Jacqui was first introduced to Nordic Walking, when a colleague suggested that as a Practicing Physiotherapist she should be offering Nordic Walking to her clients.
At her first lesson, Jacqui could immediately see how Nordic walking could be used for a wide variety of clients to mobilise and strengthen their bodies while maintaining good postural alignment. While recovering from knee and back injuries herself, she experienced an improvement in her own strength when walking daily with poles.
Jacqui enjoys the step by step approach to learning NW, and how people are empowered to gain knowledge of their bodies, as they see the benefits of enhancing normal patterns of movement for greater health and fitness.
Nordic walking perfectly fits Jacqui’s other passions for teaching health, both as a Physiotherapist and as Nutritional Cleansing Coach.
