I am a Chartered Physiotherapist, specialising in balance and dizziness ( vestibular problems ). I have been working for over 30 years in the musculoskeletal physiotherapy in Scotland, England, and Canada. In the last 10 years I have become a specialist in Vestibular conditions, and work with patients with balance and dizziness problems. I love the outdoors, and have always kept fit.
Nowadays I play squash, walk, practice yoga and cycle. Nordic walking is my latest discovery and it is a great form of exercise, good for the body and soul, improves balance, core strength, and general fitness and wellbeing. I would love you to join me in Linn Park with like-minded people, and see where the Nordic walking journey takes you.
Liz started her Nordic Walking experience when her twin sister booked them into a taster session to celebrate their N0th significant birthday. Some 10 years plus, having pounded many a path and mountain with her poles, she continues to enjoy the sport. ‘… maximum workout in the fresh air, while still enjoying a good chat and catch up
I have been cross country skiing for over forty years and would regularly take my poles when going for walks at any time of the year when there wasn’t any snow.
The fact that all I need is a good pair of Nordic Walking poles (and trainers or walking boots) and a simple walk would turn into an effective exercise session, whether in company or alone.
What I really love about it, is that you can pitch it at whatever level YOU want. Whether that be enhancing a gentle stroll or adding to a performance fitness regime and all points in between. And you can do it whenever you want.
I trained and worked as an occupational therapist in various areas over the years and was involved with Snowsport Scotland with the Nordic discipline for some time.
