In episode 51, I am talking to Tina Gibbons, a BNW instructor from the tranquil North Cotswolds. Tina has also been practising yoga since she was at school and has been teaching it for over 20 years. She particularly likes the many overlaps between NW and yoga, such as good posture, a strong core, balance and stability plus flexibility and strength and therefore includes yoga inspired stretching into her nordic walking sessions.
In this episode, Tina talks us through a couple of breathing exercises that we can practice at home and then try to incorporate into a nordic walk.
Tina can be contacted on: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tina mentioned the book, Breathe by James Nestor.
