A short set of balance exercises

Mary Tweed

During the last ten weeks - yes, it really has been ten weeks - we have been blessed with amazing weather.  Today has definitely turned a little colder, but the good news is that regular lessons can now resume, albeit in a smaller format and complying with new regulations.  Therefore, this will probably be the last remote lesson that I post online.  Thank you so much for your ongoing support, positive feedback and mostly for joining these classes every week.  It has made it all worth it and I am so looking forward to getting back to some face to face teaching.


Today's lesson is a short set of balance exercises.  I have recorded plenty of lessons on technique already, so this is just a short video to tag onto the end a walk, if you feel like working on your balance.  They are all very gentle and can be modified to suit the level of challenge that you require, depending on how much (or little) you use your poles for support.


I hope that you enjoy this lesson and I look forward to seeing some of you soon.

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.
