Katy Bowman & Movement Ecology: EMP Podcast Episode 7

In last week’s episode we focused on the neuroscience of nutrition.

This week we are focusing on how Movement Nutrition and the broader subject of movement ecology with world renowned biomechanist Katy Bowman.

Katy is the author of numerous books, blogs, and podcasts on natural movement and related subjects. Her concept of movement nutrition revolutionized my own approach to movement practice and teaching and how I think about natural movement.

In this podcast we discuss:

  • How to find the balance in movement. What is the lowest necessary dose of different movement nutrients for health, and when do we reach too much?
  • This leads us to the question of how do we even begin to understand all the movement nutrients out there.
  • The problem of nourishment, nutrients and stimulants and reductionist vs ecological systems based thinking.
  • The importance of different types of visual processing nutrition.

This was a very interesting conversation for me, getting to dig in on some topics we both care deeply about, and whether you’re already familiar with Katy’s work or not you’re in for a treat.

Next week we will be featuring our podcast with Stephane Vigroux, one the foundational figures in the parkour world, so look for that in our weekly newsletter.

But, you don’t have to just listen. Get involved in our natural movement practice.

We still have spots for our online training, and we have a new webpage up to break down all the details for you about our offers so check that out here.

And later this week will be sharing our full schedule of seminars for 2018. Our schedule includes Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Amsterdam, Sydney, and other spots across the globe.
