Barefoot enthusiasts say ditching your shoes is essential for optimal whole-body function. Doctors say minimalist shoes cause injury. Who's right? What if they both are? In Whole-Body Barefoot, Katy Bowman explains how both sides are right and wrong by broadening the perspective of over-simplified "shoes are good"/"shoes are bad" arguments. Using evolutionary-based and biomechanical arguments, Bowman demonstrates that shoes, in a modern context, have purpose, but that the trade-off for protection can be health if we don't pick the right ones for our body and skill-level.Any body can transition to a less invasive shoe through thoughtful progressions of corrective exercise, movement patterns, and shoe-selection, but it is essential to learn more.Whole Body Barefoot covers:? While barefoot is natural, the surfaces we frequent most are not.* Your foot (legs, hips, etc.) have adapted to footwear, affecting more of your parts than you realize.* Swapping your shoes can expose your body to new loads and ranges of motion you might not be ready for.* Training the small, weight-bearing parts of your body requires a smart progression. With clear, science-based explanations, Bowman gets to the root of how shoes affect more than just feet, why we can't throw our old shoes out the window, and describes in detail the steps necessary to transition to more natural footwear safely and effectively. With over twenty exercises (for more than just the feet!), Whole-Body Barefoot is a must-have for anyone hoping to improve their gait, strengthen their feet, and optimize their health through whole-body alignment.

What if your lack of mobility isnt due to your age, but simply the number of years you havent been moving well? Dynamic Aging presents a new paradigm in senior fitness: your age isnt responsible for your lack of mobility; your habits are! In this powerful and effective guide to moving better, geared specifically for those 50-plus, biomechanist and movement teacher Katy Bowman details how readers can regain their balance, maintain their ability to drive, keep their feet healthy and functional, and regain mobility and reduce pain throughout their bodies. Bowmans exercises are straightforward, require no special equipment, and include modifications for readers of all fitness levels. The book also contains information on moving more in your daily life. To combat the idea of being too old to make great improvements, Dynamic Aging is filled with stories and advice from four septuagenarians who have been following Bowmans program for a decade, avoiding surgeries, eliminating pain, and regaining freedom and ease in their bodies they thought they had lost permanently to old age. From hiking mountains to climbing ladders and walking on cobblestones with ease, each of these women embodies the books message: No matter where you are starting, if you change how you move, you can change how you feel.

If you could fit our culture of convenience into a petri dish, what would it look like?Movement Matters is a series of essays in which biomechanist Katy Bowman continues to explain the mechanics of a sedentary culture and the deep complexity of the phenomenon we call movement. By exposing convenience as a way of outsourcing movements, Katy's groundbreaking work in the relationship between movement and nature expands to models that have evolved from thinking of the body as a single structure to considering it to be a cluster of a trillion bodies, and how those trillion bodies are being loaded by our habitat and how we move to interact with it.From movement nutrients to forest school to the problems with investigating parts, our culturally conditioned preference to be sedentary is explored from many angles.Thought-provoking, inspiring, and always entertaining, Movement Matters is a collection of essays conducting a deep exploration of movement and its role in science, community, work, and social responsibility. Deftly deconstructing sedentary assumptions that underlie much of our research into human health, Bowman works to reclaim our space in and responsibility to nature and ourselves.With essays on foraging, the nearsightedness epidemic, and the limitations of a parts approach to health, Bowman's gaze is sweeping and incisive, always with the underlying message that moving is powerful and important, and perhaps the most joyful, freeing, and efficient form of activism there is.
