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: Its Ideokinetic Facilitation is still in print.
