Movement Ecology - Katy Bowman #121

Episode 121 Header.jpg

How much of your movement are you outsourcing? Biomechanist and best-selling author Katy Bowman is back on ReWild Yourself podcast to share how we can transition to a more movement-rich lifestyle by outsourcing less of our daily needs and operations.

Katy is passionate about Nutritious Movement, "a whole-body movement program that utilizes Movement Micronutrients, Movement Macronutrients, and habitat (lifestyle) changes to nourish all trillion of your body’s parts.” In this interview, we cover some of the valuable material in Katy’s new book Movement Matters where she dissects our cultural sedentism and the issues with our convenience-fueled society. We discuss simple ways to enter the world of foraging, how to stack your life to make the most of your time and energy, the luxury of exercise, movement ecology and more.
