LOS ANGELES ( January 23, 2019)–What if your pain and lack of mobility isn’t due to your age, but your habits? What if changing how you move can change how you feel, no matter your age? Author Katy Bowman’s Dynamic Aging: Simple Exercises for Whole-Body Mobility, is an exercise guide to restoring movement, especially for healthy feet, better balance, and the activities of daily life. Biomechanist and movement teacher Katy Bowman shares exercises and habit modifications for varying fitness and mobility levels.
Bowman teaches people new ways to move their bodies. She has worked with groups of competitive athletes, young children, pregnant mamas, post-natal mamas, and breast cancer survivors. She’s lead courses for those with cardiovascular disease, bad backs, pelvic floor disorders, and thousands of people suffering with foot pain. It’s not even far-fetched to think that starting at sixty or seventy years old isn’t too late, and that tremendous improvement to your flexibility is possible.
Dynamic Aging is a guide to get you moving more and moving more of you. This isn’t a book that suggests, “Hey, you should start walking!” Instead, it helps you see which parts of your body you can start moving a tiny bit here and there, so you feel like going out to take a walk. This guide contains exercises designed to improve your movement habits through simple postural adjustments and exercises designed to challenge your body, gently, in a way that you probably stopped doing a long time ago without realizing it.
* Is geared to a 50+ audience
* Includes exercises and postural adjustments that require no special equipment and include modifications for all fitness levels
* Will teach you how to move for healthy feet, improved balance, and activities of daily life
* Will help all readers move and feel better
Alongside Bowman’s instructions are the stories, experiences, and advice of four women over seventy-five who’ve used these principles and exercises for years. Along the way they found recommended surgeries unnecessary, regained strength and mobility, and ended up moving more than they did when they were a decade younger. From hiking in the mountains to climbing ladders and walking on cobblestones with ease, each of these women embodies the book’s message: No matter where you’re starting, if you change how you move, you can change how you feel.
