I am delighted to have been asked back to deliver another ChiWalking workshop for Cowalfest this year. In this 2 hour workshop we will be looking at:

  • Posture and alignment whilst standing and walking
  • How to reduce stress and strain on your body and thereby reduce overall injury
  • How to walk more efficient and with increased energy
  • Tips for tackling hills

Hopefully this will set you up for a great week of walks across Cowal. For more information and to book (£5/person) please visit the Cowalfest Booking Page

Walking doesn’t have to be hard… and it doesn’t have to hurt. Whether you’re a seasoned hill walker, you’re just wanting to walk more or pick up tips to walk with less aches and pains, ChiWalking will help you walk with ease, energy and joy (see my blog).

Movement that makes sense. Learn how small adjustments in your movement can make a big difference in reducing impact, preventing injuries, and improving your walking efficiency.

Walk with confidence. Save your knees, feel lighter on your feet, and walk further with less recovery time. We’ll show you how to get rid of what slows you down and you’ll walk better than ever.

In this 3 hour workshop we will be looking at the essentials of ChiWalking and how it can really help our everyday walking - both on the flat and up/down hills.

What we will be covering in the workshop:

  • The essentials of ChiWalking - posture, alignment, relaxation, stride length, using our arms and listening to our bodies 
  • The difference between conventional walking and ChiWalking
  • Reducing impact and muscle fatigue
  • Efficient, pain-free movement
  • Walking with gravity, rather than against it
  • Walking at different speeds
  • How to tackle hills (up and own) with less stress on knees and back.

Following the class you will receive a short, slow motion video which will provide feedback on your individual walking style with recommendations for how to improve your walking form. This is included in the price of the workshop. For more info and to book please go to the Booking Site
