Biomechanical Scientist Katy Bowman

Restorative Exercise™ was created and developed by Katy Bowman, M.S., a biomechanical scientist who teaches how to reverse disease process through correct alignment and movement. Katy began her career designing safe exercise programs for injured and post-rehab patients seeking a higher level of functionality, combining her passion for physical training with her knowledge of physics, math and engineering. After earning her Masters in Science, she added the study of micro-biomechanics: the physics of blood and lymphatic flow, the relationship between neurological function and cellular health, and the role of the pelvic floor muscles in supporting organ positioning and function. She reads hundreds of texts and research studies a year in her constant search for deeper understanding of natural human movement, and posts her essays on her absolutely hilarious and educational blog Katy Says. She also has an edutaining podcast of the same name.
