Essential listening for all humans

Katy’s ability to articulate complex ideas and information in accessible and easy to understand ways is truly inspiring. Her work has transformed how I move and live more than I can put into words. It’s like a light has switched on and my eyes are now open. Thank you Katy for your generosity and putting your work out into the world.
