This is your opportunity to get out in the fresh air for some social exercise during Lockdown. Book yourself for a 1-hour activity of your choice.
Would you like:Explorer WALX - One hour exploring the beautiful meadows and nature reserves, along the canal towpath or the Great Central Way? The possibilities are huge. Wellness WALX - One hour of wellness? Find your inner peace, intersperse your walk with gentle exercises to improve your mobility, flexibility and balance, or just come for a mindful meander. Nordic Taster - Pole walking taster? Have you seen those people using poles and wonder what it's all about? Come and find out for yourself how they can help you get more from your walk. Nordic skills check? If you have recently completed your Power Of Poles training, bring your poles along and we can do a quick check/recap of the techniques you were taught on your course. Nordic WALX - Do you just want some company on your walk? Sometimes when you are getting started you feel a bit self conscious if walking with poles on your own. Don't be deterred, let's do it together!
The possibilities are endless, so let me know if there is something you would like to try that isn't listed here and we will see what we can do! Once booked, we will contact you to confirm the plans for your session.
Everards Meadows is a beautiful green space with quality walkways and open grassland. The paths link to Route 6 of the National Cycleway, and the Grand Union Canal Towpath, as well as meandering along the banks of the River Soar.
