Move Your DNA
“When Move Your DNA appeared it was a breath of fresh air in whole body movement circles. A game-changer. It was jargon free, funny, punching straight to the issues and full of good science. It was also the first of Katy’s books that I read, which has caused me to read ALL OF HER WORK! I’m a convert. Move your DNA follows the real-life movement journey of a group of ladies who call themselves, ‘The Goldeners’; a group of awesome seniors who prove, on their own terms, that anyone can crawl, hang and squat they’re way back into better mobility.” Damien Norris
A new expanded edition of the bestselling Move Your DNA. Now with an exercise glossary and three-level exercise program!
Accessible and fascinating, Move Your DNA is a game-changer in the world of health, fitness, and movement science. Hailed as offering a pioneering and paradigm-shifting perspective on exercise, this book:
• explains how movement works right down to the cellular level
• examines the differences between the movements in a typical hunter-gatherer’s life and the movements in a convenience-riddled lifestyle
• discusses the issues with using exercise like movement vitamins instead of addressing the deeper issue of a poor movement diet
• contains a three-level movement program to help those of all strengths and fitness levels transition to a movement-rich lifestyle
Move Your DNA contains corrective exercises, habit modifications, and simple lifestyle changes to free ourselves from the diseases of affluence and discover our naturally healthy, reflex-driven selves.
From couch potatoes to professional athletes, new parents to seniors, readers love Katy’s humorous, passionate, and above all science-based guide to restoring your body through natural movement.
“Move Your DNA is a landmark in explaining biomechanics.” —Dr. Joan Vernikos former director of NASA’s Life Sciences Division and author of Sitting Kills, Moving Heals.
