Required reading for anyone with a Body This is a great book for those seeking to better understand their body mechanics! I have taken years of yoga classes and love the power of visualizing poses. With this book, I have learned so much about how my body works and how linked it is to our mental capacity or awareness. Truly, it is a holistic view of anatomy and physiology that includes emotions, intuition, psychology, culture, and spirituality. Mabel Elsworth Todd's ideas and practices served as the foundation for the field known as Ideokinesis - essentially, body-mind integration. Two of her better-known students, Dr. Lulu Sweigard and Barbara Clark refined it to a scientifically tenable system accessible for broader audiences, including children. These two women both published manuals and books in their lifetimes, but it seems that only Sweigard's Human Movement Potential is still in print.
