Walking is one of the most beneficial exercises – a whole body exercise – that you can do. It moves most all your muscles (rather than targeting a few), and it aids the cardiovascular system by taking some of the workload off the heart. When you move, blood flows, bringing oxygen and nutrients to tissues and bones. What better way to improve your health!
Yet many can’t walk very far (ideally 3-5 miles per day) due to injury or chronic pain. Maybe you have plantar fasciitis? Maybe shin splints, or pain in your feet, or back, or hips? Or maybe you’re fine and want to stay that way. If any of this is you, this workshop is for you!
You’ll learn all about how your alignment – yours! – affects your body from the ground up. You’ll find a way to stand move that benefits your bones and muscles, and makes you feel better. You’ll learn to move forward in a relaxed yet stable way, and how to recognize what habits you have that my be getting in the way of your progress. You’ll take home tips, tricks and resources to last you a lifetime!
