What We Do
Walking is Safe. With low or non-impact actions, walking is a healthy option activity for everyone with the added bonus of being fun and sociable. Turning up the intensity is easy; by increasing the speed, gradient of the terrain or distance.
Why We Walk
We walk because of the benefits that are associated with walking
- The promotion of healing – Health and Well-being; both physically and mentally.
Companionship. Friendship. Support Network. Sisterhood.
- You may have been given a referral by your GP or Health Practitioner advising you to engage in gentle exercise that expedites the healing process following; ill-health, mental anguish, anxiety, injury, surgery or aggressive treatment such as chemotherapy / radiotherapy. All of which take their toll on your well-being. Walking courses can be used to complement other therapies or treatments and can be done with your GP’s advice.
- Just taking time out from the hectic schedule of life, being there for partners, parents, children, chores. Sparing yourself some ‘You Time’ is essential and restores balance, energy and perspective your life.
- Socially fun. Many friendships occur as a result of meeting regularly to exercise together. We walk, talk, laugh and share often difficult situations in life; that somehow always seem ‘not so bad’ once you have articulated them either in your head or verbalised them. There is no need to discuss anything if all you want to do is walk and enjoy the elements of outdoors, nature and the natural phenomenon of life.
Often, we finish laughing about something that once seemed so central to our ‘happiness/unhappiness’ that nothing else seemed relevant.
