Kinesthetic Awareness

Also known as Kinesthesia
The awareness of the position and movement of the parts of the body using sensory organs, which are known as proprioceptors, in joints and muscles. “Kinesthetic awareness” is sometimes used interchangeably with “proprioception,” however kinesthesia does not include the sense of balance. Also, kinesthesia focuses on the body’s motion or movements, while proprioception focuses more on the body’s awareness of its movements and behaviors. This has led to the notion that kinesthesia is more behavioral, and proprioception is more cognitive.
