Type of Event: CPD

‘Walk for Life’ complements the ‘Bones for Life’ programme developed by Ruthy Alon in order to address the burgeoning problem of osteoporosis.
Walking is important:- it allows us to move from one place to another, challenges our bones, increases our flexibility, strength and stamina, and offers one of life's most rewarding pleasures.
By improving the way we walk, we can also improve many of our body's other functions.
In ‘Walk for Life’ we will discover the essential elements of comfortable, efficient walking: Harmonious Co-ordination, Propulsion, Impact and Alignment. We will take a closer look at the role of the ankles, toes, knees, hip joints and the lumbar spine to find more freedom in our movement. Whilst this course complements "Bones for Life", it is not necessary to have attended "Bones for Life" in order to benefit from "Walk for Life". The course is aimed not only at teachers who wish to integrate exercises designed to combat osteoporosis into their weekly classes, but at anyone with a desire to improve their movement and posture.
Marye is co-director of Movement Intelligence UK. She trained at the Dharma Yoga Centre under the tutelage of Julie Friedeberger and later spent four years as a resident and teacher at the Mandala Yoga Ashram. She is also a teacher and trainer of the 'Bones for Life' programme.
