Previous workshop comments included - 
 
Venue: "A great place to try out both nordic walking and yoga. These are both very invigorating activities, I left feeling motivated and relaxed."
 
 
Why did you sign up? "To get a taster of nordic walking and an awareness of the technique. Plus a good combination with the yoga to make it a workshop day - they did complement each other."
 
"Wanted the training in nordic walking so that I can attend Janine's classes. Also, I love yoga. The two go well together, it was great to do the nordic training and then do some stretching and relaxation."
 
This is the second in a series where we celebrate the colours of the seasons, the wonderful local foods of the season and the seasons themselves.
 
"I was keen to learn walking techniques and have a NW passport at the end of the day to enable me to join various group walks. I loved the combination of walking then yoga and the opportunity to have a day for myself."
 
Early Bird Price of £65 instead of £95. But hurry, offer ends by 10th September.
 
"Yes, I thought it was very productive, we covered lots of ground, literally! Both teachers had maintained the fun elements too."
 
Take time out from the frenetic  pace of our technological world for some You Time.
Enjoy the  exhilarating full body work out of Nordic walking and calming body balance of yoga practice that  keep you supple and strong. 
 
This event is perfect for those new to Nordic walking, or, as a refresher to smarten up on your Nordic walking technique or as a conversion course so that you can gain your Freedom Passport. 
 
"The Workshop gives a great introduction to both Yoga & Nordic Walking. Both instructors are informative, helpful and fun, whatever your ability, give it a go, you won't regret it." Dianne Beechey
 
Our special program is designed to take you through the 4 stages of the technique. Nordic walking is a technical fitness walk that gives your body an all over workout. You work 90% of the body's muscles and can burn up to 40% more calories than ordinary walking. This is the perfect way to workout in an outdoor sociable environment and we actively encourage chattering on the hoof!
 
You will then receive your Freedom pass and can sign up for any of the walks. Continue here to get fitter and sleeker and maybe even sign up for additional Workout Classes. Explore Berkshire with the Adventure Walks, and enjoy the social walks that continue to give you that wellbeing buzz. The program and walk types are continually being changed and added.

Kim's yoga workshop targets those places that are often forgotten. The program is mixed with stretches to get your body ready for exercise. Then, after the Nordic walking, it is a time to relax, stretch and unwind. This is a key elemnt to staying fit and supple, avoiding many muscular and ligament issues.
