The poles increase arm movement, which optimizes aerobic benefits. They are also support in up and down slopes.

4 Noble Truths

1. Suffering is a part of life
2. Suffering is caused by our attachments and avoidances.
3. Suffering can be ended.
4. Freedom from suffering is possible by following the Eightfold path.

Bigotry disguised as morality is still bigotry just as an outhouse with
marble columns is still an outhouse.

I( have been Nordic walking for quiet a few years. I feel strange without my poles! They make the difference.

I started doing Nordic walking last November. I enjoy it. You will find it gives more of your muscles a work out. eg. you core musles, arms, shoulders. It takes 2-3 times before you get the hang of it. I sugget you go try it. They will usually rent you poles for the first few times until you decide you want to purchase them.

I walk my dog so one had is busy. Nordic isn't for me at this time. I hear that it is great and I can see that you would get a better workout as you are using arms and legs. I hear it is also easier on knees for some reason.

Good Morning Everyone ~
I'm off to work in five minutes, and just wanted to check in to see if anyone has joined a Nordic Walking group. We have one here that starts Wed eve; they walk with a coach around the town with poles. If you've done it, let me know how you liked it... okay? This morning I danced for about 30 minutes, then did abit of yoga. Gotta get up at 5:15am to fit in exercise in the morning. First day back to work after spring break week, which felt like a month... so great.

So let me here from you please, and hope the moments of our day are beautiful and that we stay encouraged in making healthy choices! Warmly ~ Alaya
