What we're about

We're a bunch of happy walkers who love walking.

Secrets of Natural Walking (SONW) is a uniquely effective and holistic approach to health and well-being which naturally benefits the body, mind and heart.

When we know how to take proper steps, we allow our body’s natural and beneficial functions to be activated, benefitting us mentally, emotionally, spiritually as well as physically. Through SONW, we learn how to walk naturally, using all the muscles in the body, activating the meridian and reflexology zones, connected to the earth and opening the spiritual heart with every step.

SONW can help you optimize your walking. Our bodies were specially designed with countless healing capabilities, yet due to the improper way we walk and use our bodies, and sometimes bad posture, these natural healing functions are either inactive or not fully maximized.

Walking is so simple and something we all do many times a day, yet few of us walk properly. Over time, we pick up bad habits which make the way we walk not only less efficient, but possibly detrimental to our physical health and emotional well-being. By learning the Secrets of Natural Walking, each step in our daily life becomes a beautiful opportunity to improve the condition of our whole being,

When we walk properly our mental and physical health and the body's natural healing abilities are enhanced. Walking incorrectly blocks our body's natural capability and we can suffer pain or discomfort in our joints, spine and elsewhere. In the Natural Walking workshop we look at our habitual way of walking, realise our mistakes, and learn to walk the way our bodies were designed to walk, using muscles rather than joints, thus reducing pain and other problems and enhancing the body's innate ability to heal itself. When we practise, we walk very slowly, pausing for adjustments to happen on the body. You will be surprised at how many new muscles you use, and what a good workout you get with each step! During the workshop experience the beneficial effect of Natural Walking on your mind and emotions. Natural Walking doesn't just work on the physical; its benefits can be quite noticeable on our mood, mind and spirit.
