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.

Eye-opening, life-changing, and accessible.
I have and will recommend this audiobook to many friends. Katy Bowman's writing has always been transformative for my body, and this book, should we read it and take its message to heart, will transform the earth's body as well. This is far from an exercise book--it's a critique of our entire sedentary culture, as well as a map for changing it.
The performance is fantastic and the blooper reel at the end is a hilarious bonus!
