Bothmer Tuning Your Being through Movement


In 1922 as he arrived to teach at the first Waldorf school in Stuttgart, Germany, Count Friedrich von Bothmer developed a series of thirty exercises that trace and enhance the developing movement faculties of growing human beings.

David Newbatt’s colorful, energetic drawings reveal the dynamism and life of the active space surrounding a human being in movement. Newbatt worked with Bothmer Movement practitioners to create his exciting, groundbreaking images. They do not cover all of Bothmer’s work and are not intended as instructional aids. Rather, they constitute an artistic endeavor that indicates the invisible movement forces at work around us as human beings.

Includes 50 color drawings
