“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)

Why 
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. 

Who 
  • 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)

Goal 
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.
