More Australians are walking regularly for health and well-being.

Whether you walk to work, participate in a walking group or undertake more serious trekking and bushwalking activities, our Walking naturally workshop will help you to discover how to co-operate with your inherent physical design, avoid stress and injury and experience more ease and pleasure.

The three hour workshop will focus on the following:

  • The structure of the feet and their dynamic relationship with the ground.
  • Achieving flow through the correct employment of the leg joints: ankles, knees and hips.
  • Walking with the support of the back.
  • The constructive participation of the arms and hands.
  • The role of eyes and ears in lively walking.
  • The co-ordination of the whole self in the act of walking.

The Walking naturally workshop is an enjoyable way to discover stress-free and pleasurable walking.

There will be time to experiment, share your observations and ask questions.

When:  Saturday, November 24, 1.30 – 4.30 pm.

Where: 7 Turns Dance Studio, 159a McCrae Street Bendigo 3550
