Introduction to Nordic Walking in Nature with Anna Poddar

July 27, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Join us for fun, fitness, friends, and fresh air in this FREE Introduction to Nordic walking session through the trails at Fox Haven. Nordic walking uses two specially designed poles to work the upper body while walking (like cross country skiing). The poles are used by the arms to match each step taken. This low-impact workout increases your endurance, strengthens your core, arms, chest, back, buttocks, and legs, improves your posture and flexibility and it takes stress off your ankle, knee and hip joints. If you are new to Nordic Walking, then this is where you will start. A 4-part Summer walking series will be launched depending on interest in this free session.

Vaccinations are required to enjoy a safe, mask-free social environment outdoors as we respect and practice COVID precautions.

A minimum of six registered participants is required per class for the series to go ahead for the season. We will have no more than 10 participants during each class. Poles will be provided! RSVP is required to attend.

About LandBack Tax
From 2022 onward, Fox Haven will donate $2 from each event ticket to the Kikeokan Foundation to pay LandBack tax, acknowledging our access to stolen Indigenous land. The Kikeokan Foundation is an Indigenous-led initiative working to restore ancestral land and sovereignty to the Piscataway and other Indigenous communities of the Chesapeake.
