Walk for Life 

Will be included in the upcming Salt Spring workshop on June 23 and 24.

Also online training coming in 2018. Please inquire if you are interested

Learn to improve the movement function of a dynamic, lively, pleasurable, healthy walk.

The Walk for Life 48 hour program will include experiential indoor movement lessons taught online to convey simple yet potent movement strategies that effect beneficial long-term change in strength, posture, flexibility and sense of well-being. It also incorporates walking in nature with the use of Walking Poles as "homework", leading you to adopt natural walking for health and pleasure in your daily life.  

The full program is an Integrated training; it includes the 24 hour (6 sessions) Didactic Teacher Training which is woven into the Walk for Life curriculum. "Homework" done in small groups and self-study, round out the program.  

The program can be taken for personal education, continuing education credits, and teacher training certification.

Outlines of the course are provided plus recordings of the sessions.

Please note: additional hours for Mentoring and Practice Teaching are required for those wishing to receive a Walk for Life Teacher certificate who have no previous Movement Intelligence certification.

Improvements in balance and gait have been validated by the University of New Hampshire’s Department of Kinesiology.

“Walk for Life participants improved their walking speed, step length, and time spent on each leg during walking. They also experienced an improvement in their overall balance confidence.” 
- Erik E Swartz, PhD, ATC, FNATA 
 Associate Professor, Clinical Coordinator, Athletic Training Education Program, University of New Hampshire

"Walk and be happy; walk and be healthy. The best way to lengthen out our days is to walk steadily and with a purpose."
