Nordic Walking

Nordic walking is derived from cross-country skiing and its principle is based on using two specially designed poles whilst walking. This means that during the workout the upper body is utilized, resulting in a more intensive cardio workout compared to normal walking. However because of the support from the walking sticks, you do not feel you are working out at such a high intensity, meaning a lower ‘perceived rate of exertion’. In addition, the exercise works the arms, shoulders, upper chest and back muscles through a full range of movement, lengthening muscles that are often tight. The poles are also good support and they provide stability if you have balance, knee or leg problems.

Yoga

The word yoga means ‘union’ in Sanskrit, the language of ancient India where it originated – the union of mind, body and spirit. Many people think that yoga is stretching, but whilst stretching is certainly involved, yoga is really about creating a balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This is done through a series of poses, each of which has specific physical benefits. These poses can be done quickly in succession, creating heat in the body through movement, or slowly to increase stamina and improve the alignment. In addition to these poses, yoga classes may include instruction on breathing or meditation.
