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.

Bestselling author, speaker, and a leader of the Movement movement, biomechanist Katy Bowman is changing the way we move and think about our need for movement. Her eight books, including the groundbreaking Move Your DNA, have been translated into more than a dozen languages worldwide.

Her work is regularly featured in diverse media such as the Today Show, CBC Radio One, the Seattle Times, the Joe Rogan Experience, and Good Housekeeping. One of Maria Shriver's "Architects of Change" and an America Walks "Woman of the Walking Movement," Bowman consults on educational and living space design to encourage movement-rich habitats. She has worked with companies like Patagonia as well as non-profits to ensure diverse socioeconomic groups benefit from her "move more, move more of you, and move better" message.
