Book Club: Taking Root to Fly

We are on a roll with our monthly book club reviews! In this month’s Book Club meeting Holly Wallis is sharing her thoughts on Irene Dowd’s Taking Root to Fly.

Please jump right in to share your thoughts about this book. We love to hear from you.

I have had this book in the very tall pile of book club selections for close to three years, and all I have to say is “why did I wait so LONG???”. This book is everything my movement nerd brain craves. If you love exploring movement through anatomical and biomechanical concepts, then this book is right up your alley.

It is beautifully written and simply assembled into bite-sized articles that are easy to follow and applicable to your work with every client, and in your own body. A mix of complex concepts and palatable imagery, you gain a clearer understanding of how the body works from top to toe. In only 86 pages, Dowd has been able to create an “anatomy book” for movement professionals that makes sense and deepens the ability for all to explore movement with an entirely new perspective.

If you haven’t read it yet, read it now. If you have read it, please share your thoughts. I would love to hear what you think and what really resonated with you. I will be writing an article inspired by my favorite snippet for the next Movement Monthly.
