Do you have Parkinsons?
I am a Parkinson’s Nurse Specialist and a British Nordic walking Instructor, currently doing a Research project at the Unversity of Nottingham.
I am passionate about exercising outdoors and for people with Parkinson’s to maintain and improve their fitness.
I am currently offering Nordic walking taster sessions and an 8-week course of classes to People with Parkinson’s disease.
What’s on offer?
Specifically, for people with Parkinson’s:
I can meet you at the University of Nottingham on a Thursday and go through the consent form, health questionnaire and a participant information sheet.
Classes tend to run on a Thursday afternoon (details to be confirmed).
You need to be able to walk for 20-30 minutes without a walking aid and I’ll teach you the correct technique. We take regular breaks and practice balance skills and you should notice improvements in your posture, gait, walking speed and well-being!
