Nordic Walking - Free Taster
Peter Bowen of Alderley Pilates is running some free taster sessions for Nordic walking.
More than simply walking with sticks this is a very active form of walking that encourages you to use your whole body. Gill Stuart, head of Nordic Walking UK says " it is an enhancement of ordinary walking that ensures that the whole body shares your workload, and in doing so benefits from every step you take". it does offer the chance to add something more aerobic to your Pilates exercises.
A typical walk lasts an hour to an hour and a half with a warm up period and some stretching at the end. You will recognise these exercises since many of them have equivalents in Pilates. The " sticks" are actually called poles and in Nordic Walking are behind you so you push off with the poles and this involves using your upper body rather than just your legs.
Anyway the best way is to try.
There will be free sample sessions on Saturday 21st March at the Multi Activity Games Area adjoining the Village Hall in Chelford. These will be at 10.00, 11.00 and 12.00 ( afternoon sessions will be added if needed ). The sessions will be led by Peter Bowen and he will be happy to advise about footwear and clothing.
It is planned to have walks in a number of locations including Alderley Edge and Tatton Park but we are open to suggestions for other locations. More information is coming soon but if you would like to book the taster session, please contact Alderley Pilates on 01625 860475 or email them at email@example.com
