Hello and welcome back, I hope you've had a good half term break. It's been great to see some of our Nordic walkers meeting up for walks, and as of today we can meet in groups of 6. We very much look forward to being able to teach you again in a face to face capacity. 

Every so often with my Nordic Walking groups the focus for the week is Space. The space around our bodies: the ground underneath us as we roll our feet, the environment we're in, the views, the trees, the sky etc and the space within our bodies: between our toes, from our hips to the bottom of our ribs, from our ear lobes to our shoulders, space we create when we open our chest and between our vertebrae when we lengthen our spine. This class I have chosen stretches and exercises that will hopefully prompt you to start thinking more about 'Space'.

Have a go next time you go our Nordic Walking on your own, take time to think about the space around you so you feel more connected with the environment you're in and thinking about the space within your body, particularly lengthening your spine everytime you push down, will hopefully help you with your technique and encourage you to walk taller.

These workouts have been designed for clients of Nordic Walking East Anglia, who have all been taught the correct Nordic Walking technique by a qualified British Nordic Walking Instructor.  They have also been shown how to perform these exercises in face to face lessons; this film is merely a prompt. Individuals participate in these exercises at their own risk and must ensure they have adequate and non-slip floor space in which to participate and agree that they have no health concerns that prevent them from taking part.  These exercises are designed to be carried out outside, however, if individuals perform the warm-up and cool-down sessions indoors there is a danger of collision with or damage to furniture, light fittings, etc. as well as potential for injury.
