Learn to Nordic Walk at Bedale

Have you ever thought about learning to Nordic walk and wondered what all the fuss is about?  Then this is the session for you.

We have decided to hold Nordic Walking beginners sessions in the lovely village of Bedale.  This is an ideal place to try Nordic Walking.

Training is provided by Maggie, who is one of the trainers with Strolls With Poles.  Maggie is a qualified Nordic Walking Instructor and an experienced Nordic Walker, so you are in good hands.

The format for the session will be:

  • Provided with a set of poles (properly set up according to your height);
  • A short introduction about Nordic walking, its benefits and it’s origin;
  • Instruction on steps 1-5 of the INWA 10 Step Method ™;
  • A short walk in  Bedale Park;
  • A cool down/stretching session.

Beginners to Nordic Walking often have questions about it, so we have tried to answer some of the typical questions that people ask.  You can find these in the “Questions” tab above, so why not take a look.

Please contact us if you have any other queries or questions.

Strolls with poles – Nordic Walking for Fun and Fitness


What is Nordic walking?

We wrote a blog entitled “What is Nordic walking?” to explain what Nordic Walking is and the benefits to you.

Why are we walking on the grass?

Grass is an excellent surface to learn the INWA 10 Step Method™ for a few reasons:

  1. The surface is usually flat with no obstacles, which means your posture remains correct without worrying about tripping over;
  2. When placing your pole behind you it is much easier to get good purchase to push through the strap to assist your technique; and
  3. You will have beautiful scenery.

What do I need to bring?

On our website we have a FAQ (Frequently asked questions) section that will provide you with more information.
