Ppt on human body movements

How does effort contribute to your moving body?  Effort: effort is a word introduced by Rudolph Laban. According to him, it is a mental impulse from which.

, “Consistent with the natural environment that produced us, nowhere in the human body is there any evidence of a straight line or flat surface. It follows then that the most logical way to train the body would be through non-linear, undulatory, tri-axial motion. We could consider this kind of movement as a neutral starting point for mechanical integrity and well-being.” (Faust/
