The aim of my research is to try to develop a movement pedagogy based on attention control, body awareness, and proprioceptive sensation. The technique is used to attune an emotional state in the actor or dancer. The impulses of the proprioceptive sensations generated in this state cause the body to move. The resulting expressions become natural movements, free from the tension of mental processes. Since the method is based on movement and seeks to control mental processes, I call it affective movement pedagogy. A crucial part of it is the hatha yoga system which also helps to develop attentive skills and awareness of proprioceptive sensations. I sought to test my hypothesis through systematic research in neuroscience and the disciplines of affective psychology. In addition, my experience of learning about the dominant psychophysical training methods made a significant contribution to this research.
