I moved to Bournemouth in 2014, having spent over 30 years based in London, working in the international insurance arena.
So what on earth does that have to do with walking, you may ask.
In my early 40s, through pressure of work and an unhealthy life style, I suffered burn-out and this provided the wake-up call for me to start looking at complementary ways to look after myself.
Through what seemed like a chance meeting at the time, I met a gentle soul in a bookshop who introduced me to a form of healing called Reiki Tummo. I decided to learn this for myself, beginning in 2006. Allied to this, soon after I took workshops in Open Heart, a practice that connects you effortlessly and joyfully to the peace and calm of your Spiritual Heart. These two practices had a dramatic impact on many aspects to my life: calmer in all relationships, more focused at work, less liable to follow negative emotions such as anger and envy etc. Overall I was much happier.
Secrets of Natural Walking (SONW) comes from the same source as Reiki Tummo and Open Heart, so I was attracted to learn this starting in 2014. As I was quite fit from regular exercise I thought I probably would not benefit as much as others. How wrong I was !
I was invited to undertake teacher training in 2015 and since then have taught workshops and individuals in London and Bournemouth.
I no longer have lower back pain that was caused not by sitting incorrectly, as many had told me, but by taking too long a stride that was causing too much twisting in my spine. On top of this my blood pressure has dropped from 148/82 to 128/70 and my breathing is easier.
Everybody and every body is different but SONW works for everyone. Experience what it can do for you.
