Marilyn is Walking Tall

Marilyn is Walking Tall
“It’s a beautiful thing… suddenly you are standing and walking tall… it feels great to be out walking so confidently.”

Marilyn is one of five women from Canberra’s Women with Parkinson’s Support Group who participated in a Nordic Walking course in August 2015 with Kristen Pratt, Occupational Therapist, of Capital Nordic Walking.

On completion of the course the group came together for weekly Wellness Nordic Walks around Canberra’s lakes and forest trails where they enjoyed the social aspect of walking together and were able to try out some new routes and practice walking on different terrains. Walks often concluded with a coffee and a chat.

All members of the group reported growing confidence in their walking as a result of Nordic Walking and feeling stronger and fitter overall.
