Walk tall naturally with purpose

Walking and Nordic Walking at One Garden, Brighton

BOOKING is NOW OPEN for our ‘Walk Better for You !’ Sessions and our Nordic Walking Taster Sessions at One Garden, Brighton:

45 minute ‘Walk Better for You !’ Sessions

How well do you walk ? Would you like to get better exercise from walking ? Whether you walk unaided, with a stick or with one or two trekking poles, there are ways to improve how your body moves over the ground by making the movement more natural, mindful and have more purpose. Come and find out more about your posture, gait, stride, coordination, balance, strength, and breathing.

Join a ‘Walk Better for You !’ session, which starts at One Garden Brighton on our Event Lawns and is then taken around the walls of the garden and potentially and briefly outside of them. Each session runs for 45 minutes – with your own poles used, if required – in small groups allowing for high-quality teaching that will enable you to leave with more confidence in the way you walk.

Wednesdays - 2 to 2.45pm
Saturdays - 12.15 to 1 pm

£10 per person, maximum 6 people per session.

1.5 hour Nordic Walking Taster Sessions

Much more is known now about the health & wellbeing benefits of brisk walking to your mind and body.

As merely an enhanced form of natural walking, Nordic walking is suitable for all abilities and ages of people, who can walk swinging their arms. By improving your normal walking to make it more natural combined with learning how to propel the body forward using specialist (not trekking) poles, Nordic walking recruits more muscles throughout the body for the movement.

Join a Nordic Walking Taster Session, which starts on the Event Lawns at One Garden Brighton before moving into Stanmer Park. These sessions are for people who would like to try Nordic Walking to help improve their health and wellbeing. It’s a really good way to decide if you’d like to continue onto a Beginner Course.
Come and have a taste … poles are provided.

Wednesdays – 11.30am to 1pm
Saturdays – 9.45 to 11.15am.

£15 per person, maximum 6 people per session.

More about Nordic walking …

There are four broad categories of people who are likely to benefit from Nordic walking. Individuals who:

  1. are comparatively healthy, e.g. those seeking a healthier, and better quality of, life across the life course
  2. have defined health risk factors and self-reported health problems, e.g. overweight, high blood pressure, back pain and mild to moderate anxiety/depression, including carers and the bereaved
  3. live with certain long-term/progressive conditions, e.g. diabetes, cancer, heart disease, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, asthma, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis & fibromyalgia
  4. are recovering from medical treatment/rehabilitation, e.g. for cancer, heart disease, stroke and from joint replacement and similar operations.

Nordic walking is much more effective than both natural walking and walking with trekking poles, as it simultaneously gives the body aerobic (heart & lung) and resistance (muscular strength) exercise. By improving your normal walking to make it more natural combined with learning how to propel the body forward using specialist (not trekking) poles, Nordic walking recruits more muscles throughout the body for the movement. With good technique, this makes Nordic walking much better than most other forms of physical activity at exercising the whole body. Come and have a taste … poles are provided.
