 Howgills Nordic Walking with Vivienne

Vivienne is a British Nordic Walking Instructor based in Sedbergh who provides technique classes and weekly walks (Tuesday and Thursday) in the stunning surroundings of Dentdale and the Howgills.

Nordic Walking is a low impact open-air exercise that is accessible to everyone. It is a particular style of walking that uses two specially designed poles to keep the posture upright and to work your upper body and enhance your natural walking experience.

·         Increases fitness and puts less strain on joints, especially hips, knees and ankles

·         Helps mental health and provides an opportunity to get out and meet people

·         Encourages good posture and releases stress in the neck and shoulders

·         It’s a great exercise for toning arms and abdominal muscles, increasing heart rate and aerobic capacity……….and burning calories!

Vivienne’s technique classes in Sedbergh are £30 and last 2.5/3 hours and poles can be provided.

Themed walks are on Tuesdays and Thursdays, they start at 9 am and last around 2-3 hours. There is also focus on the geography, geology and history of our area and sometimes include a topical item e.g., watching the steam train pass over Arten Gill Viaduct.  Shorter, gentler walks of 1-2 hours which will still give you a great whole-body workout can also be arranged.

Walks cost £6, or £30 for 6 walks, payable in advance. Details about the walks are sent out the week beforehand via email.
