WOW! Forum "There is More to Movement Than Exercise"


Wellness Forum “There is More to Movement Than Exercise”

Katy Bowman, MS, biochemist and author, will present a WOW! Working on Wellness Radio Forum on Wednesday April 13th at 2:00-3:00 pm on KSQM FM (91.5) radio station.


“We can grasp sedentary behavior as it relates to exercise because it's easy to see the difference between exercising one hour and not exercising one hour a day, but few of us contemplate the difference between exercising one hour a day and not exercising the other twenty-three.” The other problem, as Bowman writes in her book Move Your DNA, is that “Our current model sets both food and movement as a negative. Eating food (a biological imperative) makes us feel guilty, and we turn movement (also a biological imperative) into punishment. Atonement. Clearly, this model is not working for us.”


Best-selling author, speaker and leader in the Movement movement, Katy Bowman has been changing the way we move and think about our need for movement. Her nine books have been translated into more than a dozen languages. Katy teaches movement globally and speaks about sedentarism and movement ecology to academic and scientific audiences. Her education company, Nutritious Movement, is based in Washington, where she lives with her family.
