Thirty-one days of pleasureable learning activities help readers experience their anatomy in an entirely new way. For two decades an international dancer and teacher of anatomy, Olsen now shows how attitudes about the body can affect well-being, and she demonstrates methods of bodywork to promote physical efficiency and healing. Her work with other teachers in experimental anatomy and in Authentic Movement also shows how movement are part of our physical and cultural heritage. Amusing personal stories ("body-stories") enliven the discussion.

This expanded edition includes a new preface and epilogue.
