Walk Well

“Trees know when we are close by.

The chemistry of their roots

and the perfumes of their leaves

pump out change when we're near...

when you feel good after a walk in the woods,

it may be that certain species are bribing you”
― Richard Powers The Overstory

 ENERGYBODi  Walk Well is about exploring our wellbeing

through the outdoors. Our connection to ourselves within nature,

through embodiment and our senses,

from posture and gait to gear and equipment.

We offer sessions in

Nordic Walking,

Forest bathing,

Mindful movement in Nature,

Nature meditation.

Concious dance in nature.

Nordic Walking has a very specific technique and is not just walking with poles.

FIND OUT MORE. The whole body workout is really noticeable while creating a dynamic postural alignment.

 Fine tune your sensory feedback to bring you into the present with

awe, wonder and gratitude so that we can learn to see, not just look. 

 Savour and smell the moment,  feel wind, sun and rain on our skin, feel alive.

 

Wilderness is our true nature. 

“This is not our world with trees in it.

It's a world of trees, where humans have just arrived.”
― Richard Powers , The Overstory

Dancing in Nature

We have some very exciting news! We now have an outdoor space available to us as a base for our walking and a place for us to dance too! We have a stunning view looking down the valley back toward the studio (5/10 mins drive away). 

We have access to this stunning farmland and the fantastic surface of a horse menage or lawn for us to dance on with huge thanks to Susan Ashworth and daughter, Lynda, as many of you will know are avid ENERGYBODies!  

  As you can see from the stunning photos below, what an amazing view and so much space for us to dance with normal size classes, socially distanced.

I am so looking forwards to this!   Announcement to follow soon with dates.

 “ In my afternoon walk I would fain forget all my morning occupations and my obligations to Society. But it sometimes happens that I cannot easily shake off the village. The thought of some work will run in my head and I am not where my body is — I am out of my senses. In my walks I would fain return to my senses. What business have I in the woods, if I am thinking of something out of the woods?”
― Henry David Thoreau

Nordic Walking.

Do you often see fellow ramblers Nordic walking when you're out and about? Turns out those walking poles don't just make you look like a pro, they can also help you take your walk to the next level and burn more calories. 

Nordic Walking originated as a cross-training exercise for elite cross-country skiers – it is an enhancement of ordinary walking but making the exercise of walking twice as effective by using poles. The use of the walking poles means that the upper body muscles are used much more, as well as the legs, helping to propel the walker along and whilst the walker works harder, because of the support given by the poles, it feels easier!!! A win-win if ever there was one!

 To get the greatest benefit from Nordic walking it is really important that you are taught the correct technique.  If you already are an ENERGYBODi member reserve your spot 

If you would like to join us without a membership we have two options of

 FAST PASS 4 - where you buy four sessions for use within 4 weeks

 FAST PASS 10 which replaces our previous Multipass and day pass, 10 sessions to use in any session during the six week course duration, great value and flexibility. 

Here is a great article on Nordic Walking
