Exercise Less, Move More

Oct 9, 2015

In an online video, biomechanist Katy Bowman guides a tour of her home. It’s a lot of the usual stuff, but what’s missing is all the furniture. Katy and her family don’t have a couch or recliners or even chairs at the kitchen table. That’s so they have every possible opportunity for physical movement, which is a central idea of Bowman’s philosophy. She wants people to improve their health and their well being by exercising less and moving more and better. She joins us to explain how and why. (Rebroadcast)

Katy Bowman is a biomechanist and the founder and director of the Restorative Exercise Institute, an organization and online training program that teaches the biomechanical model of preventative medicine. She blogs at KatySays.com. She’s the author of several books including Move Your DNA [Amazon|Indiebound] and her latest Whole Body Barefoot [Indiebound|Amazon]

KUER's Fall Fund Drive wraps up at 7:00 p.m., so this evening on RadioWest, we're rebroadcasting another conversation about movement with physical therapist Kelly Starrett. You can find the original interview here
