    Ep 131: The Authors of Dynamic Aging, 5 Years Later

    It’s been five years since the book, Dynamic Aging: Simple Exercises for Whole-Body Mobility, was published and Katy thought that we should celebrate by getting in touch with her co-authors to see if (or how) movement was still playing a role in these women’s lives as they move toward their mid-80s. Katy sent all four of them some questions, and this episode contains what they had to say. Enjoy.

    How do we change such widespread sedentary behavior? For Katy, it started with changing her own level of activity. In this episode, Katy tells her story—from sixth grade all the way to age 46—explaining how she overcame a strong disliking of “have to exercise" to become the avid “want to move" person that she is today.

    Bonus: State of the Kate-y

    I have missed talking to you via the Move Your DNA podcast. But here’s the latest good news: we are bringing the podcast back on a regular basis! So, what have I been doing? Well, I have not been on a vacation, but rather I’ve been doing the equivalent of cleaning out the Nutritious Movement closets.

So glad I found this!

I first read her book called Move Your DNA and I learned so much and changed so much in my life from that. She has many books but she also has several free resources, including this podcast, which makes her knowledge al the more accessible! Cannot sing enough praises for this podcast and this woman.

The best

Katy is so knowledgeable and easy to listen to! I love how she breaks down her topics so everyone can understand. She helped me transition out of orthotics to minimal shoes.
