nordic walking

I am an International Nordic Walking Association (INWA) approved instructor. I teach on a 1:1 basis and, with my physiotherapist expertise, am in a perfect position to assess individual ability.

Nordic walking uses a technique that is similar to the upper body action of cross country skiing. Using specially designed poles to enhance your natural walking experience, Nordic walking is a whole-body exercise that can be enjoyed at many levels.

  • burns up to 46% more calories than walking without poles
  • releases tension in the neck and shoulders
  • improves posture and gait
  • strengthens back and abdominal muscles
  • tightens and shapes upper arms
  • reduces impact on joints
