Katy Bowman is a bestselling author and speaker whose work is focused on changing the way we move and think about our need for movement. She has written nine books on the importance of a diverse movement diet, including Move Your DNA, Dynamic Aging and Grow Wild. Her latest book, Rethink Your Position (May 2023), is a guide to how our bodies move, why we need to move more, and the intentional steps anyone can take to feel, move and even think better—one step at a time.

Bowman teaches people about movement globally and speaks about sedentarism and movement ecology to academic and scientific audiences such as the Ancestral Health Symposium and the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition. Her work is regularly featured in national and international media including The New York Times, NPR, The Today Show, The Guardian, The Joe Rogan Experience, Good Housekeeping and many more.
