Why pay attention to embodiment at the U and How?

Can we generate a simple list of reasons WHY and HOW to pay attention to embodiment in the classroom and in our research? After each reason would the author indicate if there is evidence for/against the claim they just listed. My reason for asking us to create a list is:
1. Although we may feel we are gaining good info and experiences in our body work, we want to know if it matters for the classroom and for research.
2. It may be that in applying body mindfulness in the classroom the results may not be all good. We could also get our selves into unintended consequences that we don't want or can't handle. Therefore, I think knowing why and how to bring in body mindfulness is prior to deciding to do it.
