Nordic Walking Foundations: The Feet with Hilary Warrell

Today, I’m talking to Hilary Warrell, who qualified as a Nordic Walking instructor in 2007.  Hilary loves being outdoors in nature, and is passionate about sharing all the wellbeing benefits this can bring, particularly in terms of our mental health. Slowing down, pausing, tuning in to our senses helps us connect to life as it is happening in the moment, not just in the environment around us, but in our bodies too. We can start to notice where we habitually hold tension, if we mainly breath through our mouth or nose, how loud we are in conversation, how our feet make contact with the ground....and it is this part of the body that is the subject of this episode. If you want to learn more, Hilary holds zoom workshops on the subject of feet, where she goes into more depth. These workshops are educational and contain many practical tips for mobilizing and strengthening the feet.  If you want to sign up, you can email Hilary at hgwarrell@hotmail.co.uk; or you can find her on Facebook at Nordic Walking In The Chilterns, or check out her website, http://nordicwalkingandpilates.comThe course run by Gary Ward that Hilary talked about can be found by visiting his website, Finding Centre, which also has links to other great resources relating to the feet.If you have enjoyed this podcast, I would be very grateful if you could show your support by buying me a coffee!  This enables me to continue producing these podcasts, as it will go towards covering the server and podcast platform licenses.   Not only is Nordic Walking a whole body workout, but it is also one of the safest and most sociable way to exercise.  Classes always finish up in a cafe enjoying a coffee together.
