Join Janet and/or Julie for a weekly early morning Dynamic Walk using our whole bodies and minds to explore the urban landscape at an active pace!
“Walking is a superfood. It’s the defining movement of a human"
-Katy Bowman, biomechanist
Please sign up before each class (class may be cancelled if severe rain/storm, so check mettamoves.ca at 6:15 am if uncertain)
Our Focus will be on increasing strength to sustain longer walks, improving mobility, and refining our overall walking techniques. We will incorporate a balance of dynamic stretching, opportunities to connect with others, and also time to move together in silence. Walking is not only a great form of exercise and stress reduction, it is also a great way to boost your mood, share and reflect on ideas, get to know the neighbourhood while receiving the benefits of spending time outdoors with others.
- Metta community pass members using a class pass
- Participants with a mid-high level of fitness and feel comfortable on a variety of terrain like slippery or bumpy side sidewalks, gravel, hills, puddles or dirt and are happy to jump on a bench or climb over a tree stump if needed.
- Children/babies in Strollers are welcome as long as able to keep up with the fast pace
- Dogs are welcome as long as leashed and well behaved (no jumping up on or tripping other walkers)
This walk will increase in distance and pace each week (starting at 5 k) with a goal of a long long walk of the Camino together in the Spring of 2020. Each session will include a few minutes of stretching at the studio.
