Hygge Tuesday Nordic Walk

If you’ve never tried Nordic walking before, why not enjoy a ‘hygge’ nordic walk in Sherwood Forest?

‘Hygge’ is the Danish concept of surrounding oneself with things and experiences that make one feel cosy and contended.

So, as you might imagine, this is a not-so-fast session which will enable participants to appreciate the beautiful surroundings of Sherwood Forest, breathe in the pure air and immerse ourselves in nature.

It’s still Nordic walking at a fair pace but your instructor Tracy will endeavour to keep the speed manageable while still getting a workout.

Nordic walking is a fantastic full body workout, but it can be as gentle as you like. When used properly, Nordic walking poles give you the posture and stability to help you walk faster, taller and for longer.

The benefits of Nordic walking include:

  • Positive mental health and wellbeing.
  • Social activity.
  • Muscle strength.
  • Reduced pressure on joints.
  • Weight loss.
  • Great posture – alleviating back and neck pain.

You don’t need any previous experience, but if you would like further information about technique and training sessions, visit www.sherwoodnordicwalking.co.uk

Walking poles can be borrowed and technique tuition will be provided.

Each session costs £6 although monthly rates are available. Pre-booking is essential you can reserve your place by visiting www.sherwoodnordicwalking.co.uk.

Please note that this activity is for adults only and no dogs are permitted. A health questionnaire will need to be completed before your first session.
