Learn to Nordic Walk on the beach
Why not learn to Nordic Walk on the Beach. Have you heard about Nordic Walking or seen people walking with poles? Do you like walking with a group of friendly like minded people? Then this is the session for you. If you want to read more about Nordic Walking then take a look our article “Why try Nordic Walking?“.
Learn to Nordic Walk session
The format for the session will be:
- Provision of a set of poles (properly set up according to your height);
- A short introduction about Nordic walking, its benefits and its origin;
- Instruction on steps 1-5 of the INWA 10 Step Method ™;
- A 2-4 mile walk on the beautiful Cresswell Beach;
- A cool down/stretching session.
Beginners to Nordic Walking often have questions about it, so we have tried to answer some of the typical questions that people ask. You can find these in the “Questions” tab above, so why not take a look.
Please contact us if you have any other queries or questions.
Cresswell Beach is part of the longest stretch of sand in Northumberland, Druridge Bay. It is also one of the best and our favourite.
The start time is determined by the tide times and to enable us to have a large expanse of sand we will start the session at 10 am.
We will meet in the car park across the road from The Drift Cafe. This is also the start point of the walk. You may wish to go barefoot on the beach.
We will make our way down to the beach, where we will teach the first 5 steps of the INWA 10 step technique.
After the lesson we will practice what we have learned by walking around 2-3 miles. The sand will highlight anything we may need to work on.
The Drift Cafe
As is tradition, we end with a trip to a cafe. This one is one of our favourites, The Drift Cafe. It has great homemade food, especially the scones and cakes.
Hope to see you there.
