About the Author

Bestselling author, speaker, and a leader of the Movement movement, biomechanist Katy Bowman, M.S. is changing the way we move and think about our need for movement. Her 10 books, including the groundbreaking Move Your DNA, have been translated into more than 16 languages worldwide.

Bowman teaches movement globally and speaks about sedentarism and movement ecology to academic and scientific audiences such as the Ancestral Health Summit and the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition. Her work has been featured in diverse media such as the Today Show, CBC Radio One, the Seattle Times, NPR, the Joe Rogan Experience, and Good Housekeeping.

One of Maria Shriver's Architects of Change and an America Walks Woman of the Walking Movement, Bowman consults on educational and living space design to encourage movement-rich habitats. She has worked with companies like Patagonia, Nike, and Google as well as a wide range of non-profits and other communities to create greater access to her move more, move more body parts, move more for what you need message.

Her movement education company, Nutritious Movement, is based in Washington State, where she lives with her family.


"Move Your DNA is one of the most important books I've ever read. If you've suspected 'nutritious' movement is as important to your health as nutritious food, you're right. This book explains why."--Robb Wolf, author of The Paleo Solution

"One of my favorite books on movement."---Perry Nickelston, DC, NKT, SFMA, author of Stop Chasing Pain

"Exceptionally well informed, informative, written, organized and presented, Move Your DNA is especially recommended to the attention of non-specialist general readers who are having to deal with mobility issues--especially as they grow older. It will also prove to be of immense value for both amateur and professional athletes, as well as concerned parents wanting their children to grow up whole and healthy."---Midwest Book Review

"Biomechanics. Pelvic floor. Iliopsoas. These words may spark intrigue for fitness pros, but they're like kryptonite for much of the general population. That's where Katy Bowman comes in. Bowman succeeds with a teaching and training style that is equal parts education and entertainment."---IDEA Fitness Journal

"I would recommend this book to everyone. Whether you've been doing the fitness thing for years or are an absolute beginner, you will find seeds of wisdom to help you move more and better. Move Your DNA is a paradigm shifter that acknowledges the complexity of modern movement habits while also providing helpful ways to improve and grow.---Breaking Muscle

"This informative analysis of natural exercises uses apt analogies to demonstrate how best to build strength. Move Your DNA is enjoyable, convincing, and sure to change the way fitness buffs (and couch potatoes) move."---Foreword Reviews

"Katy Bowman condenses outlandishly complicated cellular mechanics into words that you, your mother, and your children can comprehend. She helps you understand how your invisible components compose you....Once you read this important book, there is no turning back. You will never think about your human body, its habitat, its stressors, and your own humanity in the same way ever again."---Jill Miller, Creator of Yoga Tune Up and author of The Roll Model

"As a Human Biologist, I find the ideas expressed in this book stimulating. The whole notion that we no longer move in the way our hunter-gatherer ancestors moved---the way that suits our evolutionary heritage---is quite intriguing and could justifiably form the basis for more concerted academic study. It could even form the basis of what might be called 'Body Use Theory.'"---Stephen Lewis, Senior Lecturer in Biological Sciences, University of Chester, UK.

"Katy teaches us a profound yet obvious fact about human health: Just as a boring assortment of six common foods cannot give us a truly nourishing diet, neither can a few mundane tasks and force-fed exercises keep us in shape. Our greatest vitality comes from living out the vagaries of Nature's whim---and if we can't do that, we can at least simulate the variety that we are adapted to."--Samuel Thayer, author of The Forager's Harvest and Nature's Garden

"Wow! Katy clearly separates the 'ease' from the 'dis-ease' created by our captive lifestyles."---Phillip Beach, DO, author of Muscles and Meridians

"Move Your a pioneering and necessary book and an instant classic....[T]his book may provide a lightning bolt of insight for people who experience not just pain, but a range of physical symptoms or illnesses...In my experience
