Move Your DNA with Katy Bowman

Katy Bowman and guests talk about the ways in which movement can be an intrinsic part of grieving, and how we could look at our experience of grief as grief in a sedentary culture. Don Morris talks about the movements involved in deathcare, body preparation, home funerals and burial, and Breanna Trygg of Wild Grief talks about how natural movement, and especially moving in nature, helps teens process bereavement. Plus, Katy answers listener questions on walking well after a shattered patella, and alignment during pregnancy.

Hi friends. It’s me, Katy. I am ready for—in the process of, really—a social media prune. Many of you are picking up what I’m putting down on line and I wanted to talk to you about why and how I’m transitioning away from/downsizing my social media even though I’m someone whose business seems to depend on it.

Katy Bowman and Dr. Ihi Heke talk about movement and indigenous approaches to health, including Heke's Maori framework--that our relationship with where we’re born and where we live has implications for our health. This wide-ranging and fascinating conversation also explores non-person-centric approaches to health, and the idea that exercise depends on a cultural context. Dr. Heke explains what it means to be a river person, and how that has shaped how he lives. Plus, Katy answers listener questions on running, minimal shoes, and plantar fasciitis, and swimming and alignment.

Wild food forager Sam Thayer talks with Katy Bowman about how he began foraging out of necessity, but now his body craves the nutrition—and nutritious movement—he only gets from foraging. Plus, he runs us through the physical work involved in making maple syrup and harvesting wild rice. Mileage for those who want to listen on the go: This podcast clocks in at around 75 minutes… so head out for a six-miler and let Katy and Sam keep you company.
