After surgery for breast cancer in 2012, I was looking to find an exercise that didn’t involve the gym and came across Nordic walking and I was hooked from the out set. Straight away I could feel the positive effect that Nordic walking has, not only on the body, but on my mental wellbeing as well.
I became stronger and more confident. It is incredibly therapeutic walking in a group, making new friends whilst enjoying being out in the lovely countryside, and exploring previously unknown routes.
In 2016 I trained to become a Nordic walking Instructor and enrolled in a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy course, finishing the graduates coaching. I now enjoy delivering a varied WALX Programme around St Albans.
As an Instructor I hope to bring the same love of Nordic walking and exercising outdoors to others. It is a fantastic way to help lead a healthy, active, and happy life.
