Katy Bowman - Exercise is Movement, but Movement is not Exercise

How to make yourself, your communities, and your planet healthier just by moving your body more
Sunday, May 27, 2018
11:30am to 1:00pm

Banyen Books & Sound
3608 West 4th Ave.


Join Katy Bowman for a discussion on how movement can not only be good for your body, but how you can put your movement to use beyond training yourself physiologically. Bring your questions and Katy will answer them.

Door Prize at this in-store event: One month unlimited class membership at Restore Human and a private training hour with one of their Kinesiologists. Restore Human ( ) is a proud sponsor of this event. Katy's lecture at Banyen will run 11:30-12:40. The book signing portion of the event will run from 12:40-1:00 and will be DYNAMIC (naturally), taking place next door at Restore Human. No need to stand in place, you can swing, jump, and squat while you wait for your book to be signed.

Katy Bowman, part biomechanist, part science communicator, and full-time mover, has educated hundreds of thousands of people on the role movement plays in the body and in the world. Blending a scientific approach with straight talk about sensible, whole-life movement solutions, her website and award-winning podcast, Move Your DNA, reach hundreds of thousands of people every month, and thousands have taken her live classes. Her books, the bestselling Move Your DNA, Dynamic Aging, Movement Matters, Simple Steps to Foot Pain Relief, Diastasis Recti, Don’t Just Sit There, Whole Body Barefoot, and Alignment Matters, have been critically acclaimed and translated worldwide. Passionate about human movement outside of exercise, Katy volunteers her time to support the larger reintegration of movement into human lives by providing movement courses across widely varying demographics and working with non-profits promoting nature education. She also directs and teaches at the Nutritious Movement Center Northwest in Washington state, consults on movement-rich community and educational space design, travels the globe to teach Nutritious Movement courses and retreats in person, and spends as much time outside as possible with her husband and children.
