This is episode 65 and today I’m here with Katy Bowman talking about the role of movement in growing wild.

Bestselling author, speaker, and a leader in the Movement movement, biomechanist Katy Bowman is changing the way we move and think about our need for movement. Her nine books, including the groundbreaking Move Your DNA, have been translated into more than a dozen languages worldwide. Her movement education company, Nutritious Movement, is based in Washington State, where she lives with her family.

    Aack! I love Katy Bowman! I have been doing a “Bowman Deep Dive” these last few months and reading all her work. I never thought natural homeschooling would lead me to reconsider exercise, footwear, and being outside, but in Katy’s work it all comes together! Can’t wait to listen.
