#40 Katy Bowman – Are You Living In A Human Zoo‪?‬ Structural Performance Podcast

    • Alternative Health

In this episode, I interview Katy Bowman, Biomechanist, Author, Blogger, Podcaster and Founder of the Restorative Exercise Institute in Ventura, CA. Katy and I talk about the effects of "living in a human zoo", how to stop using exercise like vitamins, why sleeping surfaces matter, and how to determine an appropriate "movement diet" for your body. We also delve into the intricacies of cellular loading and how the loading of each cellular cytoskeleton impacts cellular health and epigenetic expression of your DNA.

A brief bio:

A biomechanist by training and a problem-solver at heart, Katy’s ability
to blend a scientific approach with straight talk about sensible solutions
and an unwavering sense of humor have earned her legions of followers.
Katy is the founder and director of the Restorative Exercise Institute,
which teaches the biomechanical model of preventative medicine to health
professionals and laypeople worldwide, both online and in live seminars.
She is also the creator of the popular Aligned and Well DVD series, a
step-by-step visual guide to learning the basics of skeletal and body
alignment. Katy’s groundbreaking work in pelvic floor restoration has made
her particularly popular with midwives, OBGYNs, and others concerned with
pelvic mobility, strength, and health. Her award-winning blog and podcast,
Katy Says, reach hundreds of thousands of people every month, and
thousands have taken her live classes. Her books, the bestselling Move
Your DNA (2014), Every Woman’s Guide to Foot Pain Relief: The New Science
of Healthy Feet (2011), and Alignment Matters (2013), have been critically
acclaimed and translated worldwide. In response to great demand for
additional information on foot care, she released a practical exercise
guide Whole Body Barefoot: Transitioning Well to Minimal Footwear in 2015.
In between her book writing efforts, Katy travels the globe to teach the
Restorative Exercise Institute’s courses in person, and spends as much
time outside as possible with her husband and two small children.
