A full 25 percent of your body’s bones and muscles are from the ankle down. This is the book that points out we’ve all been neglecting the fitness of our feet!

The minimalist shoe fad has come and gone, but what remains is the fact that conventional footwear is hurting our bodies. Whole Body Barefoot helps the reader safely and effectively transition to minimal footwear, reaping the enormous benefits of freeing one’s feet without getting injured along the way.

With clear, science-based explanations and over 20 exercises, Katy lays out the issues created by conventional shoes and artificial environments, and describes in detail the steps necessary to transition to more natural footwear safely and effectively.

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.
