Low Back Bootcamp In The Lavender
Mondays at 10:00 AM June 28- August 2
Instructor: Katy Bowman, substitute Michael Kaffel July 26th
Lower backs often need extra care. The way we move—not only how much we move our bodies but how we move them—is often the primary reason for aches and other repetitive injuries in this area.
These fun outdoor classes use precise form to mobilize and deeply strengthen all the parts that affect the lower back (abdominals, pelvis, hamstrings, shoulders) using a variety of positions: lying down, hands and knees, standing, and sitting. You will not only exercise this area in a way that specifically supports the spine, you will learn how to move during non-exercise time in a way that helps your torso getting stronger and stronger. Take one class or take them all!

Get Kids Moving More with Katy Bowman: an Outdoor Reading, QnA and Book Signing at Auntie’s Bookstore
Kids’ growing bodies need ample movement and they come with all the software to get it. Unfortunately our modern environments are creating the opposite of dynamic spaces and squelching their reflexes to move. Join us in-person at Coeur D'Alene park in Spokane, WA on Monday, August 9th at 7pm for an event with Katy Bowman's book Grow Wild, all about 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!

Grow Wild Launch: A Book Walk (and Talk) for Adults and Kids at Pendleton Library
Katy Bowman’s newest book about the essentialness of movement just can’t be celebrated sitting down! Her first book for parents, Grow Wild: The Whole Child, Whole Family, Nature-Rich Guide to Moving More is over 400 pages with over 200 full-color photos. On Wednesday, August 11th, it will also be one mile long! We’re bringing her new book to life in the form of a one-day, dynamic celebration: a “book walk” designed for adults and kids alike. The pages of Grow Wild will be spread out Grecian Heights Park in Pendleton, Oregon to be walked, and read, from 4:00PM – 8:00PM. Admission is free but registration is necessary. Katy will be on hand for photos, questions and booksigning, and will give an outdoor talk and Q&A from 7:00–8:00pm. A Grow Wild-based scavenger hunt will keep children engaged along the way. All are welcome to bring a blanket and spread out in the ample space of the park.

ONLINE EVENT: Sustainable Plank: How to adjust (and modify) this popular move to make it a more nutritious movement for your body
Online with Omega Institute
"Planks" are found in many different exercise practices but they're often performed in a way that can be hard on the wrists, elbows, shoulders, and lower back. They’re not as effective as they could be! In this class Katy Bowman will break down the biomechanics of this popular move part-by-part, so planks make these areas stronger and capable of handling more movement in the future. You'll learn how to make tiny adjustments from head to toe that make this movement and other similar mat-based movements better for you. You’ll also learn numerous exercises that support a 'daily plank practice," as well as how many plank-exercise parts can show up in everyday life. Instructor: Katy Bowman
