Podcast: Interview with Mechanist, Katy Bowman

Welcome! and thank you for listening. 

Today I am joined by Katy Bowman. Bestselling author, speaker, and a leader in the Movement movement, bio mechanist Katy Bowman is changing the way we move and think about our need for movement. Her nine books, including the groundbreaking “Move Your DNA” and “Movement Matters”, 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. Her work has been featured in diverse media such as the Today Show, CBC Radio One, the Seattle Times, and Good Housekeeping. One of Maria Shriver’s “Architects of Change” and America Walks “Woman of the Walking Movement,” she has worked with companies like Patagonia, Nike, and Google as well as a wide range of non-profits and other communities, sharing 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. Learn more at

One of my favorite things to do is observe people in the grocery store or airport.  How do their hips move?  Is their head way out in front of their body?  Are they looking down? Falling forward?  I am victim to my own scrutiny as well.  What is my posture at the end of a marathon or triathlon?  How to do I stand when giving a talk or at the counter preparing a meal? What hurts or is stiff?  Can I do movements that I did as a younger person.  How do I move my body throughout my day or on the weekends doing gardening or yardwork?

Are these changes a reflection of aging muscles or even deeper changes within our own cellular structure.  How might we affect aging by becoming more mobile?

Katy and I discuss these things and more.  She is a wealth of knowledge and ideas that I believe can help you and your family.  Enjoy the interview.  Links to her website, podcast, and books are listed below.
