In Mindful Movement, exercise physiologist, somatic therapist and advocate Martha Eddy uses original interviews, case studies and practice-led research to define the origins of a new holistic field - somatic movement education and therapy ? and its impact on fitness, ecology, politics and performance. The book reveals the role dance has played in informing and inspiring the historical and cultural narrative of somatic arts. Providing an overview of the antecedents and recent advances in somatic study and with contributions by diverse experts, Eddy highlights the role of Asian movement, the European physical culture movement and its relationship to the performing arts and female perspectives in developing somatic movement, somatic dance, social somatics, somatic fitness, somatic dance and spirituality and ecosomatics. Mindful Movement unpacks and helps to popularise awareness of both the body and the mind.
