Learn for yourself the fantastic benefits of pole walking. A fun & enjoyable way to improve your fitness in the beautiful outdoors. Improve cardiovascular health, strengthen muscles, better posture, help with weight management

We will use the contours of Golden Valley (created by Capability Brown) to explore how poles can propel you forward on the flat, help you uphill, & support you on the downhills.
Poles will be provided.
Opportunity for social refreshments afterwards in the lovely Bakehouse cafe, within the courtyard of Ashridge House.

Additional information

This is a very inclusive session, suitable for ANY fitness level, as we will just be based in one area practicing the technique. So you can make it as gentle or challenging as you wish! There will be no need to keep up with anyone else.
