Overview
What if we can make ourselves, our communities, and our planet healthier—all at the same time—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, and our need for “vitamin Community” and group movement.

About the Author:
Part biomechanist, part science communicator, and full-time mover, Katy Bowman has educated hundreds of thousands of people on the role movement plays in the body and in the world. Blending
a scientific approach with straight talk about sensible, whole-life movement solutions, her website and award-winning podcast, Katy Says, reach hundreds of thousands of people every month, and thousands have taken her live classes.
Her books, the bestselling Move Your DNA (2014), Movement Matters (2016), Simple Steps to Foot Pain Relief (2016), Diastasis Recti (2016), Don’t Just Sit There (2015), Whole Body Barefoot (2015), Alignment Matters (2013), and Every Woman’s Guide to Foot Pain Relief (2011), have been critically acclaimed and translated worldwide.
Passionate about human movement outside of exercise, Katy volunteers her time to support the larger reintegration of movement into human lives by providing movement courses across widely varying demographics and working with non-profits promoting nature education. She also directs and teaches at the Nutritious MovementTM Center Northwest in Washington state, travels the globe to teach Nutritious Movement courses in person, and spends as much time outside as possible with her husband and children.
