ABSTRACT

The purpose of the study is to be aware of and explore simple actions in the daily lives based on ‘Elsa Gindler’s Knowledge; to awaken inner sensation. It is developed to extend ‘life reform’, through self–observation grounded in Elsa Gindler’s practical knowledge. Gindler was a somatic pioneer whose work influenced body psychotherapy. The principle of her work is breathing and relaxation. This paper focuses on habituating unconscious activities and developing them into conscious movements. Futhermore, it finds the harmonious balance of the body and mind through inner sensation and suggests everyday conscious movements. I hope these contents contribute to a natural way of living for us, rather than just using them for daily movements. When awakening inner sensation extended to dance majors seeking external beauty, I am expecting that awareness of the importance of inner sensation would be applied to carry out injury-free comfortable movements.
