Jackie has been with Nordic Walking Watford since its inception in 2012 and is a regular and experienced Nordic Walker with us.

Jackie is also a qualified YOGA instructor of some 25 years and now delivers virtual ZOOM yoga classes with Nordic Walking Watford. Yoga – the perfect partner exercise to Nordic Walking – is an ancient form of exercise, originating in India about 5,000 years ago, that focuses on strength, flexibility, and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing.

The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility) and breathing.

Yoga compliments Nordic Walking perfectly in providing a strong core and balance concept.
