STEPHANIE: Well hey there! Welcome to the Katy Says podcast. This is the third in a series of special episodes we’re calling Between the Lines, where Katy Bowman and Stephanie Domet explore the deeper messages in and connections between Katy’s books.
KATY: I am Katy Bowman, biomechanist, author of a lot of among other books Move Your DNA.
STEPHANIE: I'm Stephanie Domet, a chronically curious writer and radio journalist. And today we're going to talk about Move Your DNA which was actually just reissued in an expanded edition in May 2017.
KATY: Oh ... so much. I wrote and released a couple of podcasts ago why I was doing it and I offered some tips on what to do with your hands, because I had this idea that, you know ... I've never been a smoker and had to go through the process of quitting smoking but I've been around a lot of people who have and there's like this instinct, they call it oral fixation, right? Where you have to keep your hands or mouth busy. Or my take on it, it's a little bit different, which is; you might just be in the habit of doing these movements with your hands and it's the same adaptation to doing the same thing that you do with your hips when you're standing with your hips forward or whatever. Maybe it's just another one of those alignment makeovers. Where the alignment of my hand currently, it's doing what I call my social media laps on my phone. And that was exactly, that's been the biggest thing for me to realize in those, I think maybe I'm on my second week now. In the first week it was simply, the I'm standing on the phone in the grocery store, or whatever, and then grab my phone, pick it up and like the instinct was to through these laps.
