Book Club: Dynamic Aging

In this month’s Book Club meeting Holly Wallis is excited to discuss “Dynamic Aging” by Katy Bowman.

Don’t be shy, please share your thoughts about this book, and your suggestions for future reads.


Every person over the age of 50 should own this book…correction, every adult should own this book.

This book is a great resource for movement practitioners and clients alike. It includes easy tricks and strategies that anyone can do to add more movement back into your life. It’s not just about exercises, it’s about functional tasks of daily life.

In this book, Katy has 4 mature women contribute experiences and anecdotes for others at this age and stage. This makes the book approachable and applicable for all readers.

As with many of Katy’s books, the movements are the same as you’ve seen before. She is not reinventing the wheel, just reinforcing her message because it is still relevant.

I love how this book is organized by type of functional movement, from balance to driving with extra goodies included specifically for the feet and hips. Readers can pick and choose a task to read about and work on, one at a time.

If you haven’t read it, do, and encourage your clients, friends, neighbors, and strangers to read it too.

What did you think about this book? Please share your thoughts and how you use it in your own practice or with your clients.

Until next time, keep reading!
Yours truly, ✍
