Description

What if we can make ourselves, our communities & our planet healthier by moving our bodies more?



Movement Matters is a collection of essays in which biomechanist Katy Bowman continues her groundbreaking investigation of the mechanics of our sedentary culture and the profound potential of human movement. Here she widens her "You are how you move" message and invites us to consider our personal relationship with sedentarism, privilege, and nature. Bowman explores:





How convenience often means less movement, not more time.
The missing movement nutrients in our food.
How to include more nature in education.
The impact of adding movement to permaculture and ecological models.
Our need for "vitamin Community" and group movement.


Unapologetically direct, often hilarious, and always compassionate, Movement Matters demonstrates that human movement is powerful and important, and that living a movement-filled life is perhaps the most joyful and efficient way to transform your body, community, and world.

About Katy Bowman

Bestselling author, speaker, and a leader of the Movement movement, biomechanist Katy Bowman, M.S. is changing the way we move and think about our need for movement. Her eight books, including the groundbreaking Move Your DNA, have been translated into more than a dozen languages worldwide.



Bowman teaches movement globally and speaks about sedentarism and movement ecology to academic and scientific audiences such as the Ancestral Health Summit and the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition. Her work is regularly featured in diverse media such as the Today Show, CBC Radio One, the Seattle Times, the Joe Rogan Experience, and Good Housekeeping.


One of Maria Shriver's "Architects of Change" and an America Walks "Woman of the Walking Movement," Bowman consults on educational and living space design to encourage movement-rich habitats. She has worked with companies like Patagonia, Nike, and Google as well as a wide range of non-profits and other communities to create greater access to her "move more, move more body parts, move more for what you need" message.


Her movement education company, Nutritious Movement, is based in Washington State, where she lives with her family.
