Grow Wild with Katy Bowman

Pandemic parenting. Zoom meetings. Virtual school. If you've coped with looking at devices all year, Katy Bowman's Grow Wild will strike you as a gentle, cautionary guide about kids' "super-sedentary" environments, and how it's counter-cultural, yet urgent, to start changing these.

 

Join us in-person at Coeur D'Alene park on Monday, August 9th at 7pm for an event with Katy Bowman's Grow Wild, a book that teaches you how to inject movement into your kids' every day lives and turn them into wild movers. Please come with a blanket or camp chair as well as your mask!

About Katy 

Bestselling author, speaker, and a leader of the Movement movement, biomechanist Katy Bowman, M.S. is changing the way we move and think about our need for movement. Her eight books, including the groundbreaking Move Your DNA, have been translated into more than a dozen languages worldwide.

Bowman teaches movement globally and speaks about sedentarism and movement ecology to academic and scientific audiences such as the Ancestral Health Summit and the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition. Her work is regularly featured in diverse media such as the Today Show, CBC Radio One, the Seattle Times, the Joe Rogan Experience, and Good Housekeeping.

One of Maria Shriver's "Architects of Change" and an America Walks "Woman of the Walking Movement," Bowman consults on educational and living space design to encourage movement-rich habitats. She has worked with companies like Patagonia, Nike, and Google as well as a wide range of non-profits and other communities to create greater access to her "move more, move more body parts, move more for what you need" message.

Her movement education company, Nutritious Movement, is based in Washington State, where she lives with her family.

 

About the Book 

From biomechanist and bestselling author Katy Bowman comes her eagerly anticipated guide to getting kids--from babies to preteens--and their families moving more, together, outside.

Our kids are moving less than any other generation in human history; indoor time and screen time have skyrocketed. As adults and kids turn more to convenient, tech-based solutions, tasks that once required head-to-toe use of our muscles and bones can be done with a click and a swipe. Without realizing it, we've traded convenience for the movement-rich environment that our physical, mental, and environmental health depends on.

Parents don't know what to do!

But there's good news: While the problem feels massive, the solution is simple...and fun!
