Bookings are now open for Dhelkaya Health’s weekly Nordic Pole Walking classes in 2023.
The classes will be held on Monday morning and Thursday evening in Castlemaine, on Tuesday evenings in Harcourt and Wednesday evenings in Maldon.
Trained volunteers, described by participants as ‘patient and encouraging’ lead the groups, and teach participants Nordic Pole Walking skills during the school term.
Previous participants have noted the health benefits of Nordic Pole Walking, with one saying that he can “now enjoy long walks without aggravating my foot pain”.
“I knew I needed to do regular walking for my fitness, but never enjoyed it due to my health issues. Using Nordic Poles has made all the difference and I now enjoy walking.”, said previous participant Phil.
Another participant described Nordic Pole Walking as fun and relaxing.
“Newly retired, it was through Dhelkaya Health that I discovered Nordic Pole Walking. It’s fun and a great way to relax, plus it’s beneficial for my health and mental wellbeing. Thank you!”
Nordic poles are available for use in classes for the duration of the course, and volunteers can assist participants to purchase their own discounted poles if they choose to continue.
Limited spaces are available as classes are kept purposefully small to ensure safety and adequate support for participants.
The free Nordic Pole Walking classes start when school returns, but bookings are essential and interested participants are encouraged to sign up now.
