Walking On Air
Nordic Walking and Teenagers with Katie Atkins
Show Notes

In episode, I  talk to Katie Atkins who set up Nordic 4, based in Bristol, in 2017. Katie is a British Nordic Walking qualified instructor with a background of teaching in the Primary Sector. Whilst Katie  has clients of all ages, today we discuss  teaching teenagers how to Nordic Walk.  The teenage years can be challenging in so many ways and the last 18 months have compounded many of those challenges and have been particularly hard on this age group, who have had exams cancelled and been prevented from connecting with their peers at an age when they are programmed to seek independence and new friendships.  Katie’s Nordic 4 Teens group provides an inclusive setting for teens to feel successful, be themselves, find themselves and help them all to succeed in areas. To find out more about Katie's classes for teenagers, please follow this link: https://nordic4.com/activity/nordic4teens/

If you have enjoyed this podcast, I would be very grateful if you could show your support by
buying me a coffee!  This enables me to continue producing these podcasts, as it will go towards covering the server and podcast platform licenses.   Not only is Nordic Walking a whole body workout, but it is also one of the safest and most sociable way to exercise.  Classes always finish up in a cafe enjoying a coffee together.
