    Ep 134: Are You a Healthy Deviant?

    Ep 134: Are You a Healthy Deviant?

    Katy knows that many of you listeners are working on cultivating behaviors, practices, and a community to support their health, especially when it comes to moving more, despite a culture that doesn’t seem to support your efforts. So Katy asked Pilar Gerasimo, award-winning health journalist, founding editor of Experience Life magazine, and author of a new book The Healthy Deviant: A Rule-Breaker’s Guide to Being Healthy in an Unhealthy World to talk to her about just that.

    Ep 133: How to Get Your People to Move More

    Ep 133: How to Get Your People to Move More

    A question Katy gets regularly is something along these lines: I’d like to move more but my partner, kids, office mates, etc. are not interested. What do I need to do to get them on board? Katy has always felt this question would be best directed toward someone in the psychology field so, in this episode, Dr. Diana Hill joins Katy to give you some firm tactics and gentle actions that you can take to get your "others" on board.

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

    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.

    Ep 130: It's Both What You Walk IN And What You Walk ON

    Ep 130: It's Both What You Walk IN And What You Walk ON

    A lot of people have foot pain to the point they can’t move the rest of their body which is why foot issues are a risk factor for locomotion disabilities, poor balance, falling, and eventually loss of agency, independence and quality of life. We cannot continue to neglect the movement of our feet.

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.
