We are how we move. We’ve changed our movement habits as a species. Typically our modern world has us sleeping in beds, sitting in cars and sofas, exercising for an hour a week. But our bodies are those of hunter-gatherers and we’ve lost many of the natural movement patterns that our bodies are designed to do. Walking, crawling, squatting, hanging, floor sitting.
Her logical approach to movement is that it should be ‘nutritious’ in just the way our food should. We don’t just need to move more but to move better.
This book explores the movements that benefit our bodies in an approachable, kind, gentle and non-threatening way. Katy Bowman has written a heap of brilliant books of which this is just one.
