Last August, I started reading Katy Bowman’s work about biomechanics and movement ecology, about the impact of sedentary culture on human bodies, health, and function. Katy is prolific – she’s written a lot and recorded a lot (audio and video) so I’m still reading and finding a lot to learn not only from what she says but also the way she thinks and reasons. I’ve recommended various books and video clips and podcast episodes to friends and others who I think might find them useful or interesting, but I’ve been trying to figure out what I might post here in the way of entry points to Katy’s work. This recent episode of a podcast called Broken Brain on which Katy was a guest seems like a good overview of her work: https://drhyman.com/blog/2019/01/10/bb-ep37/

I also like this very short illustrated video from Katy about movement and sedentary culture:
