    First Published in 1998. The aim of this book is to reawaken awareness of the body feels; rekindle imagination; provide starting points for both developing greater self-awareness and creating expressive movement. 'Moves' suggests a wealth of exercises which stem from the natural movement of the body and are therefore accessible to anyone. As you respond to the material in this book you may notice changes in yourself, such as greater physical and emotional freedom, a lessening of anxiety and constriction, a new found sense of flow, flexibility and strength and a greater responsiveness to others and to the environment.
