Seaton Sluice beach

Seaton Sluice beach is a stretch of beach which takes you north to Blyth.

The Start 

The start time is determined by the tide times and to enable us to have a large expanse of sand we will start the session at 10.00 am.

We will meet at the street parking close to The Waterford Arms, in Seaton Sluice.  Once you have completed the PARQ and been provided with a set of poles we will make our way to the sand.  You may wish to go barefoot on the beach..

Once on the beach you will be taken through the first 5 steps of the INWA 10 step technique.

The walk

After the lesson we have found that the best way to get the most out of your session is to practice what you have learned by Nordic Walking, we will walk around 2-3 miles.  The sand helps us to  highlight anything we may need to work on.
