Menopause and Nordic Walking with Catherine Pestano
Show Notes

In today’s episode I discuss the Menopause in relation to Nordic Walking with Catherine Pestano. Catherine is a qualified INWA Nordic Walking Instructor and runs Valley Nordic Walking in Croydon.  She is also a mental health social worker by training and a Rebound Therapist.  Her passion is to help people who like her  felt nervous about exercise and were unsure if it was for them.  For far too long the menopause has been considered a taboo subject, but fortunately those outdated beliefs are disappearing.  So in today’s episode, we are going to discuss the perimenopause, the menopause and how Nordic Walking can bring multiple benefits to both.

If you would like to learn more about the menopause, then here are some links to research and information that Catherine mentioned in her interview.

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.
