This activity comes from Scandinavia and is very beneficial for health. Nordic walking uses a pair of poles to help propel you along by accentuating the natural movement of the arms. It improves posture by working the whole of the upper body and helps breathing.
A session during a walk in the Forêt des Andaines with a sports coach will help you to learn how to co-ordinate your steps and use the poles correctly. You will also learn simple warm-up exercises to strengthen your joints as well as how to use the poles to stretch your muscles.
