Abstract
Purpose Body awareness and interoceptive awareness are closely related constructs proposed to mediate the health benefits of mind-body therapies, e.g. mindfulness meditation, yoga, Tai Chi, Feldenkrais and others. By integrating psychological and neuroscientific concepts with experiential phenomenology and by distinguishing multiple dimensions, contradictory construct interpretations are clarified. However, no self-report instruments are available that can be used to distinguish between beneficial and maladaptive forms of body awareness. We describe the development of the Multidimensional Assessment of Interoceptive Awareness (MAIA) scales.
