience moving from a source of imagery, emanating from Skinner Releasing Technique, ideokinesis and/or anatomical based releasing techniques. Other kinetic practices, such as Feldenkrais will also be studied. Students will study the development and use of imagery in movement and postural integration, components of good alignment, core stabilisation as well as structure, function and integration of the upper body structures.
Participation and contribution to course work (30%); practical examination (30%); written requirements totalling no more than 2000 words (40%). Hurdle requirement - 80% attendance.
