Publisher's Summary

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 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.

Love, love, love Katy Bowman and her heart of gold!

Informative? Absolutely! You will learn volumes here but it's all spoken with a passion and an "I believe in you" spirit that got me skipping the gym and doing about a million squats to clear the cabin yard of flammable pine cones with the happiest sweat ever!
I love the principles Katy teaches but even more, I love the fabulous beginner ideas she suggests. TV is now unacceptable unless I'm simultaneously stretching my glutes on the floor. And I can't wait to find some elderly neighbors with a lemon or fruit tree for whom I can harvest.
It is an amazing concept, this outsourcing that Katy discusses throughout the text. I cannot believe how many ways it applies now that my eyes are open. I feel like I took the blue pill, or is it the red? I always mix that up. Whichever one allows you to see what's really going on (or the matrix). This is one of those special books that help us get familiar with the eye opening content that tends to abide in the "don't know that we don't know realm". And then helps us take action once we know!
Be sure to catch "Move Your DNA" and "Whole Body Barefoot". And the "Fix Your Feet" one is a lifesaver for me. I'm finally back to long walks again. Enjoy them all!
Thank you Katy! I probably walked 20 miles and cooked several dinners "reading" this one.

Really makes you question modern lifestyles and the quality of the science behind what is normal for human beings.
