Body Language, Body Mechanics, Kinesis, Non-Verbal Communications, whatever you want to call it, is a vast topic. There is a lot of written material (less on the web) that is informative. Unfortunately, most of my library books are now out of print.  Remember that most of these listed below are anecdotal and not valid research.
