This concept was developed to ensure that those who may struggle to keep up with others on even the most gentle Nordic walks can enjoy an outdoor exercise class that combines pole walking with balance, flexibility and vital upper body strength work.
The course includes joint mobility exercises, relaxation via breathing drills and builds up gradually to improve fitness in a functional way. The strap line is:-
ADDING LIFE TO YOUR YEARS, NOT JUST YEARS TO YOUR LIFE!
Instructors who deliver this concept are trained to combine gentle nordic walking with
balance drills, resistance bands, smoveys and EXERSTRIDER strapless walking poles to ensure there are no barriers to taking part and that each participant works according to their own level of mobility and fitness. Course includes elements of mindfulness/relaxation and general wellbeing as well as how to evaluate clients for motivation and for potential funders. Great for those who want to work towards exercise referral too.
When combined with MSE this course will lead to optional level 2 circuits qualification
