Body Mind Movement: An Evidence-Based Approach to Mindful Movement explores the foundational concepts behind the science of learning, motor control, and body awareness. The book features case studies, exercises to illustrate the concepts, and opportunities for critical thinking, allowing movement professionals not only to understand the science behind why techniques and modalities work, but also to explore ways of implementing these approaches with their patients.
