No skis please. This is Nordic Walking! Nordic walking is a modern sport that started in Finland. Cross-country skiers in Finland used their ski-poles whilst working in the summer to train for winter competitions. They called it “ski-walking.”

Nordic walking is a total body version of walking that can be enjoyed by all ages, abilities and fitness levels. The activity is performed with specially designed walking poles similar to ski poles.

Nordic Walking uses a very specific technique which is why We Move She Moves is offering a Learn to Nordic Walk course to teach you the basic techniques you need to get started. Taught over 4 sessions, it ensures that every person who completes the course can Nordic Walk at an intensity that is safe for them. You’ll learn how to use the poles properly to give you the biggest health benefit.

Nordic Walking is the perfect activity if you are no longer able to run, if you struggle with back pain or if you want to increase the amount of walking that you do.
