Ever fancied trying out Nordic Walking? Now here’s your chance. Sign up to this session to explore the correct movement and technique using strapless Nordic walking poles. Experience the benefits of being lighter and faster on your feet, reducing pressure on joints, engagement of core and an upper body workout. This session is identical to Walk 5 (so please DON’T book into both) but does go together with Walk 38, where you will have the opportunity to put your new-found skills into practice out on a walk.

Her aim as an instructor is to spread the word of the fantastic benefits of Nordic Walking, to help people become more active, mobile and enjoy being out in our beautiful countryside, along with the social side which enhances total well-being.
