Bodystories: A Guide to Experiential Anatomy
Organized into thirty-one 'days' of pleasurable learning activities, this book helps readers experience their anatomy directly through dance- and story-related movements. Andrea Olsen, an internationally known dancer and teacher, uses reader-performed 'bodywork' experiments to show how our bodies express themselves through movement and how movement can affect our health and well-being. Amusing personal stories (body stories) enliven the discussion.
