A Movement Psychology Approach to Acting.
Welcome to Yat/ Bentley Coaching in Los Angeles! Coaching services are offered by Celia Aurora de Blas who you can find out more about here.
About the Method:
Movement Psychology aka "The Yat Method" was developed by dancer/acting teacher, Yat Malmgren, at the Drama Center in London where he worked with successful actors like Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Anthony Hopkins. Malmgren's work synthesizes Laban's system of analyzing and classifying movement with Stanislavsky's Method and put them to work with Carl Jung's psychological theories of energy (Sensing, Thinking, Intuiting & Feeling).
Yat's last private student, Tom Bentley, has further developed the work and is the founder of the Yat/ Bentley approach to Movement Psychology and runs the Yat/Bentley Centre for Performance in Berkeley, CA. This is the lineage Yat/Bentley Coaching in Los Angeles comes from.
By sensitizing ourselves to how movement manifests through these four windows in our own bodies we're better able to reorganize them into different combinations. This is how we build character in Movement Psychology. See the video above to get a sense of the work we do.
