Blurb/Shorttext:
In today’s competitive and performance oriented culture many athletes are faced with mind and body separation and objectification. Even physical education programs at the universities are changing into more scientific based names like kinesiology and movement sciences. In fact, movement based degrees are viewed as being subservient to other hard science degrees. This book explains phenomenology to engage the experience and the experiencer while in sport, human movement, play, and exercise. The focus of this book is to understand the lived experiences and to provide a description of how participants find meaning and mind/body connection in sport, human movement, play, and exercise. The analysis should explore the phenomenological connection between mind and body and a description of sport experience, including human movement, play, and exercise through storytelling (life narrative approach). Through phenomenology of lived experiences it may be possible to increase involvement and retention in sport, exercise, and physical activity. The information in this book may suggest innovations that could be made in sport and/or exercise education.
