Move Your Body, Change Your Mind with Erica Hornthal

“If you want to show up in this life, you’ve got to begin by showing up in your body,” writes Erica Hornthal in her new book Body Aware. Erica believes it’s time to redefine what movement is and how it plays a role in our lives. As a licensed clinical professional counselor and board-certified dance/movement therapist, she helps people harness the power of movement and see that the way they might currently live in their body is not the only way. Awareness is the key to change and movement is the catalyst for awareness.
