Description

What if we can make ourselves, our communities, and our planet healthier all at the same time by moving our bodies more?

Movement Matters is a collection of essays in which biomechanist Katy Bowman continues her groundbreaking investigation of the mechanics of our sedentary culture and the profound potential of human movement. Here she widens her message and invites us to consider our personal relationship with sedentarism, privilege, and nature. Bowman explores:

  • How convenience often means less movement, not more time
  • The missing movement nutrients in our food
  • How to include more nature in education
  • The impact of adding movement to permaculture and ecological models
  • Our need for vitamin community and group movement

Unapologetically direct, often hilarious, and always compassionate, Movement Matters demonstrates that human movement is powerful and important, and that living a movement-filled life is perhaps the most joyful and efficient way to transform your body, community, and world.

Love, love, love Katy Bowman and her heart of gold!

Informative? Absolutely! You will learn volumes here but it's all spoken with a passion and an "I believe in you" spirit that got me skipping the gym and doing about a million squats to clear the cabin yard of flammable pine cones with the happiest sweat ever!
I love the principles Katy teaches but even more, I love the fabulous beginner ideas she suggests. TV is now unacceptable unless I'm simultaneously stretching my glutes on the floor. And I can't wait to find some elderly neighbors with a lemon or fruit tree for whom I can harvest.
It is an amazing concept, this outsourcing that Katy discusses throughout the text. I cannot believe how many ways it applies now that my eyes are open. I feel like I took the blue pill, or is it the red? I always mix that up. Whichever one allows you to see what's really going on (or the matrix). This is one of those special books that help us get familiar with the eye opening content that tends to abide in the "don't know that we don't know realm". And then helps us take action once we know!
Be sure to catch "Move Your DNA" and "Whole Body Barefoot". And the "Fix Your Feet" one is a lifesaver for me. I'm finally back to long walks again. Enjoy them all!
Thank you Katy! I probably walked 20 miles and cooked several dinners "reading" this one.

life changing

Really makes you question modern lifestyles and the quality of the science behind what is normal for human beings.

Stop after 3 hours

The first three hours of this book were good. Though the author is rather annoying to listen to, she has some great points. The last few hours of this book are an absolute waste of time. Pointless rambling that leads no where. About an hour of thanking people and referencing books she’s read and how the book came together. Then she sings. Why? I don’t know but it’s not enjoyable.

Eye-opening, life-changing, and accessible.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have and will recommend this audiobook to many friends. Katy Bowman's writing has always been transformative for my body, and this book, should we read it and take its message to heart, will transform the earth's body as well. This is far from an exercise book--it's a critique of our entire sedentary culture, as well as a map for changing it.

Any additional comments?

The performance is fantastic and the blooper reel at the end is a hilarious bonus!

Completely changed the way I think about movement

Katy Bowman has really helped clarify so much about the importance of movement in women's health. A great primer on why movement matters and ways we can bring more of it into our everyday lives.

Great if you're OK with difficult things

Honestly the idea of the book is amazing. It makes complete sense and I commend the author for realizing the simple point. I've started to, kind of, do my part by walking barefoot more and getting off my smart phone so much. But, it is so ingrained into us as a society that it will be very hard to change. But she has started and is forging ahead.

Best Blooper Real Ever.

Amazing book. Read excellently by the author. It's worth it just to hear the blooper real at the end. Hilarious 😂

Bowman 2020!

Would you consider the audio edition of Movement Matters to be better than the print version?

I did not read the print version

What did you like best about this story?

Katy Bowman might be my favorite audio author thus far. Her voice carries an inflection that would make reading the ingredient list on a cereal box sound interesting. Coupled with her hands-on experience and real life usage, her books are spot on.

Have you listened to any of Katy Bowman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to all of Katy Bowman's books, and her latest, Movement Matters, is just as great as the previous ones.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Katy has a knack of narrating which makes the listener feel as though they are in the same room, having a face to face conversation. She's honest about opinion vs. fact based science, and isn't afraid to admit, "here is the information, take it as you will"

Any additional comments?

Ready for book 4!

Love this book

I cannot express how beautifully his book is written, how wonderful it is to hear it rea by the author and how incredibly important the message is. I wish I could get everyone on the planet to read this book!

Off-putting 'social justice' intro...

What disappointed you about Movement Matters?

The foreword was written by a man who talks about his "privilege" being born "a white, middle-class male." Such nonsense was followed later by the influence Ms. Bowman had in his life, and how walking exposed him to many terrible things like "the faces of young black men asking for your help as they are stopped and frisked by the police for no reason at all."I continued reading despite the foreword, but found this book was not as engaging as Ms. Bowman's "Move Your DNA." "Movement Matters" seems forced. I couldn't go beyond Ms. Bowman's long, passionate explanation on how she did't say treadmills are "bad" but that they are "different." She described how she keeps herself up to date, and I believe she is right about being open to new studies and innovation; I just can't keep reading this book. I will wait for her new, updated edition of "Move Your DNA."
