We are a small, inspiring and focused press on issues most central to human potential and our connection to the world.



Propriometrics Press is a small but mighty press located in Washington State. We published our first title, biomechanist Katy Bowman’s Alignment Matters, in 2013. Since then, our books, like Bowman’s Move Your DNA and Dynamic Aging, have become bestsellers and award-winners, been translated into 12 languages (and counting!), and have brought radical concepts like furniture-free living and body-part sedentarism into mainstream media.

Other titles include the award-winning Eat Well, Move Well, Live Well by Roland and Galina Denzel, Entropy Academy by Alison Bernhoft, and Dawn Again and its young adult adaptation Wolf Girl by Doniga Markegard. Click here to see our full catalog, and here to learn more about our authors.

Propriometrics Press uses small, independent providers whenever we can. Our books are distributed by Chelsea Green. All our books are printed on recycled paper in the USA.

In the fourth grade, Bowman crushed Ms. Franich’s summer reading contest by submitting over 800 pages read (a tiny construction paper book was given for every 25 pages). She ceremoniously stapled each “25 pages” book next to her name, creating a line that (obnoxiously, to many) went off of the bulletin board and trailed down toward the floor.

To this day, she needs spellchecker for words like bulletin, but adores books, especially books by people with brilliant, convention-defying ideas that inspire her to evolve.



Penelope is an editor living in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Having worked for over a dozen years in book publishing, she is passionate about making text of all kinds excellent, and she is particularly delighted to be working with Propriometrics Press on books with radical and transformative messages for our minds, bodies, and communities. She is homeschooling her two young children, and she divides her time between the laptop, the banjo, the woods, and the ocean.



Stephanie Domet was born on August 30, which makes her a Virgo, which makes her very keen to alphabetize your belongings, clean out your junk drawer, and generally tell you how you could be doing everything more efficiently. She feels most at home with a to-do list in one hand and a smart phone in the other. In this way, she is particularly suited to work as Operations Manager at Propriometrics Press. When she’s not solving problems, sending emails, or teaching herself how to make spreadsheets, she’s writing novels, practicing piano, or at the beach. She vastly prefers working with books to anything else she’s ever done.


Zsofi Koller is a web and print designer living in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. She is particularly fond of moving her body, reading, and designing beautiful things–so getting to create the designs for a small press with the mission of Propriometrics Press is a dream come true. On a given day you can find Zsofi getting schooled by her twin daughters, walking her hyperactive young dog by the ocean, and dancing to Daft Punk at her standing desk.

Emma Jane spends her life nestled between the Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. She enjoys exploring natural movement on the trails, supporting her local food community, and cultivating vibrant intentional spaces. With a passion for helping to share important and meaningful stories, EJ is delighted to contribute her energy to the Propriometrics Press team.
