ESSAYS ON MOVEMENT SCIENCE, MOVEMENT ECOLOGY, AND THE NATURE OF MOVEMENT
How we can make ourselves, our communities, and our planet healthier, just by moving our bodies more.
Movement Matters is an award-winning series of essays in which Katy Bowman continues her groundbreaking exploration of the mechanics of our sedentary culture and the deep potential of human movement. With an emphasis on nature and community, this book broadens the “move more” message to discuss how our sedentarism is negatively affecting humans and the planet.
Bowman’s essays highlight our culturally conditioned preference for being sedentary by exploring everything from the missing “movement nutrients” in our kitchens, to forest schools, to the problems of keeping the human animal isolated from nature.
Suited to people interested in movement, nature, and environmentalism, Movement Matters encourages us to move more by demonstrating that human movement is perhaps the most joyful and efficient way to transform your body, life, and world.
