Nordic walking uses poles to add two major benefits to fitness walking:

  • encouraging better posture and engage a greater proportion of the upper body muscles
  • providing a lift to make walking feel easier and propulsion to increase walking speed: the nordic walker exercises at a higher intensity for less perceived effort. 

Nordic walking can be done by anyone anywhere and applications as a fitness technique, a healthy walking concept, a rehabilitative tool and sports conditioning.

Nordic walking must be learnt correctly to get the most out of the activity and Maggie's is pleased to offer a fully qualified instructor to lead its walks. 

Please call the Centre on 01242 250 611 for further information.

Pilates is a form of gentle, low impact exercise that increases core strength and muscular endurance while focusing on good postural alignment, efficiency of movement and flexibility. It emphasises concentration, balance and breathing, making it a very relaxing form of exercise suitable for all ages and abilities.  

Pilates is an effective and safe method of introducing or reintroducing the individual to physical activity, as well as promoting a sense of well being and a better ability to perform daily activities. 

Pilates classes at Maggie's are structured with the visitors in mind and small class sizes allow the participants individual attention. Josie has over ten years experience as a Pilates instructor. She is a member of the Pilates Foundation and has completed "The Pink Ribbon Program". 

Due to limited space this is a pre booked course which runs for four weeks.

For further information about dates of the next course please call the Centre on 01242 250 611 and ask to speak to a Cancer Support Specialist.

We look forward to hearing from you.
