Nordic walking is an exercise using ergonomic poles that uses the same movements. It is unparalleled as an aerobic exercise because the body is being strengthened not only in the muscle groups of the legs and hips, but also the shoulders, core, and arm muscle groups. The regimen lowers blood pressure and improves the body’s use of oxygen. When traversing hills or uneven ground, it is strengthening the ankles and challenging your vestibular system- a sensory system in the inner ear that enhances balance and coordination.
This class begins April 5th, when the weather permits, on Wednesdays at 3 PM with Doreen Rakowski.
Please meet Doreen in the Lantz Lounge.
It is an outside course that involves walking on the levee.
