SELF-HELP / Motivational & Inspirational
An at-home mindful movement practice—cultivate resilience, dispel emotional blockages, and live your best life with the power of movement.

When we talk about movement, most of us think “exercise.” But the way we move our bodies—how we walk, roll, dance, stretch, connect, and take up space—is about so much more than physical fitness. Our movements impact our mental and emotional health…and when we change the way we move, we can change the way we live.

Licensed clinical professional counselor and board-certified dance and movement therapist Erica Hornthal—aka “The Therapist Who Moves You”—takes readers on a step-by-step journey, showing how a mindful movement practice can:
  • Help ease symptoms of depression
  • Build a greater sense of connection and intimacy with loved ones
  • Slow down thoughts to lessen anxiety and panic
  • Impact how—and what—we feel
Readers will learn to identify where they physically hold their emotions; understand and interpret their body’s unique language; explore bodily sensations; identify emotional blockages; and upgrade harmful thought cycles to patterns that instead foster resilience, emotional regulation, and productivity. With a chapter on disability and movement diversity, Hornthal’s guide begins to move dance therapy to a more inclusive, non-prescriptive space, helping each of us discover the kind of movement that works best for us.

Broken into three sections, “How You Move,” “How Movement is a Catalyst for Change,” and “Transforming Your Life Through Movement,” Body Aware is a revelatory transformational practice and an easy-to-use introduction to the mind-body power of intentional movement.

Story Locale: Target Consumer and Table of Contents



    FOREWORD BY NICOLE LAPERA, AKA THE HOLISTIC PSYCHOLOGIST: LePera is an alt-mental health powerhouse, with 4.1m followers on Instagram and an instant #1 NYT best-seller under her belt.



    EXPERT AUTHOR: Hornthal is a licensed clinical professional counselor and a board-certified dance/movement therapist. She was recognized by Maria Shriver’s Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement as a woman making a difference in the fight against Alzheimer’s, and was awarded the 2018 Global Excellence Award in the Alternative Medicine and Holistic Health Category from Global Health & Pharma.



    WRITTEN FOR GENERAL AUDIENCE: While most books on dance and movement therapy are written for therapists, Hornthal writes for the client in general, accessible language. 



    APPEALING TO REMOTE WORKFORCE: In a post-pandemic world, remote work is more common—as are the aches and pains that come with work-from-home life. This book alleviates physical and emotional stiffness with an easy at-home mindful movement practice.



    INCLUSIVE OF DISABILITY: Movement books often prescribe specific routines or motions that are inaccessible to people with disabilities. This book doesn’t ask readers to do specific types of motions, but to explore what’s possible for them. It offers several examples of dance/movement therapy sessions with chair-bound or elderly clients to show the versatility and accessibility of the practice. 



    BUILDS ON SOMATIC RESEARCH: Hornthal’s work is inspired by pioneering research in trauma and somatics, like Bessel van der Kolk’s The Body Keeps the Score.

ERICA HORNTHAL is a licensed clinical professional counselor, board-certified dance/movement therapist, and the CEO and founder of Chicago Dance Therapy. Since graduating with her MA in Dance/Movement Therapy and Counseling from Columbia College Chicago, Erica has worked with thousands of patients aged 3-107. Known as “The Therapist Who Moves You,” Hornthal is changing the way people see movement with regard to mental health.
